Why is romance such a big draw?

book_2602038800Have you ever wondered why the biggest genre being sold in books is romance? It’s a huge market in any way. People are constantly looking for romance. In most cases people leave no stone unturned.

This is my thoughts on this phenomena. I think that everyone wants some kind of romance in their lives. It could be in their marriage, in their relationship with someone or just simply in their lives. Maybe it’s the fact that a good romance novel can take you to another place and let you live through the characters for a little time.

Sometimes people just need to read about it. It makes them feel better about things in their lives. Maybe it’s just the feeling of getting lost in someone else’s life. Do you need to get lost for just a little while? It’s a safe way to go to another world, to leave your own troubles for just a moment.

I know personally that I love to get lost in a good book. Especially if the book has a sweet romance or the promise of romance in it. It draws me in and makes me smile. I catch myself sometimes looking forward to picking the book back up to get to the next part. Have you ever been so into a book and just had to read through the night because you were so drawn in? Yep, I recognize that look, you have. What’s worse is when it’s a week night and you’ve got to get up early the next day, but you can’t help yourself 🙂

So pick up a romance today. Even men can get into a good romance novel. Men write great romance too.

As always, good writing and May God Bless You….book_2602038800

  1. Now that’s a co-incidence if I ever saw one! It was just yesterday me and my mother were talking on the same topic. I was of the reason that our lives hold much struggle, especially man-woman relationships, where sometimes one lacks understanding or trust, or simply lacks the knowledge of what the other needs. In such times, most women (and some men too) turn to romance books. One needs to hold on to the hope that in the end all will be well.

    Romance brings that hope into the lives. It makes a wife believe more in her husband’s logical reasoning when she knows she has no cause to mistrust him, it makes a husband understand the needs and feelings of his wife. One way or another, romance books touch the heart and soul of a person.
