I used to read a lot of contemporary books especially when I first joined bookcrossing and wanted to try every genre! In recent years I have concentrated more on urban fantasy, dystopia and horror as these are my favourite books. However when I visit blogs I see all these books and authors I don't know and I thought it might be nice to go and try a few, taking a look at the new contemporary authors out there. Who knows, I might find a few I enjoy and sometimes a change can be nice!
Last night I decided it was finally time to get a few of them read to see what I think so this is the start of Contemporary Week at The Book Cave. The plan is to read as many as I can until I get fed up with them or the week finishes!
Based on the ten books I looked at last night, it was NOT a good experiment! I didn't like any of them, mainly due to the story being too slow or not liking the characters. I still have a pile to read as I grabbed quite a few in charity shops and sales so maybe I'll find some good ones later.
If not, well my tbr will lose a few books so it's pretty much a win-win!
