Retro Romance Challenge

A Million More Pages discussion on goodreads


DURATION: FEBRUARY 1, 2017 TO FEBRUARY 28, 2017



Romance is....classic. And if there's one thing that is common in retro art, it's romance. Couples on a date sharing a soda pop, dancing at the disco, listening to records, or just having that nostalgic, fun feel. 

For this challenge, pick and choose (or read all) romance categories. Most of these are catered toward actual romance fiction, but there are options for non-romance books as well, so as long as the theme fits, you're in.

Note: Someone brought up romance with same-sex couples - that is fine for any of these where I originally wrote man/woman instead of man/man or woman/woman. The word girl/boy or man/woman can be swapped out to fit if you'd like.

Have fun reading!
