Read A Romance Month: YA Romance

It’s Read A Romance month!  To celebrate, we’ve decided to shine the spotlight on YA romance novels today.  There are so many diverse YA romances out there that it was hard to choose which to feature in this post; if you’d like to view more, head over to the Young Adults Book Lists page and click on the “Romance” tab.  As always, click on a cover or a title to place a hold.


The Upside of Unrequited by Becky Albertalli

“Avoiding relationships to protect her sensitive heart, plus-sized Molly supports her once-cynical twin, Cassie, when the latter has her own bout of lovesickness, a situation that is complicated by sibling dynamics and an unexpected romantic triangle.”

Alex & Eliza by Melissa de la Cruz

“When Alex and Eliza meet one fateful night, so begins an epic love story that would forever change the course of American history.”

Let’s Talk About Love by Claire Kahn

“Alice had her whole summer planned. Nonstop all-you-can-eat buffets while marathoning her favorite TV shows (best friends totally included) with the smallest dash of adulting―working at the library to pay her share of the rent. The only thing missing from her perfect plan? Her girlfriend (who ended things when Alice confessed she’s asexual). Alice is done with dating―no thank you, do not pass go, stick a fork in her, done. But then Alice meets Takumi and she can’t stop thinking about him or the rom com-grade romance feels she did not ask for.”

Autoboyography by Christina Lauren

“High school senior Tanner Scott has hidden his bisexuality since his family moved to Utah, but he falls hard for Sebastian, a Mormon mentoring students in a writing seminar Tanner’s best friend convinced him to take.”

Every Hidden Thing by Kenneth Oppel

“In the late nineteenth century, a budding romance develops between Rachel and Samuel, two teenagers from rival families of fossil hunters heading out to the badlands in search of a rare dinosaur skeleton.”




Happy reading!
