I’m not one to say, “If you love X author, you’ll also love X author.” 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 Kristen Ashley books.
First of all, I’m going to address the Goodreads list of “best” romances of 2019. Frankly, it’s a crock of crap. Are there some great books on there? Sure. Are they all actually romance novels? Nope. Are indie authors woefully unrepresented? Yep. And I guess we’re just supposed to assume there were no good historicals released in all of 2019? Sorry, no. Not buying it. Given the number of traditionally published, highly hyped, super expensive books on that list, I’m betting their list was largely publisher bought-and-paid-for. (Just my opinion. I have no proof of that. But it’s my opinion and I’m entitled to it. So there.)
That said, we’ve put together THIS list of our favorite 2019 romances, and the favorites of our readers. (Actual readers, which I’m not sure if there were any of THOSE consulted for the Goodreads list. Just sayin’). Happy reading, y’all!
We’ve all played dump, date or marry at some point in our lives. It never really gets old, does it? With that in mind, we’ve got a good one for you. Which one of these new adult romance novel heroes would you dump, date, or marry? We’ve got our answers, even though it was anything but easy to decide (see below)...
Sexy mafia men fall into that great-in-romance-novels-but-not-so-great-in-real-life category, because while I wouldn’t want to get involved with them in real life, they can be sooooooo super sexy in a novel. So, with that in mind, here are our picks for the ULTIMATE mafia hero reading list. Fughetaboutit!
So you think all romance is same, huh? It’s all Hallmark Channel-y or Fifty Shades-type stuff, right? If you think that...wow, you couldn’t be more wrong. And we have just the list of books to prove it...
And much thanks to all the lovelies in Romancelandia Twitter (especially Sarah MacLean) who brought up this topic and forced me to add all these wonderfully weird reads to my TBR pile.
Tired of all the alphahole heroes in Romancelandia who spend more time building up their muscles than their brains? Well, then this is the list for you. Happy reading!
Why you shouldn’t EVER try to convince me your women’s fiction novel is romance
I’ve seen lots of misclassified books on Amazon lately. LOTS. OF. THEM. I don’t know if Amazon is shifting these books around erroneously, or if the authors/publishers are making mistakes, but whatever the case may be, I’m sick of it. I want to read romance novels. If I wanted to read women’s fiction, I’d go find some women’s fiction to read. There’s nothing wrong with women’s fiction, but it’s NOT romance.
I usually prefer my paranormal romance to feature vampires and shifters, but this year I thought, what the heck, let’s change it up a bit and recommend some ghost romance. I mean, ghosts need love too, right? At least Enzo did when he died on The Vampire Diaries...but I digress ... Anyhoo, here are some awesome ghost reads for your TBR pile. Enjoy!
