Romance Books Your Myers Briggs Type (MBTI) is Telling You to Read

No romance novel is created equal. 

Each has its own awe-inducing story to tell. But the best romance novels always have one thing in common—they make readers fall in love. Best of all, they teach readers what love is.

And what goes better with romance than a bit of psychology?

In this article, we’ve handpicked the best book recommendations for each unique MBTI category. Come one, come all (yes, invite your introverted friends!) for a rollercoaster ride of emotions. Here is our list of romance books to read based on your MBTI!
