Yep in Romance Novels! LOLOL! I’m teasing of course since I believe I married a good man, and raised three. Good men are definitely out there, but the show up much more consistently in romance novels for sure!
So true confession time: I haven’t been reading romance novels for a few months now. Who knows why, but lately, I’m starting to REALLY miss romance stories and that’s a relief However I’m going to give it a little more time as I must have just needed a break.
What about you all, do you ever need a break from specific things?

Good men are definitely hard to find out in the real world. It took me years and dozens of failures and hundreds of miles to find mine. ;o)
I try to mix it up with genres, so I don’t get burned out on any of them, so yeah, I get to where I need a break. Lately, it feels like the romances I pick up are all ‘been there done that’. When I find one that grabs me, I’m all like WOOHOO. Because we all need a little romance in our lives and I get to missing reading them. I hope you get back to reading romances soon. :hugs:

Good men ARE hard to find. Of course, a hard man is good to find. 🤣 I married one, too. A good man. Okay, moving on…
I’m doing mostly re-listens–entire favorite series because of new releases in a series. I lose track of characters and events because…250 books (average) a year. Anyway, most of them have romantic elements. Of the new stuff I’ve read lately, Karen Hawkins’s THE BOOK CHARMER. I think it’s technically classified as Women’s Fiction and/or Magic Realism. Other than that, mostly Para/UF romance, with a few JD Robbs in there for variety.
Sometimes, though, I need to “clean the palate” and read something besides romance. Like B.E., that usually means a thriller or mystery.

Agreed, good men are hard to find. Though it seems like we each found one.
I get really sick of the sex in books. Lately I just skip over it even if it’s very mild. The story is what I want. I also get really tired of laundry .
Have a fantastic Wednesday!

B.E. that’s a great description of how I feel too. Been there, done that, it was fun but not looking for a repeat. But new and fresh sends me into total bliss!

Silver, I never used to reread, but find I do it more now. Interesting. I mix my audio books pretty well, but physical reading is just such a fail, I don’t even know what I like there anymore. That’s another reason I was glad to get an urge to look for romances to read on my kindle.
I really need to go back to the JD Robb series! And I’ll searching out The Book Charmer too!

Viki, I think getting tired of sex scenes is pretty common. I like when the sex is tied to the story, which is one reason I love paranormal. Plus as B.E. said, we’ve read it all so it’s just old news after a while.
I’m tired of laundry too! And grocery shopping
