Contemporaryathon TBR

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:

Pride and Prejudice and Mistletoe

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.

Adult ContemporaryLittle Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng. This is a very hyped book and I just have to read it after enjoying her first novel Everything I Never Told You. 

Contemporary with LGBTQIA+ charactersLittle & 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.

Kiss Me in New York

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.
