The Sun Is Also a Star Readalikes

How excited are you for the movie adaptation of Nicola Yoon's dreamy romance The Sun Is Also A Star? If you can't get enough of love-at-first-meet romances, try these books.

My favorite parts of Yoon's novel are Natasha and Daniel's discussions about the multiverse and alternate realities. Another story that incorporates parallel realities is Love That Split the World, where Natalie must travel into another dimension to save Beau, the boy she loves. 

The manga Orange also involves a time-traveling romance. Naho must follow instructions in a letter from her future self to save her friend Kakeru. It concludes in Orange Part 2.

Love stories like Yoon's that leave me guessing about the long-term fate of the couple always capture my heart. Eleanor & Park ends in a way that seems realistic but leaves the door open for other future possibilities for the main characters.

If you enjoy romances that take place in one day, Nick & Norah's Infinite Playlist will fit the bill and make you laugh. Check out the movie too.

Speaking of movies, The Sun Is Also a Star reminds me of Before Sunrise because it's about a couple who fall in love in one day while sharing deep conversations about life.

And if you need one more tearjerker romance to watch, don't forget that Yoon's first book, Everything, Everything, was also turned into a film.

Here's hoping that we all find love that spans the multiverse!
