It’s February. It’s the Month of Love. It’s Valentine’s Day. So yes, the mini challenges this month are going to be romance themed . . . well, at least two of them are. The third you can interpret any way you like, in case you’re one of those who doesn’t enjoy romances (it’s okay, we still love you).
The first challenge is to find an unconventional love story. Not the same old boy meets girl, they fall in love, everything works out happily ever after. Maybe one of the characters is the villain? Maybe it’s an alien sci-fi. I don’t know. But find something a little out of the ordinary 🙂
Challenge #2 is the one that can be interpreted any way for those of you who don’t enjoy romances. I’m sure a murder mystery would have some red on the cover, if that’s what you enjoy reading 🙂 I won’t even say that the entire cover has to be red. Just part of it. So take this one and run with it! I’m eager to see what we get for this challenge.
And the third challenge this month is one of my favorites. I absolutely love second chance love stories. You know the ones . . . they were high school sweethearts, then he left or she left. Now one of them has come back and they realize that their love never died. But maybe one of them has a child? Maybe one of them has PTSD and doesn’t think they deserve the other? This one can be interpreted so many different ways, too!
As always, with these challenges, have fun.
I know last month we didn’t really specify where we wanted you guys to link up your mini challenge reviews. And they were all over the place. I will be sifting through blog post comments and Twitter / Instagram for a couple weeks just to find them all. Live and learn 😉 But, this month we’re trying to make things easier. Not wanting anyone to miss out on the special giveawayat the halfway point this year, we have decided to make a special linky just for the mini challenges. Yes, that means another blue froggy . . .
Isn’t he cute? As I said with the main challenge linky, feel free to tag us on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest . . . wherever you share your link 🙂 BUT, in order to receive credit, you must link them up here. If you linked up a review in January for the mini challenges, it would be totally helpful if you could email Crystal or I the link (firstname.lastname@example.org). Of course, if you can’t, I will be sifting through social media and the blog comments and will HOPEFULLY find all the links. SO, going forward, every link that you do for the AtoZ Reading Challenge will either go into the main monthly linkup or the mini challenge monthly linkup. Sound simple enough?
Now that we have that out of the way, it’s time for the exciting part of this month . . . the GIVEAWAY celebrating Lady Quinn’s second birthday and Mister Chu’s fourth!
Yes, there are days it feels like time is moving too fast for this mama. But, in order to savor every minute, we are celebrating all month! And that means a GIVEAWAY for you guys!
How to enter:
Here at the Ginger Mom, we are remodeling. So, we want to know what you would like to see change (or stay the same) around here. Do you like the layout? I have been trying out new titles – do you like them? Or the old standard titles? Do you like our graphics? Are they colorful enough? Too colorful? Let us know in the comments for an easy entry into the giveaway!
We are giving away a $20 Amazon gift card to one lucky winner (open Internationally). The drawing closes February 28, 2018 at 11:59PM Central Time and the winner will be notified on March 1st 🙂
And with that, I will leave you with a photo of our mini booknerds during those very first days together . . .
Happy February and as always,
