What to Read (15)

What to Read is just a little thing I like to do that features a slew of books from a certain genre. Sometimes I don't exactly do genres, but you get the gist! I planned to have a review up of Born Wicked by Jessica Spotswood but unfortunately I'm not quite done with that one yet! Hopefully a review will go up tomorrow and if not there will be another post of some sorts. But here is "Friday's" post!

Today I'm featuring:
Tuesday was Valentine's Day and I thought it would be fun to highlight some of my favorite romances. These are not very current releases, some are but I'm trying to highlight older books that I loved. 
The Season by Sarah MacLean~I am SO in love with this book. I read it way before I started by blog so I never did a review on it---maybe I'll do that for tommorrow--but this book has it all. Romance, mystery and a historical setting. I think I'm just about ready to die of happiness already. The romance is adorable and really sweet, as well.

The Boston Jane series by Jennifer L. Holm~ Like The Season, I read the Boston Jane series way before I started blogging. It was really before I read any YA. Truth be told when I read these I was still in elementary school and I was scandalized by all the kissing. But oh my goodness was I obsessed with the romance. If you want a sweet romance in historical times then this is the one for you. Just because I read this when I was younger doesn't mean it isn't in the genre of YA. I think I'm going to give this series a re-read to see if I still love them.

Newer romances that I love:
Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi: This is so spectacular. Both the book and the romance.
Catching Jordan by Miranda Kenneally: READ THIS ONE NOW! I'm so in love with this book and the characters. And of course, the romance.
Blood Red Road by Moira Young: Jack and Saba are so great. Seriously, read this one soon!!

I read The Season a long time ago too, and really enjoyed it. I had read The Luxe series, and wanted something similar. It was, but it is different too. Still, I would recommend The Luxe series if you liked The Season.

I haven't read any of your "older" books but definitely agree with your newer picks--all of those just blew me away. LOVE!

I did really enjoy the romance between Jack and Saba in Blood Red Road. It was sweet and innocent, but you could still feel their passion.
