We’re thrilled that so many of you entered our 4th birthday sweeps (thanks for all the birthday wishes, btw!), especially because it means we got to hear about your favorite romances. We got a lot of terrific suggestions (our TBR pile is now ceiling-high), and we’ve assembled the most popular choices into this roundup–of course, one of the most popular choices was “I can’t pick just one!” Plus a lot of you have a favorite author, but will read any one of her books–so we did a little bundling to get to this list. Now you’ve got a perfect crowdsourced recommendation list the next time someone says, “I’ve never read a romance. What should I start with?”
