I don’t read a lot of romance books or romance focused books, they’re just not really my cup of tea. That isn’t to say I don’t enjoy them though, I just need a very specific kind of romance book and I can be sold on it. For instance I’m always a sucker for modern royalty romances, I don’t know why but I just am! So this week for Top Ten Tuesday’s “Love Freebie” instead of listing the same romances I enjoyed over and over again (because I just don’t read a lot of them) I decided to showcase the romance books on my TBR I’m most excited to get to.
These titles are not listed in any particular order and I will link each one to their Goodreads page.
Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish.
It has now been moved over to That Artsy Reader Girl.
This is about a showrunner and her assistant who accidentally fuel a rumor about a potential relationship between them. As they begin spending more time together they realize there might be some truth to the rumor. It’s F/F romance with one of the characters being Jewish and the other Chinese American.
As I already briefly mentioned I’m a sucker for modern royalty romances, I don’t know what it is but I love them. This is probably one of the more popular ones out there and I have heard mixed things but I have to at least give it a try!
I’m so excited for this one, I just grin whenever I see the cover! It’s about an actor for a popular fantasy TV show who secretly writes fan fiction for his character and a woman who cosplays and writes fan fiction of the show as well. He asks her on a date after the internet attacks her for her plus size take cosplay on a character. I think this sounds so cute and I absolutely love the inclusion of “geeky” things like fan fiction and cosplaying!
After I read “It Ends With Us” I finally understood all the hype around Hoover as an author, she knows how to write an engaging story. So I was able to get this book for fairly cheap and decided to give her another go!
This one sounds so fun and I, like a lot of you, enjoy an enemies to lovers type of romance. This one is about a couple whose wedding is only a few months away and both want out of the relationship, however, who ever breaks the engagement has to pay for the non-refundable wedding expenses. They then try everything they can to get the other to break first including sabotage, pranks, and other emotional warfare.
I also enjoy the whole “fake relationship that leads to a real one” trope as well, which this book I think delivers. It’s also a M/M romance! It’s about the son of a rock star who is back in the public eye after his dad starts making a comeback and he needs a way to clean up his image and he finds the perfect boy to fake date. I can’t express how good this sounds!
After the gem that was “Red, White, & Royal Blue” I’m excited for whatever Casey McQuiston will come up with next. This is a F/F romance about a woman named August who develops a crush on another woman, Jane, who she sees on the subway everyday except the only problem is Jane is displaced in time from the 1970’s and August is determined to help her. Time travel? Yes, please!
Another cute, nerdy book and another “enemies to lovers” trope! Yay! Emily is roped into volunteering and helping her niece at the Renaissance Fair and she can’t stand the schoolteacher who happens to be in charge of the volunteer group. However, he acts completely different on the fair grounds and she has to decided if this is real attraction or just them playing their roles.
One of the darker sounding romance novels on my TBR this portrays a taboo relationship between a college student and her teacher. I’ve heard tons and tons of good things about this book though and the author.
Last but not least, this fantastic sounding “fake dating” book! Georgie gave up on her family’s home renovation business to become a clown who plans kid’s birthday parties, which she absolutely loves. However, she wants to change her image up by fake dating her brother’s best friend who is a former baseball star turned home renovator. We can all see where that’s going to lead, right? I love this trope.
