CONTEMPORARY-A-THON 2018 TBR

Hey, friends! I know this post is going up a little late, but I just wanted to make sure that I put up what I plan on reading for Contemporaryathon 2018! Plus, maybe talk a little bit about some of the contemporary books that are very near and dear to my heart!ย ๐Ÿ’–

This amazing readathon is being held by a couple of people who I am so very lucky to call my friends:ย Pages and Pens,ย chelseadolling reads, &ย myreadingisodd! And all of their channels have their TBRs and some amazing contemporary recommendations that I for sure think are so very worth checking out!ย ๐Ÿ’•

There are seven challenges and even though most of my books fit into numerous challenges, I’m still going to really try to read seven books this week! So, here are the seven books that I plan on reading, that fit each of the challenges, and some recommendations that I’ve personally read, loved, and think fit the challenges, too!
