      Hi Carrie! Yes, you can write your reviews under each book on your Goodreads account. To sign up, on the sign up post put the link to your Goodreads Profile. So when you sign on to Goodreads, you would click your image to view your profile and that link in the address bar would be what you put in the Sign Up linky.

      If you create a shelf called “Soul Screamers Reading Challenge” on Goodreads, you can review each book and we can check your profile links to that shelf each month as you add them.

    I read the Rachel Vincent’s Soul Screamers series a while back. I enjoyed them very much. I am looking forward to reading them again. Some book series are worth reading them twice!

    Just wondering cuz everytime i come back to this page i get a little more confused

    i have already read My Soul to Lose and am currently reading My Soul to Take

    last week when i finished My Soul to Lose i got back onthis page and there was a space to put your link for the review, that each person wrote so i put my link to My Soul to Lose on it

    But now im not sure where to put my link for when i finish My Soul to Take?
    or would it be easier if i create a shelf called Soul Screamers Reading Challenge?

    Also wondering whether cuz im in the challenge should i also do one of those participation posts? I dont know whether it would matter anyway cuz i dont have any friends on my goodreads account but i was just wondering if it was a thing that you should do if you are participating?

      Hi Kiara,

      No, the links on this page are ONLY for participation posts. If you’ve posted that link here it won’t count. In the sidebar on the right there is a textbox that says “All things SSRC” and your links for any reviews between January 15 and February 14 should be under the post with the link title MONTH ONE REVIEWS.

      If you haven’t signed up, that should be under SIGN UP.

      You can put two links in the MONTH ONE linky, but you have to link to the actual review, not just your Goodreads profile so it won’t be seen as a duplicate.

      You can create the shelf to prove you’ve read certain books, but for the giveaways you have to have a link in the linky box beneath each month’s post to be considered for those giveaways. It’s the entry number in the linky that will be the number used for Random.

      If you want to do a participation post, you could do that on your Goodreads. If you take a look at what the linky for Poppy @ Goodreads did, that would work. You create a status update on your Goodreads to write a brief paragraph stating you are participating and any thoughts/ideas you want about the challenge. Then you would link to that status update in the above linky.

      But any/all reviews should be on the monthly posts each month. There will be a post on February 15th in which you will link any reviews between then and March 14. I’ll leave that link in the sidebar next month.

      I hope this helps!

    so….basically we post a review for each book? do you have to do one each month? Is that what you mean? Because I am so confused…

      Every month on the 15th I create a post where you can put a link to any reviews you’ve written during that month.

      You can read as many or as few of the books as you’d like and can read them at any time during the challenge. But to get extra entries into the end of challenge giveaways you will must post your reviews for each book during the scheduled month. And also to get entries into each monthly giveaway.

      So this month’s challenge is to read My Soul to Take. If you post a review for this book during the month -January 15 to February 14 – and add your link to that month’s challenge post you get an entry into this month’s giveaway.

      I hope this helps. Let me know if you’d like me to email you!

      Hi Kelly,

      There are links in the sidebar. First you would sign up in the “sign up” post. Just leave your details in the Linky list.

      Then you would leave any links to posts you write/reviews you create in the link for the month of the challenge that you write them. So, if you write all your reviews and post them this month (Between March 15 and April 14) you would post them individually in the Linky list for the MONTH THREE date.

      If you only post the earlier reviews and this month’s challenge book in that list and wait to review the later books, you can post those later reviews in the next couple of months of the challenge (April 15-May 14 and May 15-June 14.)

      Let me know if you have any other questions!

    I think I signed up for this at the beginning, I’ve had a lot going on lately and have lost track of everything. Is it too late to post links? Would I need to sign up again cause I haven’t done anything as of yet?
