My Top 5 Favorite YA Couples

*Note: This post MIGHT CONTAIN SPOILERS and cause smiling, squealing, and the need to (re)read YA books.*

Happy Valentine’s Day!

As a single, book loving fangirl, there is no better way to celebrate Valentine’s Day than with a book, dessert, and friends. Bonus points if the dessert includes chocolate and the book has a ship that you just can’t jump off.

There are so many book romances that I have fallen in love with over the years, but I tried my best to narrow down my favorites. I usually have a hard time with posts like this because I find it unfair to the characters I haven’t met yet. My list is also totally biased to the fantasy genre since I tend to read more fantasy books.

Grishaverse Comes to Netflix!

Last Thursday, the YA book community was abuzz with exciting news. Leigh Bardugo’s Grishaverse will be coming to Netflix! The eight-episode season (hopefully the first of many) will be titled Shadow and Bone and combines the stories of both Shadow and Bone and Six of Crows. In terms of the story timeline, the first season is book one of Shadow and Bone and book zero of Six of Crows.

I was at work when I saw the announcement, and it took every ounce of my self-control to not jump up and squeal. Trust me…it was hard. The Six of Crows duology was my doorway into the Grishaverse and introduction to Leigh Bardugo’s writing. She quickly became one of my favorite authors. With this in mind, I am both excited and nervous to see what the Netflix adaptation will bring. I understand that some aspects will be different and that there might be difficulties during the book-to-screen process. However, I have hope that Netflix will do their best to bring the stories alive.

Now, moving onto a HUGE question…

Who do you think should be casted?
