I have this crazy idea! What if someone wrote a “romance” novel where the first two male and female characters didn’t instantly fall in lust with one another? What if it wasn’t completely obvious who the main character of a book series was going to end up with? Wouldn’t it be amazing if you couldn’t predict exactly how a romantic relationship was going to develop?
Mind blowing thought, isn’t it?
So, I’ve been noticing more and more lately that everyone seems to love YA and Romance novels. The giveaways on Goodreads are full of them. My friends seem to only add them, or read them. As I’m looking for new blogs to read everyone is reviewing YA novels, or Romance novels. Why are all vampire and werewolf and shifter novels in the Romance section? Can we not have supernatural stories that don’t involve two people going at it like dogs in heat?
Now, I have no problem with YA novels. I was a teenager once and at the time I liked YA novels. However, I am now an adult in my 30’s and I want to read books that are geared towards adults, but without all the sex! Is that so bad? Really, is it so wrong to want to read something that has a real plot and character growth and some fun or surprising plot twists?
Do you review and talk about adult books in your blog? If so, tell me in the comments because i will definitely check it out. Help me out fellow bloggers, help me find something I actually want to read about!
