Yes, it’s back! The Book to Movie Challenge is being rebooted in 2016 with more discussions, more monthly themes and more fun because let’s face it — the format last year probably bored all of you to tears! In addition, I’ll be giving away a few prizes throughout the year because bling is great motivation to participate.
♦ You can join at any time.
♦ Neither the book nor the movie has to be new in 2016.
♦ TV shows and mini-series count.
♦ Comic book and graphic novel adaptations count.
♦ Active participation in the challenge is required to qualify for prizes.
♦ Participation includes (but is not mandatory):
◊ Linking to a book to movie review on your blog
◊ Commenting on Book to Movie posts and participating in discussions
◊ Reading and commenting on the reviews of your fellow challenge participants
◊ Giving some of the mini-challenges a go
◊ Talking about the challenge on social media
♦ Prize winners will be randomly selected.
To sign-up for the challenge, post an introduction on your blog that names three (3) book adaptations in 2016 you’re excited about and tell us:
♦ Have you read the book and did you love/loathe it?
♦ Why are you excited about the adaptation?
♦ What do you think of the casting?
Here are some of the adaptations I’m excited for just to give you an idea of what’s coming up.
Link your sign-up post by December 31st at 12 noon EST to qualify for a prize. One (1) blogger will win their choice of book of up to $20 in value from the Book Depository.
Announce your sign-up on social media by using the hashtag #Book2Movie2016.
Thanks for joining and I can’t wait to read your sign-up posts!
