June Bookstagram Challenges (and what I got up to today)
#bookishthisorthat – hosted by:
With each daily prompt, you choose which of the two choices you prefer. So, let’s say the choice was between Game of Thrones and the Lord of the Rings, you choose which one is your favourite and create a photo using your choice (and FYI, as much as I love GoT, it would be LotR all the way!!)
#bookishsummertrinkets – hosted by:
This one’s pretty self-explanatory – you basically post a photo containing the prompt for that day which features the various trinkets/ props that bookstagrammers use to supplement their photos. This one sounded really different and fun so I couldn’t resist taking part (even though originally I was only going to do one challenge).
Day 19 of #bookishthisorthat: Purple / Orange
Well, purple is one of my favourite colours (along with turquoise) so I am obviously going to choose purple! I love purple on book covers, whether it is a newer book or a classic like this copy of Jane Eyre (which I admit, I totally bought for the aesthetic – I already own several copies of the book!) 💜💜
Day 19 of #bookishsummertrinkets: Bookbed
I wasn’t 100% sure what today’s prompt was actually asking for so I decided to go with the most literal interpretation and made a bed out of books! You will notice a theme in there somewhere. 😉
What Else I got up to Today
Not much, typical Monday really. Back to work (yuck) and stuck in a stuffy office (double yuck) staring out at the lovely sunshine wishing I was outside. On the plus side, it’s supposed to be sunny the rest of the week and I’m off after Wednesday until next Tuesday so hopefully the weather holds.
