tbr | contemporary-a-thon round 6

Contemporary-a-thon is hosted by Chelsea, Julie and Natasha and pushes you to read contemporary novels throughout the week. It’s taking place between February 10th and February 16th, and I am very excited to take part.

Generally I don’t read things based on genre, I’m very much someone who goes with the flow, so I’m excited to finally be taking part properly in this read-a-thon! Usually I’m at University when this is taking place, it’s all very new for me actually having time to read.

Of course I’ll be attempting to follow the challenges that are set (I do love a good challenge), and I’ll be attempting to read at least three books, and five comics/manga volumes!

TBR: Challenges

1. Read a contemporary with green on the cover

~Wilder Girls by Rory Power

~My Sister the Serial Killer by Oyinkan Braithwaite

2. Read a contemporary from a new to you author

~The Devouring Gray by Christine Lynn Herman

~Everything I Know About Love by Dolly Alderton

~My Year of Rest and Relaxation by Ottessa Moshfegh

3. Read a diverse contemporary

~A Silent Voice Volume 1 by Yoshitoki Oima

~Kappa Quartet by Daryl Qilin Yam

4. Read a backlist contemporary (something that has been on your TBR for over a year)

~Giant Days Volume 11 by John Allison

~The Devouring Gray by Christine Lynn Herman

5. Read a dark/hard hitting contemporary

~Orange Volume 1 by Ichigo Takano

~Bunny by Mona Awad

~The End of Loneliness by Benedict Wells

~The House We Grew Up In by Lisa Jewell

6. Read a contemporary with an illustrated cover

~Our Dining Table by Ori Mita

~Heartstopper Volume 3 by Alice Oseman

7. Read a contemporary that is beloved by a member of the book community (and shout out the creator!)

~Fleabag: The Scriptures by Phoebe Waller-Bridge (the TV show is beloved by many members of the book community, including Chelsea, who is one of the hosts! I feel like reading the scripts counts.)

~Normal People by Sally Rooney (honestly highly praised by a lot of people I follow on book Twitter, including Barry Pierce and Jasmine from Jasmine’s Reads!)

I don’t think I’ll read all of these, but it’s my goal to read at least half of what I’ve put on here. I have a week off work, so finger’s crossed!

Thank you for reading❤
