The Ultimate Tour Experience

After a rather successful first year, we at Storytellers On Tour decided that we want to give you more than just awesome books to read. We also know you like reading challenges, so we created one in which you can compete all year long. All you have to is collect tickets (prompts) to upgrade them to V.I.P tickets. And even win prizes! We hope you will have just as much fun as we had coming up with the prompts. Keep scrolling for all the details!

The V.I.P. Tickets
The Rules
  • Take part in our events! Each book you read during one of our events (tours and book blitzes count) is eligible to collect maximum of 2 tickets on any given card. For hard mode, you can go with 1 book/ticket.
  • We’ll do 3 check-ins throughout the year when you’ll be welcome to post about your progress (this does not mean you can’t do it anytime you want, please feel free to do so!) and enter to win one of our giveaways. These check-ins will happen:
    • April 12th – 18th
    • August 9th – 15th
    • December 13th -19th
  • Between the participants (those who make at least one post during the check-in weeks and will fill out our google form we’ll be sending out) we’ll draw winners for giveaways. If you only collected one ticket, that still counts as long as you post about it on either your blog or any of the social media platforms and tag us and fill out our form.
  • Those who’ll have at least one V.I.P ticket (this can be done by collecting all the tickets on the cards) by December 19th will be entered to win the grand prize. More V.I.P tickets (maximum of 3) mean extra entries into the drawing. We’ll draw the winner on December 20th.
  • During the duration of the challenge, we’ll give you one chance to switch two prompts of your choice. For example, you only need the “Man’s Best Friend” ticket to upgrade to V.I.P, and you already have the “Blood suckers” ticket from another card. You can ask for a switch between these two tickets. If you’d like to do this, please email us at
  • To help you with the challenge, we’ll list on every book tour page which tickets any given book is eligible for.


If you are not familiar with these bingo type reading challenges, here is a quick example of how it works:

Let’s say I have the above tickets to collect and I’m reading Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone. I could match that book with:
  • Let’s Get the Party Started (for Harry playing the flute for the 3 headed dog),
  • An Unforgettable Sidekick (both for Ron and Hermione or even Hagrid),
  • Man’s Best Friend (for above-mentioned dog),
  • The More The Merrier (for their trio, or for the Quidditch team),
  • A Villain You Love to Hate (Voldemort or even Malfoy),
  • The Wings of Change (for Hagrid having a dragon, or just because things start to change in the Wizarding World with Harry’s coming of age, and also because Voldemort is trying to make his come back),
  • Here Be Dragons (again, said dragon),
  • Bring On the Magic (well, duh),
  • Simply Mythical (for the 3 headed dog among other things).


Please note that the given prompts/tickets are absolutely open to interpretation by YOU. Some of them are pretty clear, some can be open to debate, but as long as you think a book fills that particular prompt, you are good to go.

The Prizes

During the challenge, you will have the chance to win one (1) of four (4) giveaways. Three (3) during check-in weeks and one (1) grand prize. If you win one of the 3 general giveaways, we will exclude you from winning the others, except the grand prize. For which everyone will be eligible who upgraded their tickets to a V.I.P. one, regardless of whether they already won a giveaway or not.

The drawing dates and prizes will be as follows*:
