Join me for my June 2018 book photo challenge!

Welcome to my June photo challenge! This year, all my monthly challenges will be going under the hashtag #Ampersand2018, though I’ll be creating prompts for each month as usual.

I’ve given ideas for each prompt below, but you can interpret them however you choose! Don’t forget to check out my tips for conquering a book photo challenge!

  1. Circle: It’s National Doughnut Day in the US, but I’m totally using that as a reason to indulge in some sweet treats. Try creating a #bookcircle!
  2. Season: June marks the start of winter here in Australia. What season are you in? Or what’s your favourite season?
  3. Open: Open books!
  4. Pride: June is Pride Month, so get on board with a #bookishrainbow.
  5. Nature: Take your books outside to celebrate World Environment Day.
  6. Six: Sixth books in a series, six books you love, etc.
  7. Canon: Your favourite head-canon, or your favourite book from the literary canon.
  8. Sea: It’s World Ocean Day! Create a #seaofbooks.
  9. Cloud: What puts you on cloud nine? What books and other things are making you really happy at the moment?
  10. Tea: Books and tea! Or spill the tea on a book you didn’t like.
  11. Narrator: A narrator you love or hate.
  12. Debut: Your favourite debut novel.
  13. Headphones: It’s audiobook month! Are you a fan?
  14. Life: It’s World Blood Donor Day. Donating blood and sharing the gift of life is such an important act. What’s something in your life that you couldn’t live without?
  15. Closer: Focus on the smaller details of your books. Cover details, typography, etc.
  16. Bloom: It’s Bloomsday! Celebrate with some #booksandflowers.
  17. Bookshelves: Show off your collection!
  18. Mischief: A mischievous character. This is also the anniversary of a certain character death in Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix and I’m STILL NOT OVER IT.
  19. Blank: Honestly, I was drawing a blank for this prompt so that’s what it became. Sooooo let’s talk about books we know we’ve read but can barely remember.
  20. Design: Your favourite art print, tote bag, or other merch.
  21. Music: It’s World Music Day! What music do you like to listen to when you’re reading or writing? Or focus on books that heavily future music in the plot or title.
  22. Wear: It’s Fashion Friday! Show off your wearable merch.
  23. Bargain: Lifeline Bookfest is back and I’m keen for some bargain books. Are you a fan of secondhand books? What are some of the best bargains you’ve found?
  24. Believe: This one’s a double whammy: it’s Fairy Day, and it’s also the anniversary of the day Lord Voldemort returned and the Ministry refused to believe it. What do you believe in?
  25. Love: All you need is love. Celebrate Global Beatles Day with some of your best-loved books.
  26. Begin: Here’s where it all began for me: the 21st anniversary of the publication of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone. What are your favourite first books?
  27. Dedicated: Book dedications, or something you’re dedicated to collecting.
  28. Royal: Your favourite princes, princesses, queens, and kings.
  29. Fit: One of the biggest struggles for a bookworm is whether their current read will fit in their bag or whether all their books will fit on their shelves. What are you struggling with at the moment?
  30. Wrap-up: What books did you read this month?

I hope you can join me for #Ampersand2018! Let me know that you’re participating by commenting/reblogging so I can check out your photos!
