Today I am highlighting Justread Book Tours as they celebrate their 5 year anniversary!
First and foremost, one of my favorite things about joining a book tour company is all the different genres I get introduced to.
I’ve had the pleasure of reading titles from all across the genre spectrum. Books like Beauty From The Ashes a YA Fantasy novel, The Secret Society of Salzburg a WWII Novel, or even a contemporary book like Range. There have been so many opportunities to broaden my scope of reading and I am introduced to new authors all the time!
Second, is being introduced to new authors and growing my knowledge of authors I do know through Author Interviews and Guest Posts!
In just this past year I’ve gotten to interview authors like Jerry B. Jenkins, Erica Vetsch, and Christen Krumm.
Plus, I’ve even gotten to have authors like Natasha D. Frazier, Laurel Blount, and M. Liz Boyle post to my site as guests!
Third, each time you get chosen to help an author you get to use your imagination and creativity. When I get chosen to participate in a book tour it is a celebration and an immediate feeling of inspiration striking.
I ask myself, “how can I show this book off? Does it fit into one of my upcoming book reel ideas? Can I make a good graphic of it? Will it have good quote graphics?”
Being apart of a book touring community like Justreads is an endless fountain of inspiration, creativity, and community.
Fourth, being a book tour host of Justread tours has also has the wonderful perk of introducing me to some wonderful book minded friends who I otherwise would not have met.
Check out their book review platforms below:
Debbie from @Pickagoodbook

Rachel from @A.Wee.Bit.Bookish
Rose from @AdventurousBookWorm

+ Many, many more!
Fifth, here are 5 books I’ve found by becoming a book tour host:
- Claiming Her Legacy by Linda Goodnight
- The Forever Farmhouse by Lee Tobin McClain
- The Call of the Sea by Sian Ann Bessey
- Portal Slayer: Beneath the Shadows by S.L. Dooley
- Far From Home by Mabel Ninan
There are so many wonderful reasons to become a book tour host even beyond the ones I listed. I truly enjoy it and hope you join our bookish community! More information below on how to become a book touring host below.
