Maybe Roxanne by giraffe? It was a K&T entry and may be more of a romantic dramedy but tbh it’s funnier and more charming than a lot of romcoms I’ve come across

This is not my area of expertise lol but that makes me kind of excited for the shelf because I’d love to read some good romcoms.

Would it be weird to say One of the Girls by amberose? :joy:

I feel like I have a handful of stories to recommend for the shelf, but they’re all on the tip of my tongue. Will return at some point with a list.

Wow, I thought I would know a lot of stories for this shelf, but turns out those were all featured already, and it wasn’t even a lot of stories to begin with :sweat_smile:

For now I’ll recommend:
Cool Fools by Tina

MY FAVORITE GENRE ON EPISODE!!!

Okay inside voice now - I read this genre the most. The comedy in romcoms is really important to me. It can’t just be about the romance.

Strictly Business (but author seems to be MIA though)
Broke AF (now renamed ‘Broke as Hell’)
