I really struggle with the genre of romance.
There are a few romance tropes that I really enjoy, but there are far more that I absolutely cannot stand. So actually finding a romance that I can say I really enjoyed has been very difficult.
In honor of February (the month of my boyfriend and my dateaversary, Valentines day, and our anniversary), I made an effort to read a few romances.
Overall, I had reasonable success. But there were two books that I just could not force myself to finish.
My Rating Breakdown:
- 5 Stars- 3
- The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer, Annie Barrows
- The Red Notebook by Antoine Laurain, Jane Aitken (Translation), Emily Boyce (Translation)
- The One Hundred Nights of Hero by Isabel Greenberg
- 4 Stars- 1
- 3 Stars- 0
- 2 Stars- 0
- 1 Star- 0
- DNF- 2
Thanks for reading!
