Hey readers! I was debating whether I should make a February 2020 TBR or if I should just do a Contemporary-a-thon round 6 TBR because I have another readathon that I really want to participate in, but it has a lot of prompts and many detailed information that would have just made the blog post super long. I hope you all will be okay with me making two separate blog posts on the two readathons I want to join in on! Let’s jump right in!
Saturday 2/15 at 6pm PST / 9pm EST on Julie’s channel
1. read a contemporary book with green on the cover
2. read a contemporary from a new to you author
3. read a diverse contemporary (keeping in mind that it is Black History Month!)
4. read a backlist contemporary (something that has been on your TBR for over a year)
5. read a dark/hard hitting contemporary
6. read a contemporary with an illustrated cover
7. read a contemporary that is beloved by a member of the book community (and shout out the creator!)
Read a contemporary book with green on the cover. I’ve been wanting to read this book for so freaking long y’all. It’s not even funny!
Read a contemporary from a new to you author. I can’t believe I haven’t read this yet! Everyone has talked so much about it! I can’t wait to finally get to it.
Read a diverse contemporary (keeping in mind that it is Black History Month!) I really wanted to read a book by an aoc or a coc for this prompt and luckily, On the Come Up features both!
Read a backlist contemporary (something that has been on your TBR for over a year). This book is so old and I’m honestly kind of nervous to read this because I’ve tried to before, but it’s finally time to actually read it. I don’t think it’s a favorite in the YA community but we’ll give it another shot!
Read a dark/hard hitting contemporary. Don’t roll your eyes at this (I can feel you rolling them now!) I’ve been wanting to re-read these books because I just re-watched Fifty Shades Darker so… here we are!
Read a contemporary with an illustrated cover. This book isn’t overly illustrated, but it’s illustrated nonetheless. This is a book of poetry, which should be quick to get through for me!
Read a contemporary that is beloved by a member of the book community (and shout out the creator!) There were many books I could have chosen for this prompt, but I went with We Are the Ants because a lovely friend of mine, Luvlii Books, loved this book so much, she got the symbol on the cover tattooed on her! If that isn’t love, I don’t know what is! Also, DylanIsReviewing really love this book as well! He’s recommended it quite a bit on his channel and I’m finally going to get to it!
That was it for my contemporary-a-thon TBR! I know it’s super ambitious and I honestly don’t know if I can do it, especially because I’ll be on vacation, but I’ll definitely try my best!
