Top 5 Wednesday was created by gingerreadslainey and hosted by ThoughtsOnTomes – details about this group can be found on Goodreads. I haven’t participated all month because I’ve decided to cut back on the tag, and only do it a couple times a month instead of every Wednesday. Anyway, this week’s topic is favourite angsty romances. A perfect topic for me!
1. Jem & Tessa & Will – The Infernal Devices – Cassie Clare
This trilogy has very high levels of angst. Mostly from Will. I love it!
2. Futaba & Kou – Ao Haru Ride – Io Sakisaka
I couldn’t NOT put manga on this list, that would be a massive missed opportunity! I haven’t really read much romance manga but this is the one that stands out for me in terms of angst. A first love, second chance, AND a high school romance. A very angsty mix it makes.
3. Hayden & Tenley – Clipped Wings – Helena Hunting
I’ve read Helena’s other series which is so funny and silly so I wasn’t expecting this novel to be so dark and intense! This series also makes me want to get a bunch of tattoos and piercings.
4. Maise & Evan – Unteachable – Elliot Wake
Suuuper intense and full of angst. Since it’s a student/teacher romance though that’s pretty much a given.
5. Clementine & Emma – Blue is the Warmest Colour – Julie Maroh
Angst! I’m still very sad about this graphic novel 😦
So those are my choices! What are your favourites, romance readers? Also, please give me your angsty romance recs!
Until next time!
