Flashbacks of 2019 and Looking Ahead to 2020 – A Chance for Renewal…and Reincarnation?

Hi, readers! I hope you’re having a wonderful New Year celebration! 😀 Such a crazy busy year, right?

Anyway, let’s get down to discussing why we’re here. If you’re a loyal follower, then you know I do a New Year’s Eve post every year.

When our clocks and calendars reset, and we switch to another digit or two once a year, it becomes a time of renewal. A chance to look back on the ups and downs – our experiences throughout the year – and to digest the opportunity of starting over. Finally, it’s a clean slate, though our memories will always be with us, and thereby color the past and present in numerous ways.

For some reason, this ‘reset’, so to speak, always makes me think about the idea of reincarnation.

Due to some parts of my personality, I’ve actually wondered in the past if I would’ve fared better as a Victorian woman (LOL). Whether or not this concept jives with your belief system, in a way, we reinvent ourselves each year – reincarnate – shucking the cocoons we’ve been in just to face our metamorphoses with new wings and horizons. The reset is often cathartic.

To honor this notion, I’ve decide to take a moment and list some reincarnation romances I found on Amazon. Afterwards, I’ll give you an overview of all the I Love Romance Blog posts from 2019, divided by respective category. Just in case you missed any of them! 😉

Without further ado, let’s check out some romance books with a reincarnation theme…

I have so much gratitude for author Kevin Ethan, due to the excellent book review work he did for a while there on this romance blog. He was always so pleasant to me. Let’s all wish him a swift and successful recovery during this rough time he’s going through…

Well, I hope we’ve given readers some new novels to find, as well as fascinating romantic posts to glance over.

Many thanks to all the participating authors and guest content writers! ♥♥♥ You’ve helped to expand ILRB into what it is today. 😀

On a final note, I’d like to extend an invitation to both writers and readers to contribute to our guest book reviews (see our blog policy for more information). My current book reviews are closed, as I need to time to work my way down the list, but I will get to them. So…if you’d like to do a shout out with a brief commentary on a book you loved, please email me and I’ll get your guest book review scheduled. Use the subject heading ‘Interest in Writing A Guest Book Review on ILRB’. There’s no need to be shy at all! 😀 I can just put your first name on the post, if you prefer. These guest book reviews will be published on the blog in a first come, first served fashion. Additionally, as a thank you, I’ll add the book title to ‘Our Fave Reads’ page on ILRB for more exposure to romance readers. 🙂

Doesn’t sound like a bad deal, right? And, of course, we’re open to new ‘What Does Romance Mean to Me’ posts. You do not need to have written or published a book to participate!

In the meantime, I’m always willing to help out with book features, new release features, author and character interviews, and other types of posts to promote your work.

I hope you have a wonderful, successful new year, and it leaves you healthy and content! 😉

Happy reading, as always, and Happy New Year, everyone! 🎉

2018 Reflections and New Beginnings

 

Hi, readers! Wow, what a year! 🙂

If you’re a loyal follower, then you know I do a New Year’s Eve post every year. With the coming year brings a time of renewal – an opportunity for second chances, and even new beginnings. After a particularly difficult period in our lives, we often think about what it might be like if we ever had the chance to start over.

So today, I’m listing a bunch of books that encompass the ‘new beginnings’ theme.

How apropos for the new year, right? Let’s get started…

Well, I hope we’ve given readers some new novels to find, as well as fascinating romantic posts to glance over.

In other news, we may start offering book reviews in the future here on the I Love Romance Blog. Don’t get too excited yet and email me, though! A reviewer has reached out to me and when the details are finalized, I’ll put a page up with our review policy, dedicated solely to that service. So keep checking back! 😉

In the meantime, I’m always willing to help out with book features, new release features, author and character interviews, and other types of posts to promote your work.

I hope you have a wonderful, prosperous new year, and it leaves you healthy and content! 😀

And, as always, happy reading! ♥♥♥

A Year of Romance and Second Chances…Reflection Post: 2017 – 2018

Hi, readers! As you know, the I Love Romance Blog is a place to celebrate all things “love”, including tips on romantic relationships, as well as reading love poems, exploring romance novels in the form of pre-order and new release features, blog tours, cover reveals, guest posts about romance writing, giveaways, and perhaps finding a new, favorite romance author. This year, we also started two cool new features. One was our ‘What Does Romance Mean to Me?’ guest post feature. We had a whopping 20 posts in that series! Plus, you can’t forget our ‘Heroes & Heroines’ feature, explaining some of the behind-the-scenes details about our favorite characters from romance novels. It has been an awesome year! Hopefully, the New Year will bring just as many new and exciting opportunities!

With 2018 approaching quickly, it becomes clear that we should reflect not only on the past, but also what the future may bring. This is a time of renewal and rebirth; it’s also an age of new beginnings. With the giving spirit of the season in mind, perhaps it might lead to the greatest challenge of all – forgiveness. Perhaps second chances are truly possible, hmm?

So, to honor how much we love romance as well, I thought we’d go a step further. Why not give readers a list of great second chance romance novels? Let’s get started, shall we?

[Disclaimer: These are simply suggestions compiled from titles I found on Amazon. They are merely meant to give you options for second chance themed romance books to read. I have neither read nor reviewed them.]

This list looks like a great set of novels to get us started for 2018. I love a good romance! 😉

Also, here is a second chance story of mine!

To fully honor 2017, I’d like to thank all the talented authors who stopped by to visit ILRB. I would also like to offer tons of gratitude to the dating companies and individuals who offered up relationship and dating advice to our readers! Such a variety of posts this year! Additionally, we had 85 authors, either guesting or with books spotlighted, on our blog alone this year. Many thanks to our readers as well, for giving the I Love Romance Blog a chance!

Here are some highlights from 2017:

A Year of Romance: 2016

Hi, readers! As you know, the I Love Romance Blog is a place to celebrate all things “love”, including tips on romantic relationships, as well as reading love poems, exploring romance novels and perhaps finding a new, favorite romance author. With 2017 approaching quickly, it becomes clear that the New Year offers hope, the promise of good things to come, just like a fine romance.

So, to honor how much we love romance, as well as the idea of renewal, or even new beginnings, I thought we’d go a step further. Why not give readers a list of great romance novels that encompass the New Year’s theme? Let’s get started, shall we?

[Disclaimer: These are simply suggestions compiled from books I found on Amazon. They are merely meant to give you New Year’s options for romance books to read. I have neither read nor reviewed them.]

How about that? Romance authors really can cover any topic. This list looks like a great set of novels to get us started for 2017.

And to fully honor our wonderful 2016, I’d like to thank all the talented authors who stopped by to visit ILRB. We had 54 authors, either guesting or had books spotlighted, on our blog alone this year.Many thanks to our readers as well, for giving the blog a chance!

Here are some highlights from 2016:
