Founded by an active member of the romance book community, The Last Chapter offers a diverse selection of books and merchandise. We’ve cultivated an inclusive, welcoming environment for those celebrating the magic of storytelling.

Our online store hosts a variety of monthly trope boxes, book club boxes, and bookish merch. A talented team curates each project and makes the magic on the pages come to life.

The Last Chapter's latest adventure has been opening up Chicago’s very own romance-only bookstore in the Roscoe village area. Our mission is to continue to support the many members of romancelandia, and connect you with the books you love, the merch you can’t live without, and the authors that are a positive force in the community. Welcome to our little corner of the book world.

In December of 2021, The Last Chapter Bookshop opened its doors to readers looking for

adventure, romance, and swoon-worthy characters.
