Top Ten Tuesday (75)

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature meme created by The Broke and the Bookish.

This Tuesday's theme is...

Top Ten All-Time 
Favorite Contemporaries

This week's Top Ten Tuesday was surprisingly hard. I just did NOT KNOW what genre to pick and that I had ten books for. And I wanted to do something kind of unique, but I came up with nothing. So, here are ten contemporary novels that I reallllly like. Also, these are just contemporaries (no thrillers or ghosts or anything), and mostly of the lighter, fluffier sort (this helped me narrow it down easier).

How to love this book: read it.

This is probably my favorite Sarah Dessen book, with its number one competition being...

I just love Sarah Dessen books (and this is the first one I read).


It's all fun and games until YOU CAN'T STOP CRYING.


The cuteness continues.

I have feels.

A TOTAL FAVORITE AND PERFECTION (and my number one book of 2013).



  1. Love ALL of the books on your list - I'm a huge fan of contemporary books too! :)

    My Top Ten Tuesday

  2. I chose this topic too! I see a lot of my choices in your list too so clearly you have great taste lol Great list!

    Here's My TTT

  3. Brilliant choices! I loved The Distance Between Us. I've just recently read Anna and The French Kiss and it is absolutely adorable.

  4. I just finished Anna and the French Kiss and loved it, and Fangirl is definitely one of my favorite books I've read so far this year! Can't wait to start reading Eleanor and Park soon! Great list :)

  5. Fangirl is my number one favorite contemporary of all time! I also loved Anna and The French Kiss, Lola and The Boy Next Door and Distance Between Us. Great list!

  6. Great picks! Rainbow Rowell is one of my great author finds last year and I loved Eleanor and Park and Fangirl so much! I really enjoyed Stephanie Perkins' writing as well, with me liking Lola and the Boy Next Door better than Anna and the French Kiss. I can't wait for her third release.

    I loved how you describe The Fault in Our Stars. I haven't actually read it yet, although it's in my TBR shelf already, but I already know how it ends but still, I think the magic of this book is when I actually read it. I'm also waiting for the movie to be released. It looks amazing!

    Thanks for sharing! Here's My Top Ten Tuesday list :)

  10. I've read 8 out of 10 of these and you have a really good list going here. Nice call on the ones I have read. And woo hoo for Anna being on the list.

    Thanks for stopping by.

  11. As soon as boards are over, I'm going to max out my credit cards and go crazy buying books on this list. I've wanted to read The fault in our stars and Fangirl and eleanor and park for ages now!

  12. I'm a huge Sarah Dessen fan, so it's great to see her on your list! I also really, really enjoyed Fangirl. I haven't heard of The Distance Between Us, but if it's your number one book of 2013 I'll have to give it a try. :-)

    Here's my TTT if you'd like to check it out.

    We have a lot of overlap. I like. I like it very much. I'd definitely add Sarah Dessen to my list now that I think about it. But for me, I'd add The Truth About Forever (or maybe Along for the Ride). I've read 9/10 books on your list (except for Perfect Chemistry) and I really enjoyed them all.

  14. Looks like some great reads! I really enjoyed Perfect Chemistry and need to continue the series.

  15. Oh The Fault In Our Stars is just amazing and there are a bunch of books on your list that are on my TBR. Great picks
