As you all know, there are different types of novels, like fiction, crime, thriller, family, romance, etc. A survey says romance novels are the most popular. Choosing romance novels over other novels has its pros and cons. In this article, I give you all reasons to choose a romance novel.
Enhances your mood
Assume you are lonely (which most of us are!). And there comes a scene in a contemporary romance that you are reading. The lead role surprises a loved one with a beach date. Imagine the author is envisioning the bright moon, a table set amidst beautiful white waves, and your favorite dishes being served. Won’t you just run this scene repeatedly for at least two days? Romance novels enhance your mood and make you feel alive.
Enriches your life
Now take the same beach date scene of your romance novel. After reading, you want to live in the moment. And to arrange a similar surprise date for your partner. Want your partner to get overwhelmed, just like the character in the novel? All of us do, right? Reading a romance novel keeps you engaged and enriches your life. Sometimes, you start using your favorite lines of the novel with your partner. By living those romantic scenes, your life becomes more colorful.
Strengthens your relationship
When you read romance novels, you start noticing tiny likes and dislikes of your partner. For instance, assume you are starting to feel something for this special person. And they are so different from you. And you don’t believe in the opposite attract principles. Now is the right time to check if this will work. It will help if you read an opposite attract romance novel. Choose a novel where the lead roles compete for the same higher position in their company. But they are also falling for each other!
Calms your mind
Steamy and hot scenes in the nanny romance or bad boy romance engulf your thoughts. You get so involved in the depictions. You need to remember everything and get involved in the scene for a while. Such encounters are good to cherish now and then. There is nothing wrong. We are all adults, and everything that aids our betterment is good.
Activates neurons in the brain
Science proves that reading a romance novel activates the neurons in the brain. It stimulates social interactions and increases the overall working of the brain. Scientists believe a regular romance novel reader has 32% less mental pressure than a non-romance reader. Please note that the comparison is between the novel readers and not between the reader and the non-reader. The person choosing other genres like fiction, action, crime, etc., does not get the chance to reduce his tensions and pressure.
Developing a reading habit is always good. But as adults, we all have work pressure and need some alone time to get out of the world. And romance novels are the best solution to the current lifestyle. That doesn’t mean you shouldn’t read other genres. Always follow your heart. But! Try reading a romance novel during a hectic schedule once. I am confident that it will keep you calm. Happy reading!
