5 On My TBR| Forced Proximity

Tracking your TBR is pretty important when it’s quite large, haha. Besides Down the TBR Hole and my Netgalley Backlist we needed something to track our physical TBR. 5 On My TBR is a way of keeping track. This is a meme hosted by E from Local Bee Hunter’s Nook. Every week there’s a different prompt for five on my TBR.

This week’s topic is translated, but I’m not feeling that one today. I do really like next week’s prompt though, so I’m doing that one a week early. Forced proximity is a fun trope and one I need to read more of. So here are 5 books with forced proximity I want to read.

A Court of Silver Flames – Sarah J Maas

ACOTAR is a series I’ve really enjoyed (even if the ending of the third book did a few things I would’ve liked to have seen differently) and I still haven’t read A Court of Silver Flames. Nesta seems to be a character a lot of readers don’t like at all, but I’m really curious about her. I mean I think I would be angry too if it was me and a lot of things changed and I couldn’t control it. As I’m typing this, I’ve actually read a few chapters and I’ve enjoyed it so far.

Verity – Colleen Hoover

Verity is a book you see everywhere online in the bookish community and I’ve been wanting to read it. I know it’s a lot darker than most of the books Colleen Hoover has written, but I can’t help but be intrigued.

People We Meet on Vacation – Emily Henry

Emily Henry is an author that’s really in the spotlight at the moment after releasing Book Lovers and even before that honestly. I really enjoyed Beach Read and I’m hoping to read People We Meet on Vacation soon. Friends who have lost their way come together again for one more vacation. This isn’t going to go smoothly.

Terms and Conditions – Lauren Asher

I loved The Fine Print and I’ve heard a lot of readers say they loved Terms and Conditions even more. One of my favorite tropes is fake dating or marriage of convenience. They always end up falling in love and I love seeing how it all plays out.

The Confidence of Wildflowers – Micalea Smeltzer

The Confidence of Wildflowers is definitely a bookstagram made me do it purchase. The cover is stunning and I’ve heard amazing reviews! I don’t think I’ve ever read an age gap romance, but this one sounds like a good place to start.


Here are five books with forced proximity that are on my TBR. I’m sure there are plenty more out there that I also want to read, haha. What are some of your favorite forced proximity books? Or what’s your favorite trope? Let me know in the comments! I’d love to hear from you.
