I've been blogging for 4 years (this month!) and these are favorites I've read during that time.
Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins
To paraphrase Kanye, this is the best lighthearted contemporary romance of all time. All time.
Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell
Issues plus contemporary romance plus college = love
Sweethearts by Sara Zarr
Issues but not really romance but still so good.
Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta
Some issues, some hopping through history, a whole lot of swoon.
The Sky is Everywhere by Jandy Nelson
This is also some really good issues plus romance. Apparently these are things I really like.
Everything else... way more fantasy than I expected.
The Girl of Fire and Thorns series by Rae Carson
Spanish-influenced world with a chubby protagonist and multiple love interests without a love triangle. Basically all the good things.
The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater
Some people say this book is slow. I say, Sean Kendrick.
The Raven Boys series by Maggie Stiefvater
The characters and friendships are the most developed of any series I've read.
Matched by Ally Condie
I stayed up all night reading this and was a zombie the next day. But it was totally worth it. Also this the first/only book where I liked the love triangle loser the best.
The Winner's Curse by Marie Rutkoski
Yeah, I looked up a bunch of spoilers for the sequel (finally out today!) because I love pretty much everything about this book.
Have you read any of these? What are some of your favorites?
