"Five Friday Favorites" is a meme hosted by Amanda at Book Badger. Each week on Friday, five favorites on different subjects are posted. This week's theme were contemporary books.
I'm not much for contemporaries, I usually prefer speculative fiction, but I have been known to pick up the odd contemporary novel. These are my favorites:
5. "The Summer I Became a Nerd" by Leah Rae Miller
This novel is pure light-hearted fluff, and it's a lot of fun, and it also managed to send a pretty good message.
4. "The Reece Malcolm List" by Amy Spalding
I read this novel last year and I liked it a lot. The romance wasn't all that great, but the musical aspect and the MC's relationship with her mother were really interesting.
3. "All American Girl" by Meg Cabot
I have read and reread this a hundred times, and it's alway a lot of fun. And Sam and David are such a cute couple!
2. "Eleanor and Park" by Rainbow Rowell
I thought this was a really well-written, captivating book. It left me a bit heart-broken, but I'm glad I read it.
1. "Fangirl" by Rainbow Rowell
Yes, another Rainbow Rowell novel. I've got to say I enjoy her books a lot and I thought this one was great, it was one of my favorite reads of 2013.
So, what are your favorite contemporary novels? Let me know in the comments!
