#1 Spicy Spot Blog: Is reading romance good for you?
I don’t know about you, but I’ve been reading romances for… ok, DECADES, and yet, I always felt guilty, as if I was supposed to be reading more serious literature or nonfiction. But I don’t really like reading too much serious stuff. I need light-hearted, happy-ending stuff. I take regular life pretty seriously, so I personally don’t need more of it when I’m trying to relax. As a result, I didn’t tell people about what I read because book clubs are always centered around works that show up on lists like Oprah’s – not around sexy romances! If I did tell people, I’d actually say I liked reading “trash.” Trash. That’s how I described it. And to be honest, there is a lot of trash out there, but in ALL genres of writing!
I’ve started looking for reasons why I might be wrong about romances… Here’s one of my favorite articles that makes me feel darn good about my choices. Maybe you’ll feel vindicated too.
