Caught In A Good Romance

Article Type: 

The romance industry is large — more than half of the mass market paperbacks sold in the U.S. are romance — and its readership is vast and varied. The stereotyped image of romance readers was previously unmarried old women (with cats) chasing a happy ending on the page, however unrealistic it might be. Now that we know that people from all walks of life read romance, we can ponder the uptick in diversity? Well, in a time where so much is happening in the world, escapism in the form of solvable conflict and happy endings is a welcome reprieve. Additionally, romance novels don’t necessarily have to be just pure fluff. Many of them tackle complex, real-world problems, from interracial dating to the morality of swipe-based apps to disability to finding love again after loss. These novels have become a place for people to find the representation that they seek -- in a book category big enough to include us all. This Valentine’s Day, I invite you to put preconceived notions of romance aside and try one of these books. You may surprise yourself.
