Top Ten Books For Readers Who Like Contemporary Teen Romance

Top Ten Books for Readers of Contemporary Teen Romance
(Feature hosted by The Broke and the Bookish)

I'm a sucker for a sweet love story, and as far as I'm concerned, contemporary teen romance writers often get it right.  There's a bit of angst, a whole lot of uncertainty, and heavy doses of sweetness without all the stuff that makes me blush.  There are feels.  Lots and lots of feels.

So here's we go.  My list of favorite contemporary teen romances.  What would you add to the list?

1) Amy & Roger's Epic Detour by Morgan Matson
"The road home may be unfamiliar - especially with their friendship venturing into uncharted territory - but together, Amy and Roger will figure out how to map their way."

2) Truth About Forever by Sarah Dessen
"A long, hot summer....that's what Macy has to look forward to while her boyfriend, Jason, is away at Brain Camp.  But sometimes, unexpected things can happen - things such as the catering job at Wish, with its fun-loving, chaotic crew."

3) Ann and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins
"Anna is looking forward to her senior year in Atlanta, where she as a great job, a loyal best friend, and a crush on the verge of becoming more.  Which is why she is less than thrilled about being shipped off to boarding school in Paris - until she meets Etienne St. Clair."

4) 13 Little Blue Envelopes by Maureen Johnson
"Inside little blue envelope 1 are $1,000 and instructions to buy a plane ticket."

5) My Life Next Door by Huntley Fitzpatrick
"The Garretts are everything the Reeds are not.  Loud, messy, affectionate.  And every day from her rooftop perch, Samantha Reed wishes she was one of them...until one evening, Jase Garrett clips up next to her and changes everything."

6) Just One Day by Gayle Forman
"Allyson Healey's life is exactly like her suitcase - packed, planned, ordered.  Then on the last day of her three-week post-graduation European tour, she meets Willem."

7) Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell
"A coming-of-age tale of fan fiction, family, and first love."

8) Peaches by Jodi Lynne Anderson
"In a Ya-Ya Sisterhood for teens, Peaches combines three unforgettable heroines who have nothing in common but the troubles that have gotten them sentenced to a summer of peach picking at a Georgia orchard."

9) The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight by Jennifer E. Smith
"Four minutes changes everything.  Hadley Sullivan misses her flight at JFK airport, is late to her father's second wedding in London with never-met stepmother.  Hadley meets the perfect boy."

10) The Avery Shaw Experiment by Kelly Oram
"When Avery Shaw's heart is shattered by her life long best friend, she chooses to deal with it the only way she knows how - scientifically."

  1. I love Fangirl! :O So happy it made the list!
    Have you heard of, 'A Little Something Different' by Sandy Hall? It's such a cute love story that deals more with Uni students than like...teenagers. But it's so filled with fluff and ugh, heart eyes everywhere.
