It’s Kiss and Make Up Day, the cutest and swooniest of all silly holidays! You can catch us reading romance – and getting annoyed when our favorite enemies to lovers won’t just kiss already! – any day of the week, but today we’re pulling out all the stops. Join us for a tour of our favorite romance novels – with a heavy dose of kissing and making up, of course!

 

Geekerella by Ashley Poston

We love a contemporary fairy tale here at Quirk Books HQ, so of course we’re going to swoon over Ashley Poston’s contemporary retelling of Cinderella. Geekerella is full of some of our favorite tropes – like mistaken identity and falling in love over text – with some delightful surprises sprinkled throughout. Come for the comic con setting and the food truck called (of course) The Magic Pumpkin, stay for all the incredible characters that populate this world.

The Ex Talk by Rachel Lynn Solomon

If you’re a big fan of NPR and enemies to lovers romance, The Ex Talk is the book for you!

Take a Hint, Dani Brown by Talia Hibbert

If your idea of a swoony romance includes a gorgeous college campus, look no further than Talia Hibbert’s Take a Hint, Dani Brown. Dani Brown is our absolute favorite of the Brown sisters. She’s a PhD student and her love interest Zafir is an ex-rugby player turned security guard at the university. And sure, sure. He isn’t her love interest at the start of the book. He’s just Dani’s very good friend who just so happens to “rescue” her from a fire drill gone wrong. And when a video of Zaf carrying Dani goes viral, they have no choice but to fake date until things calm down. Right? This book is swoony to its core and the perfect book for daydreamers everywhere.

A Rogue of One’s Own by Evie Dunmore

If historical romance about the suffragette movement is the key to your heart, check out A Rogue of One’s Own by Evie Dunmore, a dynamic and thrilling installment in Evie Dunmore’s A League of Extraordinary Women series. Lucie is livid. She’s finally saved up enough money to buy a share of one of London’s major publishing houses – a must for any suffragist looking to spread the word about her cause. But she’s been thwarted by Lord Ballantine, who just so happens to own enough shares to outvote any political move she wants to make. But the good news is he’s willing to transfer ownership. For a price…
