Looking for specific book recommendations

[ Edited ]

Ok... So I'm looking for a specific type of book...

 

-I like the Dessen books - I've read most of them.

-Love Twilight and the Imortal Series (but I'm not really looking for more supernatural books)

-I love the "teen romance" type books

 

so basically what I'd like is a teenish romance book with steam and no supernatural or deaths from one of the couples... recommendations would be greatly appreciated!

 

p.s. I like the happy endings!!!

Re: Looking for specific book recommendations

There is the ultimate book recommendation list which has a lot of good books posted on there. As far as good romance goes most things out right now have some sort of paranormal theme. Here are a few nonparanormal teen romance books though.

 

This is a series that most people fall in love with..I know I did.

 

Perfect Chemistry

  

Rules of Attraction

  

 

Erin Haft has some cute stand alone books

 

Pool Boys

  

 

Meet Me at the Boardwalk  

Susane Colasanti also has some good fun romances

 

When It Happens

  

Take Me There

  

Waiting for You

  

 

Something Like Fate  

The Hunger Games is also an action/adventure series but there is a small romance going on in the sidelines.

 

The Hunger Games (Hunger Games Series #1)

  

Catching Fire (Hunger Games Series #2)

  

Mockingjay (Hunger Games Series #3)

  

 

As far as anything else goes if you are old enough and want even steamier romances you could move from reading teen romance to reading adult romance. Historical and Contemporary romances are usually good.

thanx!  I'm 22!  lol.

I have read Perfect Chemistry and really liked it so her other books are on my list... I just wasn't sure.  And I've heard about the hunger games but I wasn't sure if they were romancy like I would like.  And I love the Colasanti books and I plan on getting Take Me There and the new one.

You should try reading The Time Traveler's Wife. It has a lot of romance. I think you might really like it.
