Top Ten Books I Want To Read From the Contemporary YA Genre


Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. Each week they will post a new Top Ten list that one of the bloggers there at The Broke and the Bookish will answer. Everyone is welcome to join!

Today’s Top Ten Tuesday post asks us to list ten books that we either want to read or can’t believe we haven’t read in a particular genre. I tend to gravitate towards fantasy books, so decided to go a different route with this week’s list. So, here are the Top Ten Books I Want to Read from the Contemporary YA Genre. Some of these definitely qualify as “staples” of the genre, and ALL of them are books I own, so I figure at some point I’ll eventually get to them, right?

    A brilliant contemporary list. I have read many of these books and I’m happy to say that I really enjoyed the ones I have read. I’m yet to read Meant To Be, Everything Leads To You and Bittersweet, but I do have a copy of them all. I hope you enjoy these books when you do get to them!

  2. thebigfatf says:

    Anna and the French Kiss needs to be at the top of that list. It’s great and light and the love interest is HOT. Not just average YA hot but his hotness levels is the creme de la creme

  3. christine says:

    I’ve added To all The Boys I’ve loved before to my TTT before but I still haven’t read it. You have an awesome list by the way.

    My Top Ten Tuesday!

  4. Omg I literally need to read most of this list! Especially Anna and The French Kiss and Aristotle and Dante!

    There’s a lot of great books on your list, but I think my favorite would be “This Song will Save Your Life”. You can’t go wrong with Jenny Han or Stephanie Perkins either:)

  6. Quinn @ Quinn's Book Nook says:

    I’ve read three of these – My Life Next Door, Anna and the French Kiss and Meant to Be. I liked them all, but Anna and the French Kiss is my favorite of those three.

    I’ve heard just amazing things about Everything Leads to You, and I definitely want to read that one soon. And Speechless! Another one that I’ve heard wonderful things about. I even have an ebook. I should really just make time for them.

  7. I haven’t read Anna and the French Kiss either! It looks amazing though- great list! Here is TTT

    Anna and the French Kiss is such a nice read. Especially if you have been or would love to go to Paris :D

    Great list. I have most of these already added to my huge TBR list.
