5 Royal Wedding: A Princess Diaries Novel by Meg Cabot
Even though a third Princess Diaries movie is not happening (bummer, right?), it won't stop us from reading Meg Cabot's new book! We definitely missed Princess Mia and we're just so stoked for her fairy tale wedding with her high-school sweetheart Michael Moscovitz.
6 Finding Audrey by Sophie Kinsella
Sophie Kinsella is probably one of the queens when it comes to the chick-lit genre! Follow the story of Audrey, a girl who is suffering from anxiety disorder as she makes her way to psychological recovery with the help of a guy who finally "gets" her. This book is heartfelt and so honest that you'll find it hard to put it down. Ladies and gentlemen, Sophie Kinsella does it again!
7 The Improbable Theory of Ana and Zak by Brian Katcher
This is one adorkable read that it not difficult to fall in love with! Our favorite thing about this page-turner would probably be the super witty banter between polar opposites Ana and Zak. We bet you'll also love the many pop references all throughout the book.
8 It's About Love by Steve Camden
Luke and Leia (their dads are Star Wars fans) find a connection through their love for film. Will their modern-day love story get a happy ending just like in the movies or will real life get in the way? One thing's for sure, you'll feel kilig with Luke and Leia's insane chemistry!
9 The Statistical Probability of Love At First Sight by Jennifer E. Smith
Now this is one book you'll love at first sight! There are lots of classic boy-meets-girl stories out there but we're telling you, this book is like no other! In the era of Tinder, it's heart-warming to read about soulmates meeting each other while waiting for their flight. We're hoping someone turns it into a chick-flick very soon.
10 Between Us and The Moon by Rebecca Maizel
If you're a fan of Jenny Han and Stephanie Perkins, it's no surprise that you'll love this book. Trust us, it's not the typical saccharine summer romance story–it's much more than that and we can't wait for you to finally read it.
