Top Ten Tuesday: Contemporary YA I Can’t Believe I Haven’t Read Yet


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 their bloggers over at The Broke and the Bookish will answer. Everyone is welcome to join.

This Week’s Topic: : Top Ten Books I Can’t Believe I Haven’t/Want To Read From X Genre

I’ve chosen contemporary YA because it’s one of my favourite genres and the books on this list? I swear I’ve put them on my to-read list a dozen times each. I’m determined to read them eventually! There are just so many fantastic books out there and not enough time to read them all. But I am by no means complaining. This is a great thing!


So without further ado, this is my list for this week:

Take Me On by Katie McGarry (Oh and the new book featuring Noah and Echo after the events of Pushing the Limits)

Take Me On (Pushing the Limits, #4)

This Song Will Save You Life by Leila Sales

Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver

Since You’ve Been Gone, Second Chance Summer, Amy and Roger’s Epic Detour – all by Morgan Matson

Since You've Been Gone Second Chance Summer Amy and Roger's Epic Detour

Perfect Chemistry by Simone Elkeles

My Life Next Door by Huntley Fitzpatrick

On the Fence by Kasie West

On the Fence


I think I’ve mentioned each of these book on my blog before – I do intend on reading them and I’m somewhat surprised I’ve not read them yet. They all look like amazing YA Contemporaries and I look forward to crossing them off my list!

Hope you all have a great week 🙂 Feel free to leave a comment and a link to your Top Ten Tuesday so I can comment back 🙂

  1. I loved Second Chance Summer. I didn’t expect to like it as much as I did. I also can recommend On the Fence by Kasie West. I’ve loved all of her books! I hope that you enjoy these books when you do get around to reading them!

  2. I absolutely LOVED I’ll Give You the Sun. Jandy Nelson’s writing is incredible, of course, and the characters in that book… it had been a while since I felt such unadulterated affection for a set of characters.

    This Song Will Save Your Life was really, really powerful. It’s the most realistic book I’ve read when it comes to bullying, and it had such a unique spin on the characters and her hobbies and interests. I also loved the family bonds in that book too.

  3. Huh, well I haven’t read any of those either. But they are on my to read list, as all books seem to be these days *sigh*
    Although I did read The Summer I turned Pretty which is another one that Jenny Han wrote.

  4. I love contemporary YA, too. I’ve read a good number of these –
    Take Me On, My Life Next Door, Perfect Chemistry, On the Fence, – all I’ve enjoyed. I really need to read Amy and Roger’s Epic Detour, though! Everyone raves about that one.

  5. *swoons* Take Me On was fabulous! I really like Wes, even if he was pretty hot-headed. I just like the boxing aspect of it 😀

    And yes, definitely need to read all of Matson’s books. Publishing order is what I recommend!

    Both of Fitzpatrick’s books were great, but My Life Next Door is extra special ^_^ And To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before was a standout for me last year!

    I’m really hoping to read On the Fence next month, as well as West’s other contemporary 😀

  6. Great List! Half of books on your list I’ve read and the other half are books that are still on the wish list.

    I just read This Song will save your life and it was very empowering and emotional. I also adore To All The Boys I’ve loved before and want to read more from Jenny Han!
