Challenge: Scavenger Hunt
Find books that fit into the categories below. Take pictures, share them from Instagram, find them online – either way, show off the books! I decided to do a scavenger hunt through my Instagram page, since I’m completing this one at work without access to my books. Here goes…

CR: Nantucket Blue by Leila Howland
This book has been on my TBR for a very, very long time. I started reading it yesterday as my first read for Bout of Books! It’s actually my Book Buddies read for August and it fits perfectly in with my summery TBR for this challenge. I wanted to make sure I made an effort to read and finish this one with plenty of times for the BB review happening at the end of the month. I have a tendency to leave that for the last minute, which I hate (but still manage to do every month).
F: Keeping the Moon by Sarah Dessen
I started this one last week in the spirit of my Dessen reread this year. I had been reading the ebook a little bit on and off whenever I’m in the mood too, thanks to the library’s Overdrive collection! I just found out they have most of her books on there and there aren’t any holds. Regardless, I enjoyed this one a lot. I’m glad it’s very summery and takes place right in Colby, my favorite fictional beach. It went by pretty quick and I just finished this afternoon.
The Bout of Books read-a-thon is organized by Amanda @ On a Book Bender and Kelly @ Reading the Paranormal. It is a week long read-a-thon that begins 12:01am Monday, August 17th and runs through Sunday, August 23rd in whatever time zone you are in. Bout of Books is low-pressure. There are challenges, giveaways, and a grand prize, but all of these are completely optional. For all Bout of Books 14 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. – From the Bout of Books team

That’s funny, I just noticed on Overdrive that my library has all of the Sarah Dessen books as well. So awesome!! Summer is definitely Dessen Season, in my opinion. I read Keeping the Moon for the first time last month and really enjoyed it. I’ve only read 3 Dessen books, so I really need to get on that. Love the Challenge picks!! Contemporary is my fave genre too. 🙂
Yesss keep going with SD! She’s so good.
I love your creative take on the bookish scavenger hunt, Lauren! Your choices are spot on and I love that you were able to find all the photos on your Instagram 🙂 Also, yay for Sarah Dessen and for Nantucket Blue!
