Top Ten Romance

 
 Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Each week a new Top Ten list will be posted. Everyone is welcome to join. Link back to The Broke and the Bookish so everyone can check out other bloggers' lists. It's a fun way to get to know fellow bloggers.

This week is all about the romance- it can be fave hate-to-love romances, insta-loves, slow burn- you name it. I decided to just go with ten favorite romances I've read recently (more or less), and since I prefer the slow burn variety they probably tend that way, although not all of them necessarily. So here are my picks. 

Starflight (Starflight, #1)

Doran and Solara were a great hate-to-love couple, and as much as I couldn't stand Doran at first I was kinda rooting for him at the end. Nice job Melissa Landers! 

The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet (Wayfarers, #1)

Rosemary/ Sissix and Ashby/ Pei. I thought the first one was done so delicately, handled so well... you know what I mean if you've read it. And Ashby/ Pei I was just rooting for them.  

Fangirl

Cath and Levi.  

Alex + ADA: The Complete Collection

Alex and Ada. 

The Complete Morgaine (Morgaine Cycle)

Morgaine and Vanye.  

Discount Armageddon (InCryptid, #1)

Verity and Dominic are fun. 

The Deep End (The Country Club Murders #1)

I'd be remiss if i didn't include Ellison and Anarchy Jones- or is it Hunter Tafft? Elly just can't make her mind up...

Sanctuary Bay

Sarah and Ethan. 

A School for Unusual Girls (Stranje House, #1)

Georgie and Wyatt.

  1. I loved Solara and Doran's relationship because it just felt so realistic, the way it progressed!

    1. I agree! I'd like to see more of them in Starfall even though I know they're not the focus. The relationships in Long Way are pretty good for a space opera.

  7. I avoid romance wherever possible so I'm not likely to go looking at any of these! I did try the Seanan McGuire one and it was ok but I'm not a fan of the author's writing in general. Not sure why but just not my thing! Nice to see a non instaluv list though!

    1. If you like space and SF you might like A Long Way. It was really quite good.

    1. I liked Sanctuary Bay a lot. It's a YA with a nice creepy SF vibe.

  21. I've only read starflight and fangirl from your list but I loved the romance in both of them, even though Doran was a jerk at the start! Great post!

    ReplyDelete
  22. I need to read some of these. I do agree with Fangirl though - loved Cath and Levi.

  23. Cath and Levi are such a great pair! :)

    Thanks for visiting my blog earlier.

  24. Solara and Doran are definitely my favorite couple that I've read recently! That romance was written so perfectly AND it's a bonus that it all happens amidst such a fun plot!

    ReplyDelete
  25. I'm a slow burn fan myself and I love that you included The Deep End. I normally can't stand love triangles but I'm okay with this one and I can't make up my mind about Anarchy and Hunter either so I don't blame Ellison a bit!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Slow burn romances are my favorite! I haven't read anything by Melissa Landers yet; Starflight sounds like a good place to start!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Discount Armageddon! I so agree with that romance -- it's so well done!

    ReplyDelete
  28. I just bought Starflight recently but haven't gotten a chance to read it yet. Now I'm even more excited! Fangirl is one of my favs too! I love Rainbow Rowell. Great list!

    ReplyDelete
  29. I haven't read any of these books yet. But since I love romance novels I really like the sound of these books. Fangirl has been on my TBR list for a while.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Cath and Levi are definitely favorites of mine. I also keep hearing good things about Starflight so may give that one a try as I do find the hate-to-love relationships pretty entertaining.

    ReplyDelete
  31. I have not read ANY of these because I fail, BUT I just bought Starflight and The Long Way to a Small Angry Planet (thanks, tax return!) so I am excited about those, especially since the romances are so great! And I should probably read Fangirl soon. Because I may be the only person left who hasn't bwhaha. Great picks!

    ReplyDelete
  32. I've heard really good things about Melissa's books (her earlier series specifically), but haven't read any of her books. Always, Rainbow's books are in the same category (heard a lot), so thanks for the reminder. :)

    Thanks for visiting Finding Wonderland, Greg.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Even though Fangirl wasn't really for me, Levi was certainly a cutie.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Rosemary and Sissix were such a delight to read about! Now you've got me super eager to read Starfall and A School for Unusual Girls, which both look awesome. :)

    ReplyDelete
  35. I haven't read any of the ones that you've featured here, but Sanctuary Bay sounds intriguing!

    ReplyDelete
  36. I love Fangirl!! I really should re-read it. I've heard great things about Starflight and The Long Way...sounds amazing. Great list, Greg!

    ReplyDelete
  37. FAN GIRL!!! YES!!! I am a huge Rainbow Rowell Fan. I have met her 3 times. I was not a huge fan of the off shoot book Carry On. But I think I am in the minority there.

    ReplyDelete
  38. A lot of books on here I've not heard of but I am completely with you on Cath and levi, I love them together. Also, Rosemary and Sissix and Ashby and Pei. I mean, the relationships in general in Long Way were great but the romantic ones were also really good. They were just different and weren't forced on you.

  39. I couldn't do this prompt because of my romance allergy. XD
