Happy Valentines Day! We wanted to celebrate by sharing some of our favorite romance novels. Let us know in the comments if you've read any of these, and if you have any recommendations!
Red White and Royal Blue by Casey McQuiston - In this semi-contemporary story, Alex is the American president's son. After an unfortunate incident involving cake, he is forced to spend time with Henry, the Prince of Wales, who happens to be his sworn enemy (*wink wink*). I can’t stop smiling when I read this story!
Felix Ever After by Kacen Callender - Felix Love worries that he will never experience his own epic love story (ironic considering his last name). He also has an elaborate scheme for revenge on a classmate, which may or may not land him in a love triangle (don’t worry, though - It’s a good one). This book made me so happy and got me out of a reading slump; If you’re into best friends-to-lovers, this one is for you!
The Fault in our Stars by John Green - The Fault in Our Stars is a story that you won’t be able to stop reading. You’ll fall in love with Augustus Waters and Hazel Grace's characters and get trapped in their journey through cancer, survival, books, and love.
Sun is Also a Star by Nicola Yoon - They have only one day together and a scientific checklist that supposedly leads to love. Will it work?
You Should See Me in a Crown by Leah Johnson - Liz has to leave her comfort zone if she wants to achieve her dreams. Putting herself out there is hard enough in her plan to become prom queen, but she makes an unexpected ally with one of her competitors.
The Henna Wars by Adiba Jaigirdar - Nishat is tired of hiding who she is. Trying to be true to herself, she finds herself in a henna competition with none other than one of her childhood best friends.
Beach read by Emily Henry - One writes cute romance stories, the other writes epic literary fiction. Both face impossible writer’s block and each other as insufferable neighbors. It seems like it's going to be a miserable summer,
especially when they create a dare to switch genres.
Geekerella by Ashley Poston - A nerdy twist on a classic fairytale- perfect for fans of comic cons, vegan food trucks, cosplay, and surprising relationships.
When Dimple met Rishi by Sandhya Menon - Dimple and Rishi attend a summer camp where they get off to a ~rocky~ start (involving spilled iced coffee, yes, that bad). Forced to work together, will they be able to put aside their differences?
What if it's us by Adam Silvera- It seems the universe itself has planned this romance, or wait was it just a coincidence, or maybe it wasn’t meant to be. This story is filled with so many adorable moments and hamilton references!
Again, but Better Christine Riccio - Shane tried to do everything right in college, academically at least. On the romance and social life side, everything feels wrong. She hopes to get a fresh start during her summer abroad in London. New continent, new Shane, what could go wrong?!
Serpent and Dove Shelby Mahurin - Lou is a witch, Ried kills witches. Due to some unforeseen, unfortunate, situations - they end up having to get married. A witch and a witch hunter bound in holy matrimony, what could go wrong, right? Set in old France, if you’re looking for an enemies-to-lovers that is both hilarious and full of magic, this one is for you!
