Do you have a sub-genre of book that you’re drawn too?
Most of these books are pretty polarizing with people. Why are they polarizing? I honestly think it’s because these books are mismarketed…People go in expecting happy romances and you aren’t going to get that because that’s not what it is supposed to be.
I happen to be a big fan of them though, I welcome all the dark and twisty as a girl who reads a lot of romance…. and I love “sad romances” aka books that have some grief, make you think a whole lot about life, that happens to have a love story. I feel like every one of these books smashed my heart a little but also reminded me how precious life is.
These are some favorites:
- After I Do by Taylor Jenkins Reid (review)
