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!

Hello everyone and happy Fourth to those in the States! Congrats to last week’s winner Mullane :D. She snagged The Scroll of Years from the pile, I’m sensing a theme in books chosen lately ;-). I’ve been reading eBooks this week for the most part so no new shinies got added to the list, but here are some exciting ones that are still available:

The Falconer by Elizabeth May The Immortal Crown

Every week I’ll pick a random link and the email address that submitted that link will get $5 at Amazon or an ARC 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. I love this idea! I can’t wait until next week to be able to enter. I’m new at blogging and just started doing reviews, so it’s nice to see something like this!

    • You can actually already enter if you want to find another blog with sci-fi or fantasy reviews to link up ;-)

      • That would be awesome! Since I’m new to the blogger community, I would love to get a chance to get linked up with others! Especially those that like the same thing I do!

  4. I just wanted to let you know that I think this is such a brilliant idea!
    I jus recently discovered that you were doing this each Friday and I love hopping around to all the interesting posts and discovering new blogs :-)
    Thanks for spreading the love!

    • Thank you so much! It is really great to hear since that was exactly my goal when starting the feature and I honestly didn’t know if it would work at times, haha.
