I love reading cheesy romances. Those sorts that are like a fairytale and always have a happy ending where the two people get together. They’re my thing! But I also find myself feeling quite embarrassed by the fact that I like them. But there’s no shame in the fact that I choose to read romance.
So here’s why I love reading it:
Romances are the perfect escapism. Most people turn to dystopia and fantasy to escape the world, but I turn to romance. It’s nice to read a story where everything is happy as a way to escape the world at the moment. I’d rather read a happy romance than read a dystopia or fantasy which is getting scarily close to the real world now.
Fairytales are the gateway to the book world. They’re what you first hear and read, and I can guarantee everyone knows at least three. I love fairytales because they always get their happy ending, so that’s what I love in a romance. I love how everything wraps up in the end and they will always end on a positive note.
3. No Cliff-Hangers
I love a good cliff-hanger at the end of a book as much as the next person, but I hardly ever commit myself to a full series. Most romances are stand-alone novels which means the ending is always a nice final ending with no cliff-hangers that are going to bug me.
4. Easy Reads
I love reading books on serious subjects that are beefy and take a while to get through. But after I’ve read only them for a while, I’m always ready for a quicker, easier read which is when I turn to romance. It makes a nice change from serious topics and it’s definitely not as emotionally draining.
5. To Cheer Up
Romances are always happy books, which is often just what I need, especially after being at work. They’re cheerful reads and like in my last point, aren’t as emotionally draining as other genres.
