Hey, there, readers and friends. Since it’s been a minute since last I joined in a bookworm themed tag, today’s post is coming to you with one. This time, it’s perfectly seasonal with the Romance Book Tag – and if you didn’t know this was a thing, you aren’t alone! Neither did I.
Today’s tag is full of questions – and I mean, there’s a lot. As today is a “booktube Thursday,” some of these I answer in the channel’s new video, while others I answer down below, and others still I don’t answer because they simply don’t apply to my reading style or life.
With that all said, let’s get to answering some Romance Book Tag Q’s!
Of Romance and Favorite Tropes: A Romance Book Tag
An Underrated Romance You Wish More People Would Read
First question and I already feel as though I’m going to epically fail the answers. I don’t know that I have an underrated romance I want more people to read. I mean, I have my favorites, but I guess I don’t feel the need to champion books to everyone; I love to review books, but these are merely a reflection of my own personal feelings (how I felt while reading the book, whether it made me happy/sad, good, etc.) so I guess when I review a 4 or 5 star novel I AM recommending it, but am aware that it won’t fit every reader.
One romance I do adore that I don’t feel anyone talks about is The Runaway Princess.
An Overrated Romance You Wish People Would Stop Talking About
I don’t think I feel as though it’s “overrated” per se, but one I didn’t care for that everyone else seems to adore is One Day in December by Josie Silver (the characters… cringe). That said, I am curious about her upcoming release. Is that weird?
An Author You Used To Love That you have since abandoned
Hmmm… well, I haven’t read a novel by Colleen Coble in years, but not because I might not like her books, I just haven’t read them lately. Also, I never seem to pick up the more recent co-authored novels by Janette Oke despite the fact that years ago, I read her books all the time.
Oo, fun question. I guess I’d say in a broad sense, anything “old fashioned,” which can include love letters or a lot of hand-holding. But this isn’t really a trope, so… when done well, I adore the marriage of convenience and Best-Friends-to-More (because in a 90-minute film, it makes the romance more authentic if you have that building ground).
Best Book With Your Favorite Trope
Best romance/rom-com movie
Answered this question in the booktube video, but I’m answering again with different answers because there’s SO MANY! These include: Leap Year; Set it Up; To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before (both movies!); The Wedding Planner; and too many to name.
Your All-Time Favorite Romance
Nooo! Don’t ask me these questions. Ugh. I remember feeling really impacted by Barefoot Summer by Denise Hunter, and I was impressed with True to You by Becky Wade as well. Also, Carla Laureano’s ‘Supper Club’ series is SO GOOD.
There we go! A wrap on this book tag, 2020 edition! Have you joined this tag? If so, let me know where I can see it. Have you read any of these books I mention or do you want to read any of these? Comment all of your romance read favorites in the comment section!
