A Love Letter to Sad Romance

Do you have a sub-genre of book that you’re drawn too?

Most of these books are pretty polarizing with people. Why are they polarizing? I honestly think it’s because these books are mismarketed…People go in expecting happy romances and you aren’t going to get that because that’s not what it is supposed to be.

I happen to be a big fan of them though, I welcome all the dark and twisty as a girl who reads a lot of romance…. and I love “sad romances” aka books that have some grief, make you think a whole lot about life, that happens to have a love story. I feel like every one of these books smashed my heart a little but also reminded me how precious life is.

These are some favorites:

  • After I Do by Taylor Jenkins Reid (review)
  • Just Last Night by Mhairi McFarlane (review)
  • You Were There Too by Colleen Oakley
  • One True Loves by Taylor Jenkins Reid (review)
  • In Five Years by Rebecca Serle
  • The Dinner List by Rebecca Serle
  • More than Words by Jill Santopolo
  • The Two Lives of Lydia Bird by Josie Silver
  • Dear Emmie Blue by Lia Louis (review)
  • Meet Me in Paradise by Libby Hubscher (review)
  • My Oxford Year by Julia Whelan
  • The Lies That Bind by Emily Giffin
  • The Float Plan (review)

Are you a fan of any of these books? Or do you have a sub-genre you love?

See you later,
