My Favorite Romance Novels

Happy February friends! Most people think February and think "love", since Valentine's Day is mid-month. I am no exception to that rule. So this month, our topic focus is Romance. There are so many different types of romance novels that it can be difficult to know which direction you want to go in. You can have the ones by Nicholas Sparks to the ones similar in nature to 50 Shades of Grey.

Today, however, we're going to take a look at some of my favorite romance novels thus far in life (in no particular order). I have a soft spot for cliche romance novels (reminder: this is a judgment free zone!), so I'm excited to share this list with you. Have you read any (or all) of these? Let me know in the comments!
