Top Ten Tuesday – Favorite Romance Books

Happy Tuesday! It’s time for Top Ten Tuesday, the weekly feature run by That Artsy Reader Girl where you choose ten books to fit a weekly prompt. This week’s prompt is a freebie that is supposed to somehow deal with love. I’ve decided to go with the obvious and talk about my favorite romance books.

Romance is not my favorite genre but I do enjoy a good romance when I’m in the right mood. Here are my favorites:

The Time Traveler’s Wife by Audrey Niffenegger

I have lost count of how many times I have read this book and I love it every time. I get that some people think the idea is creepy but I fell in love with this story as a teenager and just love it. It’s so unique and just a wonderful love story.

A Stitch in Time by Kelley Armstrong

Another time travel romance but this one is a new favorite. I read this in December 2021 and gave it 5 stars easily. The English setting, the time travel, a good mystery, and ghosts are wrapped together in this spectacular love story. I’m anxiously awaiting getting the second book in my hands to go back to this world.

A Walk to Remember by Nicholas Sparks

Another one I read as a teenager, this story is amazing. The book, the movie, both awesome. I know most people prefer The Notebook but I’m an A Walk to Remember girl through and through.

A Thousand Pieces of You by Claudia Gray

This trilogy is primarily sci-fi but has a heavy romance component. I love both parts and the romance is a great one. It’s a bit of a love triangle but really the one guy is just thrown in and never really a contender. I love how this couple is shown falling in love in all different circumstances through the multiverses. I’ve read this series twice to date and will definitely read it more times.

A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J Maas

This is actually a fantasy but I think we can all agree that’s it’s also a romance. I love Rhys and Feyre. This series is awesome but this one is definitely the best and oh boy, the smut is top-notch.

The Hating Game by Sally Thorne

This book is enemies-to-lovers at its best. It’s so funny and well done.

Matchmaking for Beginners by Maddie Dawson

I can’t say enough good things about this book that never gets the love it deserves. I’ve read it at least 3 times and I laugh and cry every time. It’s quirky and real and magical and just perfect.

The Meeting Point by Olivia Lara

This book totally took my by surprise. I expected a cute romance but I was totally into it and loved every minute. It’s a contemporary romance but with a twist that made it just unique enough to get 5 stars out of me, a rarity these days for romance.

The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo

This is a historical fiction/contemporary fiction/romance and I can’t say enough good things. It’s fantastic and I love it entirely as a whole. The true romance in there is such a gem. If you somehow haven’t read this one yet, do it!

If the Shoe Fits by Julie Murphy

This Cinderella retelling is adorable and I loved how it twisted the classic tale into a contemporary romance without feeling forced. The “mice” are the best and they alone are worth the read, it’s an adorable retelling.
