Contemporary-A-Thon 2018…or, Taylor tries to read 7 books in 7 days!

Happy Sunday, book nerds! 

I hope you all have had a wonderful weekend! Although I haven’t devoted much time to reading/blogging over the past two days, I did keep myself pretty busy. Screen Shot 2018-09-16 at 2.26.07 PMOn Friday I went to dinner with my hubby to celebrate his first week of school and spent the rest of the evening watching episodes of Murder House to catch him up to Apocalypse. On Saturday we spent the first half of the day devoted to chores (walking the dog, mowing the lawn, laundry, etc) and then spent the evening exploring Grapefest with my parents. We bought silly paintings of our dogs, ate some delicious Mexican food, and closed the evening with a Don Felder-led Eagles-esque concert. Today’s devoted to football, recovery, and prepping for Contemporary-a-thon 2018


Hosted by the lovely Pages and PensChelseadolling reads, and Myreadingisodd this readathon seems right up my alley! Consisting of seven challenges (see below) Contemporary-a-thon officially starts TOMORROW (Monday Sept. 17) and runs through Sunday (Sept. 23). And while several of my selections would fit multiple challenges, I’m going to do my best to actually read #SevenBooksInSevenDays! Wish me luck and check out my selections below!
