Katrina over at Bookish Things and More and I are so freaking excited to bring you the 2016 Steampunk Reading Challenge. It came on as a spur of the moment idea. I’m a huge lover of steampunk, and Steph wants to read more in that genre.
There will be monthly giveaways, read alongs, and just fun in general. All you have to do is create a sign up post, or just let us know that you are participating, and fill out the linky below!
1. This challenge will run from January 1st, 2016 to December 31st, 2016. Signups will be open until December 1, 2016
2. Anyone can enter, as long as you are posting your reviews/book talks somewhere that you can link to them. Whether that is on your blog, Goodreads, Instagram, Amazon, etc.
3. Rereads are allowed as long as you have a review/book talk to go along with that for the 2016 year
4. Wrap Ups will be held on both blogs (with the same linky) on the last Friday of every month. The linky for the wrap ups will be open for 2 weeks and then there will be a winner chosen within that linky for the giveaway prize for that month.
5. We will also be hosting some read alongs throughout the year. These will occur every other month and a discussion post will go up the Monday before the Wrap Up of that month. (see the schedule below)
6. Use #2016SteampunkChallenge on social media to show off your updates for the challenge and of course to make more friends!
We made a Goodreads Group for you all to join and do discussions and keep track of the books you read for this challenge. Here it is if you are interested! Steampunk Reading Challenge Goodreads Group

This is a bonus, extra fun thing we are bringing to the table. You in no way HAVE to join in on this if you participate in the Challenge, but it is an option if you WANT to! This year, we will be reading the Parasol Protectorate series by Gail Carriger for the Read Along. If you want to read that series (or reread it!) you are more than welcome to join us in that adventure! 🙂
If you do decide to participate in the Read Alongs, you can add your comments, posts, etc. that go with the Read Alongs in the linky for the Wrap Up and gain EXTRA entries for the giveaways!
