Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by the lovely people over at The Broke & The Bookish.
This week’s topic:  FREEBIE! aka Choose your own topic. Since today is my birthday I chose to share some Coming of Age novels!
  16101168 99561  3af15-wgwg
  1. The Beginning of Everything by Robyn Schneider: This is a recently read book for me and it has become my favorite. I’M OBSESSED. It captures ‘Coming of Age’ brilliantly.
  2. The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky: This is a pretty obvious one. Charlie’s just starting high school and he’s figuring it out. Loved this one.
  3. Lola and the Boy Next Door  by Stephanie Perkins – Lola’s in high school and trying to figure herself out. She’s quirky and unique. This is a cute contemporary and perfect for Coming of Age.
  4. Looking for Alaska by John Green: Some kids starting boarding school, discovering new things…
  5. Will Grayson, Will Grayson by John Green and David Levithan: Will Grayson, OWG, Tiny, etc. They’re all figuring themselves out; relationships, high school.
  6. Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell: Cath is beginning college. A new door is open.
  7. The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton: CLASSIC COMING OF AGE.
  8. This is Where I Leave You by Jonathan Tropper: This is an Adult coming of age for all the characters.
  9. Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli: Are you surprised  this is here..? No explanation needed. IMO.
  10. The Glass Castle by Jeannette Walls: A memoir about childhood and resilience.
