3 Time Romance Books Get you in the Feels

I love romance books. I love how I can see deeply into another person’s relationship and understand what love means in their context. Let’s look at the times when romance books make us feel the most:

1.       When love is rejected. There is nothing worse than getting up the courage to tell someone how you feel only to be rejected. The best romance books make your heart hurt for the rejected person but also keep you rooting for them. We wouldn't have it any other way! 

2.       When you fall in love with a character BUT they aren't real. How many times have you read about someone only to be heartbroken that they don't exists? I had one person in reaction to the 'The Simple Soul of Susan' ask: 'Where are all the Calders of the world? I want my own!!' To which I asked: 'Where are all the Susan's of the world? Find them, and you will find the Calders. If you can't find any Susans become one. I did!' 

3.       When they end. When a good romance book ends, it feels like your best friend just died. Those characters that you surrounded yourself with must stay in the book as you move on and live your life. It's hard, but never forget the good times that's were shared. They won't. :)
