9 Of My Favorite Cutesy Romance Books

9 Of My Favorite Cutesy Romance Books

You all know how much I love cutesy romance reads. So in honor of Valentines Day, I thought I would put together a quick list of some of my favorites.

If I have reviewed the book here on this blog, I linked the title if you'd like to read the whole review!

Enjoy!

9 Of My Favorite Cutesy Romance Books


Forgotten by Catherine McKenzie
The romance between Emma and Dominique was the type of cutesy romance that I really enjoy. Though I will say that at times I wanted to scream at the two characters to just TALK to each other! But I liked that it was drawn out and a bit dramatic because it made perfect sense when considering the situations they were both still working through.

The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer, Annie Barrows 
While the romance in this one didn't take up very much of the book, I still really enjoyed it! It was a classic case of shyness, temporary denial, and misunderstanding where I just wanted someone to point out the obvious love interest to the two love birds. However, the scene where love was finally professed was absolutely wonderful. It was so perfect and it made me both laugh out loud and grin. 

The romance in this book was so perfect. I was rooting for it from the start. And I was so anxious that it would go south… But after a certain event, I wanted to stand up and cheer! I loved that Jane Steele kept referencing Jane Eyre and pointing out where Jane Eyre had gone wrong, which prevented Jane Steele from making the same mistakes. I thought this was so clever and a joy to read. 

Locked Out by L. M. Schukraft
I loved every second of this read! I would highly recommend picking this one up if you enjoy fast-paced, fun mysteries with elements of cutesy romance.

If you haven't checked this one out yet, bump it to the top of your TBR! :)

The Readers of Broken Wheel Recommend by Katarina Bivald
This story has one of my favorite romance tropes, so of course I was a total sucker for it!

The Red Notebook was an adorable little romance. I read it in just a couple of hours and I loved every second of it. The romance was definitely one that I was rooting for and the trope of the mystery woman was absolutely lovely. The ending was excellent. I thought the summarizing method the author used to tie up loose ends was very clever!

Romeo and/or Juliet: A Chooseable-Path Adventure by Ryan North
This book is an awesome twist on the classic tale of Romeo & Juliet. I absolutely loved the sarcasm-heavy tone that was present. I found myself laughing so much! I enjoyed the fact that many times, the narrator was simply poking fun at the original storyline or the things the characters did. 

Warm Bodies by Isaac Marion
A bit of an outlier here, but this romance was really cute!

  3. I haven't read any of them but I'm VERY curious about the Romeo and Juliet one. I hated that one in high school because it was cheese to the max but choosing my own adventure sounds like a LOT of fun.

    The sarcasm sounds like a bonus and something I would enjoy as well.

    1. Oh yes, I hated it in high school too! This book adds an amazing level of humor and makes it much more readable! :)

  4. I enjoyed Jane Steele very much. I also read The Whole Art of Detection, and while it isn't exactly a romance, the nuance she added to the relationship between Holmes and Watson was very touching.

  5. Romeo and/or Juliet sounds fun, and a chooseable adventure format? That sounds unique! The Guernsey Literary has caught my eye at the bookstore a few times too.

    1. It was so much fun! I have another book by the same author, but I haven't had the chance to pick it up. I spend SO much time reading chooseable adventures because I want to make sure I read all the possible storylines!

    1. Yes! Of course the book covers more ground than the movie. Both are super cute!

  8. Warm Bodies!!! I absolutely ADORED the movie (more than I did the book). Definitely not your typical cutesy romance, but it pulled at my heartstrings. <3

  11. I haven't read any of these, but several are either on my wish list or my TBR pile. Maybe now that a movie version of The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society is coming out, I'll dust my copy off and finally read it!
