Do You Have What it Takes to Be an XOXpert?

Hello, our fabulous readers! We have a little quiz for you. Tally how many of these describe you…

  • I have stayed up way later than I should have finishing the last few pages of my latest obsession—with absolutely no regret in the morning.
  • I have been told to get my nose out of a book and do something. (Hello! I am!)
  • I have bookshelves upon bookshelves and still have piles of books that have no home.
  • I have compared my IRL boyfriend (or fiancée or husband or prospective man) to my book boyfriend.
  • I have been jealous of a leading lady’s lingerie wardrobe.
  • I have a strict stance on whether book pages can be dog-eared.
  • I think it’s ridiculous when someone asks me what my favorite HEA is. (How can I pick just one?!)
  • I have a TBR list that is longer than my grocery list.

Did you say yes to five or more of these? Then we have the program for you!

    Oh, this sounds like a lot of fun!!

  2. Ohh, this sounds so awesome. I accidentally submitted my form before I was finished so had to do another one. This would be so much fun to be a part of, so fingers are crossed. If a soul is needed I have four brothers. You can have your pick of the lot. 😀

  3. Great fun indeed!

  4. We’re so glad you’re excited! We know our readers have great things to contribute, so thanks for applying!

    This is so awesome. But I don’t do social media, does that negate me? 🙁

    I’m having trouble posting this application is there something I need to do? I’m logged in and I’m really interested in turning in my paperwork help please!

      It might be the length of the description for the Book Boyfriend questions. You need at least 300 characters.

      I didn’t submit mine because of that.

  7. This seems like such an incredible opportunity to learn and chat about new reads. So exciting! 🙂

  8. I match the description but I can’t commit to the time. Thank you for the opportunity 🙂
