It’s summer, and love is in the air — particularly if you’re a hopeless romantic. We all know the type: dreams about falling in love, believes that love is the meaning of life, idealistic and sentimental. Now that I’m reading all of the wonderful romances available on Riveted this week for The Summer of Love, I’ve been thinking about love, and about how so many of my favorite YA characters have this trait in common. I guess I’m just a sucker for a person who believes in real, true love. In honor of our Summer of Love, I’ve put together a list of five of my favorite hopelessly romantic characters. Let me know who your favorites are in the comments! And be sure to check out our Summer of Love reads while you still can! Our extended excerpt of When Dimple Met Rishi and all of the other great Summer of Love reads will only be available until June 19!
