My TBR you ask? I threw it out. I‘m just going to read romance until I‘m ready to face the world and that might not be till 2020. Not the best book, but who the hell the cares. They end up together and that‘s all I can ask for in 2018 when everything is upside down. Next!!!

Dorianna This has been my general mood but with Terry Pratchett books. 14mo
readordierachel Hell yeah. Here's to reading what makes you happy! 14mo
Kristy_K I love reading romance when I can no longer deal! Looking forward to your recommendations. :) 14mo

Reggie I was actually thinking about this this past month. I read great fiction last year and this year, romance seems to be prevalent in my reads. I just need the happiness I can‘t see in the real world and the news right now. Totally feel you. 14mo
Notafraidofwords @Reggie thank you for that. That‘s exactly it. 14mo
MicheleinPhilly @Reggie @Notafraidofwords For me this year it has been police procedurals like the Harry Bosch series. I‘m still reading literary fiction but I take pretty long breaks in between. But I strangely find something comforting in a good ‘ol detective series. 14mo
Notafraidofwords @MicheleinPhilly hmm any that you recommend without sexual assault/ rape? 14mo
MicheleinPhilly There is actually a new-ish book prize for crime fiction that does not include violence against women. Check it out: http://staunchbookprize.com/# 14mo
Notafraidofwords @MicheleinPhilly woah. Thank you! 14mo

Xmas contemporaries are supposed to be trite but the self-centeredness of the heroine was pretty bad.She‘s decided that her soulmate was one of her exes even tho we can see it‘s her bestie.Worse,she keeps trying to find the exes after hooking up with said BFF.If the genders were reversed, I wouldn‘t accept a hero who‘d do this.There‘s plenty of Hallmark movie traits (a dog, white Xmas) but I can‘t believe the couple will last till spring.#romantsy

I usually skip over romance books with the best friends falling into love theme. However, this book is so fantastic that it makes me get over my reservations real fast. Mark with his sardonic wit is a perfect foil for Kelly's Polly Anna personality. Watching her realize her 💖 for her best friend is a truly fun endeavor. She had to kiss a couple frogs but she finally got her prince for Christmas.A fun romance that provides the magic of Christams💖

⭐⭐⭐ an ok Christmas read. Contemporary romance isnt really my thing but it was a nice enough story. I've forgotten the leading ladies name but she is told by a psychic that she has already met the love of her life and they will be together by Christmas. So she revisits her list of ex's to discover who this love is not knowing that he's right next to her all along.

This book had everything I love in a holiday story! Added bonus for the friends to lovers trope, holiday traditions, and the Magic 8 Balls. This book had me smiling and chuckling as these best friends dealt with the drama of the ex-list. An Ex for Christmas now has a permanent spot on my annual holiday reading list.

For those of you looking for a fun Christmas #romantsy I recommend this one. I really liked the sarcastic hero who had me chuckling my entire train ride yesterday. This was a fun and sweet read that I can see myself rereading during holiday seasons to come.

raelaschoenherr I read this one a little while back. A good cute read for Christmas 🎄 2y
Jemgirl2014 I am reading it and I 💜💜 it! The hero is definitely the ying to the heroine's yang. LOL 2y
