  1. Can I just say ALL OF THEM?! I know it’s cheating but I so love books. There’s a specific one I’m dying for though….the one about lists, and the title is SO long I probably will mess it up, but I think it’s Me Being You Is Exactly Insane As You Being You. (?!) ANYWAY IT SOUNDS SO GOOD. XD

  2. This is such a cool giveaway! I personally love reading YA contemporary romance novels. I’ve heard about P.S. I Still Love You, and I really want to read it. A lot of the other romance novels I haven’t heard of but they do all look really good. :)

  3. I’m so excited for The Fill In Boyfriend. My favorite contemporary books are Stephanie Perkins’ books.

  4. I’m really excited for so many of these! I got to read an ARC of Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda and it is AWESOME. I’m probably most excited for The Summer of Chasing Mermaids, Emmy & Oliver, The Night We Said Yes, and The Start of Me and You.

    I still need to read To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before; I already own a copy of that and need to read it soon so I can enjoy the sequel when it comes out!

  5. I’m excited about Tonight the Streets are Ours, P.S. I Still Love you, and Things We Know by Heart. I don’t read a whole lot of contemporary romance type books, but I really like TATBILB.

  6. I’m most looking forward to P.S. I Still Love You by Jenny Han and The Night We Said Yes by Lauren Gibaldi. Favourite YA contemporary romance is To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han and Isla and the Happily Ever After by Stephanie Perkins

  7. I’m looking forward to Never Always Sometimes, 99 Days…. who am I kidding I am looking forward to them all! This is my favourite genre! I Loved Just One Day by Gayle Forman and The Trouble with Flying by Rachel Morgan. Thank you for the giveaway!

  8. I am super excited for “P.S. I Still Love You” by Jenny Han! I adored “To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before,” and I can’t wait to see where Jenny Han takes Lara Jean’s and Peter’s relationship.
    Contemporary romances: “Dare You To” and “Crash Into You” by Katie McGarry, and “To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before” are my three most favorite contemporary YA romances!
    Thanks for the giveaway!

  9. I’m really really excited for PS. I Still Love you, so obviously I loved the first one. Since You’ve Been Gone by Morgan Matson is another favourite of mine. And The Art of Lainey!

  10. Basically all I read is contemporary because it’s just the best! (in my opinion) I LOVED The Start of Me and You by Emery Lord. Lauren Morrill wrote one of my fav contemps ever with Meant to Be so I’m super excited for her new one. Adi Alsaid. Enough said. I WANT ALL THE BOOKS! Such an exciting year, book wise. Oh, and any year that has a new Jennnifer E. Smith novel is a good year. Let’s Get Lost, Open Road Summer, MORGAN MATSON’S WRITING are a few of my favorites.

  11. I love ya contemporary romance. I have the majority of the books you have pictured above on my wishlist and a few I didn’t know about that I will add to my tbr/wish list.

  12. I am dying for Simon Vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda! I haven’t read a lot in this genre, I’m a newbie. Does All the Bright Places count because I loved it!

  13. Best giveaway! I’m looking forward to so many of these titles, but the one I haven’t read that I want to get my hands on is Jesse’s Girl. (P.S. I Still Love You is a close runner-up!)

  14. I’m really looking forward to The Fill in Boyfriend, The Start of Me & You, 99 Days, Joyride. You’ve got great selections. Thank you for the amazing giveaway. Happy Valentine’s Day!

  15. Which YA Contemporary Romance am I NOT looking forward to is the question. ;)

    I’m dying for Hello I Love You, Tonight These Streets Are Ours, Finding Mr. Brightside,The Fill-In Boyfriend and Simon VS. The Homo Sapiens Agenda. Mostly that last one though. :)

    Great giveaway Hazel.

  16. I can’t wait to read The Start of Me and You! I can’t say that I’m excited for P.S. I Love You because I haven’t read the first book yet :x I really liked Meant to Be by Lauren Morrill … and Open Road Summer, of course. I tend to read a lot of contemporary romance!

  17. I’m most excited to P.S. I Still Love You by Jenny Han and The Fill-In Boyfriend by Kasie West. Favorite YA contemporary romance are Isla and the Happily Ever After by Stephanie Perkins and Since you’ve been gone by Morgan Matson.

    It´s hard to say what my favourite books in the genre are, but one good book is The Trouble with Flying by Rachel Morgan.

  21. They’re all see so pretty and interesting,how can a person just pick one?!?
    I can’t wait for all of the to come out!!!

  22. There are SO MANY. I think highest among them is Erin Entrada Kelly’s Blackbird Fly and Simon and the Homosapien Agenda. I just finished My Heart and Other Black Holes by Jasmine Warga which was absolutely devastating and am now working through Red Rising and an ARC of My Best Everything, both of which are delightful in very different ways.

