Romance Genre Haters Getting Me Down
Posted by Bookswagger
I do not know about you but I have been reading romance for some time and one thing that has never changed is the romance genre haters.
I am tired of people who do not read romance or any sub-genre of romance telling me what real literature is or that what I am reading is garbage or porn. The use of the P word drives me nuts and is the sign of someone who has no clue. It hurts when it is coming from someone who knows that you actually love reading romance or how important it is to you. I mean really? No F%#king Really?
You read Nicholas Sparks? Oh there is no sex in there right? Mmmmm
Oh You read Patterson, oh okay? Again nothing in there?
Like do you think all 300 pages of the novel I am reading has the heroine flat on her back? You think I have one brain cell and that is all it would take to keep me stimulated?
I have always been of the mind I like what I like and my immediate family has my back one hundred percent but I had some hate thrown my way by the most surprising of people lately. Good thing I have a book con coming up, I could use a little fellow book-lover love!
Also why do people assume just because you read something you want to do it? I mean dag, If you read about a dude jumping off a cliff in a book should I assume you also want to jump off a cliff… Just saying.
