With the romance book industry bringing in $1.44 billion dollars in 2021, it’s no wonder that romance readers are a large and wide-ranging group. After all, there’s plenty to choose from when it comes to romance reading: from enemies-to-lovers to love stories set in fantasy worlds and realistic romcom novels, there’s something for every reading taste. Though romance books are often pigeonholed as frivolous, the genre offers an increasing range of diversity in settings, characters, and relationships, with authors like Talia Hibbert and Emily Henry having become bestsellers and incredibly popular on social media for their swoonworthy works. Additionally, the popularity of romance books on Bookstagram and BookTok means that romance readers have a community with whom to share their favorite books.
