And here is my entry . . .
My YA OTP (one true pairing) is . . . Lola and Cricket Bell from Lola and the Boy Next Door - I can pick people from a book that comes out in six days, right? (I reviewed it already - link below)
For Lola and Cricket I have picked Dave Franco (though I really wanted to pick whoever the cover model was, honestly) and Mae Whitman
My review of Lola says a lot about why I love them (review) but they are both so real, separately they are characters that could be in any book and you would just have to fall in love with them but then you put them in a book together - with the scenes and dialogue that Stephanie Perkins wrote and BAM! it's hard to image anything ever better. (And I could say other stuff but it's still still not actually out yet so I don't want to be spoilery!)
Plus, one of them has the best fashion sense ever (well maybe both of them, now that I think about it) and the other $#$#$#s stuff (yeah, I don't remember how long it takes till that's all revealed and it's fun so I'm not telling!).
I adore them. Please, please let them be all over the third book.
