I once was a frightened reader. "Of what?" you must be asking yourself. I'll tell you. I was afraid of the daunting genre that is known for making us emotional wrecks, breaking our hearts and slowly mending them, and forcing us to face tough issues. Why yes, I'm referring to CONTEMPORARIES.
I know that there are quite a few people who still avoid this genre at all costs. It's okay people, I'm here to help you through it with a contemporary guide!
Fluffy books make us feel so happy! These books make us grin and swoon and grin some more. We root for this couple and follow the highs and lows of romance until everyone has their happily ever after.
Fluffy - Adorable. Swoon-worthy. Romantic. Heart-warming. Blissful. Gushy. LOL.
Some contemporaries are about social issues such as rape, sexuality, racism, sexism, etc. These books make us see a different way, they worm their way into our minds and really make us think. These books tend to be emotional reads but are worth it in the end.
Social Issues - Reflective. Strong emotions. Empowering. Intellectual.
Other contemporaries focus on life and other tough (self) topics like mental illness. These books tend to be emotional as well and bring wonderful themes and lessons. They make us think about life in a different way.
About Life & Hard Topics - Tearful. Inspiring. Self-reflective. Impactful.
And then there are the contemporaries that have loads of sexiness in it! They get pretty hot and heavy. Usually they're NA, and the couples have awesome dynamics and banter. These books are sometimes paired with wit and snark and lots of humor.
Sexy Times - Hot. Sexy Bits. OTPs. Great Couples. Hilarious Moments. Snark. Wit.
These are my recommendations! I hope you try one out. :)
