Sci-fi and Fantasy Friday {ARCs and $5 Giftcards Weekly!}

Sci-fi And Fantasy Fridays

Link-up Your Sci-fi and Fantasy Reviews and Giveaways!

I’m a huge sci-fi and fantasy fan, to the point that that is really all I read anymore. Therefore, I decided to start a weekly feature where I get all of you to gather the sf/f reviews and giveaways you’ve published and found so that we can all discover new books, blogs, and giveaways in our favorite genres!

I’m writing this post super early since I’ll be traveling for Turkey Day ;-). Therefore, congrats to whoever won and enjoy the books :D. Also, since it is obviously a bit of a slow week for those of us in the states, I don’t have anything new to add to the pile! The winner will still be able to choose two ARCs if they are in the US though, just don’t get trampled in shopping lines! (I’m driving all around Minnesota for the record and will not be in any shopping lines *hides*).

Every week I’ll pick a random link and the email address that submitted that link will get $5 at Amazon or two ARCs from my SFFF-Books shelf!

Here are the more stringent rules concerning links for the giveaway:

  1. Links will only be eligible if they are no more than a week old as of the Friday they are entered for and the linky will close on Sunday each week. This means that it is better for you to save links and put them all in each Friday than put links in to last week’s post during the week. This also means that everyone is more likely to see all the links since they’ll mostly be up on Friday.
  2. The person submitting the link doesn’t have to be the person who wrote the post (and I in fact encourage you to submit other people’s links, spread the love!). If someone has already submitted your review for the week, you will need to go look for another post to add to qualify for the giveaway.
  3. Duplicate links aren’t allowed. (The linky won’t let you enter them, so have no fear.)
  4. An individual is welcome to enter as many unique and relevant links as they want. This increases your chances of winning and gives us all more awesome blog posts to discover.
  5. Links have to be sci-fi/fantasy book reviews and giveaways or general book or book blogging discussions. No reviews/giveaways for other genres will count.
  6. I’ll email the winner on Monday and they will have 48 hours to respond. Hopefully this means that I’ll be able to announce the winner of the past week each Friday.
  7. I have a lot of ARCs and finished review copies laying around, so I’d be willing to give US winners the option of choosing a book from my pile that I will ship them instead of the giftcard (since the shipping in the US is equivalent). This could include unpublished ARCs when I have them available, it just depends on the week. The list of books that the winner can choose from is my SFFF-Books shelf.
  • SF – Science Fiction
  • F – Fantasy
  • UF – Urban Fantasy
  • PNR – Paranormal Romance
  • DYS – Dystopian
  • YA – Young Adult
  • A – Adult
  • MG – Middle-grade

  1. So glad the links don’t vanish after the linky closes! My internet people apparently ALL went away for Thanksgiving. My internet has been down since Wednesday morning & no expectations to get it back before Monday now.

    Typing on my phone is a pain, so is reading. So I’ll have to check out the discussions & reviews later. Glad I’d scheduled posts ahead this week. Some of these links look really interesting, making me debate reading now!

    • Definitely not, they are fun to go through months later when you’re looking for reviews or something ;-) I hope you have your internet back now!
