Lately, I have been reading a lot of YA books with cheesy fluffy romance or first love scenarios. Let me say finding a YA book that does not have a romance is hard to come by. But yes, they do in fact exist. As a single girl in my 20s, I am tired of reading about the romance period. At least for now anyway. I find myself getting annoyed very easily as I read the character's dialogue and watching them fall in love. I don't know maybe I am being more of a pessimist lately and just fed up with love in general.
The thing is I find most love stories unrealistic and I am just tired of reading them and I am tired of being sappy. Love is just out of the cards in my life currently and I am fine with that. I like being single. As far as my reading tastes, I am more in the mood for a book with substance these days. I know I am not in the minority here and there are other people like me out there. So I began searching on the internet to compile a list of "Must read YA books without romance." So next time that you or I are fed up with the damsel in distress scenarios or another "Notebook" love romance. We can turn to this list.
