heartA long time ago in a galaxy far, far away…. Karen and Nancy put together a book list for romance titles!

Wait, it was definitely still in this local galaxy. But it was a rather long time ago, so I thought I’d give the list an update! Check out these fun books involving romance:

Okay, so there are 20 books on this list and I know that’s a lot, but don’t feel like you have to read them all before Valentine’s Day  romance and crush-worthy books are great all year-round! Have you read any of these books and fallen in love with them? Leave a review below!
