YA Summer Reads Bingo – 2017

I really wanted to do a summer reads bingo, but couldn’t find any recent YA ones – so I decided to make my own! I hope you guys enjoy it and are inspired to take part!


  • Please be sure to tag me if you decide to do it so that I can see your wonderful posts or Instagrams! (If you tag me here, be sure to do a pingback to this post so that I receive the notification. My insta handle is @kyeralynn and my Twitter is @kyera if you guys post on there!)
  • If you wouldn’t mind tagging other people for it as well, I would be honoured if this spread and more people decided to partake in the bingo.

I decided to dedicate this post to the books that I think I will be applying to each category and we’ll see at the end of the summer if I’ve gotten a bingo, the corners, or even filled the card! Being a mood reader, I expect that I will probably end up reading different books that I initially speculate. Let me know if you have any recommendations for any of the squares, I would love to hear from you guys! Even though summer is technically mid-June to mid-September, I will be counting any books I read from June to August.

    So, I’ve never participated in a Bingo before, Kyera, but it seems like a lot of fun, and yours looks super cool. Is…is it really as easy as just checking off squares with books? And do I just make a post saying I’m participating in Kyera’s super epic bingo? XD BUT I AM IN.

      Yes, please participate! I’m going to let you in on a secret, I have no idea either.. 😎 but that’s my plan! When I get home I think I’m going to post each square I complete on Instagram. Since you can do multiple photos, I’ll do the bookstagram shot and then the second will be the relevant square marked as complete, adding more marks each post. I figured I’d do an update post on my blog at the end of the summer to see how I did. I’m so glad you’re in though!!!

        Okay. Cool. I’ll wing it then and see how it goes. XD I’m just like, I just want to bingo. And I can use books that I read in June, right? But I really like that idea, Kyera. It sounds so cool. :O I AM EXCITED. I’ll post something about it either Sunday or Monday, though, so I can show off your pretty bingo board. 😀
