One of the most awesome things about the book blogging community is all the events that you can participate in. Here are a few that you can join in June.
June #BookBlogger Events
May 28 – Sep. 5. 2016 Big Book Summer Reading. How many 400+ page books can you read from Memorial Day to Labor Day. I look forward to this challenge every year!
June 1 – August 31. Summer 2016 Seasonal Reading Challenge. I love a good challenge, and this seasonal one is just short enough and challenging enough with points and categories.
June 1 – 7. SciFi Summer Read-a-Thon. Read as much science fiction (or fantasy) as you can for #SciFiSummerJune.
June 18 – 19. Summer Mini Bloggiesta. Work on your blog, work with others, and get engaged in the book blogging community.
June 1 – 30. Summertime Blog & Reader Challenge. This challenge is to help you overcome the summertime slump, give you easy topics to blog about and discuss. A chance to meet new bloggers and interact with them about similar subjects and get exposure for your blog. #SummerBookBlogChallenge.
May 1 – Aug. 31. Fun in the Sun Reading Challenge. Read as little or as many books as you want but books may be any genre but must have a fun in the sun theme, a cover with these elements on it, or something in the title that is about the theme. This includes everything associated with spring and summer such as weddings, swimming pools, the ocean, beaches, lounge chairs, flowers, sunglasses, palm trees, vacations, the sun, a garden, rain, thunderstorms, heat and so on.
