Book Madness is BACK! #BookMadness17

I loved hosting Book Madness so much in 2016 that I decided to make it bigger and better than ever in 2017 bringing in BookTubers, Bookstagramers, and Book Bloggers in on the fun! I’m SO close to having 64 bloggers signed up to participate and that honestly blows my mind. This community is epic awesome and I’m so glad to be a part of it.

In a nutshell, Book Madness 2017 is a chance for participating bloggers to gush about their favorite characters. Every few days there will be a new round of votes throughout the month of March to narrow all 64 of those characters down to one ultimate champion. Just like last year there will be prizes for viewers/voters and the bloggers participating! They will range from bookish trinkets, swag from 2017 debut authors (and possibly some ARCs!), Book Depository books for our international friends, and an Amazon card for our winning blogger!
