Books & Bouquets 2023 Spring Reading Challenge
I'm not sure I can tell you guys how excited I am for spring. This winter has been rough to say the least and releasing our reading challenge has become one of my first signs that the current season is almost over.
We're visiting a different royal court of the Bookverse and for spring, I wanted to do a bright, floral library and I was a little wary of the colors I picked at first but by the time I finished the kit, I had fallen in love with it!
Last year, our spring reading challenge had a few nods to Rapunzel so this year, I decided that the kit has to have a few nods to another fairytale...one of my favorites growing up in fact.
Beauty and the Beast! Plus, Belle would 100% hang out in this library so I felt like it fits.
As always, this is just the official season, but these are designed to be self-start so you can decide when you begin and end the challenge. This way, you can do the spring challenge when it is the most appropriate for you, either by weather or some other reason.
Our weekly kits will come in the three formats -- vertical, journaling and an "anti-kit" that is just for people that want a bit of deco! We will also have a few add ons if you use certain items more than others -- checklist boxes, reading stickers, washi type stickers, etc.
As for the challenge itself, we will have a group read for it, though if you choose not to read the group read you can count it as a free space. We will start voting on the group read in the Creating & Co Book Club starting the first week of March and we'll have it officially picked a week or so later.
There will be 11 prompts other than the group read.
In case this is your first challenge with us, here's how it works:
- Each prompt on the challenge has a number that corresponds to it. Let's say for the first book you read, you pick the first prompt of a book with "yellow cover".
- You can write in the title of the book you read in the challenge table
- And then pick a book sticker that looks like the one that has the 5 on it in the empty shelf. Place that book sticker over the greyed out book labeled 5 on the shelf!
- Repeat until you fill up your shelf!
