Back To School Freebie – Required Reading For YA Contemporary Lovers.
1.) Just Listen by Sarah Dessen.
2.) Lock & Key by Sarah Dessen.
I think the whole world needs a little bit of Sarah Dessen in their
life! She is amazing, and I can’t wait to finish reading all of her
books! 😀 She is also releasing a book next summer, and I am
VERY excited! If it’s anything like the rest of her books,
it will be AMAZING! 😀
3.) The Sky Is Everywhere by Jandy Nelson.
4.) I’ll Give You The Sun by Jandy Nelson.
Here is another example of an AMAZING author! Jandy Nelson
knows exactly what she is doing when it comes to writing amazing
stories. I can’t wait until she releases another book. Hopefully,
that will be some time soon! 🙂
5.) Ketchup Clouds by Annabel Pitcher.
If you haven’t already, you should really think about reading
this book. It is a good one! I haven’t had the chance to read any
of her other books, but don’t worry, they are on my TBR. I’ll
get to them some day…I Promise!
6.) Everything Everything by Nicola Yoon.
This is one of the best books I’ve ever read. It’s such a great story,
that you don’t see a lot these days. I can’t wait to get my hands
on her new book The Sun Is Also A Star, coming out November 1st!
7.) Second Chance Summer by Morgan Matson.
This is one of the saddest books I have EVER read! Don’t worry
though, it is well worth it! I still haven’t read any of her other books,
but I promise I will in time!
8.) The Duff by Kody Keplinger.
This is one of the funniest YA books EVER! Bianca Piper,
is one of my favorite characters of all time. She is a riot! You
really should do yourself a favor, and pick up a copy of this
book, and watch the movie!!
9.) OCD Love Story by Corey Ann Haydu.
I didn’t know that I was going to love this books as much as
I did. I love how it shows that there are many different types
of OCD, and no ones symptoms are the same. If you are
interested in learning more about OCD, I think you
should get your hands on this book! 🙂
10.) Lola and The Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins.
I just want you to read this book because it is my favorite
Stephanie Perkins book! I just love it soo much!

I am one of those YA Contemporary lovers and I’ve read and loved most of these books and the others I’ll be adding to my TBR. 😀 Here’s my Tuesday list
I love contemporary novels, and yet I’ve read so few of these! Sarah Dessen is the contemporary queen and I cried a little bit when she announced her new book because I’m so excited. Second Chance Summer is the only Morgan Matson book I haven’t read yet and it’s incredibly high on my TBR! Wonderful list!!
I haven’t read ANY Jandy Nelson but I am always seeing reviews of the books and hearing such amazing things!
I loved Everything Everything, and Lola and the Boy Next Door. Both are perfect YA Contemporary!
Yay, Sarah Dessen and Jandy Nelson books! Awesome picks this week 😊😊
You knocked this list out of the park! So many good ones on here.
Check out my TTT list of Collegiate Fiction. 🙂
I really like your list and totally agree about Sarah Dessen. I actually just read my first book by her earlier this month, Lock and Key, and now can’t wait to get my hands on more of her works. So completely relatable on every level.
So true! 😀
I LOVED I’ll Give You The Sun and The Sky is Everywhere is still on my tbr! 🙂
I’ve heard a lot about Ketchup Clouds and really want to read that one too.
Everything, Everything wasn’t quite my cup of tea. I read it in two to three sittings I think, but the ‘plot twist’ was just way to obvious for my taste…
The Duff and Lola and the boy next door are both also on my tbr, so I hope to read them both soon
Here’s my TTT @ Swissbookworm
I haven’t read any of these, but I’m really looking forward to reading The DUFF!
Check out my TTT.
I seem to read very little contemporary books these days so this is a great list to see. I’ll have to check out some of these.
I love The DUFF + Lola. And I’m finally reading some Sarah Dessen books. My favorite so far is Just Listen. Great list today. Thanks for sharing, and for stopping by my TTT earlier. 🙂
No Problem!! 😀
Excellent choices. Thanks for stopping by my blog.
I loved Lola 🙂 I really need to read a Sarah Dessen book!! I have heard so many great things about her writing!! I also have Everything Everything and the Duff on my TBR 🙂
Sarah Dessen was definitely my gateway into contemporary YA. Second Chance Summer is definitely my favorite Morgan Matson Ketchup Clouds by Annabel Pitcher is getting added to my TBR immediately for how adorable it looks!
I hope you enjoy it when you get around to it! 😀
Great list! Everything, Everything was spectacular! I just started reading YA this year and it was one of my first reads (probably why I kept going!). Have you read Tell Me Three Things?
No I haven’t! I’ve been meaning to, but I haven’t got to it yet! Did you love it?
It was amazing!! The perfect teenage romance 🙂
Can’t wait to read it! 😀
Clearly, I don’t read enough YA, because I haven’t read any of these! Thanks for sharing!
I’ve read and LOVED almost all of these! Just Listen is one of the 2 Sarah Dessen books that I haven’t read. I really need to get to it. Fabulous list!
I haven’t read any of these, but everyone raves about Everything Everything.

