Favorite YA Contemporary Books (Top Ten Tuesday #3)

Book with Heart

This week’s topic was a little open ended. We could write about our top 10 favorites within a specific genre. I picked YA contemporary books as because I often struggle with this genre. These books can be too character driven or centered only around a romantic plot, which isn’t enough to hold my interest.

Here are 10 YA Contemporary books that I love.

YA Contemporary: Emmy & Oliver, Everything Everything, Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda, Wanderlove, The Fault in Our Stars

Emmy & Oliver by Robin Benway

Everything Everything by Nicola Yoon

Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli

Wanderlove by Kristen Hubbard

The Fault in Our Stars by John Green

YA Contemporary: Since You've Been Gone, Second Chance Summer, Every Last Word, The Start of Me and You, Fangirl

Since You’ve Been Gone by Morgan Matson

    1. Thanks! I just read Afterward by Jennifer Mathieu this week, and it reminded me of Emmy & Oliver. I really need to re-read that book. It was so cute! Fangirl will forever be one of my favorites. I just relate SO much to that story – and to Cath.

    1. Yes, it is! I have the new book, but I haven’t read it yet. I have so many ARCs from BEA, and I’m trying to read them in release order. Also, I’m a little nervous that I won’t love it as much as her first. Do you ever feel that apprehension and put off reading books you really are dying to read for fear that they won’t live up to your expectations?

    1. I really need to re-read Since You’ve Been Gone. It’s been a while. I just started listening to Amy & Roger’s Epic Detour yesterday. I love Morgan Matson so much! ๐Ÿ™‚
