The All Male Review Challenge Giveaway Hop Sign Up!

I just want to begin this post by saying I stole all of the below information directly from Missie at The Unread Reader as she is the genius mastermind behind this entire event. We'll posting information about the event itself, including a full schedule, at the end of June.

With the start of The All Male Review Challenge just around the corner, we thought we'd kick things off with a GIVEAWAY HOP because boys in books are better, especially when they're free! As some of you may remember, the goal of The All Male Review Challenge is to read as many Young Adult books written by male authors or featuring male protagonists. Challenge participants will have a month to read as many books meeting the criteria as possible. This year, the challenge will be held during the month of July. To get the party started, we will be hosting a The All Male Review Challenge GIVEAWAY HOP, which will run from July 1st through 7th, and we'd love for you would join us!!!

Hop Rules
  • The book(s) you choose to giveaway must be YOUNG ADULT and either be written by a male author or feature a male protagonist as the main character.
  • Stories with alternating POVs are acceptable as long as one of the main characters is male.
  • You will be responsible for obtaining the prize you are offering for the giveaway and for the shipping charges.
  • You may provide a list of books for the winner to choose from, but no gift cards.
  • Your giveaway post must include the hop image & linky widget code or links to the hosts' sites.
  • Please keep the mandatory entries simple and to a minimum (no more than 4). The purpose of a giveaway hop is to let contestants enter the giveaway then move on to the next site.
  • Your giveaway post must be live by 12:01am EST on JULY 1st.
  • You will not have to be a participant of The All Male Review Challenge to host a giveaway for the hop or to enter a giveaway offered in the hop.
  • The hop will run from July 1st-7th. At the close of the hop, you will have a week to contact the winner and make arrangements to distribute the prize.
