10 YA Ships You’ll Want to Board Immediately
Dishi (Dimple + Rishi) – When Dimple Met Rishi by Sandhya Menon
Love-to-hate shippers, you’re welcome for this STEAM-filled TREAT.
Swimue (Nimue + The Sword of Power) – Cursed by Thomas Wheeler and Frank Miller
Yes, Arthur exists and yes, there may be some ~tension~ between said young man and Nimue, but tbh, I’m very here for the literalpower coupling that is Nimue and the Sword of Power.
Ciro (Citra + Rowan) – Scythe by Neal Shusterman
These two are my most favorite slow-burn, independently-powerful, support-each-other-even-when-one-of-you-is-a-majorly-wanted-vigilante ship.
Dari (Ari + Dante) – Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe by Benjamin Alire Sáenz
If you need a good tender heart-squinch, embark here.
Lorie (Lennon + Zorie) – Starry Eyes by Jenn Bennett
Need a new level to your ship? Try this one: best-friends-turned-enemies-turned-back-to-maybe-something-more.
LJ+PK (Lara Jean + Peter K) – To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han
You know them, you love them, John Ambrose McClaren stans don’t @ me.
Malec (Magnus + Alec) – Red Scrolls of Magic by Cassandra Clare
H. M. S. Malec is ROYALTY.
Clace (Clary + Jace) – The Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare
When I tell you these two rocked my world upon first read, I am not kidding. Team Clace til I die.
Still (Stella + Will) – Five Feet Apart by Rachael Lippincott
Life is about balance right? Sometimes you need a ship whose crew is butterflies who use buckets of tears to swab the deck.
Wessa/Jessa (Will + Tessa & Jem + Tessa) – The Infernal Devices series by Cassandra Clare
I love Clace, don’t get me wrong, but these 3 characters and their immense love for each other hits different.
