I'll recommend Michelle Diener's Dark Horse which is an enjoyable science fiction romance. Or Sarina Bowen's The Year We Fell Down which is an excellent new adult romance.

I love this book club!
So far, you have introduced me to six Authors that I have never read before. Although I have not liked all of the books, I've liked far more than I've disliked and I truly appreciate the opportunity to participate.
Since my reason for joining the club is to have access to books I might not otherwise read, I really don't have any recommendations to share, but I am very interseted in the opinions of the other members and I wanted to let you know what a fabulous job you are doing and that I am so happy to be a part of it.
Mmmmmm .... Dark Horse sounds interesting ...

I agree that Dark Horse sounds interesting, just from the title alone.

I joined the club recently, so I am not sure what books were discussed before the Wild Card...
But I believe, that maybe one of the Cassandra Clare's Mortal Instruments books could be interesting to discuss?
Well, honestly, I haven't read any of the books. But my two teenage daughters binge-watched the Shadowhunters TV series based on these books this summer and as a result proceeded to read all the books in the primary series - and then one spin-off, and another spin-off... (always gratefull for a TV show that makes the kids read, right?)
And...apparently just like many of their peers, they got completely hung on Malec romance line - like Magnus and Alec - and clearly, in their minds, the gender does not play the role, the feelings and romance of the story does. And I like that a lot.
On the other hand, discussing some issues with my 13 years old daughter, I discovered, that since Malec is a romance between an 18 years old boy and an 800+ years old warlock, ir does not only breaks gender barries, it provides a fictional precedence of breaking the age barrier too, where - honestly - I still have some hookups... I would rather my teenage daughter would not date somebody my father's age...
So... yep, I am going to have to read the series now, so that I can discuss things with my daughters properly, but for sure, there are lots of dimensions to address there... ;o)
