HAMILTON CHALLENGE | bookstagram and read-a-long

I have collaborated with my best bookstagram (and blog) buddy Tilda, from tildareads, and we have created a Hamilton bookstagram challenge. It is taking place from February 1st to March 17th and there is a challenge for each song. To participate post your pictures under the hashtag #HAMTILOMECHALLENGE. I am really looking forward to seeing all of your pictures and I will of course feature some of my favorites on my Instagram (@bookwormwholived). If you haven’t listened to Hamilton (first of all, what are you doing?? Get on that, it’s amazing!) you can of course still participate in the challenges, you just won’t understand the references to the songs – we can still have great fun though.

We are also doing a read-a-long for ‘Hamilton: The Revolution’. We will each day read the song of the day (including all the essays etc. up to that point), and then have daily discussions in a chat group on Instagram (contact me or Tilda and we will add you!). 

Are any of you planning to participate? If you have any questions regarding any of this please don’t hesitate to ask them!
