What I am doing this week #CONTEMPORARYATHON


I’ve been willingly sucked into the world of booktubers. YouTube has been a growing obsession of mine for a few years, so it makes sense that I am drawn to book reviewers, especially those of the romance variety. Because, hello, I’m all about the love.

So, there is this challenge that I am going to attempt to participate in, Contemporary-a-thon. It’s basically reading certain books from your personal TBR pile. Contempoary-a-thon is taking place from 2/11/19 to 2/17/19. Because of my own real-world work schedule, family responsibilities, and also attempting to put the finishing touches on my current work in progress, I am going to see if I can get one title to fill multiple categories. As of now it looks like three books will fit the bill for all seven categories. Which is entirely do-able, especially since I REALLY want to read all three of these titles.

Below are the challenges and the books I hope to read to fill the requirements. I’ll follow up next week and let y’all know how it went!

And for those interested in possibly participating, here’s a link to one of the ladies heading up the challenge: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RjulhHwrnUc&t=10s
