I was born! Today is the first day of the last year in my twenties. Crazy!!
I've had a good feeling about this year since the start of it, so aside from the fact that my next birthday will put me in my thirties, I'm optimistic this year is going to be memorable.
A year ago today I picked up Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins at my local Borders (*sniffles*) and read it in two days. This book sparked my love for contemporary YA, and ultimately urged me to write a contemporary myself (the one I just finished the first draft of!). Sort of puts high expectations on whatever book I start reading today, doesn't it? :)
Now that I'm in lurve with contemporaries, what are some of your favorite titles??
Some that I've enjoyed recently are:
The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight by Jennifer E. Smith
Past Perfect by Leila Sales
Perfect Chemistry and Rules of Attraction by Simone Elkeles
