Faebruary Announcement



Forget February, it's Faebruary! I am dedicating the month of February to the fae, and I am inviting you to join me in this (and my very first!) readathon. The aim of Faebruary is very simple, read fae books. Any genre, adult, Young Adult, urban fantasy, fantasy, trilogy, series - it all counts. 

There's also going to be a series of challenges where you can earn points, and at the end of the month you add up your points and see whether you are Light Fae, Dark Fae, or a Seelie Queen (or King!). How much you take part in Faebruary is up to you, there are no iron clad rules (which is good, because, you know...most fae can't touch iron). The readathon has been designed to be casual and easy to follow, so whether you want to take part for just one book, one week, two weeks, or casually pick up fae books amongst your existing TBR - join us! (And if you're wondering about the Darkfever readalong, check out the video!)

The challenges are pretty simple, and you get a point each time. 

1 - Read a book with Fae (the only essential challenge!)
2 - Re-read a fae book you've read before
3 - Buddy read a fae book
4 - Complete the first book in a fae trilogy or series
5 - Join the Goodreads group - https://www.goodreads.com/group/show/453492-faebruary
6 - Post a photo, (or video, if you are a Booktuber!) on any social media platform such as Twitter, Facebook, Instagram or YouTube using #faebruary 
7 - Read for 30 minutes a day
8 - Read a fae book by an author you've never read before 
9 - Post a review, either on Goodreads, Amazon, Youtube, a Blog. Reviews help authors!

You get a point for each challenge, every time. So, if you read the first book in a series as a buddy read, by a new author you've never read - three points. If you read a book by a new author, only the first book counts for a point. Once you read the sequel, they're not new to you anymore. If you've already started a book before the readathon - no worries. I sprung this on you pretty last minute, so you're free to count it. On February 1st I'll reveal how many points you need to become Light Fae, Dark Fae, or a Faerie Queen/King. 

If you're taking part and you have a blog post, YouTube video, tweet, of your TBR, please feel free to leave a link in the comments so we can all support each other.
