I’m always looking for underrated contemporary recommendations, because contemporary is one of my favorite genre to read. Really handy as well if you’re looking for new contemporaries for #contemporaryathon. It’s hosted multiple times a year and the readathon lasts for a week. Check this link for dates and more information.
Twenties Girl by Sophie Kinsella
This book is about a girl who really likes the 1920s. She is losing her mind and sees a ghost (her aunt) so she’s losing her mind. I really like the 1920s setting and it’s a super fast read. And it has “twenties” in the title! Some of you want to read a book with twenties in the title so a great one in my opinion.
A Walk To Remember by Nicholas Sparks
One of my favorite books ever, so of course I had to recommend it. Nicholas Sparks usually write adult fiction, but this one is young adult. Adults can read it as well off course. It’s sad, yet super sweet and adorable.
If I Was Your Girl by Meredith Russo
This is about a transgender who is trying to fit in in a new school. I think this is a very important book and that more people should read it.
Attachments by Rainbow Rowell
Pick this book up if you’re in the mood for a cute adult romance contemporary book. Most of her books are for young adults, but this one is different. Many of you have probably read more hyped adult romance books, but this one is really good too! It’s besides Eleanor and Park my favorite Rainbow Rowell book.
Just Listen by Sarah Dessen
I really like Sarah Dessen’s books and have read almost all of them (and she has a bunch!). Check them all out on her website if you’re curious about all of her books. Just Listen is just one of them that I really like. Most of her books (I think actually of them, but haven’t read them all yet) are set in summer. They are mostly for young adult audience because they are about teenage girls, but I think everyone can and should read them.
Keep an eye on my blog for some more underrated contemporary recommendations, because I’m sure I will do more in the future.
