"Saying 'I notice you're a nerd' is like saying, 'Hey, I notice that you'd rather be intelligent than be stupid, that you'd rather be thoughtful than be vapid, that you believe that there are things that matter more than the arrest record of Lindsay Lohan. Why is that?' In fact, it seems to me that most contemporary insults are pretty lame. Even 'lame' is kind of lame. Saying 'You're lame' is like saying 'You walk with a limp.' Yeah, whatever, so does 50 Cent, and he's done all right for himself."— John Green


Holiday Gift Guide: Romance

I'm doing something new this holiday season; I wanted to give book recommendations that would make good gifts!  So I'm going to pick themes  and list books that I think are the best of the best, making great gifts to the book lovers in your life!  I will preface this by stating most of my recommendations will be YA, so keep that in mind!
Books to Buy for the Romance Book Lover! 

While I listed contemporary books to buy, I like to think of those as the "problem" books, so in my head romances are separate.  I love a good romance book, and teen romances are so much more emotionally intense sometimes!  Below are some of the ones I especially like!

Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins - My absolute favorite romance, how could anyone resist France, boarding school, and cute boys?
The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight by Jennifer E. Smith - Perfection in a book, this is a whirlwind of romance from take off to landing!
The Fine Art of Truth or Dare by Melissa Jensen - I love the writing style in this book, and the romance is super sweet! Fine art and finer boys wait inside these pages.
Remembrance by Michelle Madow - This is one indie romance that I feel in love with.  Soul mates, bonds across time, and beautiful scenes make this story one amazing story!
Jenna & Jonah's Fauxmance by Emily Franklin & Brendan Halpin - A fake relationship just for the cameras. A blown cover.  A real chance at love.  Too cute and a must-have!
Love & Sex: Ten Stories of Truth edited by Michael Cart - A collection of the truth behind romance and emotions and sex.  A collection for each teen from some really great authors!
All I Need by Susan Colasanti - A summer romance turns into a true love moment, but can these two love birds survive the distance between them?  Very cute and sweet!
Serial Hottie by Kelly Oram - Want a little danger with your romance?  Then lay your hands on this because there may or may not be a murderer on the prowl and maybe he's the one!
The Espressologist by Kristina Springer - Want to know who's your "perfect match"?  Look no further than the Espressologist.  But while she can see love for others, she can;t see it for herself.  Super cute, and I love the coffee element!
Meant To Be by Lauren Morrill - A trip to London is just teeming with possibilities in this romance.  A 2012 debut, everyone's been talking about this amazing book!
