2016 Horror Reading Challenge Sign Up

 

 

Welcome to the Horror Reading Challenge. I loved this challenge and I’m excited that Stormi @ Books, Movies, Reviews, Oh My! Is co-hosting this year with Tracy @ Cornerfolds .  It’s been changed a little bit and looks like it’s going to be another fun year!

Read on to check out the changes and sign up!

This year you will find a few changes to the challenge:

First of all are the challenge badges, which you will win by completing the highest number of books for that level. For example, to receive the Running Scared badge, you will have to read and review 5 books. These will be emailed to you at the conclusion of the challenge!

Another change is how reviews will be linked up. This year, instead of one linkup, we will be making a monthly post for your reviews! This way everyone will get a chance to check out what you’ve been up to!

Finally, giveaways will be handled a little differently this year. Halfway through the year, we will be hosting a giveaway of physical copies of some of our favorite horror books. Unfortunately, this giveaway will be for US participants only. At the end of the year, however, the badge you earn will also determine which giveaway you will be entered to win (see below)! The more books you read, the better prize you’ll be entered for!

 

Challenge Guidelines
  • This challenge will run from January 1, 2016 – December 31, 2016.
  • You can join at anytime before October 15, 2016.
  • Books must be read and reviewed in 2016.
  • Audiobooks, re-reads, short stories, and crossovers are fine.
  • You don’t have to be a book blogger to participate! You can track your progress on Goodreads, Shelfari, Booklikes, etc.
  • Sign up on the designated Linky below with your post, shelf, etc. and leave a comment letting us know what your personal goal is.
  • Link up your reviews each month via the provided linky!

Challenge Levels

Read and review 1-5 horror books to receive the Running Scared badge and receive an entry into a giveaway to win a $5 gift card!

Read and review 6-10 horror books to receive the Brave Reader badge and receive an entry into a giveaway to win a $10 gift card!

 

Read and review 11-15 horror books to receive the Fearless badge and receive an entry into a giveaway to win a $15 gift card!

Read and review 16+ horror books to receive the Horror Hound badge and receive an entry into a giveaway to win a $20 gift card!
.
I chose Brave Reader last year and blew that one out of the water with 35 books read and reviewed with plenty more I could have added. So this year I’m straight for Horror Hound!
