December 2017 Bookstagram Challenge
Wherever did 2017 go, Bookstagrammers? We’ve gone from challenge to challenge, celebrated old books and new, if you’re anything like me, taken thousands and thousands of pictures in order to get the hundreds that we ultimately shared with everyone this year.
For our last challenge of 2017 Syd (@deertales) and I are inviting you to go on a bookish rewind! This month is a mix of sharing your favorite reads of the year, celebrating the beautiful work you’ve done, and assigning superlatives to your favorite books and characters, and maybe even your fellow bookstagrammers!
Below are some suggestions on how you could use each day's theme, but I love seeing people who interpret our challenges in unique ways, so always bring your own unique eye to the challenge.
