Booking Through Thursday: Romance
This week's topic for Booking Through Thursday is romance.
And so, in honor of Valentine's Day . . .
1. Love stories? Yes or No? I do enjoy a love story now and then. The book I am reading now has a little romance in it--although it is more like the fatal attraction kind.
2. If yes, "romances" as a genre? Or just, well, stories that have love stories? (Nobody's going to call "Pride & Prejudice" a "romance," right?) If a novel is classified as a strict romance, I am less likely to pick it up and read it, but occasionally one finds its way into my personal library and on my reading list that I enjoy. Generally, however, I prefer that the romance to be mixed in with another genre--more of a side story than the main focus.
