Top 5 Wednesday| Hey! Look! It's the Sun!

Top 5 Wednesday is a weekly blog group that come together to discuss that weeks topic. The idea was first curated by the wonderful Lainey at GingerReadLainey and is now run by Samantha over on ThoughtsonTomes. 

If you wish to participate, either on your Blog or Booktube channel then, please, join the group on Goodreads for all the relevant topics.

This week is all about the books that we either want to read this summer, or the books that connote the season. I'm choosing the latter, a post featuring the books I want to read this summer will up later in the week!

For me, Summer is to read all the UKYA contemporaries that I have missed out on because of University deadlines. I tend to get through them in about four hours, so they make light for a quick read.

I am going to recommend 5 of my favourite YA contemporaries that I think you should check out this summer. 

1. I Was Born for This by Alice Oseman

This one was a recent read, and possibly my favourite on this list. This book was so casually diverse with fandom routed to it's core. Fantastic characters, and the anxiety rep really struck a cord.

2. The Exact Opposite of Okay by Laura Steven

You'll notice that I like the books that have a good heart and a good humor to them. TEOOO is one of them and you all need to check it out and read it. 

3. Editing Emma by Chloe Seager

L-O-L funny and the sequel, Friendship Fails of Emma Nash (OUT August 9th), is equally as good.  

4. A Quiet Kind of Thunder by Sara Barnard

Sara's books just grip at my heart and don't let go. All I'm going to leave here is the tagline:
Steffi doesn't talk, but she has so much to say.
Rhys can't hear, but he can listen.
Their love isn't a lightning strike, it's the rumbling roll of thunder.

5. Unconventional by Maggie Harcourt

This was just fluffy and fun! With the added bonus of a cameo from Melinda Salisbury, author of The Sin Eater's Daughter and State of Sorrow.
