Our prompt for this week is: Which book genre do you avoid at all costs and why?
Romance. Don’t give me that look. I know most YA books have romance in them. You can’t swing a stick without whacking into some teenage hormonal angst in young adult lit. Half the plot is about the girl and boy having the hots for each other. I’m talking about the romance books over in the adult section. Yeah, the ones with the shirtless hunks and swooning women on the covers and bad sex scenes. I can’t stand them.
My mother reads nothing else but romance novels. When I was a teen I figured I’d see what the big fuss was about and read one of her books. Or, I tried to anyway. I was either bored out of my mind or breathless with laugher. Not the reaction the author was probably going for. Gives me the heebeegeebies just thinking about it. Yuck. Now I know why they call them dime-store novels.
