5th Year Party Kick-off


Hi fellow SFR lovers!

Today we’re kicking off a week-long event to celebrate the blog’s fifth birthday. We have tons of fun, author features, and great prizes bundles for you. Here is what’s coming up and how to win the goodies!

The Best SFR Book Hero Contest

The search for the best hero in an SFR is underway. Now through Sunday (7/19) we are taking nominations on our Facebook page. Find the post pinned to the top of the page and add a comment with your SFR book boyfriend’s:

  • Best traits
  • Book Title
  • Author

Come back next week to vote on the poll I’ll be posting. Bring your friends and tell them to vote, too. Spread the word. We want to find the best hero out there, so we can all celebrate his glory (not a euphemism)!

    Best to you all,


  2. Happy Anniversary! And, thanks for the giveaways. All of the bundles look great. Some of the books I have not heard of( yea, new heroes), some I have read(they were great) and some I already have on my (ever growing) wishlist.

  3. Five years, wow! I just discovered the SFR online community and this means I have many archives to go through. Thank you for the giveaway, but thanks even more for blogging!

      • I am quickly amassing a backlog and slowly going through it after combing the ‘essentials’ from the SFR links. That’s the starting point. Thank you, Charlee (and everyone!)

  4. I’ve only recently found out about you, but I’m really enjoying what I’m seeing. Here’s to the next 5 (and more)!

  5. Really enjoy your blog. I have found many new authors to explore. Thanks for the contests and Happy Anniversary!
