Contemporary Novels That I Want To Have and Read Someday!

Yo guys! I’m here again to share to all of you some contemporary novels that I’d like to have someday.

I’m not really into contemporary novels because I often read and buy trilogies or series but, as I finished Falling Into Place and decided what book should I read next I realized that I missed lots of wonderful contemporary novels out there. However, I’m finding some ways and solutions on how can I fit my budget to buy contemporary novels together with lots of trilogies and series that I like to have someday.

Without further ado let’s start right away! 🙂

18189606Since You’ve Been Gone by: Morgan Matson

“It was Sloane who yanked Emily out of her shell and made life 100% interesting. But right before what should have been the most epic summer, Sloane just…disappears. All she leaves behind is a to-do list.

On it, thirteen Sloane-inspired tasks that Emily would normally never try. But what if they could bring her best friend back?

Apple picking at night? Okay, easy enough.

Dance until dawn? Sure. Why not?

Kiss a stranger? Um…

Emily now has this unexpected summer, and the help of Frank Porter (totally unexpected), to check things off Sloane’s list. Who knows what she’ll find?

Go skinny-dipping? Wait…what?”

I always see this book a lot in so many blog sites but it’s not the hype that draw me to read this book. IT’S THE STORY IT’S THE FREAKING STORY. It’s all about friendship and folks I’ve been looking for some books about friendships because I know I can relate about them and so that I can pick some lessons from the book that I can apply in real life. I have three best friends and I think it will best for us to read this book together. I hope I can convince them. *evil laugh*

18459855Another Day by: David Levithan

“Every day is the same for Rhiannon. She has accepted her life, convinced herself that she deserves her distant, temperamental boyfriend, Justin, even established guidelines by which to live: Don’t be too needy. Avoid upsetting him. Never get your hopes up.

Until the morning everything changes. Justin seems to see her, to want to be with her for the first time, and they share a perfect day—a perfect day Justin doesn’t remember the next morning. Confused, depressed, and desperate for another day as great as that one, Rhiannon starts questioning everything. Then, one day, a stranger tells her that the Justin she spent that day with, the one who made her feel like a real person…wasn’t Justin at all.

In this enthralling companion to his New York Times bestseller Every Day, David Levithan tells Rhiannon’s side of the story as she seeks to discover the truth about love and how it can change you.”

I’ve seen this book in a bookstore about a few weeks ago and when I read the plot I already knew that I will love this book. I was tempted to buy it but I just can’t because I have lots of books to buy that I have already planned. The story is pretty mysterious and intriguing and it’s not a common love story I guess. Ahh! I will have this book pretty soon.

23528142Juniors by: Kaui Hart Hemmings

“Part Hawaiian, part Mainlander. Perpetual new girl at school. Hanging in the shadow of her actress mother’s spotlight. And now: new resident of the prominent West family’s guest cottage.

Bracing herself for the embarrassment of being her classmates’ latest charity case, Lea is surprised when she starts becoming friends with Will and Whitney West instead—or in the case of gorgeous, unattainable Will, possibly even more than friends. And despite their differences, Whitney and Lea have a lot in common: both are navigating a tangled web of relationships, past disappointments and future hopes. As things heat up with Will, and her friendship with Whitney deepens, Lea has to decide how much she’s willing to change in order to fit into their world.

Lea Lane has lived in between all her life. But it isn’t until her junior year that she learns how to do it on her own terms.”

I’M A JUNIOR RIGHT NOW AND I’LL BE A SENIOR NEXT YEAR! YEY! So, this is the reason that draw me to read this book. I want to compare my junior life and the junior life of the protagonist of the book or I want to know if the things that happened in the book is also happening in my Junior life. Anyway, the point is I want to learn some lessons and enjoy the book.

2283657599 Days by: Katie Cotugno

“Day 1: Julia Donnelly eggs my house my first night back in Star Lake, and that’s how I know everyone still remembers everything—how I destroyed my relationship with Patrick the night everything happened with his brother, Gabe. How I wrecked their whole family. Now I’m serving out my summer like a jail sentence: Just ninety-nine days till I can leave for college, and be done.

Day 4: A nasty note on my windshield makes it clear Julia isn’t finished. I’m expecting a fight when someone taps me on the shoulder, but it’s just Gabe, home from college and actually happy to see me. “For what it’s worth, Molly Barlow,” he says, “I’m really glad you’re back.”

