It’s no secret that contemporary fiction isn’t what I gravitate towards.  That said, there is so much contemporary fiction on my TBR that I have been genuinely wanting to read, yet somehow they always get passed over when book selection time comes.  Hence my excitement to participate in this challenge.  And it will be a challenge.  I have selected to (attempt to) read 8 books from each year, for a total of 24, or in simpler terms: 2 contemporary reads a month.
