I mostly stick to YA Contemporay. I have read the Hunger Games, did not them. I loved Divergent Series. I like about anything. I really like John Green, and David Levinthan. So my comy zone is limited.

Nicholette Campbell (lovingmylife-goodreadscom) | 8 comments You may or may not like my book, it's a little dark for YA but the story is powerful and emotional.
If you get a chance, take a look.

Thanks,
Nicholette

That's great. I'm glad you found so much. Come back next time you need some more recs. Ii'm sure I can think of a few ;-)


message 15: by Ashton (new)

Ashton Borden One of my favorite books of all time is Fat Cat by Robin Brande. It's about a girl named Cat who takes on a science project that will transform her life and body. There's romance, self-discovery, and friendship. It's very interesting and I had a lot of fun reading it. It makes you feel inspired to be healthier for sure!

C.E. Self | 2 comments If I may do a little shameless self promotion, I am letting everyone know that the first book of my Finding the Sky series has now been published for Kindle and is also available in print from Amazon.
In the book, an American high school senior travels to Japan for his final year of high school. Seeking a quiet place to work through some of his problems, he encounters girls anxious to get to know him, and others who want nothing more than for him to leave. As his days grow into the ones he wasn't expecting, he only has one question to answer. Was coming to Japan a terrible mistake?

Karleigh (karleighreads) | 62 comments I'm not sure if this belongs here but I'm looking for some advice. I keep hearing about Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell and I'm kind of interested in it but I hate contemporary books, if that's the case will this book end up being not interesting to me or do you suggest I pick it up?

Hmmm... it's definitely contemporary, but the main character loves all things fantasy and is obsessed with a book series similar to Harry Potter.

It's definitely not my favorite contemporary, but mostly because Cath reminded me too much of myself. I criticized myself so much after reading it.

The characters are older, like first year of college, so if you like books about older teens/college aged kids, I'd give it a try. I'd just borrow it in case you end up hating it.

I don't read books about vampires, but I've heard about the Blue Bloods series.

I also found a list that might help you make your choice. :)

Karleigh, I don't read contemporary too. Every contemporary book I've tried to read (If I Stay, Fangirl, Eleanor & Park, etc.) I've tried to like but I hated (contemporary lovers, please don't hate me! Sorry!).
