In August 2019, Taylor Swift released her seventh studio album, Lover, and I'm still not over it. The whole collection is a work of art. It's mastery. It's my favorite of her albums to date. When I heard Lover, I knew instantly that I had to do a YA book match-up for it. Four months later, and I think I've got it right. Let me know below if you agree!
I Forgot That You Existed
I Think He Knows
Miss Americana & the Heartbreak Prince
Death by a Thousand Cuts
Soon You'll Get Better
You Need to Calm Down
It's Nice to Have a Friend

One of my friends had a couple great milestones recently, so... I've come up with a list of twenty books she should read in celebration. Congratulations, friend! Much love always.
This list is comprised of books from five genres she likes, which I asked her to rate from 1-5. The number of books recommended accords with the rating she gave.
To the rest of you: it might seem like I recommend the same books over and over again. I assure you, I try to avoid this, but it is inevitable that I want to share books that make my heart scream. The following list of reviews for some of the books below explains my great love for them. I do not recommend books lightly. My recs are an honest compilation of my tastes.

The Lost Coast by Amy Rose Capetta
Most Likely by Sarah Watson
We Are the Perfect Girl by Ariel Kaplan
