Top Ten Tuesday is an original/weekly meme hosted by The broke and the bookish .
This weeks topic: Top 10 things I like/ dislike when it comes to romances in books
Romance in books is my favourite thing! I am a total sucker for romance. If a book doesn't have some romance in it I don't like it as much. Below is my top 5 things I like in romances and top 5 things I dislike in romances.
Top 5 things I like in romances
I love a love triangle and I think I may be the only one who does. However usually I love one of two of the guys and have a major fit if the girl doesn't choose who I want. Maybe I don't like love triangles :/
I like the "tortured guy" or the "issue guy" I love a guy in romances to be 3D not 2D, to have his insecurities.
I like geeky romances, the girl picking the geek, the geek winning over the jock or bad boy but in the other hand I like the jock/bad boy to fall for the geek girl.
I like friendship romances. Friends to romance seems more real.
I like insta love, depending on the genre of the book. Contemporary romances need to be real, insta love doesn't really work well in them but in a PNR a little insta love is alright,/it's usually because of some prophecy.
Top 5 things I dislike in romances
I don't like guys to be mean for just being means sake. If theres a reason, if he's the issue guy thats kinda OK but if theres no reason, I tend to want to hit him :)
I don't like when it's so obvious the main characters like each other but dance around each other for the whole bloody book a really really slow burn romance is not for me.
I don't like romances where it's all about sex. There's more to romance than that however as I am currently reading 50 Shades and loving it maybe am contradicting myself LOL.
I can't think of a fifth, coming up with 4 dislikes was hard enough LOL.
I have to say I found this weeks top ten hard I have never really though of what I like and dislike in romances. I tend to just pick up the books that have similar romance feels to the other books I read not thinking oh may be I don't like that aspect of romance or I love that aspect of romance.
So what do you like or dislike in romances leave me a comment below and if you have a top ten this week leave me a link :)
