This week’s topic is Books That Will Make You Swoon. I’m a contemporary YA fan, which means I’ve got TONS of books I can share with you all! Here’s the list (you may recognise some of these from other posts – they’re just good for everything!).
1. The Fault in Our Stars by John Green
You’re probably tired of hearing it by now, but Hazel + Augustus = favourite couple ever
2. Anna and the French Kiss
Oh, Etienne! *swoons* He’s cocky, sarcastic, French/British/American, and totally cute.
3. Lola and the Boy Next Door
Though I didn’t like it AS much as Anna, Lola and Cricket are a really sweet couple. Cricket’s kind of awkward – he’s an inventor and is much kinder than Etienne.
4. Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell
I don’t know how, but Rainbow Rowell makes me almost faint just by describing HAND-HOLDING. I mean, that’s a serious talent.
5. Let it Snow by John Green, Maureen Johnson and Lauren Myracle
Three Christmas romances! All awesome! Maureen Johnson’s is my favourite but they’re all REALLY funny and romantic.
6. Life in Outer Space by Melissa Keil
This is a great Aussie read – Camilla and Sam are a really cute, nerdy couple.
7. These Broken Stars by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner
I loved the relationship in These Broken Stars. Even though it wasn’t the main plot, the romance was really well-written and adorable!
8. The Princess Diaries by Meg Cabot
Um, Michael is just the best book boyfriend ever. It takes them a million books (well, ten) to get there, but in the end it’s SO worth it.
9. Ella Enchanted by Gail Carson Levine
I love Gail Carson Levine. I wrote an essay about her in seventh grade, and Ella Enchanted is a great example of her cute, easily-read, happily-ever-after stories.
What are your favourite swoony books? Do you have any of the same ones I do? Let me know in comments! I’d love to hear your thoughts.
