Here you can recommend books.


message 2: by Adriana (new)

Adriana I love A Little Wanting Song! It's mostly about the MC, Charlie, trying to get over her shyness but it's also about her wanting to have things or being able to do things like talk to a guy she likes <3

I'm going to recommend to every The Sky is Everywhere by Jandy Nelson. It's a YA romance and majority of members haven't read it I'm thinking of adding as our book to read next month. I highly recommend it though to everyone here!

Adriana Ooh! I think I've got that on my kindle. I would love to read it with the group (:

Does anyone have any books to recommend for november reading poll?


message 6: by Adriana (new)

Adriana How about In This Moment. I know it's fairly new but it's .99 cents on Amazon (: And the whole story is about romance. Or Amy and Roger's Epic Detour. I've never read it but I heard it's good.


message 7: by Adriana (new)

Adriana My Life Next Door was pretty good. I really like the guy's family and the whole boy/girl next door theme.

Apparently it is good, but I'm not sure if it falls in the category of YA romance hmmm.

I've read it, I was not a fan though. But I've heard from other people and they thought it was really good :)

Thanks for replying Hanne, I've heard it was both good and bad so I wanted to see why that is. Why weren't you much of a fan?


message 17: by Hanne (new)

Hanne I don't really know, I guess it was because when I finished, I felt like there was no purpose to the story. I just felt like I could have used the time I needed to read this book to read another, better book. I also had a hard time identifying with Frankie, every five minutes I was wondering: why are you doing that? But I can see why other people liked it, for me there were just more negative than positive points :).

I hate when that happens, and you think about a better book you could be reading. I've heard people have trouble getting into the style of writing. I got some book vouchers for my birthday and I was thinking of buying this, but I may just hid in a corner of the bookshop and read a bit to see what I think.

also welcome to the group Hanne!! feel free to introduce yourself in the welcome discussion topic thingy :)

Yes I think it totally depends on your personal preferences :). Thanks, I will!

Has anyone read Shatter Me?


message 23: by Marisa (new)

Marisa (daemonsskitten) | 23 comments Lisa I have not read shatter me but just got it because it was on a books to be adapted into movies list. When you read it I would love to hear your thoughts. Don't know when I will get to it.

I have been wanting to read it for a while and it is classified as YA and I think some romance in there so I wasn't sure whether to add it to April poll? What do you think?

I think that would be a great idea to add it to the poll.

It's looking like These Broken Stars and Saving June are going to be March reads and I'll add shatter me for April's. Hopefully thats not too far away for everyone, thank you :)

Does anyone have any requests for May books. I am hoping to put up the poll soon!


message 31: by Rachel (last edited Apr 07, 2014 10:51PM) (new)

Rachel (rachelreaditwrite) How about a classic of some kind? Like Jane Austen? It's not strictly YA but she's about as true to the romance genre as you can get. I know I have a few other romance books to read but I can't remember what they are right now... I'll add to this later.

Edited to add: Or what about Lola and the Boy Next Door or the Unbecoming of Mara Dyer? or something by Sarah Dessen?

ooo I like that idea. I don't really know a lot about Austen's books other than names so if anyone has any suggestions of a romance classic to switch it up next month I'd be happy to put that on the list.

I will add Lola to the list and a Sarah Dessen book, but I talked to I think Taylor (sorry if this is wrong) about Mara Dyer and they said although it had romance in it, it wasn't really a romantic book. I am happy to add it onto the poll to see what people think!

Thankyou Rachel!!

Ahh that makes sense, it does seem like it might not be romance-focussed.

I've only read Jane Austen's Northanger Abbey, which was so good, but I think they all have romance as a main part. Maybe one of her shorter ones?

Well the first one that comes to mind is Persuasion, as it links to For Darkness Shows the Stars and could be a sort of follow on?

either that or Emma maybe??

(edit) I just realised Emma is around 500 pages!! maybe not

Throne of Glass is amazing! It might even be my all time favorite right now. And anything by Sarah Dessen is always fun! I can't think of which Jane Austin book is the shortest...

Pushing the Limits series has been on my TBR for quite a while. Also if anyone was wondering, I just added To All the Boys I've Loved Before onto the poll, as I have been hearing really great things about this book. Has anyone read it?

The new poll for July is up if you wanted to go vote.

Sorry Subhashree I didn't add in Brutally Beautiful because I thought it was more new adult than young. If anyone disagrees and wants me to put it on the poll let me know :)


message 46: by Subhashree (new)

Subhashree  Hari okay !! no problem
