Best Books about Love for Young Adults in a Nutshell

If there’s one thing young adult novelists write well its relationships, so they’ve churned out some pretty good, maybe the best books about love for young adults over the years. They manage to capture the awkward starting point and the high-inducing weeks that follow, rarely tipping over into the vomit-worthy-soppiness zone.

It’s a gift, really.

So when it comes to reading novels about love, the Young Adult section is where I head first. Good romantic books to read for young adults are dotted everywhere, but you’ll need a few to start you off…

Even If You Hate MileyThe Last Song (Nicholas Sparks)

The Last Song (Nicholas Sparks) introduces us to Ronnie, your typical cynical teen who is less than impressed with her parents’ divorce. She’s even less enthusiastic about being sent off to Wilmington, her dad’s new hometown, to spend the summer.

It’s one of those books that demands to be read with a blanket and a hot water bottle

Still, she might whinge and moan like nobody’s business but there’s just something to kick-back-cool about her you just can’t help but love, even if you’re not a fan of controversial Twerker Miley Cyrus, who plays Ronnie in the film.

It’s one of those books that demands to be read with a blanket and a hot water bottle, so dedicate a day this weekend to delving into it.

Why is it one of the best love stories? Because it steers away from the usual ‘I love him but oh no he likes that girl over there’ story line; it’s not the standard teen heartbreak book that you might expect. Sparks digs deep and creates a story about love on so many levels, between so many people.

Tissues At The Ready, Team

I don’t even know where to start with The Fault In Our Stars (John Green). The Fault In Our Stars (John Green)

You know when you hit your funny bone and it hurts but you also find yourself laughing? It’s like that. It’ll rip your heart out but you’ll still chuckle at it.

Am I being dramatic when I tell you how sad it is? Nope. In fact, I can sum up the effect this book had on me in one sentence: I read it two years ago and I still can’t pick it up.

Let me just get this out there – I’m not a cryer, it’s not my thing.

This book, however, had me blubbering like a child who’s lost its mum in a supermarket. Except there were no announcements on the Tannoy system to say “Can the parents of Kerry please come and collect her as she is emotionally damaged by the book she is reading”.

But don’t let me put you off – it might be an intensely emotional book but it is still absolutely brilliant.

Don’t Hit Me, Twilight Lovers

The simple fact is love stories don’t come any more raw than this one – it’ll make Bella Swan and Edward Cullen look like blubbering babies.

The Fault In Our Stars is a new level of emotional attachment to fictional characters; it’ll have you roaring with laughter and blubbering into your pillow. It’s one of those books you don’t forget.

A new level of emotional attachment to fictional characters

Fingers crossed, soon I’ll be able to pick it up without welling up (that’s if I have any fingers left after what I said about ‘Twilight’…).
