There's just something about young love!
I guess I was lucky. I met my husband when I was only 17 (just a few months before my 18th birthday.) I was still in high school, he was already out. We fell in love almost instantly and he couldn't bare the thought of me going away to school without him. So he applied late and was accepted. We went away to school together! (I must add that he had already been approached by the school to play football and it was just a coincidence that I was going there. But at that point, he didn't have concrete plans to go and the football coach was the one to help him get in last minute.)
We've been together almost 16 years, married for 12-1/2 and still going strong. Not too shabby for a teen romance! :)
I read a lot of romantic fiction, and women's fiction, which almost always has some romance in it. But I also read young adult fiction, the books that cross over a bit into women's fiction. I absolutely love a coming of age story and throw in some young love, perfect! Some of my favs: The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants series, The DUFF, The Gallagher Girls series.
So what about you?? Do you pick up a YA book from time to time for a little bit of young love??
