Hello friends and fellow book lovers! I know I’m a little bit late with this month’s “My Favorite” prompts but I wasn’t thinking about them when I did my last post. Because of that, I knew I wanted to feature them on Monday rather than Tuesday. I know that no one really partcipates but I really like to do them. Anyways, let’s get into “My Favorite” is and the prompts I picked out for July.
BookishlyRebecca is now the host of the “My Favorite” meme, a weekly meme posted on Wednesday. Originally started by Maureen’s Books, she agreed to let me take over.
As Maureen described it, “In this meme, we share every week something we love with each other. Because let’s face it. The world can be a dark place and it’s to share something positive. Each week I will post a new My Favorite.. post about one subject and I’ll tell you all about it. And the best part? Everyone is welcome to join. The only thing you’ll have to do is sign up on my weekly post, link back to this post, and visit others.”
July 2020 “My Favorite” Prompts
- July 1st: My Favorite…Black Romance Book
- July 8th: My Favorite….Black Author
- July 15th: My Favorite…Black Non-Fiction Book
- July 22nd: My Favorite…Black Books on my TBR
- July 29th: My Favorite…Black Creator (Youtuber, Blogger…etc)
With everything going on the past two months, I knew I wanted to make sure that I used my platform to uplift Black creators, authors and books. I know it’s not much but hopefully, you’re able to either share some of your favorites or find out some new favorites from me. Even if I’m the only one who does this, I want to use my voice for good and to amplify Black bookish things.
