This is the Day by Daniel Blythe
Bitter story of a broken relationship. Witness how an “almost perfect” marriage got shattered through blurred communication and infidelities. Sad how sometimes, you thought you both had it all but still chose to not be contented with what you currently have up to the extent of risking your own relationship.

Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell
Twins, Cath and Wren entered college with different perspectives. Wren, being the outgoing one was ready to let go of high school and of Cath. Cath being the exact opposite of Wren, still holds on to what she used to have, including Simon Snow fan fiction. The story revolves around Cath’s love for writing, re-writing, reading and hanging out in Simon Snow fan-fiction forums, her grip with her family, and in finding her first love.
P.S. I loved Rainbow Rowell’s Eleanor and Park more.

Flipped by Wendelin Van Draanen
Juli was the first one who flipped towards Bryce. A liking she felt since the very first time she saw Bryce when they were both seven years old. She held on to her feelings until eighth grade, when she finally realized that Bryce isn’t really as breathtaking as she believed him to be. On the other hand, the same time that Juli is starting to drift away, Bryce suddenly realized that Juli is truly wonderful. A story of young love told in a way that would somehow remind us of our own.
