Favorite Book Lists: Roommate Stories

small favorite booksHi gang! Today I am back with another edition of our Favorite Book Lists! This installment is our Favorite Roommate Stories! As usual, this list was inspired by some recent roommate stories I have read, including the fabulous Off Base by Annabeth Albert, and the latest installment of Jay Northcote’s Housemates series (review coming later this week). Not to mention, some of my favorite books are roommate stories, including Love Lessons by Heidi Cullinan and Off Campus by Amy Jo Cousins.

I love this theme as a twist on the Friends/Enemies to Lovers genre. One of the things I like about friends to lovers is that the partners are people who really know each other well. They aren’t all about the flash that comes from trying to impress someone. They are people who already have a connection as friends, and something sparks to turn things romantic. With roommates, that is amped up even more. They see you with messy hair and sweatpants and desperately in need of coffee. You share bathrooms and kitchens and TVs. There is no hiding when you are in love with your roommate. They know the good and the bad and if they still want you, you have the magic.

Here is a list of our top rated books that feature roommates. If you want to see all of our reviews featuring roommate stories, you can check them out here. And if we have missed any that you love, please let us know in the comments!


  1. Blame It on the Mistletoe by Eli Easton
    If I Must by Amy Lane

    I *love* roommate stories, and will be looking up the ones on this list that I haven’t read.

    Leo loves Aries by Anyta Sunday is another great roommate story.

  3. What a fun list! I combed through the list and picked out half a dozen stories. The first couple I read were great. Thanks!
