I asked twitter peeps for their #1romancerec for books read in 2017 and got a great list of books. Breaking my own hashtag rules, I was fine (even excited) if people wanted to recommend more than one. Really, I just wanted to talk about great romance novels. So, here is that list in one place. Also, these aren’t all books. Some people recommended series and some just authors. I have put the books with multiple mentions at the top. Otherwise, there is no order.
