Wrap-Up to Contemps Challenge!

I have completed the original Contemps Challenge: 18 contemporary books covering a variety of topics and I just wanted to share my opinions again. I have divided the books into 4 categories, from favorite to least.

Sean Griswold's Head by Lindsey Leavitt-hands down favorite out of all the contemps. I was totally surprised by how much I loved this book and I cannot recommend it enough to you.

Rival by Sara Bennett Wealer
The Mockingbirds by Daisy Whitney
The Duff by Kody Keplinger
Back When You Were Easier to Love by Emily Wing Smith
Want to Go Private by Sarah Darer Littman

Girl, Stolen by April Henry
Freefall by Mindi Scott
Fixing Delilah by Sarah Ockler
Fall For Anything by Courtney Summers
Family by Micol Ostow
Between Here and Forever by Elizabeth Scott
The Day Before by Lisa Schroeder

Not entirely to my taste but that is not to say that you wouldn't like them:
Losing Faith by Denise Jaden
Like Mandarin by Kirsten Hubbard
Small Town Sinners by Melissa Walker
Trapped by Michael Northrop
Sharks and Boys by Kristen Tracy
Pearl by Jo Knowles

What about you? Were you participating in the Contemps Challenge? Have you read any of these books? Do you have a favorite?


  1. CONGRATULATIONS, B!! *blows celebratory horn*

    18 contemporary books? That's a lot! I'm more of a paranormal fan, but I LOVE my fair share of contemps too and I wish I'd participated (although I probably never would have gotten very far LOL!)!

    It looks like you had a ton of fun with this challenge! Congrats again! :)

  2. The only one of those that I've read was Sean Griswald's Head. I agree it was a great book!
