The August Over in a Flash challenge is very special to me, because I was invited to be the one that set the boundaries. Since August doesn’t have any “big” holidays, I had some fun with this challenge. I invite you to join me.
Rules: Read 2 books with the following items found on their covers; choose 2 of the 3 options below. Be sure to post your book covers, dates read, and star ratings. If you want, you can do this at the end of the month after you reviewed your covers. Feel free to do all three if you want.
HOLIDAY: Back to School (All Month) – Read a book that stars a school age (college, high school) hero/heroine, Hawaii Becomes a State (August 21, 1959) – Read something that takes place in Hawaii (for help with this state, go here or here) or another Tropical/Beach location. Indy Speedway hosts it’s first race (August 19, 1909) – Read a Book that features a Auto Racer, Fast cars, or people that like to turn in circles over and over. The A-Bomb is Dropped on Hiroshima (August 6, 1948) – Read a Book that takes place during a War or features a Military Hero/Heroine, or does NOT have a HEA.
ITEM: Peridot (August Birthstone), Onyx (August Secondary Birthstone), Lion or Virgin (Astrological Signs), Gladiolus or Poppy (Birth Flower), eight, watermelon, chocolate, marshmallow, cake, candles, pens/pencils, notebooks, jewelry, lighthouse, volcano, waffle, airplane. Words: birthday, school, class, gold, dream.
My books for this challenge (I always choose one for each category):
I have a number of paperbacks, most of which are signed, to giveaway. Over the between now (11 Mar 2017) and 31 Mar 2017, every comment on the blog (this post and all other new posts), will be entered to win 1 of these paperbacks. There are also some misc swag items, so there will be a few packs of these to give away as well.
Thank you so much for your support over the last 4 years. Prism will be closing its doors on 1 April 2017. All content will remain available, but no new content will appear after 31 Mar 2017. As such all request forms have been turned off. Again Thank you,
