RB: Favorite Genre

I’ve been hooked on romance novels ever since I borrowed my first one from Heather Z. in seventh grade to giggle (and blush) over the romantic (read: sex) scenes.


Once I started reading more than the “good” parts, I fell in love with the characters. Their experiences became my dreams. I cried when they cried. My cheeks burned with their embarrassment.

I think this was when I started to create my own stories in my head. Late at night. When I yearned to fall in love just like they did.


I’ve read different genres over the years. Horror. Mystery. Fantasy. But my mind would wander in those stories. I want romance. I want the character interactions. The attraction, the lust, the moment when it turns to never-apart love.

If I could transport myself to anywhere, it would be inside a romance novel. Would maybe even say a paranormal. I’m not picky, they don’t all have to sparkle. πŸ˜‰

    • Yes, I like it when a book has more than just the happily ever after plot. I need something else to worry about than if the hero and heroine will get together.

  1. I don’t read many romances per se, but I do like romantic overtones in the novels I read . . . and I am all about relationships, in fiction and in real life.

  2. I used to read almost nothing but romance in high school, but the genre didn’t offer enough interesting variety to keep me hooked. I mostly stuck with historical and the occasional paranormal, but contemporary romance was very dull to me (at the time). It was a good run while it lasted, but my favorite genre will always be fantasy.

  3. Most people enjoy a good romance. Me too πŸ™‚ I’m a bit picky about the romances I read – they have to be clean, the characters have to grow, and the plot must be more than boy meets girl and they live happily ever after.

  4. Every story I’ve ever written has a romance element. It draws me in and excites me like nothing else. I blame it all on Jane Austen (HA!).

  5. I am following you from the blog hop. I like a little romance but it is not my first love. I love historical fiction, real life stories and non-fiction; real characters, real situations and how people deal with them. Since I am Christian – I look for redemption, and how God works in our lives.

    • I’ve tried to get into historical fiction. History was not my favorite subject in school and I thought reading that type of novel would be fantastic. Sadly, I could never get into them.

  6. i’m with you on this. i love a good romance. i need some plot too, but if nobody’s falling in love then i’m usually disappointed. i’ve found in my own writing that romance must be involved or i can’t finish the story. i don’t mind sparkles either, but i like my vamps a bit meaner, like eric northman. πŸ™‚

    • Sigh, Eric Northman… I wished he and Sookie would get together in the books (and stay together). I did like his character better in the novels than in the TV show, though.

      Thanks for stopping by and the comment.
