TBR: Romance Books I Want to Read

As an English major, I have read my fair share of books that I typically would not read on my own. While I have decided that I love Jane Austen, reading on a schedule because we have to, and reading for pleasure are two very different things. Sometimes, I need a break from all the articles, essays, and plays that I have to read and choose to read a steamy contemporary romance novel. Not that Shakespeare isn’t sexy, but it decidedly does not have any of the spicy aspects that new adult chick lit has. It’s nice to take a pause from early modern English and focus on something a bit more current. With that being said, I have compiled a TBR list (to be read) of romance novels that I cannot wait to read, and a few that I have read and recommend. Disclaimer: These books are definitely 18+!
