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. 😉
What’s your favorite genre to read?
