July's Read & Gush: Bookstagram Photo Challenge

Read and Gush July Bookstagram Photo Challenge

Summer is officially here according to the meteorological calendar... and the hours might be more full of sunlight, but they also are packed to the brim with activities. Which means my writing brain is fried, and I have very little to say...

But that's alright because the beauty of Instagram is that you don't have to add a ton of words, just share your pictures!  And for the photo challenge this July we are focusing on photos - with a few fun caption ideas thrown in.  So I hope you can join in!

I hope you will join in... just follow me on Instagram and check it out! And please follow my lovely co-hosts - they are super sweet, you will love them, I promise!
