Top Ten Contemporary Books
(This list includes both YA and Adult fiction and read and to-be-read.)

1. Dash & Lily's Book of Dares by Rachel Cohn & David Levithan
I just cannot sing this book's praises enough, such a big story inside a small form.

2. Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins
While I haven't read this one yet, it's definitely near the top of my to-read list for contemporaries.

3. The Bake-Off by Beth Kendrick
Baking in books = win for readers who love to bake

4. Rival by Sara Bennett Wealer
I love this one for the nostalgia it brings me.

5. The Internet Girls Trilogy by Lauren Myracle (ttyl, ttfn, l8r g8r)
These absolutely cracked me up overall, and I love books that tell the story using different means.

6. Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson
Not quite contemporary, but it's still one of my favorite and most powerful reads. Melinda could be any girl of today, which is why it's so timeless.

7. Getting Over Garrett Delaney by Abby McDonald
The summary reminded me a little of an Asian film I watched recently, Sophie's Revenge, and it sounds like a fun read.

8. The List by Siobhan Vivian
After reading an amazing review, I was inspired to add it to the to-read list. 

9. Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher
While I still haven't read this one yet, I've seen it praised on so many other blogs that I have to include it here.

10. The Outside of a Horse by Ginny Rorby
I have to include my newest to-read horse book especially since I miss reading horse-featured stories.
