    Such an incredible list. Love From A to Z was wonderful. It's the kind of contemporary every reader adores: mixing soft squishiness and family and lovable characters…with harsher issues and deep conversations. It makes and breaks your heart. It so does. It's centered a lot around finding peace vs. being validly angry. And the love and care and nuance that went into all the discussions was so palpable (another reason why #ownvoices books are so important). Cannot recommend it highly enough. I'm going to give this a try very soon. Have a super wonderful week!! I have a random question for you. Which popular sub-genre do you prefer better?: Chick lit or classic/fairytale retellings?

    Ok, I feel sort of bad about this, I read two of these The Bromance bookblub, and Well Met, I at least really liked Well Met… I gave it 4 stars. Read it multiple times, I stand by that, but the Bromance Bookblub just wasn't for me. I'm hoping to like the next couple better. Honestly same with Well met

    I read the First in that Tessa Dare series, and honestly I wasn't overly impressed, but Minerva is the heroine in the second one right? Did you read the first one? Shoud I try? I think it was called a night to surrender 4 stars is where a book becomes really good in my personal rating scale

    I always feel hesitant in picking up books about disabled characters, as I am severely disabled, and either I think the rep is not well done, or they choose to kill themserlves in the end; spoilers for me before you 😛 But then I've always liked characters named Regina, so maybe I'll try the Alyssa Cole one

    I haven't heard great things about Jasmine Guilory… Same question. Do you think I should try?

    For some recs: My fav nerdy couple of all time is from Jane Eyre… a broad application of the word here
    The Da Vinci Code also had a great nerdy couple in my opinion
    And Hazel from The fault in our Stars is the most relateble character to me and she is fairly nerdy to use her own words
    Outlaw Queen will forever be my ship
    And Kathryn and Chakotay were my ship before I even knew what shipping was ( also Picard and Beverly )

    *It sort of made me laugh when you said that Talia Hibbert heroine was fat, I was like oh yeah where, the cover model looks like a size 4 😛

    Since you like nerdy romance you might try One Good Earl Deserves a Lover by Sarah MacLean. The heroine is a scientist and takes this adorably scientific approach to everything. I seem to remember the hero being a bit nerdy as well. It’s super cute!

    Ummm… what is 'nerdy bedroom talk'??? 🤣 Enquiring minds and all that!

    I have to agree that a beta hero is really quite delicious at times, as is a nerd but I wish people didn't equate those personality traits with wimpy or wishy-washy (all the w's!) as that is so often what happens with all the overly possessive grunting a-hole loving gals out there. Some reviews of less a-holey romance heroes really do have me 🙄.

    The idea of two beta's, or two nerds together is even more delicious to me! As is two alpha characters (so long as they are not a-holes) like Lennix and Maxim in Kennedy Ryan's All The Kings Men duet. I really like stories where the two people have matching personalities as that sometimes is enough on its own to create some conflict within a story.

    A couple of ideas for you 1) a YA with strong faith driven narrative – I've seen some amazing feedback on All-American Muslim Girl by Nadine Jolie Courtney, and 2) nerdy cosplaying couple – The Cost To Play by Oliva Gaines was a fun read. TFS 🙂

    I clicked on this video so fast! I loved Well Met and Undercover Bromance. I’m so excited for book two! And I really want to read that Talia Hibbert book! You also sold me on The Right Swipe with the spreadsheets ☺️

    Ok how have I not read the Bromance Book Club Yet? I feel like I’ve been waiting for my hold in the library to come through for a million years! Also I looked up the London West End romance series, there are 5 of them out and my library has all the audios Yey! I will catch up with them… at some point! Also love for Ashley Poston AND dilemma with Jasmine Guillory-am scared to try more from her… One in a Million by Lindsey Kelk I think could be classed as a nerdy romance & it also deals well with social media!

    I like nerdy romances in general but if the book is an instant love romance, I do not like it even if the characters are nerdy.

    I seriously can't wait for Well Played! Haha I can definitely get behind a character who's into spreadsheets. That's great. I just read A Princess in Theory and had a great time with it, so I definitely can't wait to get to the rest of the series. Umm yes, The Princess Plan sounds fabulous. I have got to read The Bromance Book Club this month!
