Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly event hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.

This week's topic really showed me how far behind I've gotten on my Goodreads challenge. I need to pick up the pace, reading wise. Or focus on audiobooks and stop listening to so many podcasts. 

Here's the list: 


It reflects how my reading taste can be a bit all over the place but still gears toward YA. Speaking of which, I feel like I've been incepted/successfully convinced to read more YA contemporary, so if anyone wants to leave recs in the comments, I'd really appreciate it.

I loved Rainbow Rowell's Attachments, and I'm looking forward to reading her others, especially Fangirl.
Also, if you are interested in reading more YA and Contemporary, I would HIGHLY recommend Morgan Matson's Since You've Been Gone. It's wonderful.

Oooh so many books I still have on my TBR. The Goldfinch will be available at my library tomorrow so I might pick it up soon. I have to read Schwab soon as well, and Bardugo, too. I heard so many amazing things.

Happy reading!

I really need to read Scarlet. I loved Cinder, but I haven't managed to read the next book yet!

Great list! If you're looking for contemporary YA you might try any A.S. King, E. Lockhart's We Were Liars, Andrew Smith's Grasshopper Jungle, J.C. Carleson's The Tyrant's Daughter, and And We Stay by Jenny Hubbard. I liked all of these and while they are all contemporary, they are very different from one another.

The cover of Unbound is amazing!!!

stacie ball said...

I've wanted to read Unbound for a long time now so happy to see that its good..
Eleanor & Perk is a really good book and if you haven't already, read Fangirl :P
Siege and Storm <3 The Darkling is one of my favourite characters out of all the books I've read in the last year so I'm glad you liked it. And scarlet was a really good book too,


great list :)


p.s if you are looking for more contemporary authors, have a look at Sarah Dessen :)

Thanks for the rec Stacie, I'll check her out. Unbound is a great sequel, I really like Schwab's characterizations.

Lynn said...

I agree, the covers for the series are pretty cool. Thanks for commenting Sheila :)

JaimeLH said...

This is a great list of recs, thank you! Adding to the tbr.

JaimeLH said...

I still need to read Cress :), but Scarlet's pretty entertaining.

JaimeLH said...

The Goldfinch does drag a bit in the middle, but I felt the end was rewarding. Definitely recommend Schwab and Bardugo :)

JaimeLH said...

Thanks for the recs Stephani! I'v heard great things about those novels, time to read them :).

stacie ball said...
