I was going to post my review for P.S. I Still Love You by Jenny Han today but something just wasn’t sitting right. So I scrapped it. Instead, I’m glad I found another weekly meme to join!
Top 3 Thursday is a weekly meme hosted by Mel @ A Cosy Reading Blog. Today’s prompt is Contemporary Books.
I don’t really read that many contemporaries (I’m more of a romantic suspense/fantasy fan) but I have read some incredible contemporaries in the last couple of years.
- Simon Vs. The Homo Sapiens Agenda: A YA LGBT romance about a not-so-openly gay sixteen-year-old whose secret emails fall into the wrong hands and if he doesn’t give in to the blackmail, his whole world could collapse around him.
I read this back in 2016 first and absolutely ADORED it, then watched the movie last year and reread it and loved it even more! This is one instance where I’m not sure whether I love the book or the movie more.
- Geekerella: Another sweet and adorable contemporary romance retelling of Cinderella about a fangirl whose favorite series is being rebooted as a movie and the winner of a Cosplay Contest will win an invitation to the ball and a meet-and-greet with the lead actor.
Told in alternating chapters from the POV of the female and male protagonists, this was one sweet ride! I’m so excited for the sequel coming out in a couple of months!
- The Kiss Quotient: Just finished this one a couple days back and I was not prepared for the cuteness that is this book! It had been a long time since I read an adult contemporary romance but I loved this one to bits!
A wealthy econometrician hires a male escort to teach her how to get better at sex – a kind of gender-bender retelling of Pretty Woman (the Julia Roberts movie) and more. Even more amazing is the fact that it’s an own voices debut novel!
These were the top 3 books that came to mind when I saw today’s prompt. I’m so glad I read them when I did – sometimes, change is good. 😊
Have you read any of these books? How did you like them? Which contemporary books do you recommend to everyone? Tell me in the comments below!
