I'm back!!!! Miss me?
Top Ten Tuesday is a terrific meme hosted by the group at the Broke and Bookish Blog.
I have always loved contemporary books the most. I love longing for the romance, meeting characters facing similar problems as me, reading the relax writing style and laughing over the humorous moments. Contemporary stories will always make me happy after a stressful day.
Cabot was my childhood. Every time I re-read The Princess Diaries books, Teen Idol and others, I immediately sink into the story.
Kunze wrote my favorite book of 2011. She was the first author to talk to me on twitter. I immediately bonded over the crafty, educated writing style, sweet characters and the uncontrollable laughing fits I gain reading her books.
Technically Shepard is both a mystery and contemporary genre, but I think Shepard's wonderful and addicting books encompass everything I admire in contemporary fiction. Also, she created Thayer Vega. There are only two characters I crush on in books and he is one of them. Need more Thayer moments STAT.
I absolutely adore his Drama series. His books perfectly show the joy of taking part in a high school Drama Club. I am a happy thespian in my high school's drama club and I cannot imagine being the vivacious person I am today without participating in drama club and reading Ruditis books. They reveal there is more to drama then just acting. There is the friendships, the memorable late night rehearsals and so much more. Also, the main character becomes a student director in the last book!
Again, Moriarty's books, like Sara Shepard's, dive into the mystery genre, but they dwell in all the experiences of high school students. The Murder of Bindy Mackenzie will always remain my favorite of Moriarty's book. Moriarty will always remain my favorite Australian author. Her stories are gripping, exciting and incomparable.
Walker's Violet series is sweet and the perfect leisure read. Also, it shares the world of modeling in a realistic way. Violet and Rob are two easy characters to adore.
Another contemporary/mystery author. Just establishes the truth. My favorite books compose of both a contemporary setting and an enthralling mystery. Brian's Private and Privilege series are amazing and must read series. Maybe you can even start by reading Untouchable. Untouchable was my first Kate Brian book.
Calonita's Secrets of My Hollywood LIfe are just marvelous. Kaitlin is the perfect maturing main character and reading her life unfold is a terrific ride.
Millicent Min, Stanford and Emily are three amazing characters that I always enjoy going back to. The genius, the jock and the bubbly girl are so much more then stereotypical. Through Yee's trilogy of one book for each character, you are given the chance to see these three grow, discover the hardships of lying and deal with there own unique dilemmas.
Green is a special guy who is unafraid to take risks. His books show life in a way that no other author can do.
Now something special for my first time back.
Her name is Calliandra after two of my favorite characters.
Thanks for reading!!!!!!!
