As most of you know, I have been co-hosting the Reading Road-Trip with Hafsah from IceyBooks for the whole month of July. Although the last stop has been visited, there are still a few giveaways that have yet to close, so make sure to get all of your late entries in (see schedule).
Although not every stop was filled, I still think the hop was a success. Thank you so much to everyone who hosted, we couldn't have done it without you! I hope everyone who followed along on the trip with us enjoyed it, and congratulations to the winners. If you didn't win this time, hey, there is always next year. Did I just announce that the Reading Road-Trip will coming back around in 2013? I think I did...
In order to make next year a success, we would really appreciate if everyone who participated, either by hosting or road-tripping with us, would please fill out the short feedback form. We don't have any prize to offer other than making next year many times more amazing. This was the first year of the Reading Road-Trip, so there were a few kinks that we know we need to fix for next year - but we need your suggestions as well.
I also created a google doc, for anyone to contribute to, that lists YA novels by the state they take place in. Part of the issue with this hop was finding books to giveaway, so we aim to fix that for next year's hosts. Even if you don't plan on participating in the hop, the list will be a fun place to find a book from your state, or maybe even a state you plan on visiting soon. Either way, we'd love if you'd help contribute to the list. You can include YA books from any year. We will be leaving the list up as long as google docs exist, so feel free to add titles as you read them.
