Popular Contemporary Books I Haven't Read
It's no secret that, in general, contemporary is my go-to genre. Because of this, I'm going the easy route and living in "safety" with this week's Top Ten Tuesday topic. Most of the books I am using are of the YA persuasion because, well, have several unread on my shelf and I really do want to read more of them because sometimes it's nice to read nothing more than a lighthearted, sweet book. Most of the time, this genre provides that. Here's what the Broke and Bookish ladies asked us:
Top Ten Books I Can't Believe I Haven't/Want To Read From [Contemporary] Genre
(for example I feel like I'm pretty well read in contemporary YA but there are some STAPLES I can't believe I haven't read. Or if you just want to books you WANT to read in a particular genre, not necessarily long overdue)
1.) Lonestar Angel, by Colleen Coble
Read all of the other books in this series and then this fourth book came along a bit later on. Guess someday it should be a priority since I did enjoy the rest.
2.) Better off Friends, by Elizabeth Eulberg
This one looks straight up darling. Who could resist that!?
3.) To All the Boys I've Loved Before, by Jenny Han
Heard nothing but good things about Jenny's' books.
Plus have you seen the cover for the sequel!?
4.) Open Road Summer, by Emery Lord
Love, love (LOVED) Emery's upcoming March 2015 novel. Makes me ask the question: Why haven't I read her debut novel?!
5.) My Last Kiss, by Bethany Neal
Beautiful cover, intriguing storyline. Sounds like my kind of book.
6.) Isla and the Happily Ever After, by Stephanie Perkins
Books by Stephanie seem to be firmly in the "fangirl camp." Figure that's reason enough to place them on my shelf and TBR.
7.) The Secret Diary of Lizzie Benent, by Bernie Su and Kate Rorick
I am actually reading this (when I can get a few pages in) right now and let me tell you... I'm IN LOVE with the awesome-ness. Could we have 100 more of these, please!?
8.) Paper Hearts, by Courtney Walsh
Had this on my list for Christmas and my aunt just gifted it to me this past weekend. It's just as pretty in person and someone tweeted that it reminded them of Letters to Juliet. Um, yes please!
9.) Nothing but Trouble, by Susan May Warren
Given how much I enjoy Susan's stories, I haven't a clue why these are sitting on my shelf unread.
10.) On the Fence, by Kasie West
Kasie's books sound darling. 'Nuff said.
