Created by and with thanks to That Artsy Reader! This week’s theme is a type of blog post I love to read, but turns out I have NO talent for creating. So I offer a mirror image: here are five books I loved so much, I’d love to read more like them–please give your recommendations!
1. The Soulmate Equation by Christina Lauren
I’ve never met a Christina Lauren book I didn’t love, and I’ll take any recs for romance authors who come even close to their style–but specifically if you’ve got any romances with a tight-knit family and a borderline commitment-phobic heroine, send them my way!
2. The Flatshare by Beth O’Leary
Wanted: inner-city romances, preferably London-based, featuring excursions to tiny beach towns…
3. Daisy Jones and The Six by Taylor Jenkins Reid
Look, we all know Taylor Jenkins Reid is inimitable, and in any other hands, the documentary-format of this one might have been exhausting rather than brilliant. So I’ll settle for recs for angsty romances between musicians, if you’ve got any!
4. Wicked Game by Jeri Smith-Ready
I haven’t read anything like this in a while, and it makes me miss that late 00s/early 10s vampire trend. On the off chance that I missed any, send me all your funny, tongue-in-cheek vampire romances–or else just send me your vampires with unusual lore. I’ll take all the vampires I can get!
5. Ninth House by Leigh Bardugo
Two words to end this search for recs: dark academia.
