Join me for my November book photo challenge!


Welcome to my November book photo challenge! Join me on Instagram for a fun month of book photography, or play along here on WordPress or on Tumblr or Bloglovin’! Just let me know which platform you’re on so I can come and stalk your pictures 🙂

Want to know more about the prompts? Everything is explained here. Just remember, these explanations are for inspiration or guidance. You can interpret any of the prompts however you choose.

  1. Author: Today is Authors’ Day and it’s also the very first day of NaNoWriMo, if you’re participating! Post about your favourite author or a piece that you’re writing.
  2. Brick: Those fat books with which you could probably kill a human. Or actual bricks with books.
  3. Cliché: Celebrate Cliché Day with some of your favourites!
  4. Neon: I will not quote John Mayer. I will not quote John Mayer. I will not quote John Mayer. Just neon colours, okay?
  5. Fireworks: Remember, remember, the fifth of November. The day on which you could post about Guy Fawkes, regular fireworks or fireworks of the romantic kind.
  6. Hype: Good hype? Bad hype? Hype person to a musician? All welcome.
  7. Fingertip: Balance something on your fingertip! Warning: this may result in hilarity and/or injury.

  15. Lie: That little white lie you always tell about your reading habits/an unreliable narrator/a book with a lot of lies and secrets.
  16. Mirror: I just really love fun mirror photos. Play with reflections!
