Norah is a good student. She gets good grades and hopes to be off to college after graduation. The only problem is her choice collage wants more extracurriculars. So Norah sets up a book club and an interesting group of people join. From Queen bitch Francesca to science geek Neil but one in particular has caught Norah’s eye James is a hottie and he has great taste in books (what more could you want right?) and Norah decides she will do whatever it takes to get his attention.

This was the first. So it’s top of the list status may have a small amount of bias. That being said it is a truly original story and started my love of romance books when I was only 13. Lori is a 15 year old girl who has been crushing on Sean one of the 3 boys next door. He is a senior and one of the popular kids at school. But at the end of this summer Sean will be driving away to collage so Lorrie hatches a plan to catch him. But when Sean is seen Making out With Rachel at a Party Lori knows she has to up her game and Sean’s brother Adam is more than happy to help her. But Adam has an dangerous streak and Lori needs to decide just how far she is willing to go for a shot at love.
these books are most definatly trashy and while I may have started reading them at a young age On rainy days these are still usually the books I snuggle down in bed with. these are my guilty pleasures innocent little tales of cookie cutter love. yes they are predictable but that is actually part of their draw. the only thing with this set of books is they do cover quite a range of ages while i feel that they are all able to be read by anyone within the age range i will put a * next to any that are set in collage / after highschool and may deal with older material.
well as i seem to have a poll at the end of every post.
