2018 swoof reads

Genres, time periods, settings… we love them all! SO, what kind of fictional experience are y’all in the mood for?! Not sure? Can’t decide? 2018 swoof reads are here for you! Last year, swoof reads was a week-long celebration so check that out then read on for this year’s condensed version of the swoof files!

While reading a stack of books within the contemporary romance genre two summers ago, I was surprised by the variety of emotions the stories evoked. Amish sweethearts, heart-pounding suspense, romantic comedies, and sappy Hallmark-esque plots are all lumped together within the same category.
