Love Is in the Air: 11 Teen Romance Books | Brightly
In the summer between her freshman and sophomore years, Frankie transforms from an awkward kid to a year-old beauty. She returns to her elite boarding school and quickly snags herself a handsome senior boyfriend. Karou is a talented art student studying in Prague. She also spends her free time running mysterious errands for the monsters that raised her. The best part is that the second two books in the trilogy are just as strong as the first.
It's almost a cliche at this point to say that teen fiction isn't just for teens anymore. Which is why we were only a little surprised to see the tremendous response that came in for this summer's Best-Ever Teen Fiction poll. A whopping 75, of you voted for your favorite young adult novels, blasting past the total for last year's science fiction and fantasy poll at, dare we say it, warp speed. And now, the final results are in. While it's no surprise to see Harry Potter and the Hunger Games trilogy on top, this year's list also highlights some writers we weren't as familiar with.
In previous books like The Statistical Improbability of Love at First Sight , Smith has proven herself an author who expertly meshes the magical feelings of young love with the truthful realities of anyone doing some growing up. In The Glittering Court trilogy , Mead the author of the Vampire Academy series turns her formidable pen from vampires and urban fantasy to a wealthy kingdom in the New World. She chooses a mark named Grant Elliott to get her there, offering to work as his spy associate. The crackling chemistry and the setting make for beyond-compelling escapist fare. The problem?
