message 1: by Brooke (new)

Brooke This one should definitely be added to the list! Something to Talk About


message 2: by Michelle (new)

Michelle Any queer romances? Casey McQuiston has a new queer romance coming out and since she won the Good Years award for best romance of 2019, seems like a good sign that we all want to see more great queer romance novels!!


message 3: by Sai Ram (new)

Sai Ram (ZanyAnomaly) agree with Michelle above!
where are the queer romances, is this lack of representation due to the publishing industry, or Goodreads or both?


message 4: by Soulfire (new)

Soulfire So you "focused on" goodreads lists? What else was taken into consideration? This list feels lacking.


message 5: by Steve (new)

Steve Any new M M romance I should be looking out for?


message 6: by Danielle (new)

Danielle Jobes Finding Elenore by P.W. Hazeldine should be on this list. This really is one of best love stories I have read in a very long time.


message 7: by Telu (new)

Telu The bride bet by Tessa Dare
