There are some books that romance bibliophiles agree are essential to every bookshelf. These three books top my list of favourites by being fluffy, cute, and all around loving.
1. A Thousand Pieces of You by Claudia Gray
Who doesn’t adore a good science fiction novel with a complicated love triangle thrown in and a handsome villain that you can’t help root for? While the science behind this novel is just probable enough to suspend disbelief, you can’t help but get wrapped up in the story and Marguerite’s adventure across the dimensions.
2. To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han
Lara Jean Song-Covey is the cutest thing since sliced bread. Innocent and charming, she’s in love with love. Jenny Han’s writing is absolutely phenomenal. It’s not difficult to love the whimsical tone to Lara Jean’s letters and the many boys she’s loved over the years. The rest of the trilogy is even better following Lara Jeans fictional and real relationships through the end of high school. On a side note, I’m totally excited for the movie adaptation next year starring Noah Centeneo from the Fosters.
3. Heartless by Marissa Meyer
If Alice in Wonderland was your favourite story as a child then Heartless by Marissa Meyer will surely appeal to you now. A dark take on the origin story of the Queen of Hearts takes readers down the rabbit hole and captivates them to the very last page. I thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of this book from the little references to the original story to the strong bravery of Catherine and the playful nature of Jest.
Yes, everyone is entitled to their own opinions, but if you haven’t already I definitely recommend you check these three books out. Drop me a comment below about the ya romance reads you can’t live without.
