message 1: by Dahlia (new)

Dahlia In case anyone's monitoring this list, THE VOW is 2013 and already out; PRETENDING TO BE ERICA is 2015.


message 2: by Rainbowheart (new)

Rainbowheart Should Pandemic be on this list? Looks more like it's post-apocalyptic science fiction.


message 3: by Rainbowheart (new)

Rainbowheart My Not So Super Sweet Life looks like a time travel book. Not sure it should be on here.


message 4: by Rainbowheart (new)

Rainbowheart Removed Alienated, since that is clear cut science fiction.

Katie (or anyone else), what do you think about Pandemic and My Not So Super Sweet Life? Should they be taken off?


message 5: by Katie (new)

Katie Pandemic looks science fiction from the description, and My Not So Super Sweet Life does say that it's time travel, so I think those should probably be removed.


message 6: by Rainbowheart (new)

Rainbowheart Thanks Katie! I removed those for you.

What do you think about Ask Again Later? It's contemporary, but it kind of verges on fantasy since there are parallel stories that play out as alternate realities.


message 7: by Katie (new)

Katie I'm not sure about Ask Again Later. I feel like that book is completely contemporary except for one small thing (the alternate realities), and I don't think it really is science fiction either.


message 8: by Rainbowheart (new)

Rainbowheart Yeah, it's a tough one. Ask Again Later seems more like contemporary to me than anything else.

Removed these....

No Returns
Uncovering Cobbogoth

Both were clear cut fantasy novels.


message 9: by Rainbowheart (new)

Rainbowheart What about that Learning to Love a Rogue book? It's got 3 votes, but it doesn't seem to be either contemporary *or* YA.


message 10: by Rainbowheart (new)

Rainbowheart Removed Anna and the French Kiss, which was published in 2010.


message 11: by Rainbowheart (new)

Rainbowheart Is Afterworlds by Scott Westerfeld contemporary or paranormal? Sounds like it has fantasy elements.


message 12: by Rainbowheart (new)

Rainbowheart Ok, this list had gotten to be a huge mess, so I spent some time cleaning it up. It's frustrating that so many people completely ignore what the list is supposed to be for.

Removed these for wrong publication year....

Beautiful (2009)
Just Listen (2006)
Love 'em or Leave 'em (2010)
Fire with Fire (2013, also paranormal)
The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight (2011)

Removed for wrong category....

Just One Thing (not YA)
Infected (science fiction)
Burn for Burn (paranormal)
Learning to Love a Rogue (not YA)
The Here and Now (science fiction)
Harbinger (paranormal, also 2012)
Mind Mods (science fiction, also 2011)
Master and Apprentice (fantasy, also 2013)
Geared to the Present, Jones Whitman Time Traveler Series (science fiction)

Question mark....

Right-Hearted: Finding What's Right With a Wrong-Sided Heart (memoir)

Are memoirs allowed on this list? I was assuming it was for contemporary fiction only, but didn't want to remove without asking.


message 13: by Erin Lynn (new)

Erin Lynn P.S. I Still Love You isn't 2014. I removed it.


message 14: by Erin Lynn (new)

Erin Lynn I also removed Burn for Burn. I hope you don't mind. I just get annoyed when people add books to my lists that don't belong.


message 15: by Rainbowheart (last edited Aug 15, 2014 08:55AM) (new)

Rainbowheart Maybe it would be a good idea to change the description of this list and add a definition for contemporary? So many people seem to think paranormal books belong. And perhaps specify that the list is only intended for books with a *first* publishing date of 2014.

Also did some housekeeping....

Golden (2013)
Wildfire (adult)
Sunburn (1993)
Wild Awake (2013)
Double Date (1994)
Perfect Opposite (NA)
Our Kind of Love (NA)
Five Summers (2013)
Land of the Free (adult)
Ashes to Ashes (paranormal)
The Earthquake Machine (2011)
Clockwork Angel (2010, also fantasy)
Clockwork Prince (2011, also fantasy)
Fire with Fire (2013, also paranormal)
HTM Light Rail Vehicle GTL8 The Hague, Netherlands (WTF?)
Under Lock and Key (seems like some kind of dystopian horror)
The Sacred Lies of Minnow Bly (2015, also seems like paranormal?)

I'm sure there's more, but that's all I have time for right now!


message 16: by Rainbowheart (new)

Rainbowheart Removed....

My Forever (2013)
Meant to Be (2012)
Whiskey Prince (NA)
Pieces of Me (2013)
Uninvited (dystopian)
Fears of Darkness (2013)
Amy and Roger's Epic Detour (2010)


message 17: by Rainbowheart (last edited Dec 16, 2014 05:13PM) (new)

message 19: by Durga (new)

Durga Um, somebody needs to remove Always and Forever Lara Jean by Jenny Han. It was published in 2017


message 20: by Rainbowheart (new)

Rainbowheart Thanks for the heads up! I removed that one along with several other non-2014 releases.
