One of the best things about the bookish community is how loving and friendly it is and I think the fact that events that contribute to this kind of atmosphere exist further proves that point. This is why I’ve joined Love-a-Thon again and again since 2014.
This 2016, however, I’m brimming with excitement to announce that I’m one of the co-hosts for the event, along with Alexa of Alexa Loves Books, Cee of The Novel Hermit & Mel of The Daily Prophecy!
It’s been such a blast brainstorming with these fabulous ladies so I hope you’re ready for all the awesome we’ve planned for you. We’re so thrilled to challenge you this 2016 to be creative, to be a positive force and most importantly, to share the love (on your blog, Twitter, Instagram or Youtube) in this amazing community we have!
The Love-a-Thon is an event dedicated to spreading positivity and love. It’s time dedicated to visiting other bloggers/Instagrammers/BookTubers, leaving a comment or two, making new friends and fostering positivity among the members of our amazing community. As in the previous years, the event will include mini challenges, Twitter chats and giveaways galore! The full schedule will be sent to you when you’ve signed up, so you can start preparing your posts.
We’re really looking forward to seeing everyone participate in sharing love, encouragement and inspiration all over the bookish communities on the blogosphere, Instagram and YouTube! And, of course, we hope everyone will have fun. If you’re interested in participating, please fill in the sign-up form below. Once that’s done, you can consider yourself an official #LoveAThon participant!
Who can participate in the Love-a-Thon? All book bloggers, Bookstagrammers, BookTubers, authors and publishers are welcome to jump in! We have challenges spanning three different platforms (blogs, YouTube & Instagram), and you can participate as much or as little as you’d like. (Everyone is invited to join in on the Twitter chats though!)
When is the Love-a-Thon happening? We’re going to be maintaining the two day schedule, with the event taking place from February 20, 12:00AM EST to February 22, 12:00AM EST.
