I am probably not alone in blazing through the offerings on Netflix, and I am not ashamed to say that I blazed through five in quick succession. When I’m unsure about the world, and unable to focus on writing my steamy paranormal tomes, watching romantic comedies is my next go-to!
To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before
This is based on a young adult novel (which I read and loved). I also loved the film, and adored watching it play out on my screen! The concept is hilarious and cringe-worthy (love notes she never intended to send over the years to different guys all get sent out at once). Go read the book, too. It’s great.
Set It Up
This was utterly delightful, and I’ll very likely watch it again soon. It’s an office romance with some matchmaking going on, and overall a blast.
Sierra Burgess is a Loser
This is a modern, teen, gender-swapped retelling of Cyrano de Bergerac. I don’t recommend this one as easily as the others here, because I was a little disturbed by the deceit, especially when it came to the first kissing scene. However, this might not bother everyone else, and I thought the movie was still good. Just uncomfortable in places.
Nappily Ever After
I loved, loved this movie. It’s not quite a rom com in that it was super heavy at times, and it doesn’t have quite the neatly tied-up HEA that I usually expect in rom coms. However, thoroughly enjoyed this (even when I cried) and highly recommend it.
The Kissing Booth
Very cute, another teen love story. It hasn’t been that long since I watched it, but the details are pretty hazy other than the fact I enjoyed it, the kissing booth was a minor plot point, and it didn’t end quite like I wanted it to. But again, super cute.
<3 I hope these gave you some ideas of what to watch. Have you already seen them? None of these is particularly new, so you might have! Any favorites in the bunch? Or a recommendation for something else to watch?
