One of the features I’m most proud of at the Borders True Romance Blog is that each Friday we’ll be featuring a guest column from one of the many awesome romance bloggers writing online today. This week, we’re kicking off with Jessica from Racy Romance Reviews, and she’s talking about escape and art in romance – and what we readers get out of romance novels.
(Also, I want to say: I LOVE her new glasses).
My favorite part of what she says today: “Romances feed our minds by presenting human life, especially romantic love, in its complexity and diversity…. Yes, romance is escape, but not a passive one. When we read romance, we actively embark on a journey with a skilled writer who creates, and invites us to co-create, worlds that nourish and enrich us.” Oh, yes yes yes.
I hope you’ll stop by and join our discussion, this and every Friday. And if you’ve got a recommendation of a blogger we should include on the Friday schedule, please, email me (sarah @ smartbitchestrashybooks.com).
