Branson Faulk
A book titled “Five Feet Apart” is located in the Eagle High School library. The book was written by Rachael Lippincott.

Whether one has a fantastic partner or is single as a pringle, these books are the best way to get into the season of love. Below are four great books to read if one is trying to get into the spring and Valentine’s Day mood.  

First on the list is “The Selection” by Kiera Cass. “The Selection” follows a girl named America Singer who is picked to be in the Selection. The Selection is a competition where 35 girls compete for the heart of Prince Maxon.  

Though living in a castle may seem nice in this world, rebels constantly attack it. In this dangerous dystopian Y/A romance, America must choose between the life she always envisioned for herself or the life she’s starting to see a new future, a royal future.

The next book is “Five Feet Apart” by Rachael Lippincott, Mikki Daughtry and Tobias Iaconis. This young adult book shows the life of two Cystic Fibrosis (CF) patients. CF is a disease that affects your lungs and causes a buildup of mucus. 

CF causes two people to always stay six feet apart to protect their lungs. But when the two begin to feel like the space is less protection and more punishment, Stella Grant and Will Newman must decide if love outweighs the danger of being together.  

According to,What if they could steal back just a little bit of the space their broken lungs have stolen from them? Would five feet apart really be so dangerous if it stops their hearts from breaking too?” 

The third book is “A Thousand Boy Kisses” by Tillie Cole. It follows Poppy Litchfield and Rune Kristiansen. Rune is from Norway, and when he moves to a small southern town, he meets his sunny neighbor, Poppy. Soon, the two become inseparable, but when Rune has to move back to Norway, they are heartbroken. 

At 17, his parents moved them all back to the southern town next door to Poppy. However, something is different, something Rune can’t quite put his finger on.   

According to,One kiss lasts a moment. But a thousand kisses can last a lifetime. One boy. One girl. A bond that is forged in an instant and cherished for a decade. A bond that neither time nor distance can break. A bond that will last forever. Or so they believe.”  

In each of these cute romances, readers can feel the spring and love seep from the pages. Whether one is looking for cute, sad, or dystopian, one can find that romance in every story on this list.  

Every book on this list can be found at Barnes and Noble and/or Amazon.
