Many of them are sexist and/or full of cliches but I liked the one I read (can't remember name) because the protagonist was charming and compassionate, and the hero was a sensitive Swedish hunk. Cornell Waters July 13, 2021 at 2:26 am📘 Thank You! Art3mus1084 July 13, 2021 at 2:26 amI read Romance novels I would like to see Romance novels from the man's point of view and not always from the women's. For men to go through the same feelings and emotions when it comes to looking for love why not give them the spotlight from time to time. Vanessa NM July 13, 2021 at 2:26 am"50 Shades is romance? erotica? fanfiction?" It's shit, let's move on Victoria July 13, 2021 at 2:26 amWuthering Heights is NOT a romance Karin Shah July 13, 2021 at 2:26 amSky O’Malley isn’t really Romance. The heroine never settles on one guy really. Scott Rindal July 13, 2021 at 2:26 amEverything Lindsay does is worth watching, great video. Not sure if others mentioned but most gay romance novels are written and purchased by women in the West. Which explains why the sex scenes often seem unrealistic for men and the trope of the masculine partner and the feminine, passive partner which is basically a rewrite of a heterosexual novel (the "chick with a stick" character). Similarly young Japanese girls are the main consumers of gay themed manga. For them it is probably a safe way to fantasize about sex and perhaps for western women (especially English speaking) these are novels full of communicative men who value feelings and want to talk about them…over and over again. I am generalizing I know but not that much from the various articles and studies I have read (or skimmed through if I'm honest). MarionParoo Too July 13, 2021 at 2:26 amCan I please keep that shot of Anne Bronte walking off going "Ah fiddle faddle"XD Me, myself, and I Nobody from nowhere July 13, 2021 at 2:26 amSome of us also just want our bodices ripped 🤷♀️ Sophia Walsh Long July 13, 2021 at 2:26 amAT 4:41 I PAUSED THE VIDEO AND COULD GENUINELY NOT STOP LAUGHING FOR A SOLID MINUTE lizzfrmhon July 13, 2021 at 2:26 amIs it sad that I’ve read a bunch of the books in this video? 🤣 S F July 13, 2021 at 2:26 amlooool "spanky billionaire erotica" Jennifer Santos July 13, 2021 at 2:26 amI find it hilarious that the dudebro/chad speak of "alphas" and "betas" probably comes from cheesy romance novels 👌😂 T.K. McNeil July 13, 2021 at 2:26 amUm, pretty sure both Emily and Anne Bronte wrote Wuthering Heights. Laura Wernert July 13, 2021 at 2:26 amNow can we talk about why romance novels have such terrible looking covers Gareth Trevor July 13, 2021 at 2:26 amDon't write series romance call misery or bad right will happen to you mister19stick July 13, 2021 at 2:26 amimpenetrable, heh. Hanskah July 13, 2021 at 2:26 amWhy is PBS teaming up with Lindsay Ellis? Shouldn't they be above her level? Tanja Horvat July 13, 2021 at 2:26 amRussian novels "War and Peace" and "Anna Karenina". Francine Gee July 13, 2021 at 2:26 amI will also thank Patricia Highsmith for giving us "Strangers On A Train" which was made into a movie of the same name by Alfred Hitchcock. Verrrrry entertaining!
