challenge month 2016Hi everyone! Today we are starting the second week of our Reading Challenge Month! If you want more details on the event itself, including specifics on how to enter, check out the kick off post that ran earlier today.

Starting tomorrow we move on to Around the World Challenge Week! This week we will be reading books that are set in countries other than your own. To help you out, we have a huge list of Favorite International Books that includes some of our favorites, plus lots of reader suggestions. They are broken down by region and we have everything from Norway to Antartica listed, so you have lots of options.

This week is sponsored by Riptide Publishing. They are giving away an amazing prize!

Riptide is giving away paperback ARCs, so our lucky winner will get some of these books way before they are even published! Books include:

  • Bounty: The Complete Series by Christine d’Abo
  • What Remains by Garrett Leigh
  • Assassins: Discord by Erica Cameron
  • Shatterproof by Xen Sanders,
  • Can’t Hide From Me by Cordelia Kingsbridge, October 3
  • Wolf’s Clothing by E.J, Russell, October 10
  • Friendly Fire by Cari Z, October 17
  • Change of Address by Jordan S. Brock, October 24
  • Queer and the Restless by Kris Ripper, October 31
  • Interborough by Santino Hassell, Oct 24
  • Hotline by Quinn Anderson, Oct 31

(Note: Riptide isn’t able to mail the paperbacks internationally, so an international winner will receive ebook copies of these books at the time of release instead)

And all entries throughout the month qualify you for the grand prize sponsored by Dreamspinner Press. They are giving away a Kindle Fire loaded with all of their summer releases!
