Vote for a 2024 Prompt!
WEEK FOUR: September 25 – October 1, 2023
It’s time for our last vote for a 2024 prompt! (You can find the finalists from weeks one and two here! Week three results are currently being tallied and will be announced on Wednesday.)
For our final vote in September, we’re voting on the prompt, “Related to the word…”
Below you’ll find ten different words to choose from — and each one has an incredible range of interpretations and books that could fit them. This prompt style has more flexibility than any of the other prompts we’ve voted on this month, so now is your time to get extra creative! (The word could relate to cover design, title, theme, plot scenes, character traits or development, emotions it evokes in readers, etc.) Pick the word that inspires or challenges you!
How it works:
1. Every Monday in September, watch for a new poll. (Be sure to sign up for e-mails so you don’t miss it!) Each week we’ll be voting on a different prompt, and each vote will contain ten different options to choose from.
2. Vote for your favorite option — the one you’d most like to see on the 2024 challenge. Each week, you have up to three chances to vote. Once in the Facebook group, once in the Goodreads group, and once on Instagram. You can vote as strategically as you’d like — voting for the same option three times, or voting for a different option on each.
3. Once the poll closes, total votes will be tallied across all three platforms (Facebook, Goodreads, and Instagram.) The TOP TWO picks for each week will be named finalists and entered into the final running for the 2024 challenge.
4. On October 7, the winning prompts will be randomly drawn from the weekly finalists. These winning prompts will appear on the 2024 challenge. (This will happen for all four of our September polls, giving us a total of four member-voted prompts for 2024!) The LIVE draw will take place on the 52 Book Club YouTube channel on Saturday, October 7 at 2pm ET (Eastern Time.) We will send out an e-mail reminder closer to the date, but feel free to subscribe to our YouTube channel now for more bookish videos!
WEEK FOUR VOTE:
Week four voting period:
Monday, September 25, 2023 until Sunday, October 1, 2023
Prompt: “Related to the word _______”
This week we are voting for a prompt “related to the word ______.” Below you’ll find ten different options to consider. The top two prompts from this week will be named finalists. On October 7th, both finalists will be entered into a random draw. The winning prompt from that draw will then appear on our 2024 challenge.
For this prompt, feel free to think outside the box. The books that match the final prompt must be somehow related to the word chosen, but what that looks like is up to you. The word could match the design or vibe of the cover art, appear as part of the title or hook, play a prominent part in the plot or theme of the book, evoke that feeling while you’re reading, relate to a character trait, etc. This is a prompt that is open to wide interpretation, and these are all important things to keep in mind as you’re casting your vote!
Remember, you have until Sunday, October 1 to vote in our week four poll! (As with our previous weeks, you can vote up to three times: once on Facebook, once on Goodreads, and once on Instagram.)
