Introducing the All Male Review Challenge!

Monday, April 25, 2011


Dear Readers,

Ever feel like you don't read enough YA by male authors or with male protagonists? Then we have the reading challenge for you!

Introducing the All Male Revue Review Challenge!

This reading and reviewing challenge, hosted by Missie at The Unread Reader and myself, will run the entire month of May.

Beginning on May 1st, any book you read and review by a male author or containing a male protagonist is eligible to be entered into our Mr. Linky collection. At the end of the month, Missie and I will chose a winner for our Mega Hot Prize Pack of books!

Throughout the month of May, we will also have spotlight reviews, special guest posts, author interviews, and mini giveaways!

We are still pulling together prize packs and confirming our guest authors, but so far we have features and giveaways planned with authors Charles Benoit, Jon Skovron, R.A. Nelson, Antony John, Joshua C. Cohen, James Kennedy and Hannah Moskowitz!

Are you excited? I know I am! More details are coming soon, but we wanted to prepare you for the fun and also ask for your help.

Readers/Reviewers: To motivate people to take part in the challenge, we are trying to make our Mega Hot Prize Pack as epic as possible. If you'd like to contribute in any way, we'd certainly appreciate it. Books by your favorite male author or containing your favorite male protag, bookmarks, swag, your life sized cut out of Edward Cullen, we'll take it!

Authors: We want to hear from you too! Are you a male author who writes YA? Or do you write a male protag who could put a RL Alpha male to shame? Would you like to be featured, interviewed, or spotlighted? Please contact us!

Bloggers: Are you a male blogger who feels lost in a sea of estrogen? Contact me for information on how you can be interviewed and featured on the blog!

We are hoping to make this a fun challenge for anyone and everyone to participate in. If you got any ideas that you think would add motivation or flare to this challenge, please e-mail us: missie at theunreadreader.com or loganeturnerblog at gmail dot com.

What a great event you two have scheduled!

Gina @ My Precious said...

Oh how cool is this, I'm reading The Replacement right now, if I finish it in May can it still count or not, because I started reading it in April. Let me know.

Do you guys have any book lists complied for ideas?

Logan E. Turner said...

@Missie - Me too!

@DebraZ - Thanks! We think so. :P

@Gina - Yes, it will count as long as you review it in May. We don't have a list right now, but that's a great idea so I'll work on getting one together. Thanks!

This is a great idea. I'm not a male but my middle grade novel has a male protagonist. I love writing from a different gender's POV.

Gina @ My Precious said...

@ Missie - THANKS!!!

Eliza Faith said...

Love this! My current ms has a male protagonist. It's fun to get into a guy's head.

Jacinda (The Reading Housewives) said...

I made a list and I have a post scheduled for next week to share my list of to reads with everyone! Exciting! :)

Scoot said...

I think this sounds like a great idea. I just finished a book that fits this criteria, looks like I need to review it in may! :)

Pk Hrezo said...

What a great idea! I'm working on a MG fantasy with a male MC. It's been so much fun!

Rubita said...

I'm absolutely the worst about this. I mostly read female authors, who mostly write from the female perspective. HOWEVER, I recently listened to Whit Cat by Holly Black and it was pretty awesome. I've still got Red Glove on my TBR list, so I may have to participate. Hm.

Carrie said...

Awesome idea, Logan!

And then I looked at my stack of library and review books and thought:

I suuuuuuucccckkkk. These are all GIRLS!! But I'll try to squeeze in a boy here and there :P
