Top Ten Tuesday – Realistic Contemporary Reading List

Posted August 22, 2017 by Andi in Top 10 Tuesday / 3 Comments

I was originally going to skip today’s Back to School freebie for Top Ten Tuesday. But then I started to think about it and I thought about how many amazing realistic contemporary books I’ve read over the last 7 or so years and it made me realize there should be a reading list of this in high schools for kids. These books deal with school shootings, abuse, date rape, mental illness and more. They are all things that I think high schoolers should know about and be able to read about. So here is my list of 10 Realistic Contemporaries that should be on a reading list for teens:

What We Saw || Every Last Word || When We Collided || Faking Normal || What Happens Next

If I Lie || Shine || Hate List || Bad Romance || Thirteen Reasons Why


What do you think should belong on a realistic contemporary reading list for high school kids? Have you read of of these?

*Top Ten Tuesday is brought to you by The Broke and the Bookish
