Happy National Go Barefoot Day!

I'm kicking off my shoes and ready to get some summer reading done! Today I'm here to share my Summer TBR list with all of you. I've decided to delve into my overgrown pile of paperback/hardcover books this summer. I've picked an array of genres and types of books:

(Click the covers below to get more info)

I've been meaning to continue this series for a while! I hope I love it as much as the first.

After taking a Masterclass on tv writing, I'm headed back to the basics and rereading this book so I can start working on my own super secret pilot. 

This has been sitting on my desk for a little while now. Will be reading it first!

My all-time favorite series is Women of the Otherworld. I have no idea where I got this book, but I'm excited to jump back into this world!!

The YA Summer Scavenger Hunt (free books and giveaways!)

  


In June, the Alliance of Young Adult Authors is sponsoring a massive young adult scavenger hunt. This is a chance to meet some new authors, grab a bunch of free books, and sign up to win a whole bunch of epic prizes! In addition to the $500 grand prize, each of the authors will be offering free books and other prizes.

RULES

Each author will be given a special keyword, which will be bolded and all caps like this: BUTTERFLIES.
All you have to do is visit all the author’s sites in this order, write down the special keywords to discover the short story, then enter the giveaway with the completed secret legend HERE.
There will be one main giveaway for the main prize, but most of the participating authors will also have smaller giveaways for free books, Amazon credit, and author swag, so make sure you read their post carefully to see what else they’re offering while you’re on their site for the keyword.

OPEN JUNE 1ST ~ JUNE 7TH

Just go through the “treasure map” above to find the keywords and reconstruct the secret legend. Once you’ve got it, enter for the grand prize HERE. Don’t forget to keep an eye out for other giveaways or free books as you search for the keywords, most authors will be offering their own prizes as well.
