Since I had so much fun doing a photo challenge for April, and had people participating, I thought that I would do one for May as well!
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 – Bookmark Love
Show off a bookmark (or multiple!) that you love. Or even one that you use frequently.
Day 02 – Feminist Books
I love feminist books, show off ones you’ve loved, or that you’d love to read!
Day 03 – Red Books
Show off as many, or as few, red books as you want to.
Day 04 – #MapMonday
So many books have maps in them these days – choose a map you love, or multiple, and show it off!
Day 05 – Favourite Book of 2020
What has been your favourite book of 2020 so far? We’re into the second third of the year (omg!) so I’d love to know what everyone has been loving this year!
Day 06 – Fandom Love
A fair amount of books have fandoms these days – do you like fandoms? Are you a part of any? Show your favourite fandom, or favourite things from your fandom, if you can.
For example, I love Harry Potter, and I have a few Funko Pops that I am sure I’ll use for this photo.
Or The Raven Cycle has a few fandom-ish items out in the world that I might use, too.
Day 07 – #ThrowbackThursday
Throw it back to a book you read 5 or more years ago. I’d love to see what people were enjoying in the past!

What’s a book you’ve read with great character development?