That’s an awesome list! I love the Anna and the French Kiss series – I can’t wait for Stephanie Perkins to come out with something new!
Such a fun list! I have Everything, Everything and Stephanie Perkins books on my TBR. Excited to check them out!

I’ve only read one book on that list (Lola and the boy next door). Looks like I need to get to adding books to TBR list. 🙂
I totally agree on so many of these! I think Sarah Dessen is the ultimate required reading for contemporary lovers – I feel like she started it all!
She is the Queen! 😉
I absolutely loooooved Second Chance Summer ❤ I've had the DUFF on my TBR for over a year now, maybe it's time to pick it up 🙂
Thanks for visiting my blog and commenting!
No Problem! 🙂 Thanks for check out mine also 😀
I’m a YA lover, but I’ve only read 2 books on this list… I’m definitely slacking!! I’ll have to get some reading done…
Get to it girl! 😉
Love seeing your picks! I feel like I’m the odd man out when it comes to I’ll Give You the Sun. Everyone raves about it but I didn’t like it at all. I got the feeling from the very beginning that Jandy Nelson’s writing just wasn’t for me and I was right. I can’t believe I haven’t read anything by Morgan Matson yet! I have several by her on my bookshelf but just have not read them yet. Do they need to be read in any particular order or can I just grab any of them to start?
Aww that’s okay, I guess her writing isn’t for everyone. 🙂
I don’t think you really need to read Morgan Matson’s books in order. I’ve only read Second Chance Summer so far…I have two of her other books, I just haven’t got to them yet…I don’t know if they are really connected in a way that makes you have to read it in order. I know that Amy & Roger do make an appearance in Second Chance Summer, but I didn’t even realize it, until I read about it on the internet, because I had never read the book!
OH YES! I am so excited to see you are also a huge fan of Lola. I loved all of the Anna and the French Kiss books from the series, but Lola was BY FAR my favorite book and my favorite character of the three!
And I really like Sara Dessen’s writing! I haven’t picked up her books in a long time but I recently read Saint Anything by her (which is fantastic) and it made me want to go back and get more of her books to read. I can’t believe I ever stopped reading her books!

I love your topic for this week, and I’m definitely pleased to see that even though YA contemporary isn’t my main genre I’ve read most of your required picks! Jandy Nelson is definitely one of my favourite YA contemporary authors, and so is Sarah Dessen actually! So far I’ve only read one book my Morgan Matson but if the rest of hers are as good as Since You’ve Been Gone I’m sure she’ll be added to my favourites list as well!
Great picks! 😀
A fantastic list here! I already have a copy of Everywhere Everywhere but I’ve not read it yet. Will definitely be checking out some of your other suggestions!
Great list! I’ve only read Lola and Everything, Everything so far, but pretty much every other book on your list is on my TBR. I especially want to try out the books by Jandy Nelson. And of course Morgan Matson! Second Chance Summer is the only book by her I haven’t read yet so I must get on that 🙂
I’ve been adding more YA to my life so this list is perfect for me! I haven’t read any of them. Thanks for the recommendations. 🙂
No Problem! 😀
