September Spectacular Reading Challenge + Giveaway!

Hey Guys, So I have been trying to think of something really fun to do for September, A giveaway, or a reading challenge. Well needless to say I couldn't decide which to do. So I am doing both, and so The September Spectacular is born!!! YAY! I know its a little early but I wanted you guys to have a chance to pick your books and spread the word. What is the September Spectacular you may ask, well let me tell you.
  • It will start September 1st and go on through September 30th.
  • There will be a 5 book reading challenge, ( one book a week) that you will have to read. Which books? Any 5 you want. Its your choice... Easy huh. At the end of that week you will post your review on your blog and add your link to the Mr. Linky at the bottom. ( If you don't have a blog you can either post a comment, letting everyone know what you think about the book or sent me an email with your review) * Sep first starts on a Wednesday so you can start your first book on Sunday the 29th if you want.
  • At the end of each week a giveaway will be posted. That's 5 giveaways!! The only thing you have to do to enter is, link your review on that weeks Mr. Linky. Plus get an extra entry if you add the September Spectacular button to your post or sidebar! ( Open Internationally)

My 5 books are:

So there you have it. I challenge you!! Happy reading!

* Just a quick note: Mr. Linky is not working for me at the moment so if you want to sign up just leave a post with your URL and make sure to link your review to the Mr . linky on the first giveaway post...That one seems to be working!

Awesome contest Stephanie!!! I left a link to where I will be posting my reviews but the site isn't updated a lot. Really it's a failed book site but it's the only place I can post my reviews, is that okay???

What a cool idea, I'm in! Heh, wish I'd read about this yesterday (Aug 31), I wouldn't have posted my review, would have saved it for September! ;)

This is such a good challenge cos I never get around to writing reviews of all the books I read, so hopefully this'll help me with that! Cheers!

Well, I'd like to be in this contest too. I thought I'd already left a comment but I don't see it. I've had your button up that shows the challenge for at least a week if not longer. So how do we post if Mr. Linky doesn't work?

Or you have no electricity due to a hurricane????

oh crap. Even though I did a post about this on Aug 24, I guess I forgot to sign up. Or maybe Mr. Linky was still working when I signed up. Either way, I'd better do this just in case. My start post.
