2014 Reading Challenge: Indie Fever!

Welcome to a 2014 Reading Challenge: Indie Fever!

Ever since I have discovered this book review & blogging world, I have also discovered the "Indie-Authors". To be frank, quite a big percentage of my 2012 favourites were from Indie Authors. So I have come up with this challenge with the hope of promoting Indie Authors and their works.

Points to Know:
1.  Read and Review as many Indie (Self Published) Books as possible during this year. 
2. You do not have to be a blogger to participate. However, you have to post a review on some site in order to participate. It can be on Goodreads and/or Amazon and/or Barnes & Noble and/or Smashwords.
3. If you are a blogger link up your permalink to the review posts. If you aren't a blogger, then link up the permalink to your reviews from whichever site you have chosen to post the review on.
4. The books can overlap with other reading challenges.  
5. Books read may be any form (audio, print, e-book).
6. Post your links to your reviews each month to share with other participants.
7. The challenge runs from January 1, 2014 to December 31, 2014. Its never too late to Join In!

How To Sign-Up and Join In:

1. Choose a challenge level listed below.
2. Create a post on your blog, in a group, or on a forum (where possible) to let others see what you’re aiming for (a predefined list of Authors/Books is optional).
3. Grab the badge and place it in your sign up post. Then link back to b00k r3vi3ws.
4. Grab the direct URL to your sign up post, not your blog, click the Linky List and enter your link.
5. Once you review a book it would be great for you to share them by submitting them on the Review List.
7. When you’re done it’s completion post time and you can share these on the completion/wrap-up List.

  1. Super thrilled to see some more reviewers on the board! I thought I was doing something wrong for a minute! Of course, your wonderful in depth reviews are putting my short paragraphs to shame! What can I say, I'm a reader and not a reviewer unfortunately - I'm always too eager to get onto the next book!

  2. Soooo, just an FYI...I'm doing a self-challenge called Bound by Blood week, where I'm reading all five books called Bound by Blood that I have on my TBR shelf. (http://sadieforsythe.com/wp/?p=7905) I mention this in case you notice five so titled reviews in a row. :-)
