    I'm not a big fan of romance, but i have friends who are and I love the community because they are so open and happy to share recommendations. I've read more romance as more friends have been recommending great books in the genre.

    I think the snobs who turn up their noses at romance need to be reminded about the classics- Jane Austen, Bronte sisters, Shakespeare, etc who wrote literary romances.

    I am loving these videos! I haven't read much romance but now I'm down the rabbit hole with you! I bought A Rogue by Any Other Name a while ago because I kept hearing about it and finally started reading it. I also got Temptation Has Green Eyes by Lynne Connolly after I saw your last video and started looking into romances and it's really good so far! I'm looking forward to your future videos!

    Ooo! So excited to hear what you learn. I dipped my toe in last year, but felt a little lost in the enormity of it all. So this is great timing for me!

    I got into romance quite young, not even out of high school, and even then I was fascinated by the genre and the stories within it. I think part of it is getting to learn about sexuality and sexual intimacy through the eyes of a fictional character, but it's also about romantic and other kinds of intimacy as well. I have social anxiety issues, I can't quite feel intimate connections with others (not just talking sexual) because of these issues so getting to experience and really feel that connection in a safe space, in my own mind and body, is enjoyable. And more than enjoyable, it is a relief for me. And honestly, I think it has HELPED me in my life to help me feel more at ease with other people. Maybe not as much as I would like to feel at ease, but I've seen an improvement in myself.

    I have so enjoyed your Romance vlogs! So much so that you inspired me to move beyond my dabbling in the genre and really dive in. You mentioned "The Ripped Bodice" so I decided to take a drive out to the shop for some first hand recommendations. As with all books, I lose interest when a book is just plain not well written. I explained this to my new friend Bea, at TRB, and confirmed that the Outlander series and the historicals from Lisa Kleypas that I've enjoyed are some of the very best. I had such a fun time walking the store with Bea and learning all about the great variety in this genre. Thanks for the inspiration to really get into Romance. It's such fun. Happy reading! 🙂

    Romance is my favourite genre. I love it so much, I don't tend to tell people as I know they are just going to roll their eyes and dismiss me.
