Top Ten Tuesday: Ten Books To Read If Your Book Club Likes Romance


top ten tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. The feature was created because The Broke and Bookish are particularly fond of lists (as are we!). Each week a new Top Ten list topic is given and bloggers can participate.

 Today’s Topic: Ten Books To Read If Your Book Club Likes Romance


These are some of my favorite YA romance novels!

1. and 2. Openly Straight and Honestly Ben by Bill Konigsberg

openly honestly-ben

Everyone needs a little bit of humor (and well-crafted plot & characters!) mixed with their romance!

3. Last True Love Story by Brendan Kiely


This is a love story to love stories.

4. and 5. Olivia Twisted and Olivia Decoded by Vivi Barnes

Olivia Twisted Olivia Decoded

Oh, Z. There is just something so fascinating with a bad boy who isn’t that bad but bad enough.

6. Winger by Andrew Smith


Oh, Winger. Such truth in what is on a 14-year-old’s mind.

7. Life in Outer Space by Melissa Keil

life in outer space

Nerdy boy + awesome girl should equal cliche, but in this novel it equals warm and fuzzies.

8. Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell


There are two romance stories in Fangirl, and they are both swoony.

9. Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe by Benjamin Alire Sáenz


Aristotle and Dante’s story fills your heart.

10. Tyrell by Coe Booth


I wouldn’t exactly call this book a romance novel, but it is a novel that is awesome that happens to have some romance in it. Maybe the book club needs a bit of a different type of romance 🙂

Which romance novels would you recommend?

  1. I almost skipped this post because I thought, “I don’t read romance novels,” but I was thinking of the typical adult genre.

    I do like a good love story!

    Aristotle & Dante was SO AMAZING!! I gave it to my cousin who recently came out to me. It’s just such an exceptional story in so many ways – as much a story of friendship as of love.

    I haven’t read any of your others, though I have long wanted to read Fangirl.

    Some of my favorites include Looking for Alaska (amazing & heart-breaking), Beautiful Creatures, and in the grown-up realm, The Rosie Project.

    Great list!
