Unfortunately, it looks like the time has come to wrap up the 2015 Summer Blogger Promo Tour! It's been an amazing two months filled with laughs and good times, and we met tons of new bloggers with whom we know we've formed lifelong friendships. This is the last week of the summer and therefore the last post on the tour, which means we're going to be going back and talking about all of the fun stuff we did with everybody this summer!
Without further ado, here's a recap of the 2015 Summer Blogger Promo Tour!
We talked BookitCon with ReadWriteLove28!
Nori, the blogger behind ReadWriteLove28, was kind enough to let us in on some details about BookitCon, a special book event that she organized to help raise money and book donations for a local library that lost almost all its inventory due to flooding. It was a fun night of food and books and friends and fun, and you can see what she had to say about it here.
We "Waited on Sunday" With The Tattooed Biblio!
Lauren from The Tattooed Biblio was sweet enough to participate in our Sunday version of the popular meme "Waiting on Wednesday" - and she told us all the reasons why she was excited for Illuminae right here!
We discussed co-blogging with The Writing Duo!
Sareena and Sasha from The Writing Duo used GIFs and comedy to explain all of the situations that co-bloggers have to deal with. It was super hysterical and gave us more than a few giggles, and you can check it out here.
We showed some of BiblioSmiles' favorite featured writing!
Danielle from BiblioSmiles shared all about her literature-based website, the submission process, and all of the wonderful collaborations with various writers that she's featured. She even dished on some of her favorites here!
We displayed The Perks of Being a Bookworm's Favorite Book Fancast!
Naomi at The Perks of Being a Bookworm showcased her dream fancast for her favorite book of all time, Throne of Glass. All of the characters she picked (along with some eye-candy pics and great explanations) can be found right here.
We did The Book Scavenger Hunt of Death with The Hardcover Lover!
Erin at The Hardcover Lover accepted our challenge and participated in a bookshelf-based scavenger hunt, and even took home the gold as the winner! It was tons of fun and we ended up finding more books on our bookshelves than we realized we even had - you can see that here.
We took the YA Book Quiz with Uncreatively Zoey!
Zoey strapped on her fangirl helmet with us and took the ultimate YA book quiz, and then we compared our results to see who took home the gold. You can see for yourself by clicking here.
We saw Wonderland Novels' Favorite YA fairytale adaptations!
Alice from Wonderland Novels dished on her favorite YA fairytale stories and retellings, choosing some popular and also some lesser-known books that we definitely will have to check out. You can see them here!
All in all, this year's Summer Blogger Promo Tour was absolutely fantastic. We ran it on a much larger scale this year (with 50+ bloggers) than last year (with 8 bloggers total), and we were worried that things weren't going to work out. We had a few hiccups along the way, but the overall process ran so smoothly and everything worked out wonderfully. Us ladies here at The Book Bratz have made dozens upon dozens of new friends that we can't wait to see around the blogging community! It was a great summer of meeting new friends and coming up with creative icebreakers to get everyone situated with one another.
So, would you chalk up this Summer Blogger Promo Tour as a success? We definitely would. If you've been following the tour all summer, we encourage you to comment down below and tell us what you thought about the whole thing and if you would want to participate next year! Having so many people involved this summer was so awesome but also tons of work - but knowing that so many more people plan on getting involved next year, we'll definitely think up some ways to expand it so that everybody could enjoy it!
What a great 2015 Summer Blogger Promo Tour it's been! We'd like to thank every friend and blogger that helped out and participated along the way - you guys made this possible. You're all absolutely awesome and we hope to see you all on tour again next year!!! <3
