Books might appear to be simple collections of words on pages, but the stories they tell touch our emotions, allow us to live through the characters and help us discover the richness of the human experience. And what would this experience be without love, passion and romance? Romance books allow us to live the most passionate love stories, make us fall in love with amazing characters and feel joy, sadness and many other emotions as these stories unravel. Why not pick up one of these novels and discover a new love story? Here's how to find a romance novel you'll love.
Get started with romance novels. If you are new to this genre, start with some of the best-selling romance titles. Why not pick up a book that was adapted into a movie you might have seen already? Did you enjoy movies like The Notebook or Safe Haven? These movies were based on books by Nicholas Sparks, and the good news is there are many novels to choose from by this fan-favorite author.
Find more books you'll love. Have you already read a few romance novels? You can easily find more books you might love if you browse by genre or by author. A lot of romance authors turn their stories into sagas so you can find out what happens in the next installment of your favorite series. If you already have a favorite romance novel, look for more novels with similar themes or those set in the same time period.
Do you like to be surprised? If you're looking to jump into the romance genre wholeheartedly, why not try a new author or genre? If you usually read PG-rated books, why not pick up the steamy classic Fifty Shades or Grey? If you enjoy historical fiction, try something different and give paranormal romance a chance. If you've already read several romance novels, discover a new author. Janet Evanovich or Sherrilyn Kenyon could be the next big thing in your romance library.
Browse by author. Whether you already have a favorite romance author or want to discover the universe of a new writer, browsing by author is a great way to find some titles you want to read. Nicholas Sparks is always a safe bet with his complex characters and memorable love stories. Meghan March is a USA Today best-selling author and is one of the staples of the adult genre. Let Chris Keniston take you into her world where happily ever after is possible, or let romantic suspense queen Barbara Freethy surprise you.
Browse by genre. If you already have a favorite romance subgenre or tend to prefer a specific topic when you read fiction, browse for romance novels by genre. There's something fascinating about historical fiction and love stories set in the past, especially when you feel as though you've been transported to a different world. Romantic suspense novels will keep you guessing until the last page, and western romance is perfect for you if you always had a thing for cowboys. Are you tired of stories that involve regular humans? Open up a paranormal romance book where the protagonists can be vampires, angels or werewolves.
Check out new releases. Don t forget to check out the coming soon section to see upcoming releases. This way, you won't miss the next installment in your favorite saga or the next book by an author you love. Romance books are often re-released before a movie adaptation comes to the big screen. Pick up a copy of the next novel that's getting the silver-screen treatment so you can discover (or perhaps even re-discover) the story before the movie comes out.
Choose the right format. Romance novels come in different formats. Paperbacks are great if you're a voracious reader and want a book that you can easily carry with you. A hardcover is a good choice if you want to display it on a bookshelf and want a nice copy that you'll be able to read again over the years. You can also find romance novels in audiobook formats so you can listen to your favorite stories while commuting, cleaning your house or even gardening.
Still not sure? Take a look at the titles listed as the top rated products in a genre you're familiar with. The customer favorite section and the reviews written by shoppers are also great ways to find stories filled with passion, romance and excitement.
