Let Me Recommend – Epistolary relationships (Love Letters trope)


Isn’t it funny how this type of relationship is perceived as a dying art? Who writes letters anymore, right? Wrong.. we all do in some shape of form, emails, tweets, messages, perhaps they are not the old school kind of letters but they do count when developing a connection with someone else.

So, I wanted to recommend to you guys 5 of my favorite love through letters romances… Some are the traditional kind of mail.. others not so much but there’s one thing they have in common… they are not to be missed.

Dear Aaron by Mariana Zapata


A more traditional approach since this couple exchanges letters and emails… while our hero is on deployment… being a book by Mariana Zapata you know it’s going to be a slow burn but it’s so sweet and greatly written… this is one of my favorite books by her right along The Wall of Winnipeg.

Punk 57 by Penelope Douglas


Was there any doubt that this book was going to be here? It starts with our main protagonist being childhood pen pals and it goes from there to places you wouldn’t expect… if you are one of the very few who still hasn’t read this book … what is wrong with you? get to it…

Goodnight Tweetheart by Teresa Medeiros


This is an old school twitter messaging kind of relationship… It’s told merely by tweet exchanges but since our main girl has no clue how to use Twitter at first.. (I did say old school right?) It’s fun to read how they slowly fall in love not knowing what the other looks like or even if they are telling the whole truth about themselves.

The Friend Zone by Kristen Callihan


Plain fun, and steamy goodness between text buddies… I don’t need to explain more

Tell me Three Things by Julie Buxbaum


What do you do if your lifeline is someone you haven’t met? This sweet coming of age story asks this question… our main girl is being helped by her email friend who she doesn’t know anything about… but as time passes and she learns to navigate high school deal with loss… their connection gets deeper.

These are all great reads that will take you out of the traditional style romance… so I hope you’ll give them a chance… Let me know in the comments if you have any other love letter romance type of book and
