“Ah, to be young and feel the bitter sting of love.” – Dumbledore
I love this YA trilogy from Stephanie Perkins. It embodies the feeling of falling in love, to find that one person who’s made for you, your true love. I’m talking about true love, not true crush or serial love-ships, but that individual that you know to your core is the one for you. The thought of leaving doesn’t exist, through rain or shine. It’s the two of you; past, present and future.
Of course these stories are about finding that person, so it’s not all sunshine and cakes. It’s just like human nature – a roller coaster where feelings like fear, insecurities and doubts are in play with the good ones. The characters have to fight to get to terms with them, make mistakes. It’s what makes the relationships stronger. If you haven’t noticed by now, I’m a hopeless romantic. I love happy endings. This trilogy hit all my buttons. Oh yeah, if you like YA and romance, you won’t be disappointed.
