It’s 2016 and I’m hella late with this but I need your HELP! As you know most bloggers and readers have some sort of challenge going on: finishing up that tbr, reading fantasy for the first time, reading more diverse books, etc… Which I think totally awesome. So I’ve been thinking long and hard on what type of challenge I wish to do. Something that is truly out of my comfort zone.
Naturally, the only thing that makes me uncomfortable when it comes to reading is ROMANCE. Ugh, I just can’t stand it. It’s too fluffy and pink. Well at least the YA version of romance. Most often than not I’m dealing with a triangle, square or trapezoid. Or the female is a Mary Sue and the boy she loves is a brooding asshole man slut. Like come on. Can we not have that in 2016.
I want a YA romance that feels natural and not so cliché. That’s where your help is needed. I’m hoping that you can recommend me so YA romance as well as some NA books that you’ve enjoy and think that I might enjoy as well. It doesn’t matter if it’s straight, gay, bisexual, transgender….etc. I just want a really good YA/NA Romance book to read.
That is my challenge for 2016–to read and review at least 5 romance books. I was going for ten but I know myself and how I am so 5 it is.
So if you have any recommendations please, please leave a comment below with your choice. By the end of January I will post what you guys have suggested for me to read.
As always thank you for stopping by. You are the best!
P.S. One book that I truly enjoyed in 2015 was The Summer of Chasing Mermaids by Sarah Ockler. So if you know of any similar like that pass them on. Thanks!
