Nomes cool list :) I've added contemp YA where the protag is finished high school or 18+

I could add Graffiti Moon? They are celebrating finishing school. Also ~ is An Abundance of Katherines set after high school?


message 2: by Nic (new)

Nic Sounds good. Book of those books are good.

I have added some that they are in the final year of HS but generally the love interest is older like Going Too Far and I Know Pronounce You Someone else.

I didn't do a good job with the description. I hope people understand and we get a few titles we haven't heard on there :)


message 3: by Nomes (new)

Nomes haha ~ yeah. I was looking over my shelves and alot of my older protags books are not contemp ~ it's really hard to place books like Graceling ~ so I just kept it open to my contemporary settings and not fantasy/post-apocalyptic reads...

your description is fine :)


message 4: by Janina (new)

Janina Great idea, Nic! Don't have time to go through my shelves and look for something at the moment, but I'll be coming back to this list. I love YA contemps with older protagonists as well ;).


message 5: by Nic (new)

Nic Thanks Janina. I need to go through my lists too :)

Nomes, I think I will add it too the title for contemps only.


message 6: by Jasprit (new)

Jasprit I agree this is a great list, most of the books on here I still have to read :)


message 7: by Arlene (new)
