Hello all! So I, like many other people, love The Bake Off. It is awesome, and that is all that needs to be said on the matter. Last year, I did a sweepstakes with my friends from university and it was incredibly fun.
So I thought why not try it with all our bookish friends on Twitter? Here is how it's going to work:
Using a random number generator, I have assigned people their contestant. We will be rooting for whoever we are assigned to for the next eight-ish weeks. When the winner is decided, the bookish Tweeter with the winning contestant will get to choose a book that all the losers 'have' to read. And then we may well have a discussion about that book when we're all done. Simples!
Here is the breakdown of who got who:
Mat Sandy Ian Marie
Alice @alibelle Laura Salters, author @NathanaelSmith Daphne @wingedreviews
Nadiya Paul Ugne Flora
Maisie Robin Stevens, author Heather Keris Stainton, author
@ThemaisieAllen Jesse @thatjessebloke @MissWBooks
Dorret Alvin Tamal Stu
Chelle @ChelleyToy Lily @cieria Laura @Midnightstar3 Stacey @theprettybooks
WeiMingKam Me (Rachel)
As you can see, some contestants are doubled up (because I can't count properly and didn't want to leave anyone out) so if you're reading this and want to take part, we do still have spaces! Comment below with your Twitter handle and we'll make it happen.
Good Luck to all, and may the best baker win!
