Hi friends, sorry this post is late and that I missed yesterday’s. I have the flu, but there is no way I was going to miss this top ten tuesday topic. I like romance. I like romance novels. I like romance in novels that aren’t really about romance. If a story doesn’t have romance, I will often make up a secret romantic plot between the characters. I even did it when I read Metamorphosis in high school. There are not a lot of things that I dislike in fictional romance, as long as it’s done well or feels captivating to me.* I looked through some of my favorite romantic novels and compiled this list of things that I like best. Let me know in the comments what you like, or don’t like, about romance in books. Also always looking for book suggestions, so lay them on me!
Thanks to The Broke and the Bookish for hosting this weekly book meme.

Oh, I LOVE the way you set up your list! Great job giving examples – I’ve got some new books to check out!
Thanks! Since romance is kind of my jam, I didn’t want to leave any of my favorites out.
I definitely need to check out some of these books! Thanks for giving recommendations! 🙂
Of course! Thanks for reading. I liked your list a lot!
Great list and great examples! I love 2nd chances and the characters who fall in love while working together. Magical realism is a topic I want to explore more so I’ll have to check out the ones you’ve mentioned!
Fun! Hope you got some good suggestions. These are some of my favorite. If you haven’t read I’LL GIVE YOU THE SUN, I definitely recommend it in terms of magical realism and just being a great story.
I also love when friends get together. A relationship has a much stronger base when you’ve been friends first, and don’t see one another purely as romantic and sexual partners.
Agreed! Thanks for commenting!
I love how you did your list!! So visual! I’m going to have to look at some of these and add to my TBR!
I love that you provided examples for each of your likes. There are definitely a few titles I’m more interested in after seeing them on your list.
Seriously, how do you make your lists look so cool? Teach us your ways! But amen to sex-positive YA! We need more of that!
I love the way you did your list with examples! Love your blog 🙂
Thank you! That is SO sweet!
