Monday Morning Question: Romance books, suggestions please!



Good Monday morning everyone!  I hope you all had a great weekend and managed to get in more hours reading than I did.  The month is almost over and I have been working on next month’s reading theme.  I have decided being it will be February to go with Romance.  I am going to spend the month exploring all kinds of romance novels. Contemporary, classic, paranormal, trashy, YA, books from stereotypical authors of the genre, etc.   What I would love is for you all to share with me some titles to include in my to-read next month.   Now I believe I have the fantasy and paranormal romance covered.  What would be a good contemporary or classic romance novel to pick?  What about YA or what author comes to mind when you here someone say romance?  What is your favorite romance story of all time?  Please share in the comments and maybe I’ll pick your suggestion to read next month!  Thank you.

  1. Colleen Hoover definitely comes to mind. If you haven’t read anything by her I suggest you start out with Slammed. On the Fence and The Distance Between us by Kasie West are also really light, cute contemporaries!

  2. This is hard for me since most of the romances I read are also fantasy/paranormal.

    Garden Spells by Sarah Addison Allen – The genre is more magical realism than fantasy but it would be considered partially fantasy too.

    Watchers by Dean Koontz – This is more about the sci-fi, action, and suspense than romance but you might not have read it (it’s an oldie but a goodie) and there is definitely a romance too.

    Under the Never Sky by Veronica Rossi — YA (also older YA) sci-fi. The first of an overall fantastic trilogy.

    Mariana by Susanna Kearsley — historical fiction with some time travel (so, still fantasy but it’s mostly about the historical fiction and romance.

    The Shell Collectors by Hugh Howey — mostly it’s an environmental story and is the author’s first attempt at writing romance. But, it’s the only romance I’ve rated 4 stars or higher that has no element of fantasy or sci-fi whatsoever. So, I’ll include it.


  3. That’s a great idea for a Feb reading theme. :)

    For contemporary romance I would recommend a Julie James book. She’s pretty awesome. I especially loved Just the Sexiest Man Alive by her.

    I would recommend Howl’s Moving Castle as a YA/Middle grade book to read. I love the relationship at the center of the story in that one.
