#ReadingPride Book Challenge & Giveaway \\ For Bookstagram and\or Book Blogs & Booktube

Hello Bibliophiles!

Exactly one week from today (Friday, May 24th) is June 1st. AKA the start of Pride MonthI’m sure a lot of you already knew that, but this June is particularly important to me because this is the first year that I’m out as pansexual.

So why not celebrate? This challenge is a fun way to help you get through some of the LGBTQ+ books on your TBR, shout out some favs and also get the chance to win some bookish prizes! Because who doesn’t like free bookish things?

I’m going to go over rules for all the different platforms and the prizes will be at the bottom of the page!

There are technically TWO challenges: one designed specifically for Bookstagram, and one for Book Bloggers\Booktubers.

You are welcome to enter both! There are different prizes for each platform, so do whatever you want. I would love to see this on booktube as well as on blogs, so don’t hesitate to share if you know someone who might be interested!

 

Blogger \ Booktube Rules

I’m not going to give you specific prompts for posts, and instead, I’m going to leave that up to you. There’s also no specific schedule to have these posts up (if you chose to at all) – it’s completely flexible for your posting preferences!  \Throughout June I’ll be doing a lot of recommendation posts as well as some other fun LGBTQ+ challenges and stuff. So feel free to get inspiration from my blog as well.

Every post\video with an LGBTQ+ theme (TBR, Reading Recommendations, Favorite LGBTQ+ characters, etc.) count as +4 entries! Be sure to put #ReadingPride in the hashtags or title so I can find it.

Every book read in June (that you’ve never read before) with an LGBTQ+ major character* counts as +3 entries! Tackle those TBR books! You can either tag #ReadingPride in your review tags\title or make a wrap-up at the end of the month with the hashtag in your tags\title so I can find it.

There are two ways to keep track of your books and posts:

-Make a wrap-up at the end of the month with all the LGBTQ+ books you read\posts you wrote that month.

-Put #ReadingPride in the tags or title of each post so I can find it.

If I don’t like\comment on your posts\videos, it means I haven’t seen it yet! Feel free to send it to me so I don’t miss the entries!

*books do not necessarily need to have an LGBTQ+ main character. Just a major character (love interest, major side character, etc.) For example, Molly’s sister in Upside of Unrequited would be a major character, but Vivi from The Cruel Prince would not be.

I have photo prompts for you! It’s also on my Instagram if you want to save it on there as well.

You don’t have to participate every day, but the more you do the more entries you have. If you don’t like the prompts, then any post featuring an LGBTQ+ book or character with #ReadingPride will also count!

-Every photo prompt completed count as +1 entry.

-Every book you read (that you’ve never read before) with an LGBTQ+ major character* counts as +3 entries! Tackle those TBR books! You can either tag #ReadingPride in your review tags\title or make a wrap-up at the end of the month with the hashtag in your tags\title so I can find it.
