Few things make me happier in romance novels than quirky, goofy, adorable heroines who don’t take themselves too seriously. This ULTIMATE list is for them. (And, you know, for all of you out there looking to add more books to your TBR lists. You’re welcome!)
Look, I’m generally not a fan of cheesy rom com movies. I’ve never been able to watch a Hallmark movie all the way through. But I’ve generally had better luck with Netflix movies. I mean, I did enjoy The Kissing Booth, based on the book by Beth Reekles, and I ADORED To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before, based on the book by Jenny Han. So when I saw the promo for Falling Inn Love, I figured Netflix had earned the benefit of my doubt. (If I’m being honest, though, if I’d seen the premise on a Hallmark movie, I would’ve run the other way, screaming. But I digress...)
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. Just because something is a cliche you’ve seen a million times doesn’t necessarily mean it’s a bad thing. That’s certainly the case of the old “there’s only one bed and these two people who are hopelessly attracted to each other now have to share it and pretend they aren’t hopelessly attracted to each other” trope. It’s something that makes me happy every time it comes up in a book or movie. With that in mind, here are a few of our all-time favorites.
There are very few things I even watch on TV anymore. Why? Because it seems like lately, when I love a TV show, it comes to a horrible, horrible end. Sometimes the ending is so horrible that it negates everything I enjoyed about the show in the first place and I feel like I’ve wasted years of my life fangirling for no good reason at all. I’m actually TERRIFIED that Supernatural is ending this year because what will become of my precious Dean??? So, with that in mind, I’ve come up with this list of the WORST TV endings that need to be rewritten by romance authors ASAP—because let’s face it, romance authors know how to give good ending.
Every romance reader knows that book slumps happen. There are just times when you can’t find a book you love. So, what’s a bookworm to do? You re-read an old favorite, of course! Nothing breaks a book slump like re-reading an old favorite. And today we’re featuring some of our all-time favorite contemporary romance re-reads. Enjoy!
And stay tuned for more re-read all-time favorite lists in the weeks to come…
I’m not one to say, “If you love author X, you’ll also love author Y.” I mean, we’re all different, and authors are all different, so it’s really hard to say who is going to like what and why. But sometimes when you run through every book your favorite author has ever written and you’re months away from a new release from them, you just need some recommendations—maybe a little guidance on what to do with your reading life when you’ve exhausted your supply of a particular author’s books. In this list, we’re focusing on what to do with your life when you’ve run out of Penny Reid books.
So, if you’re a Penny Reid superfan (like me), you know her books are hilarious, feature smart, sassy, take-no-crap kind of heroines, and also include sexy, supportive, alpha-but-not-alphahole heroes. These books all fit into one or all of those categories. Happy reading!
Love it or hate it, pregnancy romance remains one of the most popular tropes in the genre. And while my own pregnancy was nothing anyone would want to write a book about, I certainly have enjoyed reading the crap out of this trope. Here are some of our all-time favorite pregnancy romance reads. Enjoy!
