Top Ten Contemporary Books We Love (For Different Reasons)

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week's Top Ten list is "Top Ten Contemporary Books We Love (For Different Reasons)".

So, we struggled a bit with this week's TTT. We haven't really read that may books that would fit the mold for required reading. So instead, we deviated a bit.

books that send an important message

books that tell a beautiful story with a bit of history

books that tell a different story

What are your top ten?


  1. I like how you've approached the Top Ten topic this week. It was a tough one! I have The Book Thief on my list this week. I think it does hold an important message!

  2. I agree, this week was a tough one. I like that you picked books that send an important message, that would be great to spark discussion. I had The Book Thief on my list too, what an awesome book! I still need to read Code Name Verity, I've heard great things about it. ~Pam

  3. LOVE your list!! Like I can't even begin to talk about all the love I have for Thirteen Reasons Why and Code Name Verity and The Book Thief. Beautiful! Love how you broke your list down!! :)

  4. Ohhh, If you find me is a good pick! And of course The book thief <3 Wouldn't it be great when everyone knows this book? It's so so good.

  5. We read Thirteen Reasons Why in my high school! I also think they were adding The Book Thief, but that would've been after I graduated. I totally agree with CNV. I can see that fitting in a lot of different classes, and it's such an impactful book.

  6. Great theme! I'm so glad to see This Song Will Save Your Life. I just finished it yesterday and thought it was such an important story!

  7. I was tempted to put The Book Thief because it is one of my favourite books, but I didn't because I swear I chose this every week! I have a lot of the books you've chosen on my TBR list - I need to get reading them! New Bloglovin' follower

    Happy Tuesday!
    My TTT

  8. So many good books on your list! I totally agree!
