Ok, it’s Embarrassment Confession time. I am seriously addicted to YA romance novels. It’s how I unwind. I loved the Twilight series. I still cry when I read The Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants. And if the novel happens to also include fantasy or take place in a future dystopia, so much the better. I seriously love a good love story, and YA authors really know how to write them.
Speaking of which, one of my favorite authors, Sarah Dessen, is coming out with a new book, The Moon and More, available June 4. If you need something to tie you over during the three long months between now and the release date, you can read an excerpt from the USA Today article below:
Sarah Dessen is, in my opinion, one the more talented writers in this genre. If you, like me, read girly YA novels and have not been introduced to the world of Sarah Dessen before this, check her out. I suggest Along for the Ride to start. Or, if you already know and love her work, we could always form a teen romance novel support group. Potential discussion topics include “Loud and Proud: How to tote your latest book around without being ashamed to show the cover” and “Romancing the Loan: How to loan your books to your friends and actually get them back.” Suggestions for future topics welcome.
