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 3 of #bookishthisorthat: Thriller / Romance
I like romance in my books as much as the next person but I generally prefer it to just be a part of the story not the main focus. I will therefore be choosing thriller as my selection today and who better than the queen of young adult thrillers Lois Duncan? Here is a selection of some of her books.
Day 3 of #bookishsummertrinkets: Miniature
Throne of Glass originally was a Cinderella retelling – I’m sure little Cinderella and Gus would approve! I’ve yet to read this series but it is definitely near the top of my TBR pile. 🐭
What Else I got up to Today
At the cinema again today (with a little detour to Starbucks!) to see the new Pirates of the Caribbean film which I actually enjoyed in spite of my reservations.
