Young Adult Romance Novels

I'm a 17 year old girl and really enjoy reading books about romance and relationships. Some of my favorites are:The Au Pairs, The Twilight Series, and The Luxe Series. I also enjoy reading books by Hailey Abbott, Elizabeth Scott, and Susane Colasanti. I could go on, but that would take me all day. I'm interested in knowing about other books along those lines, so if anyone has any good titles they want to share, please do!

Re: Young Adult Romance Novels

I am an avid teenage romance novel reader also, and I have enjoyed the following you may not have heard of:


Perfect Chemistry - Simone Elkeles (does a very good job of writing from both boy and girl point of view)

Impossible - Nancy Werlin (a little on the fantasy side but still very enjoyable)

Ophelia - Klein (a twist on Hamlet, and though sad for about 70 pages, still very good)

The Boyfriend List - E. Lockhart (cute and quirky, also in a series)

The Ugly Series - Scott Westerfeld (set in the future, and action packed, but still enough for a romantic junkie like me)


Hope I could help:smileyhappy:


I also added the links to them so you don't have to search around forever:smileyhappy:


Perfect Chemistry  Impossible  Ophelia  The Boyfriend List  Uglies (Uglies Series #1)

I love books so much and here are some of my top favorites (note that this is not in any sort of order):


  • Look for me by Moonlight, by Mary Downing Hahn
  • Jessica's Guide to Dating on the Dark Side, by Beth Fataskey
  • All four Twilight books, by Stephanie Meyer
  • Another Faust, by Dani and Daniel Nayeri (I'm in the middle of this book, it's good so far).

Oh, I also love Sarah Dessen. All of her books are amazing.

I've heard city of bones and the morganville vampire books are very good, too.

Re: Young Adult Romance Novels

Hi there:


I'd like to let you know about another young adult romance title, slightly different than the ones you listed...although I absolutely adore the Twilight series.


I wrote a book called Wrestling With Desire which follows two high school boys who fall in love and have to deal with the complications, fears, and ultimate rewards of being true to themselves.


Given the current issues around bullying gay kids, I think this is a great book fro the times.


You can find it at Featherweight Press ( It's available in eBook and will soon be out in paperback as well.

Re: Young Adult Romance Novels

If you want a different type of romantic read, I'd recommend Empress of the World. The characters are really quirky and likeable. I enjoyed it!

My favorite that I keep recommending is Dash & Lily's Book of Dares.  Unlike many books of late that are part of a long series, this story is complete between these two covers.  The perspective alternates bewtween Dash & Lily and each of them has a unique voice and style.  I love the humor, the surpises and having NYC as a backdrop in this book.  I really think anyone would enjoy it and I'm glad I read it already so I can share my thoughts here.  :smileyhappy:
