18 Of The Best College Romance Books

Heading off to college can be a really exciting time full of firsts–first time on your own, first time in a new setting, first roommates, and for many, first loves and first time having sex. College romance books can be really tricky to find because they often fall in that nebulous age between adult and YA, and while New Adult was popular for a brief period, that age categories never really took off the way it should have. So this list is a nice mix of YA and adult books, all set in college, with some great romances that run the range from sweet to very sexy! Note: There is a notable lack of queer love stories set in college. Hopefully publishing will address this lack in the future.Continue Reading

Whether you’re familiar with historical romance or new to the genre, we’ve rounded up some of the best historical romance novels both past and present! Note: Traditionally this genre has been very white and very heterosexual, so while we made an effort to include as many books featuring queer romance and by authors of color, this is one area that romance publishing needs to improve on!Continue Reading
