It is a month-long opportunity for readers to celebrate the romance they love to read and to help cultivate romance-centric conversations. Each day during a #Rombklove event, there is a different prompt to drive discussion.
How do I participate?
Readers share their favorite books, characters, scenes, or thoughts on tropes. Make sure to include the hashtag with your tweet!
Authors are welcome to participate too, as fellow readers. The tag is not meant for self-promotion.
How did #RomBkLove get started?
Twitter and the way it amplifies the terribleness of the unrelenting news cycle has been exhausting for many of us while still being one of most important points of connections we have with other readers. I wanted to provide a little space for romance readers to find each other again.
I was inspired by the Instagram #Yarnchallenge and other similar posting challenges and wondered if anyone had done romance related ones. Once I started thinking of romance related prompts, I couldn’t stop. My first post about what became #RomBkLove was back in April of 2017. I’ve tagged all related posts on blog with #Rombklove if you want to dig back.
Where can I find past #RomBkLove prompt lists and recommendations?

And finally as a Latinx (Puerto Rican), bi romance reader I want #Rombklove to be inclusive space for LGBTQIA +, Disabled & POC readers. If you have read and loved a book by Disabled, LGBTQIA+ 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.
