Good morning, good afternoon, good evening friends! How are you today? I hope you had a good week, and a wonderful Sunday. Today’s post is going to be kind of different, and I surely hope you will enjoy it…to see whether or not I can continue with it.
As you all know by now – and if you don’t, well…now you’ll know, I am a huge contemporary reader. It used to be, by far, my favorite genre, though fantasy is coming to a close second with magical realism since I started blogging and discovered wonderful books. But hey, I’m disgressing a bit here. In my first post of the year, I mentioned that I wanted to get more into talking about my favorite genre, and here is born my newest feature…
The YA contemporary corner is a little feature here to recommend you all the contemporary books you NEED to read. Well, if you want to, obviously. I have no idea whether it’ll take place a lot of the time or not, for now, this is a first try, so I’m looking forward to your thoughts on it!
Today’s theme is Best Siblings! Obviously this is a theme I hold close to my heart because my sister is by far the best person in the whole universe. Click on the book covers to be redirected to Goodreads.
Three books with great siblings
To All The Boys I Loved Before, because besides being a cute and sweet contemporary you can devour in an afternoon if you’re into this kind of story, is has some of the greatest sisterhood dynamics. Kitty’s adorable and I just love how she felt part of the story all along, despite the book not being about her story.
A List of Cages, because it’s a recent release and even if they’re not really linked by blood, this bond between these two boys got me wanting to hug them badly, really badly. Trigger warning for this series though, so beware.

I’ll Give You The Sun, because let’s be honest, I could not NOT mention this book. There are all the complexities of a siblings’ relationship in this, how they grow apart and stronger and back together, and it’s told with brilliance and easily is one of the greatest books out there.

Strong bonds here, but…beware of the tears
I couldn’t NOT do this little category to mention two books I hold close to my heart. They are about siblings relationships and how strong and important they can be in someone’s life. Beautiful stories here you should read but with a box of tissues by your side. NOT advised in public, like I did.

BONUS: the non-contemporary siblings worth mentioning
Because it’s one of my favorite series of all times, and Mara and Daniel’s relationship is great.
