Quick post from my phone; forgive the clumsiness and/or typos.
Thanks to Twilight, my sisters have slowly become interested in reading. (They were NOT readers before, so regardless of any personal opinions about the vampire romance-- which I enjoyed-- I am grateful). Ever since Twilight caught their attention, they've come often to my bookcase and borrowed from my extensive stash of YA books. They don't always finish them. Actually, I'd say ninety percent of the books they borrow come back, unfinished :( I'm talking best-selling authors, books I have LOVED. ("Really?" I ask them. "Sorry Nana," they say). Anyway, they want MORE romance, (so they keep telling me). Most of the stories I have aren't as saturated with LOVE as they want. Soooo, I figured I'd start guiding them to my adult romance novel collection (also extensive) but they want the blushing-crushing-first-love story. I can't make them happy! Except recently they became ADDICTED to Perfect Chemistry and Rules of Attraction by Simone Elkeles and they said, MORE LIKE THAT DIANA!!!!! The back and forth guy pov was a hit, as was the "romance first and other stuff second" focus of the story. I suggested Shiver/Linger by Maggie Stiefvater, which I remember being that way, and they LOVED it too. Yay! But that was a while ago. Now I'm at a loss. Every time I Google "YA romance" I come up with a similar list of books I already own...books my darling sisters didn't find romancey enough.
So blog friends, I need your help!!!!! Suggestions of YA romance novels? NOT novels that "have romance" but that are ACTUAL romance novels? Anyone? Anyone? Bueller? Bueller? We're hanging out this weekend so I'd love to have some fantastic suggestions for them; thanks in advance... Di
