Hi, my name is J…
…and I’m a romance-novel-aholic! 😛
I knew that I was pretty obsessed, but when I sacrificed getting to work on time this morning, to stop by CVS and buy a book to bring with me on the train (that left a half an hour later!)…I realized I had a problem. 😉
Besides being a total romantic at heart, I think I love romance novels because they allow me to escape. They’re never a challenging read, so I can quickly and easily get sucked in to a world that always has a happy ending – boy meets girl and lives happily every after, and usually gets pregnant to boot!
I was in need of some major escapism this morning – I was trying to snap myself out of my depressed mood, and all of the books that I’ve been saving to read required too much thought or sadness – so I stopped to pick up a Nora Roberts’ book, and it absolutely did the trick! I arrived at work (albeit, an hour later than normal) a happier person than I left home. Thanks Nora. 😉
