It is now December, and I have some very exciting Christmas-related news to share with you all today. As you might know I am part of a book club called TeaTimeReaders. We are this month reading My True Love Gave to Me, which is a Christmas themed anthology edited by the one and only Stephanie Perkins. We would love if you joined us, we already have discussions up for each story in our Goodreads group here, and we will have one big one for the whole book December 30th.
But now for the news! Inspired by this novel we have created a bookstagram challenge. It is running from 12-24 December, and each challenge is inspired by the different titles of the stories in My True Love Gave to Me. You do not have to read the book to participate in the challenge. We are hosting the challenge on our Instagram called @TeaTimeReaders and it is happening under the hashtag #TeaTimeChristmas. I hope you will join us, we will feature our favorite pictures on our private accounts and our shared book club one. You can below see explanations on all the challenges.
