2021 AtoZ Challenge Link-Up

Good morning, AtoZ-ers!

It’s May already. So you’re probably wondering what I’m doing creating an Official AtoZ Challenge Link-Up. Am I right?

This year, we opened up the AtoZ Challenge to our Facebook group. And possibly messed up a setting in the new InLinkz (something about backlinks). As a result, we’ve had more problems with participants linking up to the challenge than all the previous years combined.

So, Megan has a solution!

This little page is the Official Link-Up place for any books you read in the 2021 AtoZ Reading Challenge. The. Only. Place.

Now, because people usually don’t all follow the rules, we will be duplicating this page on our Facebook page (see what we did there? We gave you the link. Just click it and you’re good!). We will also be transferring all links that have previously been submitted to InLinkz (so don’t worry about grabbing your previous links).

How Do I Link Up???


Step 1: Read your book.

Step 2: Review your book on any of the following: your blog, Goodreads, any retail site (Amazon, Barnes & Noble, IndieBound, etc) Note: This is a required step. In order to participate in the challenge, you MUST review the book. Otherwise anyone could write down the name of a book and have an entry.

Step 3: Copy the link to your book review. Make sure to link to the actual review, not just the book ๐Ÿ™‚ For example, the link for my book review on Goodreads would look like this:


Another Note: If you struggle with this step, we’d be happy to help you find your review link.

Step 4: Come to this page (or the duplicate on our Facebook page). Take that link you copied and add it to the COMMENTS SECTION OF THIS POST (or the duplicate on Facebook).

A 3rd Note: Random comments on this page will not be approved. Only comments with book links will be approved.

That’s it!

There is not a single other step that you need to complete in order to add your link to the challenge and be entered in the drawing.

If you have any questions about the AtoZ Challenge or how to find your links, feel free to message us on Facebook or Instagram, or email at bookstacksngoldenmoms@gmail.com with the subject line ATOZ CHALLENGE QUESTION.

Happy reading, AtoZ Book Clubbers!

      Janine, this is what I was asking for, with one tiny exception. You’ve only linked to the book, not to any review. When you go to the book on Goodreads, your review should have text that says “show review” or “see review” underneath it. That’s where you find your review ๐Ÿ™‚ Otherwise, perfect!

      • Reply Janine+Skavnak September 7, 2021 at 2:43 pm

        Hi, I went through the list above and found that if you scroll down under the book you will find my review. So, I’m confused as I believe I copied the link as shown on the group Announcements. Please advise. Thanks.

    Hi there!
    I have just stumbled across this challenge today and although we are in month 5 of the year I would love to take part. I have written a blog post signing up and also linked to all my reviews for the books read so far this year that count towards the challenge. You can find the post here… https://www.bexbooksandstuff.com/post/the-a-to-z-reading-challenge (this is scheduled to go live at 7am tomorrow so you can click on it from then!)
