I mentioned in my January Roundup post that I'll be participating in the 2017 #bookentine read-a-thon which is hosted by Ely & Michelle @ Tea and Titles. You can find the announcement post here so you can check what the read-a-thon is all about. And you can find the sign-up post here so we can all see each other's TBR and maybe follow each other :D
If you've been following me since my the Blacksheep Project days, you'd probably know that contemporary isn't my strongest genre (I'm a mostly dystopian, thriller, and historical reader). SO, discovering this read-a-thon felt like a great opportunity for me to stick my nose on the contemporary novels in my shelf.

2017 Bookentine TBR
The Season of You & Me | Robin Constantine (book with red and/or pink on the cover)
uhh... the type is pink. that's something, right? also, the back cover AND the spine is pink. so I guess that's counted 😏 This is a romance-centered novel (which is NOT MY USUAL READ)and it's a summer romance story. Crossing my fingers this works for me!
The Secret Language of Sisters | Luanne Rice (book by an author you haven't read before)
I bought this almost a year ago because the title said 'sisters' and I just LOVE books that involve sisters! (if you know any, recommend them to me!!). ANYWAY, from what I've read, this is a mystery-thriller novel. I'm quite critical on that genre so I hope this doesn't disappoint me 😊
Made You Up | Francesca Zappia (book featuring mental illness or disability)
If I remember correctly, Made You Up is a novel that features a character wit schizophrenia. I've read great things about this novel sooooo I'm really just so excited to get into this!! (might not be the strongest book for a read-a-thon 'cause it's 400+ pages but crossing my fingers I can at least touch this book).
HOW ABOUT YOU GUYS,
Are you joining #bookentine? What books are on your TBR? Have you read any of these books? What do you think of them? Do you think I'll love them?
