I’m back! and with another monthly photo challenge. Making and hosting a monthly challenge last year was so fun, I loved scrolling through the tag and seeing all the photos so much that I decided to do round two! Though I’ve learned that trying to come up with an entire month’s worth of inspiring prompts is … pretty hard.
Anyway, here is #MAYIVEREAD (mayiveread .. todayiveread .. get it 😉). Read on for a full list of the prompts plus a little bit of what my idea was behind each one; it’s not as vague as I think my last challenge was but I’m still really excited to see how everyone interprets each day.

I am soso excited and so happy to finally share this with you guys! Making and hosting a monthly photo challenge has been something I’ve wanted to do since creating my bookstagram so for the past couple of months I’ve been working on one! This one!
I tried to make this challenge a mix of vague prompts that could be more inspo-ish and simple straightforward prompts so that there was something for everyone, be as creative (or not creative) as you want and I can’t wait to see how everyone interprets each day!
I’m going to list all the days below for accessibility and I’ll explain a little of what my idea was behind each prompt in case anyone needs some extra inspo.
Throughout the month I’ll be going through the tag and sharing some of my favourite photos so don’t forget to use the hashtag #HollyJollyReads in your posts!

So, here’s a quick and easy candle DIY that’ll have your photos looking extra lived in (or spooky 👻 just in time for Halloween), perfect for the Autumn season!

I like to hoard books in my online TBR like a dragon hoards treasure which means it quickly becomes a small mountain of books that honestly? I’ll probably never read. I decided to go through and clear out my TBR shelf after almost half of my a little over a thousand shelved books were want-to-read’s, I ended up getting rid of almost five pages of books and doing so actually felt cathartic (well, as cathartic as clicking a little x and watching it vanish can be). So here are a few tips/things I told myself while unshelving that will hopefully help you declutter!

Today marks one whole year of bookstagram, 365 days of taking photos and rambling about books. I thought it’d be nice to look back on my feed and some of my old reading habits to see how much I’ve changed.
