Romantic fiction can be cliched! Stereotyped! And yet they pull on the strings of your heart, make you smile, make you cry and make you very very thoughtful. Why?

Of course because romance is an ethereal emotion, an other worldly feeling which is never out of vogue! Bur wait a minute, maybe its so special because its other worldly! Maybe because the ideal characters in a romantic fiction behave and do things that we yearn for in real lives. Who would not want a brooding, committed and sensitive lover? But then life has other surprises and maybe somewhere down the line a touch of reality spoils it all ?

Love Story by Erich Segal is one of my all-time favorites. “That she loved Mozart and Bach. And Beatles. And Me.” ?

Happy reading folks!
