Hello everyone. Today I want to battle two authors instead of books. Lets see who will win.
In this corner we have!
And her Competitor!
You may notice these are two very well know YA romance writers. Hence the battle. Which is better? Which has a better romance? Well lets see which wins.
Battle 1: Romance
Dessen: Sweet and romantic. Like how you picture a Hallmark movie playing out. Honestly most of the books you can picture as a Hallmark movie. Another good word, swoony.
West: Drawn out. Most of the romance takes a long time to come to fruition. For most books you have a weird love triangle that gets resolved in the end.
Winner: Dessen. Most romance, less drama.
Book pick: Along for the ride.
Battle 2: Female Leads
Dessen: Strong woman who come from tragic pasts. Each with their own strength and need for a friend. But each with the power to overcome.
West: Girls who grew up with not so much tragedy. Some are popular, independent, or shy. But most without tragedy.
Winner: Tie! Both have strong leads but in their own ways. I prefer West but others would like Dessen.
Dessen: The Moon & More Goodreads
West: Lucky In Love Goodreads
Final Battle: Swoonworthy Love Interest
Dessen: Strong, independant, and definately swoonworthy. Each love interest has a past, a sexy look, and a want to make the girl happy.
Winner: West. I just love the love interests. They each make me happy.
Suggested Read: By Your Side Goodreads
Overall Winner: TIE
Both authors have their own ways to write wonderful swoony, hilarious, and downright silly romance that any reader will love. If you haven’t tried them out I would highly suggest it. See above suggestions.
