The #FridayBookShare Game was fun – Thank you for joining in.

I created the Friday Book Share Game to help search for that ideal novel/author. The first post was published in May 2016 and featured Bitch Witch by S.R. Karfelt. Since then I’ve shared various titles from horror, to young adult fantasy.

The game was open for anyone to have a go and I was overjoyed that so many fabulous bloggers took part and shared their favourite Friday Book Shares. You can find them HERE.

The idea was to answer the following questions based on a book you enjoyed reading and use the hashtag #FridayBookShare.

First line of the book.

Recruit fans by adding the book blurb.

Introduce the main character using only three words.

Delightful design (add the cover image of the book).

Audience appeal (who would enjoy reading this book?)

Your favourite line/scene.

I thoroughly enjoyed sharing some of my favourite books, and also reading what other bloggers loved to read. My TBR list has grown even bigger now!

However, all good things must come to an end and with all the blogging, writing, and life commitments I have on I’ve decided not to post any further Friday Book Share Game posts. The hashtag #FridayBookShare is quite popular and gets used by a number of authors to promote their books so I’ll still be keeping an eye on it, and if anyone wishes to continue posting their own FBS posts then I’ll happily support you with likes, RTs and comments.

I was delighted to receive a message from FBS participant, Miguel Olmedo Morell who has started a Flipboard to capture all the Friday Book Share posts – you can continue to find, share, and engage with his feature HERE.

If you’d like to see the wonderful books I’ve shared over the past eight months then follow the link HERE and browse through the posts.

All that’s left to say is THANK YOU so much for supporting this feature and for sharing, commenting, and joining in. It’s hugely appreciated.

What genre do you enjoy reading?

I enjoy reading just about anything – mainly fiction, YA, fantasy, apocalyptic drama, time travel, historical fiction, crime thrillers (especially Scandinavian Noir lately) – if it can grab me in the first few pages then I’ll stick with it. One book I just couldn’t get into was the Life of Pi, although I did enjoy the movie years later. I rarely give up on a book but it does happen sometimes.

What genre do you enjoy reading?

What genres do I not enjoy reading would be a shorter list, as it would be limited to horror and biographies, and I have enjoyed books in both those genres so… yes, I’m quite happy to pick up anything that doesn’t have me sobbing throughout.
