I’ve read the Sarah Dessen ones 😀 Is Paint it black great? I’ve only read White Oleander and it’s one of my faves 😀
Yes, Paint It Black Is good. It was a little different than I was use to, seeing as I was younger when I bought it, but I still loved it! 😀
I loved seeing Bernadette on here! That book was so much fun!
I know! I can’t wait to get my hands on her new book! 😀
Oh, great list. I loved The DUFF, and I’ve been meaning to read Silver Linings Playbook (the movie’s so good). 🙂
Thanks for sharing, and for stopping by my TTT earlier!
I love everything Sarah Dessen! I’m glad she made your list!
Me too! She is great! 😀
I love The Bell Jar and I’ll Give You The Sun. They are some my favorites as well.
Oooh, love how you included several different genres here. I almost did memoirs and Glass Castle would have been up there on my list. Not technically a memoir, but have you read Tiny Beautiful Things by Cheryl Strayed? ❤
No I haven’t is it good?
Love the Sarah Dessen! She’s one of my all time favorite authors! Happy reading and thanks for stopping by Scintillating Reads! 🙂
As usual – a very nice selection. I really enjoyed Where’d You Go Bernadette, happy to see it appear here 😀
You know what? I really wanna read Just Listen. Like it’s on my shelf and I always wanna pick it up but there’s always some book that stops me. But, I’ll definitely read it soon. The Girl on the Train is also on my tbr. ❤
Everything, Everything is love. So excited for the movie. 😄
DOO IT!!! 😀
I really want to read I’ll Give You the Sun. Everything Everything was okay and I’ve only seen the DUFF movie and it was so good!
Girl! You NEED to read this book! 😀
The Girl on the Train was excellent! And, you’re making me really excited for The Duff. 🙂
I’m glad I can help! 😉
Great idea for your list – you get to fit more books in!
Fight Club is a book I’ve had for quite a while and this just reminds me – I think it’s disappeared under a pile of others!
I’ve read all but one of your YA favs and I love them too! Everything, Everything and I’ll Give You the Sun as so incredible. Great list!
Everything Everything seems very popular, and that Chelsea Handler one cracks me up. The Girl On The Train was a pretty good mystery, and I’m looking forward to the movie!
I almost had a Sarah Dessen novel on my list today. The Bell Jar is so good, I love Sylvia Plath’s poetry.
I still haven’t read any of her poetry!! 😐 I have one of her books of poetry, but I still haven’t picked it up!
Her poetry is transcending. I highly recommend you give it a look soon.
So many great books on your list! I just read Lock and Key for the first time recently and really loved it. Where’d You Go, Bernadette was awesome too! My TTT.
Oh I love how you did it as categories! I LOVE I’LL GIVE YOU THE SUN SO MUCH!! One of the best contemporaries I’ve ever read for sure. *hugs it*
Thanks for stopping by @ Paper Fury!
Well, I haven’t read all of these, but I do love Sarah Dessen, my favorites are Just Listen and The Truth About Forever. I also loved Everything Everything. I haven’t read I’ll Give You the Sun, but I love The Sky is Everywhere by Nelson. Great list!
Yes! The Truth About Forever is a good one!!! If you liked The Sky Is Everywhere, then I’m sure you will LOVE I’ll Give You The Sun! 😀
Yeees for Sarah Dessen! She’s my all-time favourite YA contemporary author, and her books just give me all the feels. So nostalgic and so heart-warming and so, so meaningful. ❤
I loved Everything Everything! So many good books on this list. 🙂
Oh my goodness, this list is meant for me! haha. I love those Sarah Dessen books and Catalyst, too. The Bell Jar is one of my favorite books of all time. And I loved The Glass Castle. Great list! And thanks for stopping by my site 🙂
TWINS! 😉 Thanks! 😀
Fight Club! I wrote an extensive paper on it in college. My professor wanted me to get it published. Definitely an intriguing read!
I really liked Everything Everything, and I haven’t read Catalyst in a long time, but I really liked it. Lauren Halse Anderson is amazing, though. I haven’t read The Glass Castle, but I’ve heard really good things about it. Great list!
