13. The Geek's Guide to Unrequited Love by Sarvenaz Tash

As a girl whose favorite genre is contemporary, I'm pleasantly surprised that half the list is fantasy. I do love fantasy, don't get me wrong, but it's never been as near and dear to my heart as realistic fiction. 
Anyways, what books have you loved this year?
