Valentine’s Day is coming up soon. The holiday of love! That means a lot of annoying emails from publishers promoting their romance authors and books. So instead of you taking your books from a list meant to just promote authors whether the book is good or not, you get me telling you my favorite romance authors! (You’re Welcome.)
- Sarah Dessen
Sarah Dessen is my favorite author of all time. While her books aren’t the conventional types of ‘Romance’ books with hearts and couples all over the covers, her books focus on important issues (Domestic Violence, Family Issues, inc.) while also having the element of romance in most of them. When I first read one of her books, I fell in love. I bet you will too once you pick up one of her books.

2. Jen Malone
Jen writes both young adult and middle school books, but that doesn’t make her romance books childish. I’ve read all of her recent romance YA books. and they all were amazing. My personal favorite, Wanderlost, had a wonderful coming of age story that wasn’t credited to the romance (a rarity) and a super cute romance. (Okay, I said Wanderlost was my favorite but Changes in Latitudes was just as good. Ugh. Decisions.) Anyways, her YA romance books were super good and cute and I highly recommend her!

3. Jennifer E. Smith
Now this one might be an obvious. If you have read any YA romance books, you’ve probably seen one of her books. Every one of her books have been a hit and a favorite around young adults everywhere. They’re adorable and lovable, and a definite ideal Valentine’s Day read.
What Book Should You Start Out With?: The Geography of You and Me!
4. Kasie West
She is an absolute favorite of mine! Her books are a 100% must read. If you don’t read any of the other authors on this list, you must read this one. Her books are so adorable, lovable, and amazing. The books have diverse characters without making it too forced, which is quite rare when a lot of authors often use diverse characters for no other reason than to draw in readers. So in summary, Kasie West is absolutely amazing.
What Book Should You Start Out With?: A book that took over my heart, Lucky In Love!
