The YA Buccaneers started our Summer Reading Challenge on Monday. I'm joining in, and you should too! The goal is to cross off as many of the 15 prompts as you can (see image below) by the end of August. It's a great way to encourage yourself to read this summer and to push yourself out of your reading comfort zone.
You can check in on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, your blog, or not at all. If you do check in online, then use the #YABSummerReads hashtag when you share it. (That helps us find your posts!) Those who check in on Fridays on the YA Buccaneers blog will be entered into the monthly giveaway, and each month one reader will win a $10 Amazon gift card. Awesome, right?

I loved this book. It's about two best friends, Justin and Landry, who go on a road trip the summer after they graduate from college to spread Justin's dad's ashes. Along the way, their relationship changes into something different, and they have to figure out if it means the end, or a new beginning.
I cried, I swooned, I learned a few things, and I just really, truly enjoyed Justin and Landry's story. It was the first M/M romance I've read (it's adult, not YA), and I couldn't be more impressed. I now have the urge to read everything Megan has written. Ever.
Now it's your turn: Will you be joining Summer Reading Challenge? I hope so!
