Guest Post: Must Read Romance Books for the Teenager

Teen romance novels are rarely just about romance — often, these novels are intertwined with action, adventure, deceit, or any number of other things. So when you are looking for the very best in teen romance novels, you might not necessarily find them in that particular section in your bookstore. Here area a few of the most popular and entertaining teen romance fictions of today:

Twilight

The Twilight series is a good place to start. While there are heavy elements of the supernatural — vampires and shape shifters — this book is also very heavy on romance and love. The plot follows Bella Swan as the falls in love with a vampire Edward Cullen. She also has a thing for a shape-shifting wolf named Jacob Black. Soon Bella finds herself in peril as a rogue group of vampires marks her as a target, and Edward struggles to save the love of his life. This is the first part of a four part book series. The next is New Moon, which digs into the budding romance between Bella and Jacob. Eclipse is the third and sees a struggle for Bella to choose between her loves. The fourth is Breaking Dawn, and it allows readers into the marriage of Edward and Bella and the drama behind her becoming pregnant with a Halfling.

The Vampire Diaries

As a result, of course, of the Twilight series’ success, vampire novels are all the rage right now. So when looking into teen romance books, another popular vampire series will also emerge. The Vampire Diaries was a widely popular collection, much like Twilight. However in this story, Elena Gilbert struggles between her love for two brothers Stefan and Damon Salvatore. While threats and drama abounds, offering a consistent page turner in every book, the real enticing aspect of this story is finding out who she ends up choosing and why.

The Hunger Games

Another book that you will find in teen romance, and which has recently captured the imaginations of young and old readers alike, is The Hunger Games series. This three-book set details a world in the future that features different districts of the country. Each year, a boy and girl are selected from each district to fight to the death in an arena of sorts. The romance is Katniss having to find out through all three books whether she is in love with her boyfriend/best friend Gale, her tribute partner Peeta, or if she is even capable of loving at all.

All in all, these novels lay out well over ten novels to get you started into the genre. If you want to find out where all the teen romance is, it is intermixed with a lot of the action and adventure books as well. These added plot points have caused all three of these novel sets to become widely popular media presentations. The Hunger Games is one of the top grossing movies of all time, and the same could be said about each of the Twilight films that have come out in theaters. Finally, The Vampire Diaries has inspired an incredible popular television show offering the same romantic struggle Elena Gilbert faces within the book.
