In YA (or any genre for that matter) there is a fair share of Romance… Ranging from the two adorable nerds who fall in love to the alien and the Princess, it’s hard not to fall in love! Today Angelina and I decided, why not have a discussion on what makes you Swoon?
This is a SUPER hard question because I am a fan girl who loves to fan girl over these characters. I mostly read Young Adult books because I’m not a fan of romance in Adult books where they like… go way out there. Those kinds of overly romantic books leave me like Spock here.
I like my romance books to have cute lines, you know the kind that makes you smile and laugh. Some books that I swooned over include a TON of books, but I’ll narrow it down 🙂
Even though I found Cath to be a bit annoying and rude (sorry!!!) Her romance with Levi was so totally adorable I couldn’t help but smile and laugh and ship them like crazy! Rainbow Rowell has a way at making my heart melt, I mean Eleanor & Park was the same way.
“I miss you.”
“That’s stupid,” she said. “I saw you this morning.”
“It’s not the time,” Levi said, and she could hear that he was smiling. “It’s the distance.”
Lets pause here and just soak in the adorableness.
“The rest of the world quieted into nothing. In that moment, after ten long years, Celaena looked at Chaol and realized she was home.”
I guess you could say I’m a fan of cute romances :P. You know, the kind where the characters slowly fall in love or have always been in love. Instant romances to me, aren’t as great as the slow, up climb to the cutesy scenes… but I still read those kinds of books…
So far, this is my favorite book of the year. Spelled by Betsy Schow is so good! I can’t say too much other than I LOVED this book so much 🙂 But don’t you worry, it was all sorts of cute and a lot of funny.
I don’t have a quote since this isn’t yet published 😦
When I read Cinder, the first book, I enjoyed it but was a bit disappointed. I couldn’t get into Cinder until the ending. At first, I wasn’t sure if I would continue the series obviously I decided to and obviously that was the BEST DECISION EVER! Scarlet, in my opinion, was even BETTER than Cinder, and Marissa Meyer is like the best ever 😀 Wolf and Scarlet were so INCREDIBLY adorable, I can’t put my thoughts in words…
“I knew they would kill me when they found out, but…” He struggled for words, releasing a sharp breath. “I think I realized that I would rather die because I betrayed them, than live because I betrayed you.”
Although I found the bickering between David and Harper to be a bit irritating, I did love how there relationship changed.
Colin was my favorite, I know, I know but Eogan! Okay so I shipped Eogan and Nym alright, they were just so incredibly cute and made for each other!
For most of this book, it was hard to tell who was the Assassin and who as the Prince, that DIDN’T stop me from liking it! Although… I don’t remember who I liked better, I’m 99% sure it was the Assassin XD
