On My Wishlist: YA Contemporary
Since reading novels like Saving June, Dash & Lily’s Book of Dares, and books by John Green, I’ve really started to enjoy the YA contemporary genre, especially when it’s intelligent, funny, and heartbreaking. Here are just some of the ones on my wishlist:

Meant to Be by Lauren Morrill
Published in November. “Julia’s rules are about to get defenestrated (SAT word: to be thrown from a window) when she’s partnered with her personal nemesis, class-clown Jason, on a school trip to London.”

Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins
The companion novel to Anne and the French Kiss. “When Cricket—a gifted inventor and engineer—steps out from his twin sister’s shadow and back into Lola’s life, she must finally reconcile a lifetime of feelings for the boy next door.”

Amy and Roger’s Epic Detour by Morgan Matson
What’s not to love about road trips? “Told in traditional narrative as well as scraps from the road–diner napkins, motel receipts, postcards–this is the story of one girl’s journey to find herself.”

If I Stay by Gayle Forman
I’ve heard that this is a beautiful story. “Seventeen-year-old Mia has no memory of the accident; she can only recall riding along the snow-wet Oregon road with her family. Then, in a blink, she finds herself watching as her own damaged body is taken from the wreck…”

My Life Next Door by Huntley Fitzpatrick
Published in June. “A gorgeous debut about family, friendship, first romance, and how to be true to one person you love without betraying another.”

Twenty Boy Summer by Sarah Ockler
I really want to see why this was banned! “According to her best friend Frankie, twenty days in ZanzibarBay is the perfect opportunity to have a summer fling. Anna lightheartedly agrees to the game, but there’s something she hasn’t told Frankie—she’s already had that kind of romance, and it was with Frankie’s older brother, Matt, just before his tragic death one year ago.”

Honourable mentions: Jellicoe Road, The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks, Before I Die, Fall for Anything.

From My Wishlist: Books Published in 2013
I’m sure there are many more wonderful books that I don’t know about yet that are published this year, but I thought I’d tell you a little about some of the ones that are already on my wishlist.

Just One Day by Gayle Forman
Out now. I am very much into young adult contemporary fiction lately, especially approaching the warmer days. Its companion novel, Just One Year, is published in October. ‘When sheltered American good girl Allyson first meets laid-back Dutch actor Willem, there’s an undeniable spark. After just one day together, that spark bursts into a flame, or so it seems to Allyson, until the following morning, when she wakes up after a whirlwind day in Paris to discover that Willem has left.’

The Tragedy Paper by Elizabeth LaBan
Out now. I saw The Tragedy Paper being compared to John Green, which instantly made me curious. ‘Tim Macbeth is a 17-year-old albino and a recent transfer to the prestigious Irving School… He finds himself falling for the quintessential “it” girl, Vanessa Sheller, girlfriend of Irving’s most popular boy.’ Check out the book trailer here.

Out of the Easy by Ruta Sepetys
Out now. Between Shades of Gray is easily one of my absolute favourite novels. Will Out of the Easy live up to my expectations? ‘Set against the vivid backdrop of 1950s New Orleans… this novel has something for everyone: love, mystery, murder, blackmail and warmth.’

Awakening by Karen Sandler
Published April. I haven’t been reading as many young adult science fiction/dystopian novels as I used to, but I cannot wait to read Awakening because Tankborn was a surprise favourite of 2011. I really enjoyed following the story of Kayla and Mishalla, two Genetically Engineered Non-humans (GENs).

The Crane Wife by Patrick Ness
Published April. Patrick Ness. That is all there is to say. ‘Wise, romantic, magical and funny, The Crane Wife is a hymn to the creative imagination and a celebration of the disruptive and redemptive power of love’.

Vortex by S.J. Kincaid
Published July. Insignia is one of my favourite science fiction novels – a high concept story, action packed, and full of intergalactic fighting with robots – and this highly anticipated sequel promises no less. ‘The second book in S.J. Kincaid’s futuristic World War III Insignia trilogy continues to explore fascinating and timely questions about power, politics, technology, loyalty, and friendship.’

Also on my list so far: Golden,17 & Gone, More Than This, Unsouled, Undone, Paper Aeroplanes, Transparent, Isla and the Happily Ever After.
