My favourite contemporary YA

This post comes as part of my role as a #BroodingYAHero Street Team member, the #BroodyBFFs.

Because I am a very unabashedly basic human, some of my favourite books are contemporary. While I do really enjoy some fantasy fiction and really love me some historical fiction, there’s no better for me than stories that involve people facing current issues.

Here’s a list of just a few of the masses of contemporary YA I’ve really enjoyed over my reading career. It’s in no particular order, but more as they came to my mind. Some are #UKYA, and if you’ve not heard of them I definitely recommend you seek them out.

The Spinster Club trilogy by Holly Bourne

The One Memory of Flora Banks by Emily Barr

Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell

The Fault in Our Stars by John Green 

The Georgia Nicolson series by Louise Rennison

Radio Silence by Alice Oseman

Trouble by Non Pratt

Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins

The State of Grace by Rachael Lucas

Candy by Kevin Brooks

Needlework by Deirdre Sullivan

All About Mia by Lisa Williamson
