I’m really behind on book reviews.
Recently, I was scrolling through my notes app on my phone, where I type any thoughts I have while reading a story, and saw that I have notes from books I read back at the beginning of 2018. This is why I should just review books right after reading them 🤦♀️.
I’ve put off reviewing the books for one reason or another, but it’s truly just come to the point where even if I did want to review them, I can’t because 𝘐 𝘤𝘢𝘯’𝘵 𝘳𝘦𝘮𝘦𝘮𝘣𝘦𝘳 𝘦𝘯𝘰𝘶𝘨𝘩 𝘢𝘣𝘰𝘶𝘵 𝘵𝘩𝘦𝘮. Of course there are the notes I made, but many of them are incomplete and wouldn’t be enough for me to write up a thorough or even mini review.
Hence, my shoddy solution: /modified/ mini review *posts!
*There’s just too many books I never reviewed, so I have to split these up into multiple posts 😬.
Here, you can read my bullet point thoughts as they are in my notes and any quotes I saved while reading each book. In this way, I can finally share the backlog of
half-baked thoughts I have on these books, and you can… read them 😅? I’m not sure how this will benefit you all, but hopefully by reading how these books affected me, you’ll get a glimpse as to how these books may resonate with you.
It’s a shoddy solution, but it’s my shoddy solution 😤.:

I’ve attempted my own self-imposed read-a-thon before, but this was my first time trying to read as many books as I could in a set period of time with a community of people. This particular read-a-thon was unlike mine in that it had a theme—contemporary books—and optional challenges to complete within the week. The challenges were to:
- Read the most recent contemporary that you purchased/acquired
- Read a contemporary book with pink on the cover
- Read a hyped contemporary book
- Read a diverse contemporary book
- Read a dark/taboo contemporary
- Read a contemporary(ish) graphic novel
- Read a contemporary book that has been recommended to you
I knocked out three books during the contemporary-a-thon
(one of them went one day over but shhh let me have this) and accomplished four of the seven challenges. Even though it might not seem like much, I would call this read-a-thon a success; it dragged me out of my reading slump and allowed me to complete three, solid 4-star books. The books showed me how wide and diverse the contemporary genre is, and I have a new-found appreciation for it because of them. I’ll definitely be participating in more read-a-thons in the future (maybe I’ll try hosting my own?), and you all should join too!
Blah blah blah…
on to the mini reviews!
