Romance novels are often underestimated as being a “chick thing,” but, let’s face it, plenty of men love a good romantic story too. Why wouldn’t they? Over the years, I’ve read some of the most fascinating stories that have taken me on quite an adventure, all without leaving the room. Sometimes it’s hard to find a great story. It’s easy when you find an author or a novelist who’s unique style of writing easily entraps you. Here are some of the things I love about reading these kinds of books.
This aspect has to be on the top of the list. Why have a romance novel without sufficient romance? What I love about the specific ones I’ve read was the fact that the romance aspects of these novels weren’t cheesey. There were plenty of elements that went with the romance that took you on quite an emotional ride. What young single person wouldn’t want to experience that?
The storyline is enough to take you on an adventure, making you feel like you’re living the story. Sometimes you forget that you’re sitting in the room reading because the story grabs you that deeply. That makes for any great story, and it’s the most fun with a romance novel. Even after you’ve read the story, sometimes it’s hard shaking it off because of everything that went on. And it even inspires you to want to write your own story. That’s something I plan on doing at some point in my life, and I can only hope to be as good as the novelists I’ve come to adore.
The characters also have an affect on you. That’s because they are so unique among the people you know in reality. These characters make you wish you actually knew them. It’s even more interesting to read their story when the individual novel is part of a series. That’s quadruple the fun! Sometimes these characters will make you laugh, and other times they’ll make you cry. They can even make you so angry, that you’ll want to thrown the book down. But each aspect of the stories I’ve were worth the time, and I’m glad I got to know these wonderful characters. They are simply unforgettable.
Some of the best novels that I’ve read had a lot of history involved. In fact most, if not all, the books I’ve read had many pieces of history incorporated into the story. In a way, it’s a great way to learn about history, when it’s blended into a fictional story. In this case, most novels are called Historical Romance. There have been cases where the history was slightly fictionalized.
One of my all time favorite authors of historical romance is Johanna Lindsey . If you haven’t read any of her books, don’t hesitate. Go for it! Believe me, you WILL NOT be disappointed in her work. If you’re sitting in the house on a lonely Friday or Saturday night, crack open one of her books and let it take you on an adventure.
