My beautiful friend, Haley aka @whimandwitty came up with this brilliant #whyromancestack challenge after someone thought it was okay to question her reading preferences 🤯🙄 I could go on for days about how NOT okay that is but you all are mature, level-headed adults so let’s just skip over that rant, shall we?
Romance is my preferred genre. I read other things, but I keep coming back to the love books because they’re always my faves. Would you like for me tell you about how I think romance is the most well-rounded genre? About how, with romance, you can laugh, cry, be scared or thrilled, solve a crime, save the day, and after all that live happily ever after? Should I talk about how romance can empower, enlighten, and educate? Or maybe we should explore how I, a nearly 33 year-old woman can see my past, present, and future self in a lot of romance heroines?
I could. I could honestly go on and on. But I won’t.
Because what it all boils down to is this: I am a grown ass woman and I can read whatever I want. That’s it. I don’t have to justify myself or my reading preferences to anyone. If you’re so worried about what other people are reading, that says a lot more about you than anyone else. Mind your business. Worry about yourself. Read what makes you happy.
