Valentine’s Day Reads

Happy Valentine’s Day! It’s my first V-Day as a married woman, but unfortunately I’m spending it in bed with the flu. My hubby has been great though, making me tea and heating up chicken soup, so hopefully I’ll be on the mend soon. Since it’s Valentine’s Day, I decided to make a short list of some YA reads that are guaranteed to get you in a romantic mood:

Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins

Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins

This was one of my favorite reads last year. Anna’s parents send her to boarding school in Paris for her senior year, where she tries her hardest not to fall for Etienne St. Clair, a charming, handsome, and overall droolworthy guy who unfortunately is unavailable. The relationship between Anna and St. Clair was a rollercoaster ride from beginning to end and I loved every minute of it!

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Summer I Turned Pretty by Jenny Han

The Summer I Turned Pretty by Jenny Han

This is a really cute love story that ends up spanning three books. Belly spends each summer at the beach with the Fisher boys and has been in love with Conrad Fisher for years. Neither boy has paid her more attention than they would a sister, but one summer everything changes.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Perfect Chemistry by Simone Elkeles

Perfect Chemistry by Simone Elkeles

This is a little bit of a Romeo and Juliet-esque love story about a rich girl and a boy from the opposite side of the tracks. When they get paired up in their chemistry class, they are forced to realize they have more in common than they thought and they try to fight the stereotypes that keep them apart.

 

 

 

 

 

 

This Lullaby by Sarah Dessen

Remy’s mother has had multiple husbands, so Remy doesn’t have much faith in love. When she meets Dexter however, she can’t seem to get him out of her head. I haven’t read this one yet but it’s pretty much a guarantee that anything by Sarah Dessen is going to be a romantic hit!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver

Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver

This one is about a girl who lives the day before Valentine’s Day over and over for a week, trying to solve the mystery of her death that took place the previous day. I’m about to start this one soon! If it’s anywhere near as good as Oliver’s Delirium, I know I’ll love it!
