Contemporary Books seeks to distinguish great pieces of literature found in today’s bookstores and online retailers. We love a good book that has a ton of heart, tackles important social issues, and characters who awe us with their sense of bravery.
We take our literature seriously and prefer to read books written by authors who are serious about the craft too. Whether you are a self-published or a traditionally published author, it makes no difference–a good book is a good book and that’s what we’re looking for.
