The book gods have finally heard my pleas and cries, and 2017 is a possibly the year of adorable, cheesy goodness filling the shelves of YA. Um, do you know excited this Book Princess is for that?
Anyway, I know I just made a post about all the books that I need for sure to read in 2017 – and not just the 2017 releases. However, this Book Princess needs the fluff. And here are some 2017 YA contemporaries that certainly are bringing the fluff and cheesy goodness to a book neighborhood near you!
By Your Side by Kasie West
This is coming out at the end of the month, and I already got my pre-order game on for it! It’s a book about two teeens getting locked in a library for a weekend, and of course, written by one of the YA contemporary goddesses, Kasie West. The fluff is surely going to be real with this one, and I mean, being locked in a library for a weekend? I don’t even need the cute guy to sell me on this!
#Famous by Jilly Gagnon
This is kind of a take on that whole Target Alex thing where a girl takes a picture of a boy, saying how cute he is and next thing you know, it’s a viral sensation. I’m hoping for some major fluffy humor and cuteness between these two, because I mean, look how cute that cover is and it just screams, fluff.
The Truth About Happily Ever After by Karole Cozzo
Okay, this is definitely my most anticipated adorable, cheesy goodness novel for 2017. It combines princesses and theme parks – two of my ultimate loves – and equals out to a perfect summer read. It reminds me of How Zoe Made Her Dreams (Mostly) Come True or Dream Factory, which did have a perfect blend of romance and cheese. I’m hoping this will finally fill the void these books left in my life and just brings on the perfect blend of fluff and humor!
When Dimple Met Rishi by Sandhya Menon
While there has been quite a few diverse contemporaries in the past few years, this year, there is certainly quite a few more hitting the shelves including this adorable rom-com about two teens whose parents have arranged marriage for them. It seems adorable, and Rishi is meant to be wooing Dimple…am I the only one hoping for some funny encounters for this? A lot of hopes and dreams for fluff are being put into this book.
Geekerella: A Fangirl Fairy Tale by Ashley Poston
I’m not really sure I need to say more. Cinderella, fangirling, and geeky goodness? Yeah, fluff to the extreme, and I’m not sure my Book Princess heart can take it if this turns out to be as epic as it sounds.
Just Friends by Tiffany Pitcock
Smart goody-two-shoes girl is best friends with the playboy heartbreaker is a trope that has been around forever, so this book is definitely not bringing anything new to the YA contemporary section. However, this trope is usually one I enjoy with the whole best-friends-to-lovers thing, so I definitely don’t mind adding another one to the TBR.
Coming up for Air by Miranda Kenneally
This book sounds just plain adorable and like the perfect summer read. I’ve been pushing myself off from reading it since I was approved for it on Netgalley to keep myself from getting too excited for summer.This will be my first Miranda Kenneally novel, and I’ve seen a lot of mixed reviews on her stuff. The premise of an dedicated swimmer trying to get some last minute senior school goodness was just too cute to pass up.
Wesley James Ruined My Life by Jennifer Honeybourn
Medieval themed restaurant and enemies-to-lover trope? Sign me up! Swoon Reads usually has some perfectly cheesy romance reads, and I’m guessing this book is definitely not going to be an exception. It seems like super fluff, and I really am liking the medieval themed addition…although I’m hoping the camper in the cover isn’t the restaurant. That would just be awkward on their part…well, their fake part since the owners don’t exist.
And last, but certainly not least, I Believe in a Thing Called Love by Maurene Goo
Again, major yay for diversity, and this book that features a girl trying to impress a boy with Korean dramas knowledge. It sounds adorable, and the Korean dramas addition means there is definitely going to be some major humor involved. I can’t wait for this book to get here, because it sounds like just the right amount of humor and fluff (it already boosts a broody artist, fake car crashes, and boat rescues in the summary). I can feel the squeals already.
2017 is going to be such a great year for books, and these YA contemporaries are certainly adding to that. I simply cannot wait for these, and I’m already feeling the very intense feels. Ugh, why must the wait be so long for some of these. My fangirl heart can’t take it.
So, are you excited for any of these? Are they on your TBR…or possibly being added right this very minute? What fluffy books are you excited for? And by chance, if you read any of these yet? Let’s please discuss in the comments below, because my fangirling is at an ultimate high!
