Epic Romances:: My Reason for Reading

One of my favorite things about reading is for the romance of it all. I enjoy reading about people who fall in love. I love their stories. I love the feeling I get as I fall in love with them. Pretty much everything I read needs to have some kind of romance. Even if it is just a tiny bit. All the way from Middle grade to adult, I like there to be a romance. I love to feel all of it. It's my reason for reading.

Take a look at some of my favorite epic romances that I feel would really make it in the real world. Well, they feel real to me anyway. I don't see them as fictional characters at all. If you haven't read some of these I seriously urge you to put your tbr pile aside and sit down for some of the most amazing romances I've ever come across. Some are new, some are old. But all have touched me deep inside. They've left an impression and I return to their stories whenever I need to have a little more faith in love.

    1. Don't you just hate/love Mr. Thornton?! Have you seen the BBC adaptation with Richard Armitage? You MUST watch it when you're done with the book. You just have to! I can't get enough of that film.

    1. You must be talking about the films because Bella isn't moody in the books.

  4. I completely agree with Anne and Gilbert! Also, Anna and St. Clair.

    I don't really think Bella and Edward would work out, but who knows maybe they'd surprise us all!

    Check out my list here!
