Genre Feature: My List of 5-star YA (Romance) Novels
Digging through the hundreds of books I've read on Goodreads, I decided to pick the top 10 YA romance novels that I have read. Most are romance or have romance as a subgenre. There are tons of great books out there, but these are ones that I have read and given 5 stars in the last couple years. Maybe you'll find a new one for that valentine of yours. Note that these are not ranked in order and I linked them so check them out.
Addicted--5 stars that checked all the boxes and more, meaning great character building, worlds, narrative voice, dialogue, page-turning yet deep, accuracy, etc.
Breed, Instinct by Niki Cluff
Fate and Fortune, Kismet and Karma by Robin Daniels
Fire in Ice, Truth in Lies by Jennifer DiGiovanni
The Hidden Legacy, The Broken Rivalry by Christine Rees
The Memory Visit by Jenny Lynn Lambert
The Rare by Diane Anthony (note: there is a sequel The Remnant that is on my TBR list)
Relentless, Refuge, Rogue by Karen Lynch
The Selection, The Elite, The One by Kiera Cass (note: I purposely left out spinoff books)
Runners Up--enjoyed thoroughly that could round up to 5 stars, my 4.5 stars
Korrigan by Rebecca F. Kenney
Obsidian, Onyx by Jennifer L. Armentrout
Poison Study by Maria V. Snyder
Runes by Ednah Walters
Shiver Maggie Stiefvater
Soul Catchers Carrie Pulkinen
Tales of the Latter Kingdoms (so far I've read 2,4,6,7,) Christine Pope
Twilight, Breaking Dawn (not fan of the middle 2) Stephenie Meyer
The Hunger Games Suzanne Collins
Do you have any that I should add to my TBR list?
