November Surprise!!!

Hello hello hello!

For my fellow bookstagram followers (and anyone else who wants to join in): THANK YOU!!!!

If you’re reading this, I have recently acquired 400 followers on my IG account and I am beyond proud of my followers who have been so helpful, friendly, and just simply wonderful!

To show my deep DEEP gratitude for them, I have brewed a super fun (yes, it is) challenge for y’all. This is no ordinary challenge. NO WAY. We are not about just a mere challenge over here! Below you will see that I have concocted a November Book Challenge!

NOW! For the extraordinary part. 

I’m a genius. Just simply put. (lol.jk)

There will be a GIVEAWAY on each Sunday of the month, except the last one where I am waiting until the end of November to do the last giveaway to give y’all the most opportunities to win! As you will see, the GIVEAWAYS are pointed out within the challenge.

NOW! How will you get entries into each giveaway?! 

For each bookish picture you post each day, you’ll use this uber super hashtag: #novhuntforbooks. Short and sweet I’ll say. You can only post once a day with this hashtag BUT you will earn A WHOLE entry into the GIVEAWAY.

For extra entries, (you’re gonna wanna do these!)

  • QUICKLY like the challenge post that I post.
  • EFFORTLESSLY follow me on IG (@huntforpaperbacks) for ONE extra entry (y’all should be anyways).
  • CALMLY follow me on Twitter (@hunt4paperbacks) for TWO extra entries.
  • SIMPLY repost this challenge for FIVE extra entries on IG, tagging me in the picture. 
  • EASILY follow my blog for TEN extra entries.


If you want credit (AKA entries) for all your hard effort in spreading the word, etc. Then you should FILL OUT THE FORM BELOW! Please don’t miss out on this part, I want all of you to win!!!

Okay okay, I’m sure you’re wondering what the GIVEAWAYS actually are now.

Well…I’m going to tell you what they are but not specifically. I know, I’m super evil.

The dates for the GIVEAWAYS are:

  1. November 6th – bookmark(s)
  2. November 13th – candle(s)
  3. November 20th – book(s)
  4. November 30th/December 1st – My super annoying mystery giveaway. It could be more of the above, a combination, or nothing! (JK, it won’t be nothing. That’s just silly) But I will tell you it will be epic. Or will it?? haha You love me.


Isn’t it AWESOME!!! I am so excited to see all your pictures and entries.

PLUS!!!! I plan on doing shoutouts at the end of the week as well so you won’t wanna miss that either. Right?????? 😉
