Maybe you haven't read in weeks, or maybe you haven't stopped reading since this all started. Either way I know you love to talk about books.
Tomorrow #Rombklove 2020 kicks off with a whole new crew of readers, reviewers and writers sharing their love for inclusive romance by writing about the different tropes, motifs and sub-genres of romance that most fascinate them.
Every day in May there will be a prompt tweet to kick off conversation and every week day link to an inclusive rec post full of fabulous books put together by the #Rombklove team.
This post will be updated each day, with links to all the rec posts, and an archive of the day's tweets.
How to participate?
Readers: Respond to the prompts! Share your favorite books, characters, scenes, or thoughts on tropes. Make sure to include the #RomBkLove hashtag with your tweet! If you have read and loved a book by LGBTQIA+, Disabled, and/or Authors of Color that fits the prompt please, please mention it. You might think everyone has heard of the book but I can guarantee you there are lots of people who still need to hear about it.
Authors: You are welcome to participate too, as fellow readers. The tag is not meant for self-promotion. Boost fellow authors, celebrate the community but do so in a way that respect reader spaces. Respect the conversation. Join in to rec the books you love that fit the theme/trope/prompt. Yes, you can say “I wrote a book with this trope” but please don’t spam the hashtag with generic promo.

Day 32: THANK YOU!
#Rombklove 2020 almost didn't get going this year. With everything that was going on, with my own head barely above water, I just didn't feel like I could ask bloggers and readers to do more. But after a few folks let me know how much they were looking forward to having booktalk on their TLs again I decided to take a different approach. So this year I am delegating and trusting an even bigger group of volunteers. The amazing readers are stepping up to create graphics, translate, review, help write prompts and even pitch in with the archiving! It is amazing.
