Favorite YA Romances

Being that it's V-Day and all, I was thinking about the fact that almost every YA has at least some romance component in it. I don't usually go for the cute and contemporary love stories (though I do want to read DITCHED), but instead lean toward the darker romances involving damaged characters like in Lisa McMann's WAKE or  THE HUNGER GAMES by Suzanne Collins. (BTW, if for some reason you haven't seen THE HUNGER GAMES trailer yet, you must watch it now. Amazing, right?) Anyway, rather than straight romance, I like it when the characters are too busy trying to survive to worry about dating. Most recently, I LOVED the romance between Rhine and Gabriel in WITHER. I know everyone has different tastes though, so in honor of this ridiculous lovely holiday, tell me...

What's your favorite YA romance?  

Oh, and Happy Valentine's Day!


  1. I definitely know what you mean. I loved the Hunger Games romance, but being the sappy girl I am, my fav romance was to Anna and Etienne from Anna and the French Kiss. Check out what I did for Valentine's Day on the site:
    Happy Valentine's Day at The Bucket List

  2. Gina--I've heard Anna and the French Kiss is great. One of these days I'll read some more contemporary. :)

  3. Hmm... either Tris and Four from Divergent, or Roiben and Kaye from Tithe :D

    Happy Valentine's Day!

  4. Oh I forgot about Tris and Four--that's a great pick! :)

  5. Anything by Simone Elkeles!

    But Graffiti Moon by Cath Crowley is AMAZING and it releases today!!

  6. I loved Perfect Chemistry by Simone and have been meaning to read her other ones. :)

  7. Rose and Dimitri from Vampire Academy are someone near the top of my list. Right now I'm reading CATCHING JORDAN by Miranda Kenneally and I love it so far! Even though I very rarely read contemporary romance.

  8. Lacey--Rose and Dimitri are hot! I read that one so long ago, and still need to read the rest of the series. I haven't read Miranda's book yet, but have heard great things. I'm going to have to do a "Contemporary YA" challenge for myself.
