Liz, Dark Confessions of an Extraordinary Woman is not tagged on Goodreads as YA Contemporary and it's listed as 103 pages so it's too short for our monthly group read, but feel free to start a discussion and ask others to join you.

NadiaN99 | 3 comments fangirl would be good since i haven't read it yet.


message 20: by Mary (new)

Mary | 2 comments The Lunar Chronicles (Cinder, Scarlet, Cress) by Marissa Meyer. I've read the first book and it was very good. It's a modern take on some classic fairy tales like Cinderella (obviously) and Little Red Riding Hood. :)


message 21: by Amanda (new)

Amanda Taylor (georgiagirl1315) Looking for Alaska is absolutely amazing. Would love to discuss it with others.

I also have If I Stay and haven't read it yet. I've heard good things about it.

Those two would be my votes/nominations. :)

The Lunar Chronicles is one of my favorite series, but it is not Contemporary so it doesn't qualify for this group read. It is set in the future and it's a Science-Fiction and Dystopian series.
