Contemporaryathon Round 4 TBR!

Hey guys! Contemporaryathon is back for it’s forth round! The topic for this readathon is really self-explanatory, you just have to read Contemporary books! I love reading contemporary, especially when I’m struggling with what to read next, or need a break from fantasy/science fiction series, or just need some fluffy, light-heartedness in my life!

 

It will be taking place from 11th – 17th February 2019 and has a total of 7 reading challenges, you are more than welcome to double/triple up on challenges! There will also be a live-show hang-out on Chelsea’s channel on 16th February at 6pm PST / 9pm EST (I am in the UK, so it’ll be 2am so unfortunately I won’t be able to join). It is hosted by the same lovely girls; Julie from Pages and Pens, Natasha from myreadingisodd, and Chelsea from Chelseadollingreads, and is introducing a new host Mel from Meltotheany. There are Booktube video challenges to post your TBR (on Chelsea’s announcement), Daily Vlog playlist (on Natasha’s announcement), and your wrap-up video (on Julie’s announcement) There will be photo challenges on their Instagram page as well! See below for all the challenges…

 

~~THE CHALLENGES~~
1. Read the most recent contemporary book you purchased/acquired
2. Read book with blurple (blue or purple lol) on the cover
3. Read a diverse contemporary (keeping in mind that it is Black History Month!)
4. Read a dark/emotional/hard-hitting contemporary
5. Read a contemporary that you meant to read in 2018 but didn’t
6. Read a contemporary in a non-traditional format
7. Read a contemporary with some sort of picture on the spine

 

And here are the books I’m hoping to read to fulfil those challenges!
