Love it or Hate it the Booklist Part 2: Boys in (or out) of Love

Day two of our teen romance extravaganza is all about guy friendly romances. These are books about real guys, dealing with real guy issues, and if a girl happens to come along and mess everything up...well that's how we have the story.

Heavy Metal and You by Christopher Krovaton: Heavy Metal music is the only thing that matters to Sam, until his girlfriend enters the picture. I talked about this book a while ago, and it is still one of my go to books. We get Sam's play lists (get your iTunes account open) in addition to this guy friendly romance.

Sleeping Freshmen Never Lie by David Lubar: Scott will join about any club or activity to get closer to the girl of his dreams, but is she really the girl for him in the end? Another Katie favorite, this one will have you laughing about Scott's crazy freshman year in High School.

An Abundance of Katherines by John Green: Colin has a "type". He only dates girls named "Katherine" not "Catherine" or "Kathryn" but "Katherine". When the 19th Katherine dumps him, he tries to figure out the mathematical reason why this happens. Did I mention the road trip he also takes to get over #19?

Storky: How I Lost My Nickname and Won the Girl by Debra Garfinkle: Michael is starting his freshman year in high school, and leaves us this hysterical account of his (and hism mom's) adventures in love.

Drums, Girls and Dangerous Pie by Jordan Sonnenblick: Stephen is trying to manage 8th grade and his little brother. When his brother gets sick, Stephen throws all of his energy into drumming. Oh, there is girl trouble in there too.

Slam by Nick Hornby: Sam's life changes drastically when he becomes a father at age 15. With some help from Tony Hawk and time travel, Sam starts to figure out his life.

Son of the Mob by Gordon Korman: Vince's life is constantly in danger, mainly because he is the son of a mob boss. However, things take a turn for the worse when he starts dating daughter of an FBI agent.

That's all for today, and tune in tomorrow for some fantastical romance!
I'll see you @ the library!
