Twelve books that capture the sparkle of first love

Zoraida Córdova is the award-winning author of The Vicious Deep trilogy and the Brooklyn Brujas series. At the BN Teen blog she tagged twelve books for fans of To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before, including:
Not the Girls You’re Looking For, by Aminah Mae Safi

Even though To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before is a heartwarming romance, there are truly poignant and sad moments, making it the perfect blend. Debut author Aminah Mae Safi also strikes that sweet spot. The star of the novel is Lulu Saad, who’s set on world domination with her three best friends. But everything she touches seems to go awry, including causing a scene during Ramadan. Lulu’s story is about a girl who’s a mess trying to make things a little less messy. To do this she needs to let people into her life and open herself up to love, friendships, and self-love.
