Hey everyone! If you love reading romance like me or want to start reading, this is the right article for you.
Today, I’m going to mention some of my favourite YA { Young Adult } romances.
These books are age appropriate, with close to none explicit scenes.
Also, you might think these books are going to be cliches. Yeah....some of them might be. But, different people have different opinions. And, it’s romance! It’s kind of supposed to be a little corny.
| LOOKING FOR ALASKA | John Green

If you still haven’t realised { my username }, “Looking For Alaska” is basically my life. I’m not a huge fan of John Green but this book is an absolute favourite. Seriously, this is a must read, according to me. I LOVE it so so much. There’s a show based on it with the same name on Hulu. I thought it was a near perfect adaptation of the book. So, you can definitely check that out too. But warning, this book and the show might make you ugly cry.
~ Goodreads Overview/Summary : Before. Miles “Pudge” Halter is done with his safe life at home. His whole life has been one big non-event, and his obsession with famous last words has only made him crave “the Great Perhaps” even more (Francois Rabelais, poet). He heads off to the sometimes crazy and anything-but-boring world of Culver Creek Boarding School, and his life becomes the opposite of safe. Because down the hall is Alaska Young. The gorgeous, clever, funny, sexy, self-destructive, screwed up, and utterly fascinating Alaska Young. She is an event unto herself. She pulls Pudge into her world, launches him into the Great Perhaps, and steals his heart. Then. . . .
After. Nothing is ever the same.
| THE HEARTBREAKERS | Ali Novak

At first sight and after reading the overview you might think, “Wattpad? Seriously? The whole thing screams cliche.” BUT, not all books of Wattpad are cliches. Some of them including this book are amazing. A five out five stars from me. It was lighthearted and so cute! And fun, for the most part. A perfect summer read for sure.
~ Goodreads Overview : "When I met Oliver Perry, I had no clue he was the lead singer for The Heartbreakers. And he had no idea that I was the only girl in the world who hated his music."
Stella will do anything for her sick sister, Cara—even stand in line for an autographed Heartbreakers CD...for four hours. She's totally winning best birthday gift this year. At least she met a cute boy with soft brown hair and gorgeous blue eyes while getting her caffeine fix. Too bad she'll never see him again.
Except, Stella's life has suddenly turned into a cheesy love song. Because Starbucks Boy is Oliver Perry – lead singer for the Heartbreakers. And even after she calls his music crap, Oliver still gives Stella his phone number. And whispers quotes from her favorite Disney movie in her ear. OMG, what is her life?
But how can Stella even think about being with Oliver — dating and laughing and pulling pranks with the band — when her sister could be dying of cancer?
| THE DISTANCE BETWEEN US | Kasie West

Kasie West is undoubtedly one of the best YA romance writers I’ve come across. Her writing style is really simple and elegant, easy to understand, which I really appreciate. The next and also last two books I’m going to name are also by her. Because I love her to much.
~ Goodreads Overview : Seventeen-year-old Caymen Meyers studies the rich like her own personal science experiment, and after years of observation she’s pretty sure they’re only good for one thing—spending money on useless stuff, like the porcelain dolls in her mother’s shop.
So when Xander Spence walks into the store to pick up a doll for his grandmother, it only takes one glance for Caymen to figure out he’s oozing rich. Despite his charming ways and that he’s one of the first people who actually gets her, she’s smart enough to know his interest won’t last. Because if there’s one thing she’s learned from her mother’s warnings, it’s that the rich have a short attention span. But Xander keeps coming around, despite her best efforts to scare him off. And much to her dismay, she's beginning to enjoy his company.
She knows her mom can’t find out—she wouldn’t approve. She’d much rather Caymen hang out with the local rocker who hasn’t been raised by money. But just when Xander’s attention and loyalty are about to convince Caymen that being rich isn’t a character flaw, she finds out that money is a much bigger part of their relationship than she’d ever realized. And that Xander’s not the only one she should’ve been worried about.

“Who are you talking to?”
“Myself.”
“You do that a lot.”
“I know. I’m the only one who understands me.”
How is that not relatable?
This book had a tiny bit of mystery which I really loved. The suspense made it more interesting. Another five out five stars from me.
~ Goodreads Overview : Signed, sealed, delivered…
While spacing out in chemistry class, Lily scribbles some of her favorite song lyrics onto her desk. The next day, she finds that someone has continued the lyrics on the desk and added a message to her. Intrigue!
Soon, Lily and her anonymous pen pal are exchanging full-on letters—sharing secrets, recommending bands, and opening up to each other. Lily realizes she’s kind of falling for this letter writer. Only, who is he? As Lily attempts to unravel the mystery and juggle school, friends, crushes, and her crazy family, she discovers that matters of the heart can’t always be spelled out…
| PIVOT POINT | Kasie West
teen, young adult, and book image
Ok, now this book is a whole other thing. It’s a part of the duet, “Pivot Point”. The 2nd and last book is “Split Second”. That’s also a favourite. So, these books are actually more on the fantasy and science fiction side, with not so much, but no so less amount of romance. But, I love them nonetheless. If you want a complete romance with no other ruling genres, these two books might not be for you. Warning : both of these books are a little confusing and take some brain work, so if you’re too lazy at the moment.......don’t try them now.
~ Goodreads Overview : Knowing the outcome doesn't always make a choice easier...
Addison Coleman’s life is one big “What if?” As a Searcher, whenever Addie is faced with a choice, she can look into the future and see both outcomes. It’s the ultimate insurance plan against disaster. Or so she thought. When Addie’s parents ambush her with the news of their divorce, she has to pick who she wants to live with—her father, who is leaving the paranormal compound to live among the “Norms,” or her mother, who is staying in the life Addie has always known. Addie loves her life just as it is, so her answer should be easy. One Search six weeks into the future proves it’s not.
In one potential future, Addie is adjusting to life outside the Compound as the new girl in a Norm high school where she meets Trevor, a cute, sensitive artist who understands her. In the other path, Addie is being pursued by the hottest guy in school—but she never wanted to be a quarterback’s girlfriend. When Addie’s father is asked to consult on a murder in the Compound, she’s unwittingly drawn into a dangerous game that threatens everything she holds dear. With love and loss in both lives, it all comes down to which reality she’s willing to live through... and who she can’t live without.
So, this is it for today. I’m going to write more articles about romance novels. So, if you liked this one, make sure to check those when I post them. My next bookish article is going to be about my favourite writer, Colleen Hoover. She is the best romance author in the world, according to me. But, I might be a bit biased.....
