What do you prefer: romance novels or films?
Over time there have been a range of great films that have been brought out. Have a look at some ideas people have said they liked
There are novels on all sorts of types of romance. Perhaps it comes down to whether you prefer the written word or are a visual person? Or perhaps you prefer books because they're longer?
Neither really, as I'm not one for romance. I would choose films though, because you get RomComs, which can be entertaining.
You get romcom books too.
I've never come across them, but then again, since I avoid the romance section in bookshops, I wouldn't know.
There's a lot of crossover between romance and other genres. For example between romantic suspense and crime novels, so books that you might or might not consider romance show up in other sections of bookshops some times.
For romcom type romance I'd recommend Jennifer Crusie. Janet Evanovich does crime/romance that's also pretty funny at times.
I don't like crime novel either, but in general I don't min romance with crossover. I tend not to think of them as romance novels, but the other genre it is crossing over with. It is books where the romance/relationship is the focus of the story that I don't like it.
