The rainy season is the perfect season to stay indoors and read a great book. And if you’re looking for good reads, here are some of Insider’s recommendations for the best romance books of 2021 so far.
1. Love in Color by Bolu Babalola
Love in Color is a collection of 13 short stories about love — 10 retellings (ranging from Ghana’s The Princess’s Wedding to Greece’s Psyche and Eros), as well as three New Tales, original short romantic works from Babalola (one of which is based on her own parents’ relationship).
2. Second First Impressions by Sally Thorne
Second on this list is Second First Impressions. Ruthie’s goal is to become the manager of Providence, and she’s willing to put her personal life on hold to make it happen. But Teddy Prescott threatens to change everything when he movies into the apartment next door to Ruthie.
3. People We Meet on Vacation by Emily Henry
After a decades worth of mistakes, Alex and Poppy know that this vacation is their last chance to make their relationship right. But a reunion means they’ll both have to confront feelings for each other they don’t want to have, putting their friendship on the line once again.
4. Accidentally Engaged by Farah Heron
Reena’s parents have found her yet another potential Good Muslim Husband. This one has the body of Captain America, a delicious British accent, and lives right across the hall. He’s the perfect, mouthwatering temptation — and completely ruined by the unwelcome side dish of parental interference.
Reena refuses to marry anyone who works for her father. She won’t be attracted to Nadim’s sweet charm or gorgeous lopsided smile. That is until the opportunity of a lifetime presents itself: a couples’ cooking competition with the prize of her dreams. Reena will do anything to win—even asking Nadim to pretend they’re engaged.
5. Honey Girl by Morgan Rogers
The book follows twenty-eight-year-old PhD holder Grace Porter who goes on a girls’ trip to Vegas and gets drunkenly married to a woman whose name she doesn’t know. Making this unplanned decision makes her confront her meticulously curated existence, her future, and her feelings for her beautiful wife, Yuki Yamamoto.
