YA Valentine’s Day Cards for Your Book BFF

 

1. Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli

Any SIMON reader knows how seriously we take Oreos in this fandom, so it only stands to reason that the sharing of snacks is the utmost expression of book nerd love.

 

2. The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas

We too hope to one day find that perfect person to rap the Fresh Prince theme song with. But until then, we’ll settle for reliving the love of THE HATE U GIVE‘s Starr and Chris.

 

3. Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo

Perfect to give to the book nerd Sun Summoner in your life!

 

4. The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue by Mackenzi Lee

Depending on what kind of person you are, your Valentine’s Day may or may not include a romp around the Palace of Versailles à la GENTLEMAN’S GUIDE.

 

5. When Dimple Met Rishi by Sandhya Menon

The perfect book nerd BFF / romantic partner is someone who encourages you to be yourself—but hopefully you didn’t soak them in coffee the first time you met.

 

6. Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard

We hope you’re giving this card to the Cal in your life and not the Maven.

 

7. The Selection by Kiera Cass

*tugs on our ear* Hey… we hope you have a Valentine’s Day that THE SELECTION‘s Maxon and America would approve of. Maybe involving strawberry tarts.

 

8. The Dream Thieves by Maggie Stiefvater

Book nerds can express their love in all kinds of ways. Sometimes that means candy and a hug, but sometimes it means fighting the world if your crush needed you to.

 

9. Lady Midnight by Cassandra Clare

The Shadowhunter Chronicles are full of all sorts of epic love, and we can only hope that yours is not as tragic, emotionally draining, or potentially devastating.

 

10. Unravel Me by Tahereh Mafi

*blows a kiss to the Reestablishment* for Warner

 

11. A Study in Charlotte by Brittany Cavallaro

Whether or not your ancestors were famous partners and friends, we hope you and your book bae have a day that’s as chaotically perfect as you are.

 

12. The Crown’s Game by Evelyn Skye

You know when you just can’t get someone out of your mind, and you’re pretty sure they’ve cast some sort of charming love spell? We’ve gotchu.

 

13. The Wish Granter by C.J. Redwine

THE SHADOW QUEEN may be dark, and THE TRAITOR PRINCE may be brutal, but this Valentine’s Day, we’re wishing for our OTP dreams to come true!

 

14. Caraval by Stephanie Garber

Try to make a pun about how legendary your love is while delivering this card to your bae.

 

15. Forest of a Thousand Lanterns by Julie C. Dao

Listen, sometimes you don’t need true love. You don’t need anyone but yourself. And we get that. We respect it. Our fave bad girl Xifeng is a strong, fierce, independent woman.

 

16. Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli

Because we can’t get enough of LOVE, SIMON and how freaking perfect Simon Spier looks on the big screen!! Feel free to email this anonymously.

 

17. Glass Sword by Victoria Aveyard

Please don’t use this one.
