This is such a hard topic – basically every book in YA includes some form of romance! I managed to find a few that don’t have romance as the main focus, but all tend to include it in some way or another. I eventually managed to find a few, but even some of these still include tiny parts of romance!

This book focuses very much on overcoming grief, therefore (if I remember rightly) there is no romance in this one!

Again, this book has a very primary focus on a specific subject. Differently to above, this book focuses on crime, but I really enjoyed it.

As this fantasy is aimed at pre-teen, I don’t remember there being any romance in this novel. I still enjoyed it though!


Goodreads | Amazon

I would say there is romance in this series, but it’s definitely not part of the story.


Goodreads | Amazon

There would be the chance for romance in this novel, but it’s not really explored and I’m glad about that. It’s one of the few YA books out there that doesn’t focus on romance!


May your shelves forever overflow with books! ☽

  1. I was away on vacation for this week’s topic, which is so sad because I love it! I am not huge on romance, and always appreciate a book where it doesn’t include any. A Monster Calls was such a wonderful book. I’ve actually never seen that cover for it! It’s stunning! I’ve also read Miss P’s Home for Peculiar Children, which I enjoyed, BUT I cringed at the romance in that book… I could have done without.
