Recommendations: Contemporaries


I love contemporary books, it’s one of my favourite genres. Summer is the perfect time to read them, though they’re the type of book that I pick up all year round, and I thought that I’d share some of my favourites (these are not in an order). Any that I have reviewed should be linked.

I nearly missed this off my list… How? HOW?! It’s amazing and perfect and ugh.

  • Anna and the French Kiss, Lola and the Boy Next Door, Isla and the Happily Ever After – Stephanie Perkins

I’m sure you’ve heard a lot about them already, but they really are fabulous.

  • One – Sarah Crossan

This made me cry, it’s so wonderful.

This was such a gorgeous story.

One of my favourites of last year.

  • Am I Normal Yet? – Holly Bourne

I’m so looking forward to finishing this trilogy.

  • Since You’ve Been Gone, Amy and Roger’s Epic Detour – Morgan Matson

Since You’ve Been Gone is my favourite of the two, but Morgan Matson is fast becoming one of my favourite writers, I can’t wait to read her other two.

This was such a wonderful read.

  • Fangirl – Rainbow Rowell

I think everyone has heard of or read this, but it deserves the hype.

  • Faceless – Alyssa Sheinmel

There is very little romance in this, and it was so refreshing.

I loved the characters in this novel and also the narration is unique and interesting.

Have you read any contemporaries that you’ve enjoyed? Let me know!
