I recently came across a video announcing the contemporary-a-thon and I immediately knew I wanted to participate. I am a huge contemporary fan, and this is a great way to get some more reading in. I will probably only get through 2, maybe 3 books but I want to try anyways.
1. Read the most recent contemporary that you purchased/acquired
2. Read a contemporary book with pink on the cover
3. Read a hyped contemporary book
4. Read a diverse contemporary book
5. Read a dark/taboo contemporary
6. Read a contemporary(ish) graphic novel
7. Read a contemporary book that has been recommended to you
True Believer- Nicholas Sparks (1&2)
I just purchased this about a week or two ago when I went to Barnes and Noble with my friend. We both picked up Nicholas Sparks books because neither of us have read any before. The cover of this one is more of a purple-ish color, but it is the closest to pink I have so I am counting it!
This Adventure Ends- Henry Holt (3)
I have heard nothing but great things about this book, so I am excited to finally get around to reading it. It was pretty hyped on Goodreads and Twitter, so I have high expectations going into it.
Also can we talk about the beautiful cover
My Heart and other Black Holes (4)
I believe this book deals with depression and anxiety, making it a diverse read. I am prepared for heartache because this does deal with some heavy topics. I accidentally read a spoiler for this book, so I know it will make me cry.
Trigger Warning: Suicide
The Summer I turned Pretty- Jenny Han (7)
This book was recommended to me such a long time ago but I only recently acquired it. I am so excited to read it because I love Jenny Han’s writing. I really hope I love it as much as I loved the To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before trilogy.
I know my TBR is pretty short, but with school everyday, I don’t have as much time to read as I would like. These books satisfy 5/7 of the challenges, so to me, that would be a success.
Let me know if you are participating down in the comments below! I would love to hear what books you have on your TBR for this read-a-thon.
