Ha, I challenged you to beat 70 reviews in April - and y'all posted exactly 70 again! But I shall let on to you now that I did not link up any of MY four reviews from April reading, all of which were speculative fiction. That, my friends, gives us a grand total of 74 reviews for April - a NEW record! Congrats all - and let's work for more next month. I know that a number of us have been suffering in April from slower reading months for various reasons (feel free to tell all in the comments - mine was a combination of outside influences and suffering from the tyranny of choice i.e. out of over 2,000 books, which should I possibly choose next?!)
The prize pack for April was a brand new copy of Black Halo by Sam Sykes, and the lucky winner of this novel (not even out yet in the UK!) is:
Steve, please contact me with your postal address at magemanda AT gmail DOT com - and I hope you enjoy the book! I look forward to seeing your review at a later date.
Now, last month I challenged for more reviews from you to beat our record. That goes as a given for May as well. But I ALSO challenge you to cruise around the linked reviews for May and drop some comment love on your fellow participants *smiles*
Also, I want to know in the comments how many people have completed the 12 book challenge already? No shame for those who haven't, but I have already read 12 speculative fiction novels in 2011 and I wondered who else had also achieved. Share and we can all say a big WELL DONE! And then we can push to see exactly how many speculative fiction novels we can read in the rest of 2011.
