Feature: Instagram Photo Challenge #SignedBookSundays
July Themes & June Wrap-up

So ever since February of 2016 I have been posting on a hashtag I created on Instagram called #SignedBookSundays – and back in January of 2017, I teamed up with Christy, @diamondxgirl, to create monthly themed challenges and we give away a signed book to one participant every month! I started the hashtag because I was not feeling one of the most popular Sunday memes, #socksunday. Luckily I did find a few like minded bookstagrammers who also wanted an alternative! Some people who participate use both tags, I don’t really care, we just love collecting signed books, and seeing other people’s signed books is so much fun!

Also, I somehow missed picking a May winner so that person will be announced on the Instagram post! Christy will announce the June winner on her Instagram post!

So here are July’s themes – I hope you will join in on the fun and be sure to use the hashtag #SignedBookSundays to have a chance to win a signed book! You can @ both me @bookcrushin & @diamondxgirl so we don’t miss a post!



June Highlights:





Today’s #signedbooksundays is all about LGBTAIAPD+ pride so I wanted to show off some great signed books AND my first #bookrainbow! I tried to make as many books #ownvoices or main characters as possible, but I wasn’t entirely successful + I have a LOT of m/m. Clearly I need to go shopping for more books with queer characters! 🌈 Shadow Run: genderqueer Seven Ways We Lie: pan + aro/ace Geekerella: f/f (This Is Where It Ends is on the very bottom & not visible, but it’s f/f too!) The Names They Gave Us: trans (not own voices, but I wanted at least one book with a trans character!) Everything else is m/m. 🌈 What are some of your favorite books featureing queer characters? Ownvoices are great, but any recs are appreciated & welcome! 🌈 🌈 🌈 🌈 #bookstagram #instabook #bookish #bookporn #booknerd #bookaddict #bibliophile #bookworm #bookdragon #bookcandle #booksandcandles #booksandflowers #novellyyours #shadowrun #timekeeper #morehappythannot #sevenwayswelie #geekerella #lastseenleaving #thefivestagesofandrewbrawley #thenamestheygaveus #simonvsthehomosapiensagenda #historyisallyouleftme #aristotleanddantediscoverthesecretsoftheuniverse #signedbook #rainbowreads
