You know how sometimes you read a romance plot and you think, "hmm, this sounds familiar" only to realize it's a story that could be on Bravo or HGTV? Yeah, me too. And I fall for it every time.

Reality TV, whether it's a new person/couple each episode or an entire season with the same people, plays off of dramatic scenarios, big personalities, and high stakes - perfect for a romance novel. Below are a few that I've read. Please tell me your faves in the comments so I can stock up!

Who needs wine pairings when you can have book pairings?!

Geeky people have a lot of clothing options these days, but most of them are online, and it can be hard to judge quality and comfort through a computer screen. Fear not, fellow geeky romance reader - we have the site for you.

Since we like kissing books, we're also pairing a book with each item!

If you haven't yet heard of Svaha, here are a few of the reasons we love them:

  • One of their mottos is “everyone deserves pockets.” YES.
  • The company was founded (and is currently run) by two women, and they make clothes that are “aimed at shattering gender stereotypes!”
  • The clothes are made of 100% organic cotton so they’re soft and comfy as well as fun and functional.
  • Svaha’s dresses come in sizes 0 to 5x and lots of them have mini versions for any kiddos in your life who might need to match their mom/auntie/librarian.
  • Lots of the reviews have customer-submitted photos, so you can see what the clothes look like on a variety of bodies!

 In case you need further endorsement, this post was inspired by Margrethe's wardrobe at RWA earlier this month, which included more than one of Svaha's wonderful dresses.
