Summer Read-a-Thon

ash background

Hey everyone, how are things?

Since it’s been getting very summery recently, I thought today I’d talk about contemporary YA books. It’s that time of the year when people are looking to grab those books which are perfect for the beach or bringing along on a picnic, or poolside, so I thought I’d suggest doing a summer read-a-thon. It’s just going to be me reading a bunch of contemporary YA books that I’m hoping to really enjoy, and I’m going to try and read one per week so if anyone wants to read the same book in the same week and then discuss it at the end of the book reviews I’ll post up for the books. Obviously, I know not everyone has access to all the books I’m going to be reading, and that’s cool, you can dip in and out of the read-a-thon and join in with as many or as few of the books as you like 😀 I’m going to aim for one a week, so you have a bit of time to grab copies from the store or friends or the library 😀

I’ll be posting up reviews as soon as I have finished reading these books but I’ll make sure there’s a section at the end of each review for people wanting to talk about the books, so if you want to join in, you can just find the review for the book you’re reading and scroll down to discuss it 😀

  1. Floored by Sara Bernard, Non Pratt, Holly Bourne, Melinda Salisbury, Tanya Bryne, Lisa Williamson and Eleanor Wood.
