Romance in Books
In most books today, there is always romance between the characters. Whether it’s the main or the chorus characters, there is at least hints of romance. I personally, don’t enjoy a story as much if it lacks the characters crushing on or falling in love with eachother.
Recently, young adult (and all other books) have added same-sex couples and even romances between siblings. It’s because people now-a-days are more tolerant of being different. To me, expressing yourself is who you are and no one can change that. I can honestly tell you that most of the current generation won’t treat you differently if you’re a homosexual. Yeah, there will always be people who are against it, but the world isn’t perfect. Because it’s becoming more common in our world today, books are starting to catch on.
Here is my question to all of you:
How do you feel about same-sex and incest romances in books?
I have nothing against reading a book that has two guys or two girls that fall in love. I actually am interested in Will Grayson, Will Grayson by John Green and David Levithan. It’s about two boys named Will Grayson and one of them is straight while the other one is gay. The story plot sounds really interesting. So if I ever get my hands on that book, I’ll let you know how it is!
There is this book going around called Forbidden by Tabitha Suzuma. I’ve seen reviews for this book a few times with reviews here and there. At first I thought the cover looked cool but then I read the summary. It’s about two siblings, a guy and girl, who are starting to have deeper feelings for each other. I don’t think I would ever read this book. I get kinda creeped when thinking about falling in love with a brother or sister…
I always here people say “You can’t help who you fall in love with.” I think it’s true to, but when it comes to certain relationships, I guess I don’t believe in it. So tell me, what are your opinions on this matter?
