    *FANGIRLS* Anna & the French Kiss and The Sky is Everywhere were awesommmmeee. I also enjoyed The Distance Between Us and The Fault in Our Stars. Eleanor & Park was also a good read. :D

    I have so much love for Xander, he’s one half of my favourite couple right now, he’s gorgeous! I also found The Fault in Our Stars to more romantic than others out there, but I don’t fancy Gus as much as some other crush swoony guys. This is a great collection though, some fantastic books listed Hazel! :D

    Anna and the French Kiss is such a spectacular Valentine’s Day read! I also read TFIOS but I didn’t love it; I just liked it. For the rest of the books, I still haven’t read them. I really want to read Gayle Forman’s new books soon though.

    Aw yes Eleanor & Park. I love it, but it makes me happy I wasn’t a teenager in the 80s. Actually, I’m usually happy I wasn’t a teenager in the 80s… Those characters, though. They hurt my heart.

    My Valentine’s Day YA pick was Why We Broke Up by Daniel Handler, even though the relationship never makes it all the way to Valentine’s Day. Not usually one for romantic stories, but that one’s fantastic.

    HAHA I love your picks! I’m reading Me Since You, actually, but I’d definitely recommend AATFK, Eleanor & Park, and Just One Day to anyone looking for a romantic bookish experience <3 Or maybe even TFiOS if they're up for a cryfest on happy hearts day XD
