50 Must-Read Young Adult Romance Books | Book Riot
Young Keatyn is trying to make it through each day at her boarding school, while trying to stay as hidden as possible so that she can protect herself. Away from her family, she is dealing with a girl who hates her for no reason and several young boys who have her emotions running amuck. Cam thinks of her life as a country album because everything seems to be going that way. When he tells her that he loves her and promises to never leave, she is elated, but when he breaks that promise, through no fault of his own, she is left wondering what to do next. When Lily has a near-death experience after a bad manicure at the nail spa, she awakens with the ability to see ghosts. She meets an alleged outsider, Zoe, a ghost who ends up being not that different than she is, and a ghost named Nick whom she finds that she is falling for quickly. But Lily soon finds out that helping the ghosts is likely to mean giving up Nick, and she is nowhere near ready to do that.
Anytime is a good time to curl up with a couple of YA romance books. There are very few things that can make you feel as pleasantly warm and happy as reading a good teenage romance novel. Kittens and chocolate may come close, but in the end, YA rom-coms win out every time. One of the most frequent requests I get is for clean YA romance books. Kissing just comes with the territory.
What it's about : Nearly a decade older than the rest of the books on this list, Fire holds up as one of the strongest fantasy love stories that YA has ever seen. In the land of the Dells, there are stunningly beautiful and powerful versions of every creature — including humans — called monsters. Fire, a monster girl, must assist King Nash and Prince Brigan — sons of the previous king, who her father's influence corrupted. Brigan is at first unable to see past her parentage, but the two grow closer as threats from two neighboring rebel lords grow stronger.
