Each week, The Broke and Bookish host a Top Ten Tuesday based on a certain bookish topic. Other bloggers are able to participate and post their own top ten list based on the topic.
This week’s Top Ten Tuesday topic is a Ten Books For Readers Who Like Contemporary. I usually, okay, more than usually don’t like reading contemporary, so if you find me recommending you to read contemporary books, they must be reallyyyy good!
So here’s my list in no particular order:
1. Going Too Far by Jennifer Echols: I read Going Too Far before I started blogging and I am wayy overdue for a reread. I remember Going Too Far giving me such a rush when I first read it and I hope it will still give me that same feeling once again when I finally reread it.
2. Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins: I am desperately in love with this book. I don’t see how anyone will not enjoy Anna and the French Kiss (okay, okay, I understand how you could not, but still). If you want to fall desperately in love with a book, I strongly recommend you to check out Anna and the French Kiss. Just remember, I have my dibs on St. Clair.
4. The Start of Me and You by Emery Lord: THIS BOOK. If you’re iffy about contemporary like I am, I strongly recommend you to read it anyway. The Start of Me and You will definitely win you over, trust me. You can always thank me later. ;D
5. Since You’ve Been Gone by Morgan Matson: I’ve said this many times by now, but I’ll say it again, Since You’ve Been Gone is my favorite book of 2014. In fact, it is probably my favorite book of all-time. I just connected with Emily from Since You’ve Been Gone in so many ways. Don’t get me started on how perfect Frank Porter also is. If only he this was a well-ordered universe and he was real…
6. Pushing the Limits by Katie McGarry: Have you ever met a book where it makes you cry at the exact same part every time you read it? Well, that’s Pushing the Limits for me. If you feel like crying and having all your feels attacked, definitely read Pushing the Limits.
8. My Life Next Door by Huntley Fitzpatrick: Guys. This book. (This is probably the second time I’ve used this phrase?) My Life Next Door had me questioning life and sighing with love all at the same time. a href=”https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/12294652-my-life-next-door?ac=1″>My Life Next Door is the perfect book for a beginner contemporary reader.
9. Stolen by Lucy Christopher: Stolen is one of the most memorable books I’ve ever read to date. The ending just KILLED me and made me reevaluate everything I ever knew. You’ll have to read Stolen to understand what I mean.
10. Rites of Passage by Joy N. Hensley: Rites of Passage is a darker contemporary than most. It kept attacking the main character and I in terms of feels and just, that ending! I really hope Rites of Passage will have a sequel, but as of now, I’m thinking that it’s sadly not likely.
And now, I want to know, what books will you recommend in the contemporary genre?
