When it comes to guilty pleasures, there is no television show that gets it right quite like The Bachelor.  The positives?  The Bachelor franchise has three seasons each year, The Bachelor, The Bachelorette, and Bachelor in Paradise to keep us occupied by the drama all year round!  The negatives? It’s only on Monday nights! So in the meantime here are some romance books to tide you over until the next episode airs.

Modern Romances To Read If You Love The Bachelorette

1. All the Right Reasons by Bethany Mangle

What could be better for fans of The Bachelorette than a book that LITERALLY takes place on the set of a reality dating show?! The Bachelor meets Gilmore Girls in this laugh-out-loud young adult romance about a girl who joins her mother on a reality dating show for single parents—only to fall for a contestant’s son.


2. Starry Eyes by Jenn Bennett


OUTDOOR EXCURSIONS!  If you love watching The Bachelorette bring a date (or two) for a fun trip outdoors, then Starry Eyes is the book for you!  It is kind of inevitable that an adventure like this will end with lots of snuggles amongst the trees.


 3. From Twinkle, With Love by Sandhya Menon

From Twinkle With Love by Sandhya Menon

LETTERS!  No episode of The Bachelor or The Bachelorette is complete without one of the contestants getting a little letter asking them on a date.  These simple date cards are a staple!  If love letters are your thing, then you will love reading the letters that Twinkle receives in this book.


4. Five Feet Apart by Rachael Lippincott


FIGHTING AGAINST ALL ODDS!  Sometimes you notice that one contestant who you feel might be destined to end up with the Bachelor or Bachelorette, but for some reason the universe seems determined to keep them apart.  But somehow you can’t help rooting for this couple and hoping that things will work out in the end.  I promise you, you will feel the same way when reading Five Feet Apart!


5. Stay Sweet by Siobhan Vivian


ENEMIES TO LOVERS!  One of our favorite tropes comes to life on both The Bachelor and in Stay Sweet.  I can’t tell you how much I love when the person you didn’t think would win the competition makes it all the way until the end.  Just watching the two of them connect and work through their misunderstandings makes my heart melt!  If you can relate, you need to try out Stay Sweet.


 6. To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before series by Jenny Han


LOVE TRIANGLE!  The only thing I can think about when watching those two-on-one dates on The Bachelor is . . . Can you say love triangle?!  If you haven’t read the To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before series, but have seen the movies, you can tell that in this series a love triangle will appear.  BUT NO SPOILERS! You’ll just have to read the series while you wait for The Bachelor to return to find out more.


 7. Love & Luck by Jenna Evans Welch


EUROPEAN ADVENTURES!  Don’t you love how The Bachelorette cast can just pick up and travel to some far-off destination each week?  Like I would love to travel to a romantic setting in Norway and hit the slopes!  But until I get my big break on The Bachelor, I’ll have to fantasize about these European adventures through books like Love & Luck.  Travel throughout Ireland in this book, and for a bonus, try out Love & Gelato for an Italian twist!


One of the best ways people have learned to express themselves is through music.    I for one LOVE when an old song I used to listen to when I was younger comes on the radio, and miraculously I still know ALL THE WORDS!  These throwback songs bring me back to the first time I heard it, even if I wasn’t born when it came out, and leads to reminiscing countless memories.  What’s your favorite throwback song? Someone’s favorite song, favorite genre of music, and favorite artist tell you a lot about the person. In fact, I bet if you told us your favorite throwback song, we could tell you what book you should be reading. Let’s give it a try!

Whether you are an only child or have plenty of siblings of your own, after reading To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before, it’s hard not to imagine life as one of the Song sisters.  And now that Jenny Han’s literary beauty is becoming a movie (see everything we know about the movie here!), you’ll be able to see Lara Jean, Margot, and Kitty’s relationships act themselves out on the big screen. 

Have you ever wondered if you were to put yourself in one of the Song girls’ shoes, which sibling you would be?  You can picture yourself studying in Margot’s dorm room in Scotland, lounging around on Lara Jean’s bed, or watching a movie on the Covey’s couch.  Well, look no further!  Take this quiz to find out if you are more of a Lara Jean, a Kitty, or a Margot!

I don’t know about you, but after this brutal, snowy winter, I am loving the feel of the warm sun on my shoulders!  Summer is around the corner, and with school out, I’m sure you have a list of activities you want to complete before the summer’s over.  You’re free to go to the beach with your friends, lounge by the pool with a book, or hang out at night under the stars.  Look at all the possibilities!  Pick your favorite thing about summer, and we’ll tell you which book you should read ASAP!


Sometimes you read a book that is so realistic and the characters are so fleshed out that you can’t help but imagine them as real people.  And sometimes…you can’t help but fall in love with the main character’s love interest.

What can you do? It happens! Now that summer is here and love is in the air, let’s see which swoony book bae you should take as your summer wedding date!  Pick your ideal first date, and we’ll tell you your perfect plus one!

Which Swoony Book Bae Should Be Your Summer Wedding Date?

Imagine this: You’ve cleaned your room, done all of your homework, completed all of your responsibilities. Now what? When you have free time, what is your go-to? Besides reading, of course! We know all of you bookworms love to curl up with a new book, but here is a way to combine your favorite hobby with your love of literature. Go ahead! Pick a hobby and we’ll give you your next great read!


book mugs, books and tea, book gifts

Book Mugs Make Great Non-Book Gifts!

Peanut butter and jelly.  Grilled cheese and tomato soup.  Snowy days and hot chocolate.  Some things that just go well together, like reading a great book and pairing it with a steaming mug of coffee/tea/hot cocoa/any other warm beverage you desire!  There is no better feeling than curling up on some fluffy pillows in a cozy blanket fort with your latest read in one hand and your mug in the other.  And yet, there is one way to improve this fantasy.  Instead of grabbing just any old mug out of your cabinet, grab yourself a book mug to complete the picture.  Here is a collection of some of our favorites to keep you warm during your reading hour (or hours).

Books Are Magic

Any true book lover will be able to relate to this mug’s message.  Whether the book actually includes magical/fantasy elements (Cassandra Clare fans, we know you’re out there) or if it simply holds the power to transport you to another world, we know that books certainly are true sources of magic.  And with a gorgeous flower crown that surrounds the text, why would you not want to snuggle up with this mug?

Just One More Chapter

How many of you have told yourselves (or your parents) that yes, you WILL turn off the lights and finally go to sleep after you finish your chapter.  But then when you actually turn to that last page of the chapter, the next chapter calls to you, whispering, “Just one.  More.  Chapter.”  If you are anything like me, this means that you cave each and every time.  You know it, I know it, this mug knows it.

Miles and Piles of Books!

This beautiful mug really speaks for itself.  And just think of how long a pot of tea and a pile of books could keep you occupied!  Although when you think about it, for literature lovers like us, it might not actually be that long…

My Book Boyfriend is the Best

We all know there are those characters that you read about, and while you know they are fictional, you can’t help falling in love with them (**cough-cough** Peter Kavinsky).  And since you know you only have a limited amount of time (and pages) to spend with them, you definitely don’t want to be interrupted.  This mug informs anyone approaching that, no, you don’t want to be disturbed, and yes, whatever they have to say can wait until later.  After all, you are on a date.

Books on the Go-Go

To only include ceramic mugs in this list would be to (wrongfully) assume that us book lovers only read at home.  But of course that couldn’t be further from the truth!  The best thing about books is the mobile worlds they provide.  So if you can bring your book on the road with you, why shouldn’t you bring your java with you too?  With this mug, you can read and sip on-the-go!  Plus it features a bookworm giraffe, and what could be cuter than that?
