    Here's my F&F!

  3. I am new to this genre so I haven't heard of any of these books. I wrote down the titles for future use. Have a great weekend.

  5. I usually like more light and fluffy contemporaries, like Stephanie Perkins and Kasie West, but you have listed some of my favorite "heavier" contemporaries. Easy…LOVE THAT BOOK!!! And What Happens Next…I was surprised by how much I liked that book. And The Sky Is Everywhere…just beautiful. I still need to read I'll Give You the Sun. Have you read How to Love? I think you'd really like it. Great list! ~Pam

    1. I just love contemporary--all the contemporary. I love realistic fiction I think that's what draws me to the genre. I haven't read How to Love yet but it's on my TBR...maybe soon!
