BBA November: Tribute to Jennifer Rardin Month

When we all heard the sad news about Jennifer last month, thanks again to an idea started by Steph @ Paper Cut Reviews, we decided to do something special. I know a few bloggers, including fellow BBA-ers, who met her and wish there were more wonderful people like her. I myself never met her, but her series is one of the first urban fantasy series that I read that wasn’t a young adult. As you can tell, I was hooked.

I’ll go in to my love of the series more next month. Today I want to let you know that November will be dedicated to Jennifer Rardin and her Jaz Parks series. Our tribute to her.

This task is a bit daunting, so there will not be just one Book Bloggers Anonymous host next month but two. Jo-Anne @ Strange Candy Reviews will be co-hosting with me. She also designed this fabulous button for us, so please spread the love & post it on your sidebar. :)

There will be book reviews, guest posts, giveaways & more between the two blogs. You will all have a chance to link up reviews. For other things, see below.


Now, I know there are many others of you that love this series and have memories you wish to share, so I want to give you a chance to do so. Below are two forms to fill out. One is for anyone to fill out. In it is a place to put your favorite quote from the Jaz series and/or your favorite memory about the series or meeting Jennifer, if you were lucky enough to get the chance to.

The second form is for any authors/bloggers/etc. that would like a chance for their own guest post/interview/dedication/giveaway/etc. next month.

If you would prefer to send an email to me for either, that is perfectly fine. I’m also open to suggestions.


Fill out this form for quotes & memories.

Fill out this form for guest posts/dedications/giveaways/etc.

I think this will be fantastic. I am excited to read the first book as I will be new to the series but it sounds really good!

This is great and I posted it on my book club's blog sidebar. Not sure what to do but I would love to participate. Jennifer was a great author and had an awesome sense of humor. I never met her but followed her on FB and read interviews and her books of course.

Wonderful Amanda, great idea! I'm sorry I haven't read the Jaz Parks series yet, but so many people praise it I added it to my TBR list. I cant wait to see what everyone's memories or favourite quotes are in connection with this series.

I've read the 3 first books and I love them. When I read the new, I couldn't believe it. I put the button in my blog.
