Book Lists

Romance TBR highlights & faves — kindle unlimited edition!

February 7, 2020

With Valentine’s Day coming up, I decided I wanted to do a few romance-themed posts and lists this month, and one that I thought would be fun is a Kindle Unlimited TBR highlights post! My “KU” shelf on Goodreads is a mile long, so I just thought that this would be a fun way to put some titles on your radar that you can read for free with a KU subscription if you have one. The best thing about these books is that, even if you don’t have Kindle Unlimited, most of them are just a few dollars and they support indie authors! 💖

This is gonna be a long list, so let’s get to it!

By the way, quick shoutout to Sionna for a ton of these recommendations! She reads SO MUCH and posts so many awesome recommendations, TBRs, book lists, mini reviews, the works. You should follow her regardless, but especially if you like romance! 💖🥰

    This is a great list! Also, thank you for including Trick on this list- it really reminds me that I have that book on my TBR.

      Thank you! Ooooh, that one looked SO GOOD. I would love to hear your thoughts if you read it soon!

  • Reply Janina @ love letters February 7, 2020 at 7:57 pm

    Love the list! This just made me remember hoW BAD I want to read Under Locke! It also reminded me of the fact that I’m too scared to do it right now because I adore From Lukov with Love so, very, much and I’m afraid this book is not going to live up to my expectations. Always the same with me lol. I’m definitely no Gryffindor.

    • Reply Destiny @ Howling Libraries February 9, 2020 at 2:01 am

      Thank you! I seriously need to read more of Mariana Zapata’s books. I’ve only read Dear Aaron by her so far and I loved it SO DAMN MUCH that I’m also nervous to read more by her. 😂😂😂

      • Reply Janina @ love letters February 9, 2020 at 5:37 am

        Do it! She’s definitely one of my favorite romance authors. 💕 Obviously Lukov with Love is my favorite (ice-skating, perfectionist main character, enemies to friends to lovers) but I also really like Wait for It (the couple is not The Best here but the family dynamic is A++) and Luna and the Lie (focus on sisterhood, grumpy boss/employee romance). PS: it’s so silly that i’m so sO nervous because i have read so many books of hers already haha

        • Reply Destiny @ Howling Libraries February 9, 2020 at 12:59 pm

          Omg, thank you for the recs! I might have to pick one up this coming week for V-Day hahaha

    • Reply Destiny @ Howling Libraries February 9, 2020 at 1:00 pm

      Shit, that reply sent before I was done lol. This comment actually reminded me that I meant to mention you in the post because so many of these came from your reviews and TBR Lows & Highs posts, so lemme go do that real quick! 😀

      • Reply Sionna (Books in Her Eyes) February 10, 2020 at 6:54 pm

        Hahahahaha so that’s why I recognized so many of them 😉
        BTW ended up reading Teacher’s Pet Wolf by Kati Wilde yesterday and LOVED IT! I forgot she’s the one who wrote The Mid-Winter Mailorder Bride and OMG there is more to the series! I’ll have to read them sooooooon.

        Love that we enable each other 😉

          Yessss I’m so glad you enjoyed it! I can’t wait haha. I think I’m going to start their seasonal series (Beauty in Spring, etc.) this week. 🙂
