Jazz Age January

Happy New Year, Bettys and old boys, flappers and fellas! I had an absolutely copacetic time ringing in the new year, but now I’m down to do some Roaring ’20s reading. Jazz Age January, a monthlong celebration of literature from and about the 1920s, starts today!

As a reminder, readers are invited to read novels written by Jazz Age authors, non-fiction about the ’20s and its major figures, and historical fiction set during this time period. It’s a great incitement to finally read those F. Scott Fitzgerald books that have been sitting on your shelves for years, learn about influential flappers, or indulge in a sensational novel about Hemingway’s wives.

All you have to do to participate is read at least one Jazz Age book and write about it on your blog! Non-review posts are welcome, too! Feel free to write informational posts about the Jazz Age and its authors, recommendation lists, or anything that catches your fancy.

I will post a link-up each Saturday this month where participants can share the posts they have written. The final link-up will go live on Feb. 7 to allow participants to wrap everything up. Link-ups will be posted:

  • Jan. 10
  • Jan. 17
  • Jan. 24
  • Jan. 31
  • Feb. 7

If you haven’t already signed up but want to join in the fun, head on over to the sign-up post to learn more. This challenge is open all month, so don’t worry about joining a bit late! Not sure what to read? Check out my Jazz Age January reading guide or take a look at my reading plans for the month.

If you have posted about your Jazz Age January reading plans, or write about your plans in the upcoming week, feel free to link to your post in the Mister Linky widget below!

Lastly, we’re using the hashtag #JazzAgeJan to talk about this challenge on Twitter!

  • I think last year I read a volume of Fitzgerald’s short stories. I need to see what I can find in the library!

  • Happy Jazz Aging, everyone!

  • I just posted on my plans to read Z: A Novel of Zelda Fitzgerald. Can’t wait to let you know all about it!

    Ok, I’m linking to join in hopes I get to a Jazz Age book! I have two possibilities already!

    • Yes you can! And you’re welcome to post your name on the sign-up linky; it helps me get an idea of how many people are participating.
