#WishfulWonder | November Bookstagram Challenge 2016

Friday, October 21, 2016

Hello, friends! It’s time again to announce another Wishful Wonder book challenge. November will mark the second in collaboration with Tressa of Wishful Endings.

Before we get to the details of November’s challenge, here’s a shout out to everyone who has and is joining October’s. We so appreciate you taking the time to put together your creative versions of our prompts. You’ve put together some amazing and aesthetic photos.

For those of you toying with the idea but feeling like you don’t have the time or whatever other reason you have, let me attempt to tempt you. *Smile*

+ If you’re pressed for time for daily challenges, first and foremost, while we love it when you do, there’s no rule that says you must post every day.
+ If you think you can’t participate because of it being “too much work,” try taking a handful or several days’ worth of photos for an hour. (This is generally what I try to do, which is nice and I often find I have a little “stock pile” of Instagram photos as a result.)  
+ If you are looking to meet other Bookstagrammers (people in the book community on Instagram), joining a challenge is an excellent way to do this.
+ If you don’t think our #WishfulWonder challenge looks like a good fit for you, there are TONS of challenges on Instagram. A brief #Bookstagram or some variation of a #BookChallenge hashtag search will show this.
+ Still not convinced? Take a look at some of the stunning contributions to Tressa's and my October challenge

They’re amazing, right? Head over to their accounts for more such prettiness (the creativity though!). (Because who doesn’t like their IG feed to be full of people with as much of an appreciation for books as you!?)

With all of that said (did it sway you at all!? *wink*), let’s look at November’s challenge.

Everything for this month is self-explanatory, or I hope it is. Save for one day.

Introducing our November 2016 #WishfulWonder Challenge

If you have any questions about the prompts, please feel free to ask! Again the rules are simple. We’d love to see your pictures, so be sure to tag us with the usual, #WishfulWonder hashtag. Also, feel free to share this.
Happy Friday, Book Nerdigans. Wishing you a weekend of smiles, reflection and a good story.

Thank you for visiting Finding Wonderland.


  1. Yay! I've been having fun with the October book challenge, even though I haven't posted every day. I'm also sad that so many great books are on my Kindle and I don't have a physical copy to photograph!

    1. That's okay, Heidi! We're thrilled you've joined in when you can. I totally understand and to be honest, I probably won't even be able to catch every day - some because of the prompts others because the HOLIDAYS! We all get so busy. :)

      If you can join in, we'd love to see your pics. :)

  2. It looks like such a fun and interesting challenge! Maybe I'll participate too. Also, good luck! x

    1. It has been really fun, Laura. We'd love to have you join in if/when you can. :)
