With the first of February comes the first of what we’re sure will be quite a few romance book lists. Goodreads went ahead and got us started with a list of the 100 most popular romance books as chosen by their members over the last three years. To make the list, Goodreads looked at the romance books on members’ Read and Want to Read shelves.
The influence of TikTok is seen throughout the list, and there are also a few self-published titles. Genre-wise, there’s everything from dark romance to contemporary romance to romantasy. And, while there is some diversity, it will hopefully become more diverse with the years to come.
In no particular order, here are a few of the most popular romance books according to Goodreads members:
Book Lovers by Emily Henry
Fourth Wing by Rebecca Yarros
Twisted Love by Ana Huang
One Last Stop by Casey McQuiston
The Crown of Gilded Bones by Jennifer L. Armentrout
