Top Ten Tuesday: Contemporary Young Adult Fiction

20120312-231859.jpg
Happy Tuesday! Top Ten Tuesday is meme hosted by the wonderful Broke and Bookish!
I feel like I’m constantly talking about the same books over and over again since I am still only a toddler blogger (a little over one year) and my list of books I’ve read still isn’t huge. So, I am going to tweak this week’s theme and make it work for me. Today’s Top Ten is going to start with my top five contemporary Young Adult fiction titles. Then I’ll list five contemporary YA titles that I really want to read. Sound good? Good!

5 Contemporary YA Fiction Titles I Adore

So, with the exception of number 4 and 5, I obviously enjoy some good old fashion contemporary romance (she says as she swoons).

5 Contemporary YA Fiction Titles I Want to Adore but Haven’t Read Yet

These are books that I have heard other readers say amazing things about, but I have not yet had the opportunity to read. I have most of these in my possession, but just haven’t found the time to sit down and read them yet.

  1. Contemporary is one of my favorite genres so I’m excited you chose that topic to write about. I see some familiar favorites (Anna, Lola, Statistical) but also some I’m dying to read (Catching Jordan and Fine Art). The Boyfriend List looks really cute, and I have the audio of 13 Reasons Why waiting to listen to.
    Thanks for sharing!

  2. I hated In Too Deep. It was one of the first books where I truly hated the protagonist. And it was first person, at that!

    I did a contemporary list, also, and 13 Reasons Why made it to mine.

    • I totally understand how you feel about the main character! The reaso I liked it dbc of what happens in the end and I saw change in her. :) thanks for stopping by and commenting!

  3. I feel like I tend to gravitate to other genres – fantasy, dystopia, paranormal – but whenever I read something that falls into the contemporary category I’m always shocked at how much I love it. And I don’t know why I keep getting shocked because they’re always SO good! I love several of these and want to read even more! Great list and hope you get to those you haven’t read yet soon!

  4. i suggest you fast track Lola and the Boy Next Door. It’s so good. If you’re a fan of Anna’s then i’m sure you’ll love Lola’s story too. i think i might actually like Lola’s story more. Although it’s kinda like picking a favorite between your two children. ;)
    Great list, btw.
