Ironic Contradictions

I'm a long time reader - since way back when I was seven. That makes it over three quarters of my life that I will be a reader for. But it is worth it. When I'm not reading or wasting my time online on here or Goodreads I'll be off playing video games, studying teaching and messing around with friends and pop culture. Or reading some more.

20. Favourite Romance book

Are we talking romance as in the romance languages? As in French, Italian, Greek and so on? If so I pick Les Miserables! And if not well you gotta love any Mills and Boon romance right? Well no, I don't. In all seriousness I love both Pride and Prejudice and Jane Eyre which are often considered 'romance' books. But I don't love them for the romance but for everything they are: the complete story. I'll admit I'm a romantic at heart, I feel it's impossible not to love poetry and not be in some degree, but for me romance isn't my number one looked for thing in a book and many 'wooooooooooooooooonderful' romances don't really do anything for me (for instance I think I was one of the small percentage of Hunger Games fans not really liking the romance. I did like the way it was used in the end and the relationship developments but I never read purely for romance. I look for good powerful stories in books first and if it has those elements as part of the all round story that is a good thing.
