Top Five Tuesday was created by Bionic Book Worm. Head over to her page to check out her amazing posts!
Obviously, choosing only 5 out of hundreds is an impossible job – all the romances are just so different and special in their own way! I think I’m just going to end up selecting the top five out of romances that I’ve recently read. Okay? Okay!
- Always Never Yours by Emily Wibberley
I knew this was gonna be a cute romance the moment I saw this novel’s cover – there’s something just so cute and cheery about it with the soft colors and flowers and everything. There were quite a few boys that were in the picture and while the one that Megan ends up with is quite a surprise (I won’t give away any spoilers), now that I’ve read the book, I think it was inevitable…
- Permanent Record by Mary H. K. Choi
This book gave me all the feels. It just felt real. The main characters leapt off the page and I found myself crying and laughing alongside them. The book didn’t refrain from talking about all the obstacles that young adults face in life as well as, and especially, in relationships. I loved how Pablo, the main character finds himself through the relationship that he shares with Leanna. (Click hereto check out my book review)
- Fake It Till You Break It by Jenn P. Nguyen
What can I say? I’m sucker for this bookish trope. I love it when nemeses end up falling for each other and absolutely adore it when a faked relationship paves the path for a real one. Jake and Mia both have engaging characters and I enjoyed reading about their cute romance.
- There’s Something About Sweetie by Sandhya Menon
Sandhya Menon’s works always hold a special place in my heart. There aren’t many Indian YA authors out there – especially ones that write about Indian characters – and she manages to capture all the aspects of an Indian-American teenager living in the 21st century. Her characters and the relationships that they share always touch me and are super engaging. The romance that tales place between Sweetie and Ashish is one to die for.
- Emergency Contact by Mary H. K. Choi
Choi again! I’m pretty sure you can tell how much I enjoy her works. Sam an Penn, the two main characters and the ones between which a relationship eventually forms, are the most awkward-yet-cute individuals there could be. Though both of them are struggling in life in their own way – mentally as well as financially – they seem to be fierce and try to overcome the obstacles. What starts out as initially awkward, eventually leads to a beautiful relationship which forms over the sending and receiving of thousands of text messages.
