This week’s Top Ten Tuesday with The Broke and the Bookish is “Favorite Authors In X Genre”. Since I just barely started reading more contemporary books (i.e. normal old no power, no magic, no undercover spy work just regular people in world settings) I thought I’d share some of those that I’ve enjoyed. I don’t quite have 10 but these are a good start. And if you wanna be friends on Goodreads, I’m here.

You have me wanting to read about 1/2 of these. I just got done reading “Matched” and I am looking for more since the trilogy isn’t done yet.
Thanks so much,

How have I seriously not read any of these? Although I am not sure this is my favorite genre.
Bookworm Belle says
Man, I keep seeing this Anna and the French Kiss everywhere! Guess I better pick it up :)
Anna and the French Kiss is one of my favorites! As you said, what’s better than a cute boy and Paris?
13 Little Blue Envelopes is a lot of fun and made me want to backpack across Europe someday!
I LOVE Mara Dyer. Noah Shaw is perfection.
Awesome list! (:
LOVE your choices! So many of these are favorites for me as well! I still need to read The Sky is Everywhere and Unraveling, though, but it’s nice to hear they’re both awesome :)
Here’s my TTT
I’ve read hardly any of these authors work, other than Michelle Hodkin, but basically the rest are all ones I’m really wanting to read! Awesome list!
I LOVE your list! Mara is so amazing! The sequel is just as good. I also love 13 Little Blue Envelopes, and Anna, and all of them basically. :)
My Top Ten
So many books I still need to read! Anna and the French Kiss! I need to read it. Need. :)
J’adore Happy Endings
I am also new-ish to the YA Contemp genre. I only started reading it more this year. I haven’t read Sarah Dessen or Rachel Cohn yet… say what?? I am reading If I Stay by Gayle Forman and it’s amazing so far. If you’re looking to try other contemps, you should check it out!

Anna and the French Kiss is one of my all time favorites! It is the book that made me realize that I really enjoy YA contemporary. I’ve read some of the others on your list, but there are a few here that I need to check out! Great list. Thanks for stopping by my TTT!
~Nikki (Imaginative Adventure)
Some great choices on your list! I also need to read The Sky Is Everywhere, I’ve had it sitting on my shelf for about 6 months! And I need to try a Sarah Dessen book too, somehow I’ve just never got around to reading her.
Anna and the French Kiss was my first YA contemporary too! It seriously got me hooked on the genre. And that Sarah Dessen book is my favorite!
Racquel (A Book Barbie) says
Great list!! I’m a big fan of Sarah Dessen. The Truth About Forever, Just Listen and What Happened to Goodbye are my top 3 favorites by her <3
Amazing choices! 13 Little Blue Envelopes is one of my all time favorite books!
I’m clearly a week late here but awesome list! I don’t read a whole lot of YA contemporary so perhaps I’ll check out some of these books out ;) Thanks for dropping by my blog last week =)
