27 Best Romantic Comedy Books for 2022

Sharing is caring!

While classic literature is great, sometimes there’s nothing better than laughing along with a romantic comedy.

Life in a great rom com book is never as simple as endless flower delivery and chocolate hearts, but the relationship problems often have a humorous twist followed by generally happy endings.

We think a funny romance novel is a perfect break when you’ve been reading something heavier, like one of the historical books from our Decades or Book Voyage Reading Challenges!
