Do you all remember the book carnivals, I believe bookroomreviews always hosts every few months or so (I have no idea how long is actually between the two)? Anyway, they are a lot of fun and I love seeing new blogs and entering contests for books or book-related items.
However, I did notice that not a ton of YA blogs post their links during the carnival and you know we all love our contests, bloggers and authors alike. So I was thinking...how about having a Book Carnival for YA books and items only. You can have an adult blog, you can have a pop culture blog, it doesn't matter...but the contest has to be a YA-level book or something that anyone can enjoy like a bookstore gift card or something. Make sense?
I'll post a Mr. Linky and everyone can leave links to their contests during a one-week period and people can spend that time entering and finding new sites and authors can promote their friends and themselves by doing contests as well. I don't know, I think it would be fun, but it's up to everyone else. I can't do it on my own, so what do you think? And when do you think it should be?
Do people think we should do this in June or something or wait unti later in the summer? I don't know, but spread the word and let me know if you plan on doing something for the party. I'd love for more sites/authors to know about this so again...tell EVERYONE! And for now, leave your thoughts/questions/commments/suggestions/whatever!
