    I know you do like steam a lot, but do you have recommendations for romances with not too much steam? I just finished The Governess Game yesterday…. i am OBSESSED. The steam was soooo similar to my own experience with my first times, I LOVED how it was soo realistic. One of my favorite books of all time 😊

    What bothers me is when publishers market women’s fiction as romance. I like women’s fiction but I don’t like being duped.

    I suspect part of the reason women's fiction is mistaken for romance is because of the idea that women want romance all the time or are more connected with their emotions than men. That's another issue.

    I don't think women's fiction should be its own genre. But it's on the same wavelength of trying to lift up women's voices, as they do LGBT+ and poc. But then, there are people who will assume that it's only for the people about which it was written. So, some people are put off from touching said genre altogether. (Sure there is a target demographic but it's not only for said audience)

    I'm very mad at the name this genre has. "Women's fiction" is BS and that's about all I need to say. But regarding the genre, I don't really mind it. I think I've stumbled upon a few of them and actually enjoyed them (but I get why people would be mad if there's some misleading marketing).
    Tbh, I use GR tags to have an idea. I wouldn't mind if books used something similar 😂

    yes yes yes to all your points. i don't think the issue is that the genre is called "women's fiction" i think the problem is we are lead to believe that anything centered around women is automatically bad/less than.

    I think growing up the books I read were more "women's fiction", which I didn't mind. As I am getting older (in my mid-twenties) I just really love romance right now! Give me some love and steamy times! I find I enjoy the "women's fiction" genre and books but I find that sometimes I feel like it is missing something (probably a focus on romance). But I do read them and find myself enjoying the story. I think it really is unfortunate that many stories get marketed in the wrong genre. I think that leads to a lot of disappointment from readers expecting the story to go a certain way. Both romance and "women's fiction", like you said have an audience and I hope we can get better at getting the stories to the right people. It is crazy that the term is "women's fiction" instead of simply fiction or literary fiction. Nobody, especially WOMEN, should be ashamed to read what they want and there is no need so separate into "women's fiction". Can't wait for the next hot takes video! 💛💛
