Week two is almost in the bag for Bookending Summer folks! I am having an absolute ball of a time getting to meet you all and make new friends over on your posts and on our twitter page (@bookend_events if you haven’t followed, you totally should!)!

Without further ado! Let’s waddle into today’s prompt!
Down and Across
Pick a summer-themed word (ex: beach, fireworks, heatwave, barbecue, vacation) or the title of a book with summer vibes. Write it vertically, then try to fill in titles that start with each letter (you can omit determiners like “the” and “a”).
For example, if your first book is Radiance, then you might have [The] Raven Boys, Anna Undreaming, Darius the Great Is Not Okay, and so on. Difficult mode: Use only books that fit a theme, such as “three-word titles” or “YA contemporary” or “squad goals.”
For this challenge, I think I am going to challenge myself with the word Popsicle and because I hate myself I am go into difficult mode and use only “romantic comedies”. Because wow, a time.

C | Can’t Text This by Teagan Hunter

E | Engaged To The EMT by Piper Rayne
The ‘i’ and the ‘o’ were surprisingly the bane of my existence and I asked myself multiple times why I chose this word out of all the summer-ish words in the dictionary. However, even though I struggled–I CAME OUT VICTORIOUS!!!
What books would you have used instead? Let me know!
