I thought that I would host my very first book Instagram photo challenge! I am super nervous, but even if one person who isn’t me participates, I’ll be happy.
If I reach 1,500 followers on Instagram by my birthday (5th of April), I will also do a giveaway!
Here’s a blog post about the prompts for each day. I think they’re pretty self-explanatory, but some clarification is always nice.
Day 01 – New To Me
Feature or show a book that is new to you in the year 2020 – this can be a book you pre-ordered, or purchased, or received, as long as you got it this year, showcase it!
Day 02 – Girl Power
Since I love women in the lesbian way and in the feminist way, what a better prompt. Show off some incredible girls – characters and even their authors!
Day 03 – Cover Buy
I can’t be the only one who purchases solely for the covers, right? It helps if the story I’m interested in has an incredible cover – showcase some pretty covers!
Day 04 – Pink Books
Show off some pink books! Pink is my favourite colour, and I love seeing pink books, they make me happy.
Day 05 – #HappyLesbians
Today is my birthday! Send me some loves?
This prompt is to show off some happy lesbian characters. It’s not something that we see all too often in books, so I want to see all of the happy lesbians you can think of! Tag me in these photos, too!
Day 06 – Magical Reads
This can be books about magic, or it can be books you found magical – show off some magical reads!
Day 07 – Book Crush
Almost all of us get crushes on book characters at some point, show off a character you’ve had a crush on!
Day 08 – Books That Make You Happy
This one is always a favourite of mine to do because there are a lot of books that make me happy. And make me happy that they exist.

What is a book that lived up to the hype for you?
