Book Blogger Love-a-Thon + Contemporary Conversations

This month, I'll be taking part in the Book Blogger Love-a-Thon, hosted by Alexa @ Alexa Loves Books, which takes place over two days on 21-22 February. In March, I'll be taking part in Contemporary Conversations, hosted by Kayla @ The Thousand Lives and Veronica @ Talking Bookworm.


The Book Blogger Love-a-Thon is a chance for bloggers to share their love and explore the blogging community, making some new friends along the way. It takes place over a two-day weekend, and includes an introduction post, mini challenges, Twitter chats, and a giveaway. You can sign up to the event here!

Contemporary Conversations

Contemporary Conversations takes place over the whole of March and celebrates all things contemporary. You can sign up to the event here!

The official schedule goes like this:

  • Week One (1st-7th): Coming of Age tales.
  • Week Two (8th-14th): The Hard Stuff.
  • Week Three (15th-21st): Rereads.
  • Week Four (22nd-28th): Conspiracies/Dramas.

I'm going to try to follow this schedule! I was gonna just do fluffy romances for Week Three since I don't really do rereads normally but my last Top Ten Tuesday post got me thinking that maybe I do want to reread some books after all! So in Week Three I'll be trying to do both rereads and fluffy romances that I've never read before.

I'm currently planning to review at least 2 books per week for this event. This is a tentative list of books I'd like to read (probably won't get round to all of them but I can try).

Week One: Coming of Age

  1. Not Otherwise Specified by Hannah Moskowitz (already read!)
  2. Brooklyn, Burning by Steve Brezenoff
  3. I'll Give You the Sun by Jandy Nelson
  4. We All Looked Up by Tommy Wallach (also already read!)

Week Two: The Hard Stuff

  1. Something by Courtney Summers, not sure what yet, but maybe Cracked Up to Be?
  2. Falling into Place by Amy Zhang
  3. All the Bright Places by Jennifer Niven

Week Three: Fluffy Romances/Rereads

  1. On the Fence by Kasie West
  2. The Distance Between Us by Kasie West (okay yeah two Kasie Wests... why? I won these two books in a giveaway and I just think this is the perfect chance to read them!)
  3. Sprout by Dale Peck
  4. Love is the Higher Law by David Levithan

Week Four: Conspiracies/Dramas

  1. Sleuth or Dare (i.e. Going Rogue) by Robin Benway
  2. ??? I HAVE NO IDEA. Suggestions?
I hope you guys will join me for one or both of these events! Also, if you guys have any recommendations for Week Four: Conspiracies/Dramas, please comment and let me know! :D

      AHHH I simply can't wait to get to I'll Give You the Sun!!! IT LOOKS SO GOOD. I keep just stroking the lovely hardcover.

      Oooh, you're meeting Kasie West! :D Awesome. Have fun! I really hope I like her books.

  1. I'll also be joining in with Contemporary Conversations! Just because I never read contemporary and I SHOULD because there are good books out there in that genre AND I NEVER GIVE THEM A CHANCE. I can't recommend anything to you because I know nothing, but I should also be planning my TBR for March, right? yes

      YAY YAY YAY :D :D I'm a fantasy girl at heart but I seem to read a ton of contemporary anyway. Probably because that's where all the LGBTQ books are at, usually. WHY WON'T MORE PEOPLE WRITE ME LGBTQ FANTASY BOOKS, DAMMIT.

      Plan your TBR VAL!! There are way too many books I want to read, I probably shouldn't be so ambitious as to try to read ALLLLL the contemporaries ever in one month.

      YAY. :D :D I'm super excited! I really need to find the time to write all my posts for that ahead of time and schedule them so I'll have time that weekend to visit loads of blogs!

      Oooh, you should join Contemporary Conversations if you like reading contemporary! Kayla who is one of the hosts is one of my favourite bloggers. I'm sure it'll be loads of fun!
