Happy Valentine’s Day to all! Today is the day for cuddling, romantic dinners, chocolates, candles, kisses, etc. For some, though, it’s a day of feeling sorry for yourself and drowning sorrows in steamy romance books. I may have some chocolates and a nice meal, but I am neither of those stereotypes.
The number one reason I don’t read romance books is … sex. Why is that so necessary? Today’s society has come to believe that love is only the action, but that is far from true. I need a deep, thought-provoking, sweet tale of two people falling for each other. I know there are some, but they are becoming a minority.
If romance books were all more like Pride and Prejudice (which some of you know to be one of my favorite books), I might try a few more, but even Pride and Prejudice romance isn’t something I seek out.
So, I may not be digging into a steamy romance anytime soon, but that doesn’t mean I’m not open to suggestions. I hope you have a wonderful Valentine’s Day, and if you’re single, enjoy it while it lasts. 😉
