Top 10 of 2012 ~ Best Contemporaries Of 2012

I couldn't decide what subject to pick! I was going to do top paranormal books but then I'd be here all day trying to cut them down. I am so terrible at top ten lists. Since I ventured into a lot of new genres this year and finally found contemporary books that I enjoy I decided to do my favorite contemporaries!

~Best Contemporaries Of 2012~

Graffiti Moon

The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight

My Life Next Door

Such a Rush


The Future of Us
Release Nov 2011 but I just discovered it and loved it! I am such a fan of best friend romances and the idea of seeing your future facebook page was too fun!

My Life in Black and White


The Boys of Summer (Summer Series, #1)
Just finished this yesterday and it must make the list!

White Lines
This one isn't out till April but since I read it this year and was so impressed I had to throw it on here!

Catching Jordan (Hundred Oaks, #1)   Stealing Parker (Hundred Oaks, #2)
After Catching Jordan I knew I had to get my hands on Miranda's 2012 release Stealing Parker.

The Duff: Designated Ugly Fat Friend   Shut Out   A Midsummer's Nightmare
A Midsummer's Nightmare is Kody's 2012 release but I actually read all three of these in three days so I wanted to feature them all.

Leave links to your posts!


  1. Great list, Jen!

    I loved Graffiti Moon, one of the best one there is :) I also enjoyed a lot Kody K's books, they're so much fun :) although still haven't read the last one & I liked The St.Prob... it was sweet :) I definitely need to read the rest on your list!
