I’m still not much of a romance reader … that is until I found this sweet spot. Now I can’t get enough of these books. They are so much fun! I’ve made a list—kind of short, unfortunately—of books that might hit the right notes. Some are not as book-related as I would wish, some are not as romantic, but I’m having a blast when I find ones that are just right.
I recently read Little Bookshop of Lonely Hearts, and now I need to add “funny” as a descriptor of romance books about books to the list—which narrows it perceptibly. This one was almost too “romance” for me, but it was so uproariously funny, that it went on the list of my favorites.
Loving this niche genre so much, during the last NaNoWriMo, I started my own romance novel that revolve around books. I only got 40,000 words into a very rough draft and I’ve put it on the backburner now for some more pressing projects, but it warms my heart to know that I have my very own romance to get back into when the time comes.
