Ten YA Books that don’t *need* more smooching

Happy Tuesday, friends. I struggled with this week’s topic. Because I’m generally a fan of anything and everything romantic, I thought I’d write about books that could have used more smooching. I know a lot of people wish YA didn’t have as much romance (if you are such a person here is a list for you), but I’m the opposite. If I feel a little meh about a book, usually I think there could have been more romance or more specifically more smooching. But it felt really mean to call out those books, so instead here are ten deeply romantic YA books that don’t *need* more smooching – however I wouldn’t complain if they did have more because I’m so in love with the characters! Long live romance! And have great weeks everyone!

Thanks to The Broke and the Bookish for hosting this weekly book meme!

  1. I don’t mind a romance if the romance fits in with the story. It always drives me crazy if a romance is kind of forced in and feels like there was an editor’s note somewhere saying there needed to be a romance! I have The Wrath and The Dawn and The Winner’s Curse on my TBR! Both look fantastic!

  2. I love your take on the topic and I felt similarly about it feeling a little mean. Of the books you’ve listed, I’ve only read Fangirl but I totally agree. It didn’t need more, but I would have been happy with more too!

  3. 🙂 Love what you’ve done with the list this week! It was quite tricky. You’ve picked some interesting books!
