The Romance Reader Book Tag

Hello everyone! I was tagged by Books Are 42 to do this post. Thanks so much, Ashlee, for tagging me!

I’m not sure who started this tag, but if you know, please say so in the comments! Alright, let’s get started.

What age did you start reading romance novels?

I’m actually fairly new to the romance game. I had been reading YA novels that featured romance for a while, but I only got into the romance genre around 3 years ago. That means I would have been around 25 years old.

If you could pick one hero to meet from your favourite romance novels who would it be and why?

I’m bad at doing these kinds of questions because I can never remember characters when asked about it. I do know that I would love to meet a character with a good sense of humor. Going off of a romance novel I recently read, I might go with Dan from A Brush With Love by Mazey Eddings. He might not have been the funniest of romantic leads, but his relationship with Harper was one of the cutest things ever. He seems like a really good guy.

Who are your favourite romance authors and why?

I am a huge fan of Casey McQuiston solely because of how much I enjoyed Red, White & Royal Blue. I also read One Last Stop a few months ago and enjoyed it (though not as much). Other romance authors I’ve rated 4.5 or five stars include Talia Hibbert, Alexis Hall, Becky Albertalli, Paullett Golden, Jules Wake, Ali Hazelwood, and Sally Thorne.

What is a favourite romance novel to re-read?

I’ve been meaning to re-read Red, White & Royal Blue for a while. I also want to reread The Hating Game because I am interested in watching the adaptation.

What book would you recommend to a non-romance reader?

I would definitely want to go for a tamer romance novel, because some readers might not be prepared for the level of steaminess that some romance novels have. I would probably lean more towards contemporary with romance and suggest Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell.

I rated this one 4.5 stars and it was only because Rainbow Rowell did my favorite character so dirty at only point and I still don’t understand why it was necessary.

Which is your favourite: contemporary, suspense, or historical and why?

CONTEMPORARY 100%. I’m not a fan of historical romances because a lot of them are regency romances where there’s misogyny and classism. I also avoid a lot of suspense romance because those like to include abuse/sexual assault. Contemporary romance is a genre that I can find a nice comfort read in to just relax and enjoy.

Thanks for reading! I tag anyone interested! Feel free to link back to this post so I can see yours!
