Happy Monday everyone! And also happy #ARCstravaganza day! This week I’ll be featuring a book that’s a little different from what I normally read and feature. This book is a new adult book! The new adult genre is one that has been very hit and miss for me, so, I’m always looking for great NA titles. This particular book was recommended to me a number of times, though, so I have very high hopes! Aaaaand I’ll actually be starting to read it right after this post goes live! I also wanted to let you all know that I have opted for adding a link-up at the bottom of each #ARCstravaganza post that I make, where you can post links to your #ARCstravaganza blog, Insta, and Twitter posts for the week! I will provide an example Instagram post in the form as a guide.
– About the Meme –
For those of you coming across this meme for this first time, it was originally created by Krysti at YA and Wine, and hosted by her, and Sarah at The Clever Reader. Due to personal circumstances, however, they have had to let it go. We were all very sad to see the meme go, but then Krysti asked me if I wanted to take it over, and I said yes!
For those of you unfamiliar with #ARCstravaganza, it’s a meme meant to encourage book bloggers to show off and discuss their ARCs (advanced reader copies)! If this sounds like something for you, please check out the info page about the meme here. Another change is that #ARCstravaganza participants can share their posts on their blogs, Instagram, or Twitter (or all three)! Please just be sure to tag your social media posts with the hashtag, or share a link to your blog post on my blog post for each week, so that we can find it!

– About the Book –
Title: Summer Skin
Author: Kirsty Eagar
Genre: NA, YA, Contemporary, Romance
Publisher: Feiwel & Friends (Macmillan)
Published: May 29, 2018
Source: Raincoast Books
Jess Gordon is out for revenge. Last year the jocks from Knights College tried to shame her best friend. This year she and a hand-picked college girl gang are going to get even.
The lesson: Don’t mess with Unity College girls.
The target: Blondie, a typical Knights stud, arrogant, cold . . . and smart enough to keep up with Jess.
A neo-riot grrl with a penchant for fanning the flames meets a rugby-playing sexist pig–sworn enemies or two people who happen to find each other when they’re at their most vulnerable?
It’s all Girl meets Boy, Girl steals from Boy, seduces Boy, ties Boy to a chair, and burns Boy’s stuff. Just your typical love story.
Kirsty Eagar expertly handles a searingly honest and achingly funny story about love and sex amid the college hookup culture.
