3. My Life Next Door by Huntley Fitzpatrick
5. Paris, My Sweet by Amy Thomas
6. Carrie Goes Off the Map by Philippa Ashley
7. Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins
8. Wanderlove by Kirsten Hubbard
9. Along for the Ride by Sarah Dessen
10. Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta


  1. Omg I so have to read Wanderlove! The reviews for that one are insanely amazing and I can't wait I haven't checked it out yet!! I loved Statistical Probability, too! :D

  2. I've read three books on your list and they were all made of WIN! LOOOOOVED Wanderlove and Lola!! And Amy & Roger! Must reread ALL OF THEM! :)

  3. Oh my goodness! I've only read two from this list! My Life Next Door and Jellicoe Road! But a bunch of them are on my to-read list!

  4. I adored The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight. It was so great! I love your list. I'm not a huge YA Contemporary fan, and you clearly are,but I have to say that you picked some of the best of the best!

    My Top Ten

  5. I don't read many of books in that genre very often. I tried listening to Anna and the French Kiss, but I couldn't do it and I stopped after listening to 1 cd, not my type of book. I have heard many great things about a lot of the books on your list.

  6. Great choices! I've read a lot of these but I need to check out the rest. Jellicoe Road is one I've been meaning to give a go for a while now - seeing that it made your top ten, maybe I should get on that sooner rather than later :)

  7. *sigh* My Life Next Door......I will never stop loving that book!

  8. YES to all of the above, except the two I haven't read, but I'm running off now to look them up byeeeeee!

  9. Only 3 of those books that I haven't read yet but I remember reading your reviews for all of them. It is so cool to look back at all the books you've read since blogging and seeing all different types of them!

  10. lots of good choices and books that I need to read stil!

  11. AHHHHHH! YES TO ALL THESE BOOKS! I haven't read Carrie Goes Off The Map, but I like how the author's name is larger than the title, lol.

  12. Awesome list, Alexa! I think I heard about Paris, My Sweet from you and I haven't heard of Carrie Goes Off the Map. I'm off to check them out!

  13. Amy & Roger and Lola totally made it on my list too!! I just adore both of them and I honestly don't think I would have ever found them without blogging :]
    The Summer Series is also right up there at the top of my TBR :D

  14. Wow I am SO Honoured that Carrie Goes off th Map made this list.


Thanks for leaving a comment! I love seeing what you have to say, and will try to reply (here or on Twitter) as soon as I can :)
