Contemporary-A-Thon Round 6 Reading Wrap Up

Last week was the Contemporary-a-thon round 6 was last week and I do have a vlog coming up for you to watch to see my progress but I thought I would share my wrap up with you first so you could see whether I met the reading challenges or not. 

The week basically went well on the whole until it came to the weekend and then that was just a bit of a write off for me. I went away and I didn't do any reading until the night I came back, the last night of the readathon. I had fun though and I don't mind that it meant I might have missed out on a couple of challenges because I was still having a good time and I know I will read (or have read) those books. I mean I still read 2251 pages and saw 4 movies in the cinemas this week so its been a pretty good week for entertainment! 

These were the challenges...

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!)

And this is what I read...


This meets challenges 1, 2, 6 and 7 - 352 pages


This meets challenges 4,  6 and 7 - 400 pages


This meets challenge 3 - 337 pages


I read the final 50% of this. This meets challenges 1 and 6 - 225 pages


This meets challenges 2, 3, 5 and 6 - 368 pages


This is not a contemporary but my library audio download was due back to I listening to the last 75% of this and wanted to share it with you because it was good... 320 pages


I only read 65% of this (249 pages) on Sunday night when I got back from my trip but his meets challenges 1, 3 and 6 had I read the whole thing. My review will be up very very soon. 

As I say my vlog of this week will be coming your way later on in the week and look out for reviews for all of these books. I already have a book vs movie video for PS I Still Love You on my channel so I'll leave that below for you to enjoy!
