I'm a host but I thought I would still reply :)

My name is Dylan and I'm 17 years old from Indiana, USA.

I'm really excited about this bookclub because contemporary is my favorite genre. I've always had trouble reading fantasy so contemporary is the genre I've always turned to.

My favorite contemporary's are, Wonder, The Fault in Our Stars, Every Last word, Burned, Slammed, Point of Retreat, November 9 and Looking For Alaska.

Please feel free to add me as a friend on here as well as following me on my other social medias.

Jordan (literarypolitic) Hey guys! I'm Jordan, I'm 16 years old and I'm from Texas, USA. I typically read outside the contemporary genre, but Dylan's enthusiasm for it convinced me to join the group. Some of my favorite contemporaries are Anna and the French Kiss, Saving June, The Perks of Being a Wallflower, and the short story anthology, Geektastic. I'm The_Big_Book_Theory pretty much everywhere.

mich (michellaw) Hi everyone! Um, it took me a while for me to decide to join this group because I'm so shy and I'm not that 'bookish'. I mean I really love reading and talking about books but I don't do bookstagram or book blog and I'm not really sure I can participate much bcs I'm currently occupied with classics (for college). I do write reviews here in Goodreads.
I think this group would be a really good place for me to know more information about contemporary and have more friends.

My name's Michella, I'm 20, I live in Indonesia, and I'm in college majoring in English Literature. My favorite contemporaries are I'll Give You the Sun, Love Rosie, Anna and the French Kiss series, Morgan Matson's books and Sarah Dessen's.

I write things, mostly poems or anything that comes to mind in my Tumblr and you probably want to check out my Instagram (not bookish).

Katia (crazycurly24) | 1 comments Hello I'm Katia
I'm 25, and I live in canada
I dont have any channels, websites or social medias accounts at the moment but to some eventually :)
My personal favorite contemporary books are 13 reasons why, the duff and pretty much anything by Sarra Manning
I dont read many contemporaries so I'm really excited to start discovering more about those and be able to discuss them


message 10: by Alexander (new)

Alexander Kramer (lookingforalex) | 1 comments Hi, everyone! I'm Brittany, but you can call me Britt for short.
I'm 20 and I live in the good ole state of Pennsylvania. I don't know how much I'll be able to participate in this group because some months are just super busy but I'll try my best!
I have a BookTube and it's LookingForBritt
I primarily read Young Adult books but sometimes I pick up some adult books. I recently finished the whole Odd Thomas series by Dean Koontz and am still recovering from the last book! (:
I can't pick a favorite contemporary book, really. I read too many books to be able to pick a favorite of them (except to kill a mockingbird but that's not a contemporary!). Thanks for inviting me to the group, Tris!


message 11: by Jenny (new)

Jenny (cityofbooksx) | 1 comments Hi guys! I'm Jennypher but most people just call me Jen. I'm 18 years old and live in New Jersey. I'm really excited about this club since I promised myself to start reading more contemporaries this year since I usually read fantasy books more. I used to read a bunch of contemporary books when I was in middle school but haven't read much since then so I don't particularly have a favorite book. I'm super excited to start discovering more contemporary books to read.

Here are some of my bookish links :)

message 13: by Annie (new)

Annie (anniejosephine) Hi everyone!
I'm Annie and 16 years old (I know my profile says otherwise that's just because of underage privacy reasons etc).
I'm from the UK and I usually read contemporary, fantasy or romance novels.

My favourite contemporaries are: To all the boys I've loved before, Ugly Love, Confess, Wonder, Me before You and The fault in our stars.


message 14: by Annie (new)

Annie (anniejosephine) And thanks to Dylan for inviting me!


message 15: by Karen (new)

Karen Kramer (karenskramer) Hey everyone!
I'm Karen, 20 years old, from northern Idaho, USA. I read a pretty wide variety of genres with contemporary being my second favorite (after physiological thrillers) Just finished Ugly Love by Colleen Hoover and adored it so I was super stoked to see the August BOTM is "It Ends With Us". Other contemporary favorites of mine include We Were Liars, The Fault in out Stars, Love Rosie and The Summer I Turned Pretty series.

I don't run a book blog, unfortunately but I do occasional book reviews here on Goodreads. I'm trying to be more diligent about writing regular reviews and becoming more a part of the reading community.

Aliya (aquamarine06) | 2 comments Hello peeps, I'm Aliya and I'm from Kansas City. I'm a booktuber who loves YA and I think that contemporary is a sometimes crazy but underrated genre. Plus I can relate to contemporary since I'm a high schooler with a life. Some of my favorites are Anna and the French Kiss, Ditched, The Fault in Our Stars, and Eleanor and Park. Nice to meet you all! :)

message 23: by Sharla (new)

Sharla | 2 comments My name is Sharla. I live in Melbourne,Australia and I'm obsessed with books. As a young kid I was great at reading and enjoyed reading and over a couple of year particularly in year six and seven I completely lost interest and stopped reading. I made a pact that if I started reading I could start getting back into the swing and I chose a book in my bookcase and I finished it in one day. Ever since then which has been about two and a half years I read up to two hours everyday.

I normally read YA because I can relate to it the most. Some of my favourites include If I Stay, We Were Liars and All The Bright Places. I have entered this group in the hope of being introduced to a new genre of reading and hoping to make some good reading buddies that understand the urge to read. I am planning on starting a YouTube channel based on books in one or two years but for now I use social media as a non book related platform
