Thursday Thirteen #6

Thirteen Things about Maria

Thirteen Reasons I read Romance

1. It rocks!

2. Happy endings make me happy

3. There is a severe lack of fanciable males where I live, and the heroes in these books make up for it

4. I don't lose track of the plot every five pages

5. The heroines are either admirable or too stupid too live. Either way I get a kick out of it

6. Romances are my dreams put down in words

7. Love makes the world go round (or is that money?)

8. Only the nicest people read romance novels :)

9. There are dozens of subgenres like paranormal and suspense and erotic and futuristic and historical, you can never get bored.

10. Great new authors are never in short supply in romance.

11. They can work as a great aphrodisiac if you read them aloud to your partner (not that I have or anything, lol)

12. Good always overcomes evil.

13. ? Damn, can't think of a thirteenth!

No matter how many genres I read, romance is my first love and what I always go back to.

Jaci Burton said...

It renews my spirit and makes me believe in the warmth of love everlasting.

Great list!

Great list, Maria!

I like number 5. *g*

Though, with number 4, that, IMHO, just means that you're reading the wrong authors for recs. Email me if you have specific genres you want to try, and I'll send you a list.

And how can 3 be possible? You live in Ireland!

Lol May, believe me, Ireland is not filled with Colin Farrells, he's one in a million

When I'm having a bad day I reach for a romance. And the worst day writing one is still a good day!

Elle Fredrix said...

I'm with you on number two! There's a lack of happy endings in this world.

I'll admit - romance novels are my guilty pleasure. They make for great jello for the mind after a hard week of reading textbooks, tech manuals, and writing dry content.

Angelle Trieste said...

I really enjoy romance although I discovered it really late in life. :) The first romance novel I read was Gentle Rogue, which I thought was fun despite the godawful clinch cover.

My TT is also up.
