ROMANCE WEEK: The Romance Reader Book Tag

Hello! We are once again doing our little Romance Week posts. We hope you enjoy all the romance-themed activity, and if you’re interested in previous years you can find them here!

We found this cute (very apt) book tag over on Kerri McBookNerd, and we had to do it ourselves!

The Prompts

What age did you start reading romance novels?

Bree: Umm…*checks blog archive* Pretty sure the first romance I read was The Hating Game by Sally Thorne and you can check out my review for it here, but that was in 2018.

Tree: I read a ton of YA romance when I was in high school, but I didn’t start reading romance romance novels until I was about 22 ish.

If you could pick one hero to meet from your favorite romance novels who would it be and why?

Bree: Oooooh it would definitely have to be Alex from All the Feels! He is just the most hyper, sarcastic dude and I just want to be besties with him and wreak havoc on LA!!

Tree: I don’t like meeting people (lol) but I always say Alex Claremont – Diaz from Red, White & Royal Blue because he is great. Or maybe Augustus Everett from Beach Read because why not.

Who are your favorite romance authors and why?

Bree: To name a few, Alexis Hall, Mariana Zapata, Helen Hoang & Talia Hibbert. And I love them because they write good romance???

Tree: I love Talia Hibbert, Kate Clayborn, Alexis Daria, Tessa Dare, & Sarah MacLean.

What is a favorite romance novel to re-read?

Bree: I think my most re-read romance is The Wall of Winnipeg and Me but that’s only if you don’t count series like Heartstopper (review) or Check, Please! (Tree’s review) as “romance.” I’ve read each of those 4 times lol.

Tree: I’ve reread The Love Hypothesis quite a few times. See my thoughts here if you’ve missed them. But if I was a historical comfort reread, I read The Duchess Deal by Tessa Dare. 

What book would you recommend to a non-romance reader?

Bree: Hmm, I started with The Hating Game but I feel like Well Met by Jen DeLuca is also a good “starter romance.” But if you want to do trial-by-fire, like I did when I made Quinn read his first one, it’s either The Wall of Winnipeg and Me (Tree’s review) or Red, White & Royal Blue (review)!

Tree: For historical romances I always suggest The Duchess Deal by Tessa Dare and for contemporary readers maybe People We Meet on Vacation by Emily Henry or The Love Hypothesis? It would depend on the person who was asking for the recommendation. I also recently recommended Seven Days in June by Tia Willams and Georgie, All Along (review) by Kate Clayborn because I had to.

Which is your favorite: contemporary, suspense, or historical and why?

Bree: Contemporary, of course! I lack interest in historical romances, and suspense romance seems like an oxymoron, and i’m not completely sure how it exists as a genre.

Tree: Contemporary is my favorite, but obviously I love historicals too.

Thanks for reading! We didn’t tag anyone, but feel free to tag us if you fill it out!

xoxo, Bree & Tree
