Some of the authors who I have read in the past who would fit this category are: Meg Cabot, Mary Janice Davidson, Diana Peterfreund and Megan McCafferty. For those of you who may not be familiar with these authors I suggest that you try them out. Out of these authors, Megan McCafferty has written two of my all time favorite characters: Jessica Darling and Marcus Flutie. Her Jessica Darling series is spread out over five books with the first being "Sloppy Firsts." She follows Jessica and Marcus through their unlikely and sometimes troubled courtship. It starts out as a high school romance but concludes when both characters are in their mid twenties. Jessica has an irreverent and snarky view of the world, which I enjoy immensely.
But the whole point of this blog post was to get suggestions of new and fun reads that will help get me out of this slump. So who should I try next?
For those of you who would like to read the Jessica Darling series here they are.
