50/50 Friday - Favorite/Least Favorite Book in the Contemporary Genre

This fun meme is hosted by myself and Laura from Blue Eye Books every Friday. Come join us!

What is 50/50 Friday? 
Everyone has a favorite and then we also have something we dislike. Like a coin, there are two sides to every question. Example: best sequel you've read/worst sequel you've read.

Topic for the Week
Favorite/Least favorite book in the ____ genre (choice genre)

So I've chosen Contemporary because it was the easier for me. I don't read that much of this genre so I have clear winners and clear losers. So let's jump into it!

Least Favorite 
This was just too fluffy and too light and it felt fake at times. I just didn't like it that much.

Paper Princess
I love how gritty this is, I real it is. Teens act like this and I loved that. Yeah there are some parts that are unrealistic but it was mainly in the beginning and once past that I loved the characters. 

Topic for Next Week
World you'd like/not like to live in 


  1. Ah yes, Kasie West writes the epitome of fluffy contemporary. While I love reading her books from time to time (especially after a particularly dark book that I want to take my mind off of) they are a bit like cotton candy, aren't they? I haven't had a chance to read Paper Princess yet but I've heard such great things about it! I'll get to it eventually :) Great picks, Carrie!

  2. For some reason I thought Paper Princess was a fantasy novel! I think it's the cover. I thought it was a light fluffy fantasy...looks like I'm wrong!

  3. I haven't read any of these, but I do want to try Kasie West one of these days. :)
