Best of the Year 2019 - Rom Coms Winner

Rom Com Winner: The A.I. Who Loved Me

"Long live the rom com! The resurgence of this beloved romantic subgenre dominated the landscape in 2019, and we don’t think these feel-good, illustrated-cover love stories are going anywhere anytime soon. Our top picks of the year represent some of our favorite tropes—enemies to lovers, wallflowers, and even a sci-fi twist. One thing they all had in common? Stellar performances. Andi Arndt pulled double duty as narrator and co-author, with Tara Sivec, on Heidi’s Guide to Four Letter Words. 2019 was a year of innovation for Lauren Blakely, who kicked off a slew of impressive multi-cast productions with Birthday Suit. Janina Edwards dazzled in The Wedding Party, her third collaboration with Jasmine Guillory. Cynthia Farrell and Deacon Lee nailed the dual POV we love so much in Christina Lauren’s The Unhoneymooners. And our winner, Alyssa Cole’s first Audible Original—The AI. Who Loved Me—was led by Regina Hall, Mindy Kaling, and a full cast who transported us to a robot love reality that has us pondering the future of happily ever afters." —Katie, Audible Editor
