Hello Lovelies! If you know me, you know I love romances (pun intended). Today, I have some very exciting (romance-related) news to share with you. Eek!

Nicole (aka Who Picked This Book) and myself are starting a romance genre book club for BookTube! I have been studying the romance genre for over two years now (and I've been a voracious reader for much longer). This genre is always on my mind. I read, study, and write romances!

After realizing that the genre is stigmatized and not discussed as openly on BookTube as other categories, I reached out to Nicole (my BookTube best friend, whom I absolutely adore) and asked if she would be interested in starting a romance genre book club (not fiction romance, not books with some romance in the narrative, the actual romance genre book club). To my absolute delight, she said yes. Ever since, we have been planning this announcement.

Nicole, being the absolute sweetheart that she is, named the club after me. (I still blush at that.) Hopefully, romance is a part of your heart and being too and you will be joining us for this BookTube book club. You can follow us on Twitter, join our Goodreads group, and follow our WordPress blog. The first Tuesday of the month, Nicole and I will be ready to chat (7 PM Eastern Time).

To kick off our livestream series, Nicole and I will be discussing why we love the romance genre as well as the documentary Love Between the Covers. So please join us on February 6th at 7 PM over on my YouTube channel, Books Are My Hart. We would love to meet some fellow romance readers.

I hope to talk with you (about romances) really soon!
