I’m back again with, yet another, TBR. This one is for the Contemporaryathon which runs from November 13 – November 18th and is run by Chelsea at Chelsea Dolling Reads and Julie at Pages and Pens on YouTube (I have linked their TBR videos). This a readathon that’s dedicated to reading contemporary books. Here are the challenges and this is what I plan to read:
Most recent contemporary bought/acquired: Pride and Prejudice and Mistletoe by Melissa de la Cruz. I got this from Netgalley and the publisher. I believe this is a modern day pride and prejudice retelling with Christmas elements. Pride and Prejudice is one of my favorite books, so I can’t wait to read this re-telling. This book came out on October 17, 2017 so I should probably read it soon.
Contemporary with LGBTQIA+ characters : Little & Lion by Brandy Colbert. This is a story with not only LGBTQ characters but also deals with mental health.
A contemporary over 5 years old: The Uncoupling by Meg Wolitzer. I have been wanting to read Meg Wolitzer and this was a perfect opportunity to finally pick up this book.
A contemporary not set in Summer: Kiss Me in New York by Catherine Rider. This another Netgalley e-arc that I received and have been saving until this time of year. I’m assuming because of the cover that this is not set in summer.
The last two prompts are:
A dark or taboo contemporary and Buddy read a book. I could not come up with anything for this and my TBR for this month is already massive, so I’m just gonna skip these.
