Top 5 Wednesday – Favorite Romance Novels

Hi everyone and welcome to Top 5 Wednesday! Top 5 Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted on a Goodreads group, the link to which I’ve included here in case any of you would like to join. Given that it is February i.e. Valentine’s Day falls in this month, the topics are fairly Valentine relate, today’s topic being Favorite Romance Novels.

Is it bad that it took me ridiculously long to compile this list?

I mean I have never been a big fan of Valentine’s Day and I am a fairly sappy person in general, but it took me SO LONG to find any book on my shelf that had Romance as its primary genre. SO VERY LONG! However, here are the ones I did find eventually –

THE FAULT IN OUR STARS BY JOHN GREEN

The Fault in Our Stars

Before all the haters come running just hear me out! I am constantly accused of liking TFIOS only because of the hype so I might as well clear this once and for all.

  • I read the book before I found out about the hype surrounding it. It was a completely non influenced decision
  • I actually enjoy John Green’s books. A lot of people aren’t able to relate to his characters but I am about the age of the characters he writes about and I really do relate to them so much
  • I’ve never really enjoyed reading “cancer books” because I feel like its an overused trope now, but TFIOS was the first one that I ever read and it kind of hit me hard
  • If read without the hype in mind, it is a great book.

ELEANOR AND PARK BY RAINBOW ROWELL

I loved reading Eleanor and Park! It was just beautiful.


TO ALL THE BOYS I’VE LOVED BEFORE BY JENNY HAN

15749186

While this is edging more towards contemporary, it also has a major romance factor in it and it did work out well.


FANGIRL BY RAINBOW ROWELL

This book makes the list only because of Levi. Levi’s a dream boat! ❤


A WALK TO REMEMBER BY NICHOLAS SPARKS

3473

A Walk to Remember is the only Nicholas Sparks novel that I’ve ever read and it was a nice read.

  1. Eleanor and Park nearly broke my heart. As for the John Green books, I felt the same when I read them in high school. I’m not sure how I would feel about them now, but I do think age does influence how well you relate to the books especially in YA.