  23. I’d really love 99 Days or Simon v. Homo Sapiens Agenda!
    There are too many to choose from but deffo Stephanie Perkins’ books.

  24. I love contemporary romance! Those books are just awesome, and I can’t wait to read all of them! I can’t really pick any of them which I’m most excited for… to be honest :3 It’s too hard to choose.

  39. Everything looks so exciting! Never Always Sometimes seems a whole lot interesting, though. Excited for that!

    Absolutely love YA romance! Recently read Katie Cotugno’s How To Love, a lot of David Levithan and Rainbow Rowell!

  40. What a great giveaway! :D I’m really looking forward to Joyride because I’ve heard great things about it! Pretty sure someone I follow cried.
    A random contemporary favourite of mine is IT’S KIND OF A FUNNY STORY by Ned Vizzini. :) Other than that, all that’s mainstream: John Green, Rainbow Rowell, Gayle Forman, David Levithan, Morgan Matson…

  41. I’m really looking forward to Joyride, because I loved Anna Banks’ previous books. Also really expecting PS.I Still Love You and Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda. Some of my favorite contemporary romances include all of Rainbow Rowell’s books and Jeniffer Echols’ Biggest Flirts.

  42. I’m looking forward to P.S. I Still Love You and Things We Know by Heart, also Simon and the Homo Sapiens Agenda (because awesome title). Some of my favorites are well, obviously, To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before, anything and everything by Rainbow Rowell, Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe.

  43. You don’t have it listed above (maybe because there’s no cover for it), but I am most looking forward to THE BOY MOST LIKELY TO by Huntley Fitzpatrick!! Who also writes my favorite book in this genre MY LIFE NEXT DOOR! (I love Jase Garrett!!)

    Another one you don’t have listed and I can’t wait for is THE SECRETS OF ATTRACTION by Robin Constantine. I also can’t wait for THE FILL-IN BOYFRIEND and HELLO, GOODBYE AND EVERYTHING IN BETWEEN.

  44. CANNOT WAIT FOR JENNY HAN’S! Her words honestly are one of the wittiest and best I’ve ever read and I’m so glad I had the privilege of reading her books!

  45. Man so many choices! I think I’d go with Love, Fortunes, and Disasters – I really enjoy magical realism!

  46. I am really excited for Jenny Han’s P.S. I Still Love You and my favorite contemporary novel is A Little Something Different!

  47. the book i’m most excited for in this list is ‘i still love you’ by jenny han! i didn’t enjoyed ‘to all the boys i’ve loved before’ as much because i thought it was a standalone and i wanted moreee (like most contemporaries…) but now that i know there actually IS more, i’m SO EXCITED! some of my favorite contemporary reads are fangirl, anna and the french kiss series, just one day, and the last goes on..

  48. I’m looking forward with Confess by Colleen Hoover. :DD ANd my fave was All Stephanie Perkins’s books. Anna and the French Kiss, Lola and the boy next door and Isla and the happily ever after.

  49. Can I just have them all?? Being too greedy right there!!! Those books really look interesting, but the book that I am most excited about is Jenny Han’s “P.S. I Still Love you”.

  50. I love Kasie West. So anything by her would be good. I also enjoy Rainbow Rowell. Oddly the only Stephanie Perkins I really liked was “Lola and the Boy Next Door.” I didn’t really care for “Anna” or “Isla” but I loved “Lola” so much I’ll gladly read whatever Perkins puts out next. I haven’t read Jenny Han but her work might be worth a shot.

  51. at last! I am so hoping to have Simon vs. The Homo Sapiens Agenda!! Epic Reads on Goodreads rated it with 5 stars and I am so curious I want to have one. Thank you very much!

  52. What a wonderful giveaway! So many good books, but I must say I am looking forward to Jessie’s Girl the most. I love the Hundred Oaks series.

  53. I think this is the first time that I’ve been excited for literally ALL of the books available! It’s so hard to pick, but I think I’m most looking forward to Things We Know by Heart.
    Some of my faves are anything by Kasie West, Morgan Matson, and Emery Lord. They write the best characters and fun banter between love interests ;)

  54. So many great books are coming out! I’ve just recently gotten back into reading YA Contemporary Romance, I’m a Fantasy girl at heart but lately have found myself reaching for something more grounded and light-hearted!
    Two books that I’m looking forward to are The Start of Me and You (I’m finishing Open Road Summer and love it!) and Simon vs. The Homo Sapiens Agenda.

  55. Too many good books! I’m looking forward to Jesse’s Girl. My favorite contemporary YA romance is probably If I Stay. :) Amazing giveaway!
