Yesterday, I was at a friend’s housewarming party, where the discussion was- romantic novels read in recent times.
When it comes to love novels, I sometimes compare myself to a toddler who, among the crowd, keeps turning his head in the direction of sound without understanding a single word.
I used to detest romance novels. As for me, they were unreal. Unlike others, the notion that a prince charming would one day arrive riding a white horse simply horrified me.
So, naturally, the conversation about romance novels at the party made me want to leap out the window.
Do you like romantic stories?
Don’t you also think they are all unreal fantasies of the writers?
Well, I am sure a lot of you will concur with me, especially those who have racked up a tonne of debt during their relationship.
When I shared with my friends what I thought of love stories, they challenged me to read a few works, which completely altered my opinion of romantic fiction.
