Top Ten of 2014: Best Contemporaries of 2014

Welcome to Day 3 of the Top 10 of 2014
A Week of looking back...
...And looking forward

I love it when it comes around to this time of year and I get to look back on all of the books that I've read and all of the things that I've experienced in some form or another having to do with books, which is why I think it's incredibly awesome that Jaime @ Two Chicks On BooksMindy @ Magical Urban Fantasy ReadsNancy @ Tales of a Ravenous Reader, and Rachel @ Reading YA Rocks are hosting this fabulous week of book nostalgia. I'm kind of bummed that the creators of this amazing yearly feature won't be able to take part in it this year, but hopefully next year Lisa @ Life Bound By Books and Jessica @ Confessions of a Bookaholic will be back with us all. Much love to all of the girls and their incredibly amazing blogs, for taking the time out to put this yearly event together and host it for us. 

They are also hosting an equally AH-MAZING GIVEAWAY that if you've signed up to be a part of this and to participate, you can go HERE to grab the button, sign up, and also fill out the Rafflecopter to be entered into the giveaway. The week is going to last for five consecutive days (December 22nd to December 26th - a Monday through Friday) where we'll be sharing our favorite lists via a different prompt for each day and all you have to do is go to one of the blogs listed above on each of those days and post your url into the linky list so everyone else can see your "favorites" list and so you can get credit too. Just double check and make sure that you have the right post with the correct linky list, in order to get the credit for participating and playing along. 

Today, I get to talk about anything that I feel was the "best" in 2014, since I mostly ended up reading either YA Contemporary or Fantasy mostly this year - I thought I would talk about some of my favorite Contemps. These books are some of what I like to call "the best of the best of 2014," which is why I'm so excited to talk about them with you. THE FEELS FOR SO MANY REASONS! The New Adult books just took me by storm this year and a lot of these stories and characters just stayed with me. 

So sit back, relax, and check out my...

  1. I'm sooooo in love with The Fault in our Stars. I have a special place in my heart for that book. I'm not particularly in love with contemporary but I do love a few of them, they usually have to be highly recommended by a local blogger friend.
