Top Ten Contemporary Books I've Added To My TBR Recently

So, one of my favorite parts of summer is that a lot of people are in the mood to read contemporary more than usual. If you don't know--I LOVE contemporary books. It's probably my favorite genre, so I love when everyone is talking about all these lovely contemporary books and I have more excuse to talk about all these lovely contemporary books.

That said, here are some lovely contemporary books I've added to my TBR recently.

Words in Deep Blue by Cath Crowley - I LOVE CATH CROWLEY and also this one sounds so charming and bookish and everything I want from a contemporary book.

When Dimple Met Rishi by Sandhya Manon - I've heard wonderful things about this. It also focuses on a culture I'm not well-acquainted with. Plus, it just sounds fun and cute and THERE IS COFFEE ON THE COVER.

I See London, I See France by Sarah Mylnowski - This one not only involves traveling throughout Europe (my wanderlust is off the charts lately) but it also seems like it's going to delve into what it's like to have a loved one with mental illness and loving the wrong person and dealing with toxic friendships and that all just sounds tasty.

Eliza and Her Monsters by Francesca Zappia - This includes a trope I always adore: when a character is famous online but not really in real life, but then the world collide. So I'm excited. And it has mixed media!! ALSO A FEMALE WEBCOMIC WRITER WHOOOO.

Seven Days of You by Cecilia Vinesse - Again, traveling! But this time to Tokyo, which I haven't seen a lot of in YA novels. The romance also sounds really interesting. I love the whole "old flames reuniting" thing.

One of Us Is Lying by Karen N. McManus - This one just sounds interesting an exciting! It seems kinda soft-core thriller.

Alex, Approximately by Jenn Bennett - I've heard really great things about this book, and honestly it just sounds SO CUTE. It also brings up something I think is especially relevant for book bloggers: online persona vs. IRL personality.

Girl out of Water by Laura Silverman - This is another one I've heard nothing but positivity about. I feel like it's going to be relatable and different than a lot of other contemporary books I've read.

The Color Project by Sierra Abrams - LOOK AT THAT COVER IT'S GORGEOUS. As an aspiring philanthropist, I think it's really neat that this focuses on a charity organization. It's was pitched for fans of Stephanie Perkins and Morgan Matson--I AM HERE FOR THAT.

Windfall by Jennifer E. Smith - Admittedly, I'm not as excited about this one as I am the other books on this list, but it's a book I've been seeing around the book community lately, and it sounds interesting enough. And I've really never read anything like it before, so I wouldn't be mad about getting my hands on a copy.
