Sunshine by Robin McKinley

An ancient vampire and a baker with magical affinity for sunlight don't sound like they'd get along, but when Constantine and Sunshine save each other's lives, they don't have much of a choice. McKinley's narrative voice is flawless, and I love the matter-of-fact existence of werewolves, demons, and charms in a world also filled with computers and cinnamon rolls. -

An Abundance of Katherines by John Green

Colin has two great fears: that he will never do something that matters, and that he will always be alone. Devastated after being dumped for the 19th time, by the 19th girl named Katherine, he and his only friend embark on his first-ever road trip, pursuing, finally, the idea that will leave his mark—an equation to accurately predict how long any relationship will last—while trying to finally let go of the idea of love.

Why We Broke Up by Daniel Handler & Maira Kalman

Just broke up? This one’s for us! This beautiful book will make you cry and heal all at the same time. While this is an altogether exceptional book, what really strikes me is the amount of passion that went into making it. Every page, every illustration impresses upon me what a labor of love this was, for both author and illustrator, and that makes it a heartbreaking work of art.

The Fault in Our Stars by John Green

Hazel isn’t your average 16-year old: goes to community college, recites T.S. Eliot from memory, watches marathons of America’s Next Top Model. And she can’t breath without the oxygen cart wheeling behind her. Augustus Waters, one-legged 17-year old virgin, may see a dead girl in her—or may be the one person to truly see her. This isn’t a story about cancer, or cancer survivors, but about love, in all its beauty, humiliation, pain, and ecstasy.

Chime by Franny Billingsley

This is one of the most lushly imagined books I've read in a long time, and it also happens to be one of the best love stories I've read in awhile as well. It's about a tortured young woman named Briony who is convinced that she is a witch, and that she was somehow responsible for her stepmother's untimely death. The language is an incredible blend of old-world English and modern-day poetry.

Shine by Lauren Myracle

Something bad happened to Cat, and she hasn’t talked to anyone since. But now the boy she called best friend has been left for dead, the apparent victim of a hate crime, and Cat is the only one seeking justice in her tiny Southern town. But her years apart mean more is going on than Cat imagined: this crime is more than hatred. An enthralling mystery.

Matched by Ally Condie

In a future where the Society’s word decides all, and their word is final. But when Cassia finds that she has been accidentally matched with two people, she finds herself opposing the Society and everything she has ever known, fighting for her free will. The simple, stripped down writing matches the sweet love story, and left me excited for the sequel (which is even better!).

The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater

On an island where deadly horses rise from oceans depths every fall, the locals catch and race the beasts. This is the story of one brave, stubborn girl, and one quiet, horse-hearted boy. They have their own reasons for racing, but find themselves slowly drawn together. This is a fantastic, lyrically-written book about family, love, loyalty, and home. I loved it so much
