2017 YA Reading Challenge

For those of you who saw that sorry post I put up earlier with bullet points while I struggled with this graphic program, I apologize, that was just sad. Anyways I know this is a little late, but odds are if you’ve already read a book this year, it probably fits somewhere on this list. 

Same deal as last year: 52 weeks, 52 books. Easy peasy. 

This year I really tried to be inclusive and get all sorts of contemporary issues and diversity in here. I want you to branch out as readers, to learn new cultures, to keep up on real issues-even if they’re fictionalized. Reading is a wonderful educational process. So here it is, I hope you enjoy. Explore, reach, tackle some new themes and genres. 

Tell me what you’re reading, what you’re excited about, recommend books. Help others complete this list and mostly, have fun. 

Side note: This can fit in all age ranges. It’s not ONLY for YA. Apply it as you will. 

2017

As always, happy reading!

From NYT & USA Today Bestselling Author A.L. Jackson comes the next sexy, gripping Bleeding Stars Stand-Alone Novel…

I’m Ash Evans.
The life of the party.
Hot. Rich. Charismatic.
A tattooed rock star with the world at my feet.
I burn through women faster than the strike of a match.

I’ve embraced my lifestyle and live it to the fullest.
Until the day my lifestyle caught up to me.

Willow Langston found me at my lowest.
Literally.
Facedown in a puddle of my own blood.

I owe her my life and I have three months to repay that debt.
What I never should have done was touch her. Kiss her. Take her to my bed.

Love wasn’t supposed to be a part of the equation.
I gave up that nasty complication a long damned time ago.
Now I want her more than my next breath.
But she doesn’t know what I know.

Do I leave to protect her? Or can I face my demons and ask her to Stay?

My fingertips tapped along the tattoo she had etched below her collarbone, always before hidden by her clothes.

It was a dandelion. An exact replica of the logo hanging on the sign over her store.

She trembled, her voice abraded with something brutally sad. “My mama…she loved them. She believed they guided the paths of our dreams. We just had to have the courage to chase them.”

She gazed up at me. “Maybe they’re just out there waiting for us to find them.”

I touched her trusting face. “Yours are, darlin’. They’re out there, waiting for you to catch up to them. Think you’re closer. You just have to step up and let it go.”
