10 Most Romantic Lines from YA Novels

We could all learn a thing or two from young love.

(SPOT.ph) Ahh, love. We’ve found our joy in it, and sometimes our hearts also get broken by it. Yet here we are. We still can’t stop talking about love, because of love. They say actions speak louder than words, but you can’t deny the fact that there’s something romantic about being able to express in words exactly how you feel about a person or a moment. Most of us aren’t exactly blessed with the talent to put our emotions into words, so we’re lucky we have a ton of YA authors who can do the job for us.
