Books We'd Recommend For Valentine's Day; Thoughtful Thursday

It's Valentine's week, and the book love is in the air. For whatever reason, when I think of Valentine's and books, I automatically think of contemporary books. Today's Thoughtful Thursday is a list of 14 of our favorite YA contemporary books Sophie & I recommend picking up this Valentine's Day. In no order:

  1. Meant To Be by Lauren Morrill
  2. This Is What Happy Looks Like by Jennifer E Smith
  3. Anna & The French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins
  4. The Statistically Probability of Love At First Site by Jennifer E Smith
  5. Lola & The Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins
  6. Crash Into You by Katie McGarry
  7. In Honor by Jessi Kirby
  8. Golden by Jessi Kirby
  9. Bittersweet by Sarah Ockler 
  10. The Fine Art of Truth or Dare by Melissa Jensen
  11. My Life Next Door by Huntley Fitzpatrick
  12. Where She Went by Gayle Forman
  13. Going Vintage by Lindsey Leavitt
  14. Just One Day by Gayle Forman
As you can probably tell we have a weakness for Jennifer E Smith, Stephanie Perkins, Jessi Kirby and Gayle Forman books. I realize there are a lot of fabulous contemps missing from this list, and that's because they're all sitting in my TBR pile. Hopefully I'll have them read soon. 

I would love to know what contempts you'd add to this list. What are some of your favorite contempts? What contempts would you like to see featured here on Mundie Moms?


  1. Wow what a great post, I love recommendations. I have some of these and I've definitely heard of most of them.

    1. Thank you! This was such a fun post to come up with. I hope you enjoy picking up a few of the books. :)

  2. The Statistical Probability... was such a cute read! Another great Valentine's read is The Distance Between us by Kasie West! So good. That's our book club book tonight. Woohoo!

  3. I am completely in love with "Wait for You" by J. Lynn. Swoon...
