YA Love Stories

I’m as much a fan of action-packed violent books as the next guy girl, but that doesn’t mean I’m not also a sucker for a good romance. And seeing as today is Valentine’s Day I thought I’d share some of my favorite YA romances. Some of the books focus on love (like, say, Anna and the French Kiss, which kind of says it all in the title) while others just have great romances in addition to the rest of the story.
So here we go…

THE romance: 

The sweet, this-is-too-adorable-to-breathe romance:

The kind of love story that breaks your heart then glues it back together:

The anti-romance:

The love that shouldn’t make you smile (even though it does):

The romance that picks you up after you’ve bawled your eyes out:

The kind of romance all girls dream of:

The epic love story:

The coming-of-age romance:

The perfect love triangle:

The adorable, wish-this-would-happen-to-me romance:

Happy Valentine’s Day, friends!
What’s your favorite YA romance?
