My Top 5 Favorite Realistic Contemporary YA Books

Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s topic is Top Ten ALL TIME Favorite Books Of X Genre. I decided on realistic contemporary because I thought it would be easier than picking through my favorite sci-fi or fantasy stories, especially since genre lines are more easily blurred and be constantly questioning which genre it really was, so I wanted to make it clear-cut. However, this meant less options that I love, and I want to change that, so please comment with your fave contemporary YA books!

  1. The Fixer and The Long Run look like they’d be fun, fast paced YA thrillers and The LAst Time We Say Goodbye looks interesting.

    • The Fixer and The Long Game both really surprised me quite a few times! The Last Time We Say Goodbye is a super compelling book about the aftermath of a loved one’s suicide and definitely a worthwhile read.

  2. I don’t usually read contemporary so I have not read any of these unfortunately! I know my library has The Fixer so maybe I will get to it someday. I will have to get back to you on my contemporary favorites. I can’t think of any off the top of my head!

    • Well there’s a reason I only have 5 listed! I’ve been trying to read more though. I think you would enjoy The Fixer and I also recommend The Start of Me and You to almost everyone!
