Top Ten Tuesday: YA Contemporaries Recently Added To My TBR


Happy Tuesday and welcome back to Top Ten Tuesday, a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish!  This week's topic is Books From X Genre That I've Recently Added To My TBR.  Since I don't talk about YA Contemporary all that often this time I'm sharing ten YA Contemporary that I've recently added to my tbr.  The first half are 2017 releases and backlist titles in the genre that I somehow haven't gotten around to that I've recently added as well.  Here we go:


It Starts With Goodbye by Christina June


Tash Hearts Tolstoy by Kathryn Ormsbee


Amish Guys Don't Call by Debby Dodds


Alex, Approximately by Jenn Bennett


Letters to the Lost by Brigid Kemmerer


History Is All You Left Me by Adam Silvera


Every Exquisite Thing by Matthew Quick


The Memory Book by Lara Avery


P.S. I Like You by Kasie West


Love Letters to the Dead by Ava Dellaira


What have you recently added to you tbr?  Have you tried any of these YA Contemporaries?  As always, thanks for visiting my blog and perhaps commenting down below!

  4. "It starts with Goodbye" has such a beautiful cover. In fact it reminds me of "Because You'll Never Meet Me"!

  8. I am pretty much obsessed with contemporaries. I read Love Letters, PS I Like You, The Memory Book, Letters to the Lost, Alex Approximately, Amish Guys, and It Started with Goodbye. Most of those were fantastic. Have a lot of tissues handy for The Memory Book. I read it last year, and I remember all the ugly crying I did. I think I might cry now.

  10. Safe to say this is not a sub genre I have much interest in. But I hope you enjoy all of them! And remember to read a good fantasy book in between them.

I've read a lot in the second half, but I'm really looking forward to Letters to the Lost and Tash Hearts Tolstoy! It Started With Goodbye has also been on my TBR for a while. Great picks, and hope you enjoy Every Exquisite Thing!
