What is the project?
This is a project in which both bloggers and authors will be gushing over their favorite contemporaries, contemporary authors, covers, quotes, new releases, and more! All posts will be focused around contemporary books since this is the focus of the project.
When is this project taking place?
The first post will be up on September 8th which is a Tuesday. I had 18 volunteers before I had to close submissions so I will be posting two posts every week until November 8th! They will go up on the Tuesday and Sunday of each week unless they must be moved for a week for a specific reason.
Who is participating?
I have 15 bloggers and 3 authors who are participating. For now, I will link their name to their blog/website and their Twitter link.

As you can see, I have a great group of contemporary lovers here! Since I am running this whole project, I thought I would list five of my favorite contemporary titles as a kick start to this celebration!
Some of my favorite contemporaries:
Everything Leads To You by Nina LaCour
Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe by Benjamin Alire Sáenz
Faking Normal by Courtney C. Stevens
Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli
Things We Know by Heart by Jessi Kirby
These are all wonderful contemporary reads and I definitely would recommend them!
I hope you guys are excited for this new project! I think it's great to be celebrating such an important genre. Let me know what your favorite contemporaries are!
