Thoughts on romance in fiction

Soulless - Gail Carriger, Gail Carriger

I know I am in the minority here, but I really dislike romance and romantic subplots. I believe this probably contributes to my preference at times for non-fiction, because sometimes I feel like I'm drowning in all the emotional ups and downs of romance regardless of which genre of fiction I'm reading. I know that romance is what sells, which makes it very difficult for me to find books I can finish, much less love because they almost all seem to focus so much on love, crushes, and sexual tension, I just don't get it.


With that said, I am just now getting into the point in Soulless where the romance really picks up and I find myself less interested. Up until now, I've really enjoyed reading it, so I hope that I can stick with it.
