Wise Words
When you are describing,

A shape, or sound, or tint;

Don't state the matter plainly,

But put it in a hint;

And learn to look at all things,

With a sort of mental squint.

~Charles Lutwidge Dodgson (Lewis Carroll)

A good book without romance: Cry of the Icemark (it's super minor, just a couple lines and just two adolescents feeling the beginning of love). It's also a series.

The Golden Compass- the only romance plays more of a part in the later part of the series, and it's not major

The Goose Girl- the Bayern series has romance, but it's not major.

Heir Apparent

The Heir series (like Warrior Heir)- there is romance, but it's mostly an action-packed series

Tamora Pierce (author)

In general, prefer books where romance doesn't play a major part Smile




If you're talking about books with romance more central to it....
Twilight is popular
Go to the Teens section of the bookstore and find a book with a dark cover (there's a high chance it'll be about a forbidden love)


Some classics with romance
Pride and Prejudice
Sense and Sensibility
Little Women (or any book by Jane Austen)

I would suggest the Uglies series except that there is some romance there, though it is not the main focus of the plot by far. Another book is Perfume, there is absolutely NO romance in this story whatsoever besides that of a man and innocence.

The Compound, though it's a little vulgar and disturbing O.O

Artemis Fowl series, though it's a little old but it's a fast read. Even though it's laid out for middle school kids to read, I still learn many SAT words from it and it has action in it. No romance until book ....6/7 I'm not sure Surprised

Oh and the Inkheart/Inkspell/Inkdeath series ^^ I don't THINK it has romance in it O.O But it's an imaginative book of fun Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

I LOVE the Artemis Fowl series. I still need to read a couple and maybe reread the earlier ones to refresh my memory after years of not reading them >.<

Hahaha I keep the entire series on my nightstand as a quick read before I sleep O.O
It takes 1 hour to read almost over 100 pages :DDDD And it's a good warm-up for any sort of essay or english-related text.

Not to mention it introduces new ideas of technology and several random facts about the world, like Taipei. Razz

Nice. I like reading lots of different works.

I want to get reading The Glass Castle by Jeannette Walls soon. I've also read the Heir Trilogy, Heir Apparent (not related to Heir trilogy!), ...and so many other books! I LOVE reading.

The inkspell series doesn't have ANY romance in it, you are right, Jay. The only love displayed is between family members.
