Top Ten Tuesday: Favorite Contemporary Authors

This week's Top Ten Tuesday prompt is asking who our favorite authors are for a certain genre. Since I've been branching out into adult contemps, I thought I'd compile a list of my favorite contemporary authors -- both YA & Adult.  Check out The Broke and the Bookish for more details on this awesome weekly feature.

This Week's Top 10: Favorite Contemporary Authors

1. Jennifer Echols - Going Too Far, Endless Summer, Forget You, Such a Rush
2. Jill Shalvis - Lucky Harbor series
3. Tara Kelly - Harmonic Feedback, Amplified
4. John Green - Looking for Alaska, The Fault in Our Stars
5. Kirsty Eagar - Raw Blue, Night Beach
6. Jenny Han - The Summer I Turned Pretty series
7. Trish Doller - Something Like Normal, All That Was Lost
8. Melina Marchetta - Saving Francesca, The Piper's Son
9. Gayle Forman - If I Stay, Where She Went
10. Megan McCafferty - Jessica Darling series

I could probably add at least a dozen more!  All authors are linked to their goodreads pages & the book titles listed are the ones I've read by them.


  1. Only 2 Australians? I am disappointed in you, G :P

  2. Hehe. Definitely Megan McCafferty's ;)

    Here's my Top 10

  3. I love Echols, Han and Foreman, too. I haven't read any Green yet. I don't know what I am waiting for! I also picked up the first book in the Lucky Harbor series, thanks to your review! Can't wait to read it. Great list!

  4. And I'm officially not surprised by a single one of these! <3

  5. Love your list! I should definitely read more contemporary! I always love them :)

    My TTT

  6. Great list! This one was a hard one to pick only 10 for. I only recently got into contemporary so I will have to give a lot of these authors a shot. Here is my TTT.

  7. Great list... I knew you'd have a great contemporary authors list this week :) I love the Jessica Darling stuff... and really want to read Saving Francesca (im into these Aussie authors now!). I'm reading Burn for Burn right now, so Jenny Han is becoming one of my new favs!

    Here's My TTT :)

  8. Definitely agree on Jennifer Echols! My list would also include Julie James, Kristan Higgins and Stephanie Perkins.

  9. I usually visit your blog when I want good contemp recommendations, since we usually end up having the same taste in books. LOVE your picks this week! I need to get started on the Jessica Darling series and Gayle Forman's books...
