The Ultimate YA Contemporary Book Recommendations List | A List of 51 Books!

The number of times people have asked me for a YA cute, fluffy book rec is infinite (not really, but you get my point).

And I am tired of typing the same old list over and over and over and over and over again.

Hey everyone! Welcome or welcome back to my blog!

Today I’ll be sharing a list of cute, fluffy YA contemporary book recommendations. It’s going to be a long, long list, therefore it’s just going to be a list, and I am not attaching any pictures, nor am I adding the blurbs. What I am doing is that I am linking the books to their Goodreads so that you can check them out one by one. I won’t be sharing my rating for them, since these are totally recommendations and like, all of them are perfect for just destressing. Obviously though, I liked some more than the others, but since all of our reading tastes aren’t similar, you may not like the same books as I do. So, um, yeah.

Also, most of them have some degree of romance in them, and some also deal with heavier topics, so if you do read them, check the TW once. But, you’ll have a good time reading these, I assure you.

Also, I don’t know why but I feel like giving a pitch, so here I am, giving one, lol.

Ever run out of material to read? Ever felt that you shouldn’t read a book just because you’re in the middle of exams? Ever felt that you are tired of reading heavy books and just want to read fluff? Fret not, because I have the perfect recommendations list for you! Be it a slump, exam stress or just plain running out of material to read, refer this list to cure your problem!

Have you read any of these books? Are they on your TBR? Are there any books you feel should’ve been added to the list? Let me know in the comments!

P.S.-1: I know my posts haven’t been the best lately- pretty average, and nothing unique, and I apologize, but I promise to make better posts once I am freer.

P.S.-2: I am also sorry for not being active on the blogosphere- I am reading you guys’ posts, and even liking them, but I am sorry for not commenting, I am sadly swamped with work 😦

P.S.-3: Please forgive any errors since I am literally posting this at 4:20 A.M. in the morning.

  1. When I saw that the first two entries of your list were Fangirl and Turtles All the Way Down, you’d already convinced me that all these recommendations were bound to be epic! 🤩 And since I’ve only read about 13,7% of them, you bet I’ll be returning to this list in stressful exam times!

    Also, Riddhi – you don’t have to apologize for having a lot on your plate at the moment! Trust me, we get it! If you have to post less or don’t get around to reading or commenting on our posts, that’s just life and we wouldn’t ever blame you for focusing on that! 💙
