    "This book is good because it's so easy going. It's not incredibly deep with tons of foreshadowing. It doesn't have complex characters that betray each other. It simply is what it is, a nice fiction/romance book that you can read and have fun with."

    "Anna and the French Kiss seemed like it may be a bit to over the top in terms of sexuality, for my teens to read. However, after a thorough cover to cover reading on my part, I withdraw my initial opinion. This is a solid read, and I feel as though it is incredibly appropriate and relatable for teens, as long as we're on the same page talking about teens in the later years of teens."

DID YOU KNOW?

Just when everyone else thought writing romance novels is more of a breezy past time, it's not. Interestingly, did you know that you can actually take romance fiction courses at Harvard? And due to the popularity of this genre, it has evolved into a universal ingredient that you can combine with any other genres. Whether it is mixed with some touch of religious aspect or even paranormal, the romance theme would still effervesce. Hence, Sarah Wendell, a famous romance blogger, once said, "Whatever your cup of tea is, someone's pouring it."

If you feel guilty about indulging so much in romance books, don't be, because they are romance novels are good for your health! Aside from boosting the brain activity and function, perhaps one of the most significant effects of reading romance books is that they make us consider our relationships. Some people see a great deal of themselves in the characters. And since the fictional characters are flawed, they learn from the protagonist's mistakes and pitfalls. For the ladies, it is in their best interest to be into romance movies and novels. Why? Because they get inspired by the heroines and the writers themselves. Moreover, romance novels are great avenue to make you realize that you shouldn't be ashamed or uncomfortable of your sexuality. Most these books perpetuate the idea healthy sex lives are

I came to really care about the characters as the story progressed, especially when Kyle, the Beast, started to understand more things about his own self. This is definitely one I will read again in the future."

    "I watched the movie with my nieces and sister as a team player, so I kind of knew what to expect from the book going in. My expectations were low to begin with, but this was not close to being impressive in the least! As far as young adult series go, there are far many more that are worth your time and effort. I felt like it was incredibly slow until the last few pages. Though, I must say, it isn't nearly as bad as the popular consensus seems to be. My niece who is 13, wants the remaining books in the series, however, so it may be a hit with its intended audience! "

    "A MUST read for fans of The Mortal Instruments. Some believe it is just a prequel to The Mortal Instruments, but it is much more than that. Neither book has to be read to understand the other. One could read this and not be confused whatsoever. Clockwork Angel never has a dull moment, keeps you intrigued until the very end. I stayed up way later than I should on work nights because I didn't want to put it down "

Peter Kavinsky is perfect for me too. I guess I will have to agree with Lara Jean.
