Ah, romance. You hear a lot about spring flings inspiring a list of sweet romantic reading, but I'm partial to reading a good romance novel during a long, hot summer day lazing around the pool or relaxing on a blanket in the park. And they don't have to be your traditional mass market paperback steamy romances or saccharine rom-com's either — when it comes to my summer romance reading all I need is a story that's going to be page-turning, butterfly-inducing, and no holds barred on the feels. But if you're looking for a good place to start building your summer romance reading list, YA contemporaries are a great place to start. First love definitely makes for some of the most dramatic, intense and fun-to-read plot lines.
Below are 13 romantic quotes from YA novels with some of the most heart-wrenching, feels-inducing, hope inspiring, all around obsession worthy romances around. If you're looking to lose yourself in some romance drama that's not your own, add these to your summer reading list. Whether you pop one in your carry on for that long-haul flight or just devour it on the beach, you won't regret choosing one of these as a companion.
