August 2014: How I Spent My Summer Vacation

Do you remember writing 'How I Spent My Summer Vacation' essays in elementary school? Well, we're bringing them back, but with a YA Buccaneers spin! 

Granted, most of you probably have to work during the summer, so it's not quite the same as those fantastic three-month breaks. But! We're talking about the big OR little vacations you've taken this summer. Maybe a weekend at the beach? Or a camping trip? Or just a quiet morning with a book? Totally counts. And if you spent a week or three in the Caribbean, then we might hate you, but only for a little while. ;)

This month, look for:

  • Mission statements! Don't know what I'm talking about? Visit the blog on Monday. :)
  • A How I Spent My Summer Vacation writing prompt (you had to see that coming, right?)
  • Vacation photos! Share your favorite vacation photo on Twitter and mention @YABuccaneers and/or use the hashtag #YABSummerVacation (so we can find your pics and be jealous). The crew will be sharing our photos too!
  • Can't get away this summer? Our Summer Reading Challenge is going strong and we'd love it if you joined us! Check out the challenge here. Armchair vacations can be the besssst! We're also announcing the prize for this challenge this month - so hey, now is the perfect time to join!

As always, thank you for joining us! I'm looking forward to hearing about your summer vacation!
