Hi gang! Well, our third annual Reading Challenge Month is officially over! I can’t believe how fast this month always flies by. We had four weeks of fun challenges and read lots of wonderful books. I especially enjoyed reading all your comments, as well as the fabulous reader mini reviews! So a huge thank you to all the readers who participated!
I also have to thank our incredible sponsors: Dreamspinner Press, Riptide Publishing, Interlude Press, and NineStar Press, as well as the huge group of self published authors. Without them we would never have had all the fabulous prizes for this event. And they were fabulous! We awarded 14 prizes, including books, gift cards, and a loaded kindle.
Congratulations to all our winners and thank you so much to everyone who took the time to comment and to share their reviews. Here is a recap of our winners!

Thank you for hosting the Reading Challenge Month, it’s been really fun.
I am so glad you enjoyed it!
Thanks for another great challenge week!
Congrats to all the winners
Thank you, this has been a fun month
You are so welcome! And congrats on your win!
I enjoyed the month! Congratulations to the winners.
Thanks Kareni! Glad you enjoyed it!
I enjoyed it. It also shows how difficult it is to explain and critique a book without too many spoilers. I’m glad I don’t have to do it every week, because I did feel like I had to read the ones I chose and sometimes I wasn’t in the mood so I don’t envy you. Thank you for reviewing these books every day.
I am glad you enjoyed it and thanks for participating!
Thanks for another fun reading challenge month. Like last year, I was able to find books that I loved that might haven’t read otherwise. And congratulations to ALL of the winners!!
You are welcome! I have to say, I have found some gems all three years that I might not otherwise have read. So I find it a fun month for me too!
Congrats to all of the winners. Already looking forward to next year. 🙂
Thanks so much Barbra!
Thank you for the great posts and fun month of challenges. Congrats to all the winners =)
You are welcome! Thanks for participating!
This was such a fun event, again!, and I’m so grateful to everyone who made it so, from all the wonderful reviewers to the generous authors and publishers and to my fellow readers. I’m sad it’s over! Of course we have all the great reviews to always look forward to, but I was thinking this morning how it’d be so fun to meet up here once a month in a blog post for sharing a review or two of what we’d been reading. I always have fun seeing what people are reading, and I love the dialogue that goes along with it. Thank you so much, everyone, and congratulations to all the winners. Happy reading, all!
Oh yes, that would be fun! I love reading comments and hearing what people think. Maybe we can do a monthly “what I’m reading” type post for everyone to share favorites. I’ll give it some thought and see if I can pull something together.
Thank you to all of you at Joyfully Jay for organizing such a great challenge Month, also thank you to the authors and publishers for donating awesome prizes. I love this challenge Month i had fun participating and read some great books and added more to my TBR/Wish list 😉 Congrats to all the winners!! Hopefully there will be a challenge month next year? If so count me in 🙂
Yep, this is our third year and I plan to bring it back again next year. So glad you enjoyed it!
