Contemporaryathon Round 4 Wrap Up

This readathon ran from the 11th to the 17th Jaunuary and it was a great chance for me to get through all the contemporary books I have piling up on my shelves. This readathon is run mostly on Booktube.

It was a good readathon for me, I got to the two books I most wanted to get to and I started two more, as well as discovering a contemporary that made me sob in the car on the way to work. I started and finished three books and started two more so I would definitely count that as a successful readathon.

Contemporaryathon Round 4

I find this readathon so fun and I’m happy to take part in another round! And this is coming up at a perfect time when I’m feeling not too inspired by readathons at the moment. Due to this I’ve doubled up on a lot of the challenges, though I hope to read a lot more contemporary books during this week.

This readathon runs from the 11th to the 17th February. The Instagram is here.


  • Read your most recently acquired contemporary book
  • Read a book with blurple (blue/purple) on the cover
  • Read a diverse contemporary

A readathon centred all around contemporary books! While I enjoy all these new styles of readathons with maps and letters, I sometimes do like a straightforward readathon like one. This readathon runs from the 17th to the 23rd September and the related twitter is here.

  • Read a dark/spooky contemporary
  • Read a diverse contemporary
  • Read a contemporary in a non-traditional format
  • Read a contemporary that has your initials somewhere on the cover

Readathons Wrap Up

I have four readathons going at the same time and my TBR varied so wildly that I didn’t actually get that many of the challenges done for each readathon. Rather than worry about it, I decided to combine all four wrap up posts into one so I don’t have to write over and over again that I didn’t get to the challenges but I read a lot. It also means you don’t have to read it.

We’ll see how well it turns out!

This is a brand new readathon hosted on Youtube where the focus is on contemporary. It runs from the 12th February to 18th February. In this readathon, contemporary is defined as a book that is set in modern day with no sci-fi or fantasy elements. There are a couple of readathons which are going to overlap with this one so I’m going to try and use some of the same books!


  • Newly acquired contemporary
  • Contemporary book with pink on the cover
  • Read a hyped contemporary
  • Read a diverse contemporary
  • Read a dark or taboo contemporary
  • Read a contemporary graphic novel
  • Read a contemporary that was recommended to you
