I love, love, love YA contemporary books and as it’s now summer, it’s the perfect time to read them! I came across a post I wrote nearly two years ago entitled Hey, Look. It’s Summer! where I picked out some contemporary books to read and I thought I’d do the same again. If you’re paying close attention, you’ll notice that one book makes a reappearance… Click on the title to go to read more about the book on Goodreads.
The Last Summer of Us by Maggie Harcourt
I was hooked as soon as I read the words ‘road trip’.
Saint Anything by Sarah Dessen
Sarah Dessen is hailed as the queen of summer reads and I can’t wait to read her latest.
This One Summer by Mariko Tamaki & Jillian Tamaki
This sounds like a delightful summery coming-of-age graphic novel.
My Life Next Door by Huntley Fitzpatrick
IT’S JUST ALL SO CUTE. I love the colour scheme of My Life Next Door – baby blue and yellow. Can you even get any more summery? I will finally read this.
And that’s it! I can’t wait. Have you read any of these?
If you’re in the summer mood, here’s a few more books from my ‘to read’ list: How To Be Bad, Love Bomb, Vanishing Girls, Have a Little Faith, The Miseducation of Cameron Post, This Song Will Save Your Life, Vivian Versus the Apocalypse, Time Between Us, Roomies, The Age of Miracles, Divine Secrets of the Ya Ya Sisterhood, The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks, All That Glitters, Fish Out of Water, The Geography of Me and You, Emmy & Oliver, Blue, The Night We Said Yes and Between Us and the Moon.
