Schoolz out 4 Summer, Bookwyrms! Time to let out my inner 13-year-old and rejoice in the next 90 days of freedom (from the long grip of winter, anyway).
It’s time for street food, outdoor markets, wild mermaiding, skateboard marathons, and…the most epically rebellious summer reading list ever! Prepare to be delightfully scandalized by the third-wave feminist, myth-defying, proudly non-academic, radical DIY neo-90s of it all!
I may or may not count this toward my local library’s actual Summer Reading Program.
Anyhoo, because I had so much fun with it last time, I’m going to give y’all another Google Translate preview of my potential upcoming posts (see the original Lost In Translation rules here). This time, each translation will correspond with a different book.
And because I’m a merciful mischief-maker, I’ll even give you a visual hint of the answers! (though parts of the image may or may not be red herrings because 😈 ).

As always, feel free to share your guesses in the Comments! And tell me about your summer reading plans! Do you have an official list, a few looking-forward-to titles, or are you totally playing it by ear (eye? mind)? What’s the most subversive/rebellious thing you read when you were a teen?
