Amanda’s ContemporaryAThon Wrap Up

Hi, lovelies! I loosely participated in this round of Contemporaryathon. I say loosely because I was (and still am) on vacation, visiting with some friends and family. So, I didn’t really plan to read every book on my TBR list, but I did want to have options. Let’s get into what I managed to read this week and what challenges I completed.

Read a 2019 release

The Liars of Mariposa Island by Jennifer Mathieu

Read a contemporary with yellow on the cover

Twice in a Blue Moon by Christina Lauren

Read a diverse contemporary (aim for something outside of your own experience)

Moonstruck Vol. 2: Some Enchanted Evening by Grace Ellis & Shae Beagle

Read a contemporary that is beloved by a member of the book community (and shout out the creator!)

A Study in Charlotte by Brittany Cavallaro

Shout Out: Rocky @ Blonde With a Book

I read about three and a half of the challenges this round (I’m not quite done with The Liars of Mariposa Island. Though I didn’t manage to read a ton, I had fun with the prompts this round. Have you managed to read books from your physical TBR like I did for this one? Let me know below!
