Many romance novels that I have read often portray the mate as “perfect” or “irresistible”. Even if they aren’t perfect their good qualities are more noticeable than the negative one’s. I have noticed that this happens more often with teenage romance novels. A lot of romance novels have happy endings. I’m not saying that that’s a bad thing. But have you ever read a romance novel that doesn’t have a happy ending? Or one where the main character doesn’t get the guy or girl that they wanted to be with? A good example of that would be the book version of The Little Mermaid by Hans Christian Andersen. (It’s actually a fairy tale not a novel but it’s a story.) Does she marry the prince in the Disney movie? Yes. But in the original story she didn’t and it also had a completely different moral. But it’s still a great story in my opinion. I’m not complaining about anything I am just typing my thoughts on this. What are your thoughts on romance novels?