Day 12: Gabe got me to come to this party, and I’m actually having fun. I think he’s about to kiss me—and that’s when I see Patrick. My Patrick, who’s supposed to be clear across the country. My Patrick, who’s never going to forgive me”

I might die the plot killed it! IT IS A FREAKING LOVE TRIANGLE! I love to read books with love triangles because it is challenging and somehow heart breaking. I really love to break my own heart for this kind of books. See you soon in 99 days I guess?

18520642Proof of Forever by: Lexa Hillyer

“Before: It was the perfect summer of first kisses, skinny-dipping, and bonfires by the lake. Joy, Tali, Luce, and Zoe knew their final summer at Camp Okahatchee would come to an end, but they swore they’d stay friends.

After: Now, two years later, their bond has faded along with those memories.

Then: That is, until the fateful flash of a photo booth camera transports the four of them back in time, to the summer they were fifteen—the summer everything changed.

Now: The girls must recreate the past in order to return to the present. As they live through their second-chance summer, the mystery behind their lost friendship unravels, and a dark secret threatens to tear the girls apart all over again.”

Always: Summers end. But this one will change them forever.”

Another book about friendship horaay for this! Lots of people doesn’t believe in forever nowadays. Now if you ask me do I believe in forever? Well, my answer will depend when I already read this book. Kidding, anyway this book truly intrigued me if it can really prove forever to all of us. So, I’m excited to get this book and share it with my best friends.

18140047Love Letters to the Dead by: Ava Dellaira

“Laurel chooses Kurt Cobain because her sister, May, loved him. And he died young, just like May. Soon, Laurel has a notebook full of letters to the dead—to people like Janis Joplin, Heath Ledger, Amelia Earhart, and Amy Winehouse—though she never gives a single one of them to her teacher. She writes about starting high school, navigating the choppy waters of new friendships, learning to live with her splintering family, falling in love for the first time, and, most important, trying to grieve for May. But how do you mourn for someone you haven’t forgiven?

It’s not until Laurel has written the truth about what happened to herself that she can finally accept what happened to May. And only when Laurel has begun to see her sister as the person she was—lovely and amazing and deeply flawed—can she truly start to discover her own path.

In a voice that’s as lyrical and as true as a favorite song, Ava Dellaira writes about one girl’s journey through life’s challenges with a haunting and often heartbreaking beauty.”

The plot is complicated and that’s the certain reason why I’d like to have this book. I’ve read some reviews that says that it will break my emotions and my heart. I guess this book is somehow relatable so I go for this.

22864443The Secrets of Attraction by: Robin Constantine

“Madison Pryce thinks she’s got everything figured out—she’s working on a portfolio for a summer art program and hanging with her friends. Plus she has her hot boyfriend, Zach. But then a visit from a family friend turns Maddie’s life upside down.

Jesse McMann is still reeling from a breakup that shattered his heart and his band. Then pride (and some goading from his bass player and fellow barista) forces him to find a new drummer—and the inspiration to write music again.

Kismet arrives in the unlikely form of Grayson Barrett, who tries out for Jesse’s band, and whose girlfriend is BFFs with the cute girl who orders a chai latte after yoga every Thursday: Maddie. What Jesse and Maddie thought they knew about the secrets of attraction and the rules of romance changes once they start falling for each other.”

Cliche love story again? Whatever I’ll still read this book though all books are unique.

18160600CITY LOVE by: Susane Colasanti

“Sadie, Darcy, and Rosanna are living together in New York City the summer before their freshman year of college begins. With no parents, no rules, and an entire city to explore, these three girls are on the verge of the best summer of their lives.

Sadie is a native New Yorker. She is hopeful, romantic, and an eternal optimist who is ready to find her soul mate. Then she meets her dream boy: cute, funny, and quirky in all the right ways. The chemistry between them is unreal. Could he be the one?

Darcy is a free spirit from SoCal with rebellious tendencies and unlimited financial resources. Moving to New York City is just another adventure for her. Darcy wants this summer to be all about boy adventures—nothing serious. But how much fun is too much?

Rosanna leaves Chicago for NYC so she can put her past behind her and reinvent herself. The only thing standing in her way is the grand total of seventy-three cents she has saved. Then she meets a guy who wants to show her the glamorous side of New York—a side that she would never get to experience on her own. If Rosanna doesn’t resist, she may find herself in city love.”

Another book about friendship however there’s some plot twist because they all find there love lives in New York? Hmmm… this sounds fun and interesting and that’s why I need to have this book immediately!

Phew! Honestly guys I still have lots of contemporary novels that I want to buy and read someday as in lots! However I’m running out of time and I guess my list of contemporary novels to read is infinite.

I’ll be having a part two about this post pretty soon!
