Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s topic is Ten Books To Read If You Are In The Mood For X. I enjoy quiet love stories, but I also love action-packed stories, and it’s a bonus if there’s romance in the mix too! Thus, here are my favorite books/series that have a nice blend of both! In no particular order…
Alternate WWI history with lots of adventure AND secret love? Yes please.
Dragons + one of my favorite ships ever. The book starts off a little slow but it picks up. (Important FYI: This does not include the sequel Shadow Scale.)
Wonderful fantasy with magic and best friends trying to decide if there is more between them.
You’ll probably want to read the not-as-adventurous but still wonderful For Darkness Shows the Stars first, but this book based on The Scarlet Pimpernel is full of missions and secrets and unwelcome love.
How many series are there out there with as many swoon-worthy couples and daring escapades as The Lunar Chronicles? Honestly, I’m not sure there are any others.
Another Scarlet Pimpernel retelling full of missions and secrets and unwelcome love…
The best book I have read where time travel served as the main plot, plus a love story.
Don’t let the kissy cover fool you, there are many conspiracies afoot in this book, with the romance taking a backseat.
Heavier on the action and lighter on the romance, but what romance there is SUPER sweet. And the ending of this trilogy will leave you with so many feels.
I enjoyed the first book as well, but the second book in The Naturals series ups the ante both on the action and romance sides. Now I need to read book three!
Are you a fan of any of these adventure + romance books? Which books would you include on this list?
