Book/Author Thread

Post by Juneberry » 3 months ago

I'd like to find some romance novels that don't have sex scenes as well, to be honest. So far my only luck in that is manga, though. It reminds me I have a bunch to read including some romance novels. I wonder if I'm avoiding them because of their scary supernatural aspect, the fact there will be sex scenes or the fact I struggle to focus when reading e-books o.o

I've read books that can be classified as romance but I can't really remember any that don't feature sex scenes.

It's rather hard to find a non-sexual romance for some reason...

Some prefer their porn in written form.

I can find books with some romance that don't have them. That and most YA romance. I mean I don't mind if they like...elude to it, I just don't care for very detailed in that stuff. XD

I mean sex free romance novels exist I'm sure. I just don't go out of my way to seek them. That said some of my favorite books are heavy on romance in some regards like Norwegian Wood by Haruki Murakami but it has plenty of sex scenes BUT I wouldn't say it's all that distracting.

@Princess MeowsePad being a prime example...

But yeah, even one with sex scenes as long as they're not too integral to the whole story would be fine tbh

If it's okay to have a bit, I really liked Blood Brothers by Nora Roberts. It's a supernatural romance. My dad also highly recommends her 'In Death' series, which is a futuristic cop thing.

Does anyone else make use of the site Goodreads? I really like using it to keep track of what I've read. The reviews on the site can be hilariously bad though.

I personally don't. I have an account, but I never touch it so it's kind of pointless to exist. I should work on that more...
