Did you know?

Fern-hunting parties became popular, allowing young women to get outside in a seemingly innocuous pursuit with less rigid oversight and chaperoning than they saw in parlors and drawing rooms. They may have even had the occasional romantic meetup with a similarly fern-impassioned beau. — Bree

"The Prodigal Sister" for Ophelia Devine. Faked deaths, scandal, and schemes!
Now that he had walked up to them, he couldn't exactly whirl around and get going. That would be rude. And was not, presumably, how straight men seduced their future wives.

Bookstorm: YA Fantasy
Hi friends! Am looking for a brainstorm of YA fantasy that you have read and enjoyed after the age of 18. For series, just the first book, please!

I second A Court of Thrones and Roses!

I just finished Ace of Shades by Amanda Foody. It was interesting enough to where I'll be looking out for the next books in line.

I'm currently reading Catching Stars by Cayla Keenan so I'll let you know how that goes. (Though it looks like it's free via kindleunlimted right now if you have that.)

Next up is Sky in the Deep by Adrienne Young.

I would die for Maggie Stiefvater's The Raven Cycle. The first book is The Raven Boys.

Ummm I tend to actively avoid YA but Codename Verity by Elizabeth Wein is classed as YA and was very good. Also Between Shades of Grey by Ruta Sepetys? I can't remember how to spell her last name >.>

I also avoid YA but I would die for the Gemma Doyle trilogy - A Great and Terrible Beauty by Libba Bray. (Yes, this is where I discovered my love for the name Pippa.)
Ella Enchanted by Gail Carson Levine (the move is a TERRIBLE adaptation of the book)
Spindle's End by Robin McKinley

they're both twists on classic fairy tales, but I LOVE them. Spindle's End isn't strictly YA I would say, but it's close. I think they're a little different than the rest of the suggestions, but not too different? Idk. I wish I had more spare time to read, but I don't.
