Flights of Fantasy Reading Challenge 2016 banner Alexa Loves Books Hello Chelly
I'm so, so happy with the Flights of Fantasy Reading Challenge turnout this year! From fantasy newbies falling in love with the genre, to hardcore fantasy fans revisiting old favorites, it has been one spectacular year. I've gone above and beyond my initial goal of 30 books, so it looks like I've have to raise the bar next year.
Speaking of next year, Rachel of Hello, Chelly & I will be hosting the Flights of Fantasy Reading Challenge again in 2016! We're excited to be reading more fantasies (and there are a ton coming out next year, mind you), and we hope you'll be joining us as well. We've got some fun plans in store throughout the coming year, and can't wait to let you in on them. We hope all fantasy readers - whether you're a newbie or a veteran - will be joining us again, and we promise that, as with last year, things will be real simple.

  • The challenge will run from January 1-December 31, 2016.
  • We're welcoming all readers to join us for this challenge! In order to sign up, readers just need to link to their blogs or their Goodreads profile or their Twitter / YouTube / Instagram account in the Linky below. That way, we can see where you'll be sharing your thoughts on all your fantasy reads (and we can come and visit you)!
  • You can read as many fantasy novels as you'd like to. No levels for this challenge!
  • There will be two giveaways, one at 6 months and one at the end of the year. More details will be provided closer to those dates.
  • Help us spread the word! Feel free to tweet about the challenge using our official hashtag#flightsoffantasy, grab the button to link to the challenge in your blog sidebar, share the image on Pinterest / Instagram or even write your own post about it. We love talking with fellow fantasy fans and want to reach as many of them as possible!
