What Makes A Great Rom Com?

Life in a rom com novel is never as simple as endless flower delivery and chocolate hearts. The relationship problems often have twists and turns, but they’re always followed by a happily-ever-after ending.

When a book is sold as a rom com, we need to at least smile while reading. But it’s even better if we get to laugh out loud at the humourous situations characters find themselves in or the author’s clever writing. We also appreciate realistic main characters who aren’t perfect.

Our recommendations below start with 2023 releases we’re excited to read. But, we also know books that have been out a little longer can be easier to snag without a wait at the library, so following the 2023 section, you’ll find some highly-rated 2022 novels.

Thrilled that there is a whole list of rom coms for me to read! Really happy I found this! I just finished one of the best romantic comedies I've read in awhile called "Pretend with Me" by Emily Mayer. It is the first book in the Beacon Hill series and it's all about small town southern charm, a will-they? won't-they? romance, and a really funny main character (Sutton) who I absolutely loved! She was relatable, her family was relatable, and her crush (Holden) had me seeing hearts! From an outside perspective, these two couldn't be more different but once they get to know each know the rest (wink wink). Perhaps once you're back and looking for something fun to read - check out this book! - happy reading!
