The topic this week: Action-adventure vs. Romance

I think I'm an action-adventure girl. My sister laughs at me because I refuse to see overly romantic movies, such as The Notebook. As soon as I see a preview for a movie such as that, I'm like, "Ick."

When I visit the bookstore, you will never find me in the romance section. :)  I just really don't like sappy, unrealistic love stories. If I'm reading a book where there happens to be romance in it, that's cool with me, even though I'm not a fan of romance as a genre. Romance (in novels that aren't strictly classified as romance only) is great fun to read about if it's portrayed realistically and done right.

How about you? Are you an action-adventure reader, or do you prefer romance novels?

  1. You sound just like my daughter ~ She thinks syrupy romance is 'ick' too!

  2. Action-adventure all the way! I'll occasionally go in for a romance book but it has to be in small doses. Nora Roberts does a pretty good job with realistic romances. :)

    1. Heck yeah! I'm going to try out the Bride Quartet by Nora Roberts you wrote about a few days ago. I haven't really had a desire to read her books, but after your review, I definitely want to give Vision in White a go! :)

    2. Awesome! It's a quick read so if it turns out to not be your thing, it won't feel like a waste of time. :) By the way, I nominated you for The Versatile Blogger Award on my blog. I hope you don't mind because I know people feel differently about things that look like chain posts but I felt bad because I've already been awarded three different awards. >.< Here's the link to the post: http://thewritersexperiment.blogspot.com/2012/06/versatile-blogger-award.html

  3. I like action/adventure the best too... but my favorite is when the book has a little bit of both! :)

    1. I think it's the best of both when they're combined. :)