It’s also exciting, because they are making a movie based on The Glass Castle, starring my girl Brie Larson! 😀
OMG! I’ll Give You The Sun is one of my favorites! 🙂 Sometimes I feel like i say everything is my favorite. LOL. 🙂
I have yet to find a copy of Tiger Tiger. Your old post about it made me really interested in reading it. 😀 I’ve been meaning to read at least one of Chuck Palahniuk’s books but I haven’t purchased Choker yet. 🙂
Great list! Awesome recommendations too! 🙂
Thanks! 😀 I feel the same way! There are SO many great books out there! It’s hard to choose only ONE favorite! 🙂
This is such a great list! I love how you listed books from a bunch of different genres. I really want to read I’ll Give You the Sun and We Have Always Lived in the Castle. I want to read some Chuck Palahniuk too. I’m reading The Bell Jar at the moment and I love the writing so much.
Good! I’m glad you are liking it! If I were one to reread books/if my TBR wasn’t so big, I would reread The Bell Jar in a heart beat! 🙂
I read Something Borrow by Emily Griffin. Maybe I should read Something blue one day too. I love the cover on Everything Everything. So beautiful. It’s still on my to-read list ☺
You should totally read Something Blue! It made my start seeing Darcy in a different light! 🙂
Great idea to split it up in different genres! I’ve only read Eveything Everything and Fight Club from this list so far, but I abolutely loved those! I also want to read I’ll Give You The Sun and The Girl on the Train soon.
Love how you’ve done this topic! I also loved Just Listen, and seriously need to read some more Sarah Dessen, and Everything Everything is currently on my TBR so hopefully I can get round to it soon 🙂
Everyone seems to have Everything, Everything on their list and with them also making into a movie, I am just constantly reminded that I finally need to read it xD
Do it! 😉
Great list. I need to read Catalyst by Laurie Halse Anderson and more books by Sarah Dessen. I also loved The Girl on the Train. And I can’t remember the ending, so I’m super excited about the movie. 🙂
I love EVERYTHING, EVERYTHING. I made a few attempts to read and finish reading Silver Linings Playbook but I have never finished reading the book… I don’t really know why… That was a I guess I had more fun things to do 😀 I’m going to read I’ll Give You the Sun soon… Hopefully it is as good as many people say!
If you haven’t already, you should definitely watch the movie for Silver Linings Playbook! I loved the book, but I think I LOVED the movie more! 🙂
I love that you included various genres in this week theme. And yay we have I’ll Give You the Sun and Just Listen as our favourite YA contemporaries; they’re great books aren’t they?
Great picks for this week! 😀
SO many good books here! I LOVED the DUFF and The Glass Castle! I wasn’t a big fan of Everything, Everything because of the ending, but I LOVED the author’s writing style and I’m so excited for her next book!!!
Love Everything Everything!!!!
The only thing I’ve read here is The Bell Jar, but I am curious about I’ll Give You The Sun
Good ones! I’ll Give You the Sun was a really great read for me. I didn’t read DUFF but I did see the movie and really enjoyed it. I’ll have to add some of these to my ever-growing list! Thanks for visiting me.
You MUST read The Duff!!! 😀
The Duff is one of my favorite! I love Bianca and Wes <33 Also I need to read Sarah Dessen's books since many people seems to like it. And Everything Everything by Nicola Yoon sounds really good, I can't wait for the movie! Great list 🙂
I wish I had thought to do a multiple genres list. Great idea! I haven’t read any of these books. But Everything, Everything keeps showing up week after week on the TTT lists I read. It needs to get moved up my TBR list.
MY TTT: http://books.thetechchef.net/top-ten-tuesday-14/
From Sarah Dessen, I love Just Listen and This Lullaby! They are my fave reads by her. Catalyst has a pretty cover! I hadn’t seen it before. I read The DUFF ages ago so I don’t remember much about it. I did see the movie and really liked it a lot!
Genesis @ Latte Nights Reviews
I’ll Give You the Sun has such a nice cover! I remember reading it and just getting distracted all the time XD
So, based solely on your (repeated ;)) praise for “I’ll Give You The Sun”, I’ve now read it, and thank you! You’ve now qualified as a trusted book recommender in my book 😀
Oh Thanks! 🙂
