Happy Anniversary + Giveaway Bonanza




Boy Meets Boy Reviews is three years old!!!! Happy Anniversary!

Bring on the CAKE!


Mmm...yummy!

You know what that means?

Bring on the trikes, ABC's and finger paints, because we're big boys and girls! *claps excitedly*

A bunch of friends who met through their shared love of reading, shared their love with you and we're still going strong!

We're celebrating all month long! And we asked our favorite authors and publishers to join along and get in on the horn action!

And join they did!

A super serious unicorn meeting in progress!

We're of a mind that if it's not broke, don't fix it! Meaning we're hosting our famous 'Giveaway-a-Day'! We can see the excited gleam in your eyes!

Here's a teaser of some of the authors celebrating with us for the month: SO, EE, RR, JI, JC, MC, KA, TS, CS, AM, JR...

Oh you wanted full names? C'mon, you know you have to stick around to find out!

As for publishers: Dreamspinner Press, Less Than Three Press, Riptide Publishing and NineStar Press (it's their anniversary month too) are celebrating in the unicorn jamboree.

With all these people dancing and cavorting, you know who is missing right? YOU!

This year we want to play with you!

We have daily unicorn trivia for those who are interested for DSP credits! See the Trivia Rules (scroll below for more details) - Twitter is mandatory to be eligible for a prize.

Unicorn Trivia Game a.k.a. Another Way to Win Free Stuff!

This year we’re going to have daily trivia questions. They will be worth a specified point value and the person who has the most points per week will win DSP credits!

Rules:

1. The questions will be on LGBT books. We usually have 3 posts a day and the question could be posted on any one of those posts. The questions will ALWAYS need to have the author in the answer, but sometimes we’ll be looking for the title of the book, series name or specific character names as well.

2. The objective is to answer the question correctly first to collect the points. Point values will be noted on the question.

3. Once you know the answer, you’ll need to tag @BMBReviews on Twitter as well as tag (or type if you can’t find them) the author(s) names.

4. Points will be cumulative throughout the week and winners for the week will be announced on Sundays e.g. 6th, 13th, 20th & 27th. The email address you give must match your DSP account to receive the credits.

5. In the event of a tie, there will be a tiebreaker question asked on the following Monday and it will be tagged as such so as not to be confused with the question of the day.

Good luck!



Don't worry Facebook users, we didn't forget you. You know we're on Facebook right? Every Saturday, we're giving away an ebook to FB users too! Answer easy questions on FB, like our page, be eligible for a DSP eBook!

Helped yourself to the party favors? Want something right now? You know we have something up our sleeves!

    1. Oh, and here's my unicorn name:

      Windflower is silly and lovable. She is has a mane as silky as a cat's tail, and she brings the snow in the winter.

  6. Happy 3rd guys! And not even a wrinkle - good job :)
    My unicorn name is Dandelion Pied Reins, which, perfect.
    Apparently, Dandelion is a little bit crazy (it's like you've met me)(a lot). He is gaily piebald like a pony, and he casts mischievous spells.
    Thanks for introducing me to brand new (to me) authors as well as books and reviews. Looking forward to many, many more of your birthdays!! (and all the days between)

  16. Happy Birthday!!! Just discovered this blog/review site; look forward to following you. Especially love the hedgehog pic. My SO used to have a hedgehog named Petey. Want to get him a holiday surprise of another one and name it Re-Petey. Hoping he doesn't think I'm too crazy.....

    1. Thank you for the birthday wishes, Cindra! Welcome to the Unicorn Tomfoolery!

      That hedgehog HAD to be used for the unicorn celebration this year. HAD to! I think Re-Petey is 100% awesome and I support this campaign! (Hope it all works out)

  21. Happy anniversary. I can't remember if there's been a particular author that I found through BMBR, but what I definitely found was a group of like-minded people who shared a love of books. Thanks for all the great reviews and honestly just some of the really fun posts to read with unicorn things. :)

  22. Happy Birthday! I don't think any author has been brought to my attention. I tend to read the new book reviews of authors I already like instead.

"Scientifically" (lol!) I am Poppy Velvet Coat. Poppy is quick-witted and bright as a spark. She is has a nose as soft as kitten, and she climbs the mountains of the world.
