All quotes from my reviews.

I Now Pronounce You Someone Else by Erin McCahanSaving Francesca by Melina MarchettaFangirl by Rainbow RowellGraceling by Kristin CashoreLola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins

1. I Now Pronounce You Someone Else by Erin McCahan
“Their romance gave me that bubbly light-hearted feeling of new love. Their relationship was actually realistic and interesting.”

2.   Saving Francesca By Melina Marchetta
“The romance is also a little subtle. It happens slowly and it was one of those that melted me. Just about every scene with Francesca and Will made me feel all warm and fuzzy.”

3. Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell
“Then there’s the romance. Oh my goodness. At first I didn’t know who the love interest was. I really appreciate that looking back on it because when it happened I literally SWOONED. Really, I did. The romance was so sweet. Cath and her swoon worthy boy don’t seem like the best match at first but they’re a beautiful fit.”

4. Graceling by Kristin Cashore
Po…..sigh.

5. Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins
“Nothing. NOTHING makes me fall for a boy more than him pining after her. That’s what made me fall for Cricket even more than St. Clair. Cricket has feelings for Lola and he makes that very clear from the beginning. That made him irresistible! Really I loved everything about him, which is something I couldn’t say with St. Clair. Cricket is such an individual. He’s completely unique, there are no other swoon-worthy YA boys out there like him. He has his own style and a subtle confidence that makes him absolutely alluring. Plus, he has this boyish charm….sigh….I could just go on and on…”

The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle HodkinThe Book of Broken Hearts by Sarah Ockler Perfect Chemistry by Simone ElkelesGoing Too Far Jennifer EcholsSean Griswold's Head by Lindsey Leavitt

6. The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin
“Heart attacks and swooning will ensue. Noah, Noah, Noah. He is everything you love!I guarantee it! He even has an accent! He’s also a bit of a bad boy with a reputation. He’s just….Whoa. I’m gushing, huh?”

7. The Book of Broken Hearts by Sarah Ockler
“It’s slow burn. It was never super angsty or at all irritating. I really loved Emilio. I adored how honest he was. His feelings were clear from pretty early on so he never went through a jerkface stage as some YA boys are prone to do. He was really just a nice, swoon-worthy boy.”

8. Perfect Chemistry by Simone Elkeles
“Alex and Brittany have layers and layers that are revealed as the story progresses. The narration goes back and forth between the two. I think that makes the story so much better. You get to know both of them intimately and not just how one perceives the other. I fell in love with these characters and even days later I’m still thinking about them.”

9. Going Too Far Jennifer Echols
“Meg and John After were perfect. I think I might have fallen in love with John just a little. He was so swoon worthy.”

10. Sean Griswold’s Head by Lindsey Leavitt
“To be honest, though, my most favorite thing about Sean Griswold’s Head was Sean Griswold. He was dreamy and….perfect. *sigh* The romance between them, while it had its ups and downs, was a breath of fresh air! There was no brooding and whining. Things unfolded for them realistically and they may just be one of my favorite fictional couples now!”
