The best young adult novels have some of the most romantic, cheesy, and all around memorable book quotes you'll ever read. Some of them are even worthy of pick up line material. Whether you're a brave soul and like to meander up to a stranger at the bar or in your favorite bookstore to introduce yourself, or are a Tinder and online dating fan, these lines will definitely reel you in the bookworm of your dreams.
From John Green's remarkably witty and intelligent characters to Sarah Dessen's intricate and realistic love stories, the young adult genre is overfilled with perfect pick-up lines. As a book lover myself, there are a few on this list that would absolutely steal my heart. When it comes to pick up lines, they can be quite cheesy and lame, but if you deliver them in the right way (and not do it in a creepy fashion) it can be a great way to spark a new relationship.
