First Romance Book I Read

I wish I could remember what my first romance book was, but it came during a time when reading was not a passion for me.  I do know that it was a historical romance that belonged to my mom while I was in high school (early 2000s).

💖Ezrah: I also don’t remember what book was the first one but it was a Harlequin Historical Romance. I did narrow it down to 3!


Favorite Romance Genre/s

I LOVE Contemporary Romance!  I especially love rom coms!

💖Ezrah: I’m a new fan of contemporary romance and I am in LOVE!


Favorite Romance Tropes

Enemies-to-lovers is my absolute favorite, but I also really enjoy second chance romance, friends to lovers, and small-town romance.

💖Ezrah: Small-town romance is one trope that I want to get into! I haven’t read a ton of books with that trope yet.


Top Auto-buy Authors

R. S. Grey Author Author Christina Lauren Author Devney Perry
R.S. Grey Rachel Higginson Christina Lauren Devney Perry

💖Ezrah: I am a new Devney Perry convert! Her books are so poetic and just peaceful and calm but very, very emotional!

Favorite Quote from a Romance Book

“Hope is a gap between what if and what is, but you have to fill that gap with a lot of hard work.”

Long Shot by Kennedy Ryan


Favorite Thing About the Romance Community

There are so many amazing people in Romancelandia — I love that there is a group of people that love love and a HEA so much.

💖Ezrah: I love getting to know a lot of romance readers – especially in this community! For the most part, it has been drama-free (mostly) and also positive (mostly).


Romance Myth that You Hate

I hate the stigma that romance books have; that some people might feel ashamed to admit they enjoy reading romance or that some people are too ignorant to accept that the romance genre is not trashy.  There isn’t a single thing wrong with sex, shirtless men on covers, or wanting to experience a happily ever after.

💖Ezrah: Yes! I was like that back in high school. I felt that I had to hide my love for romance and I actually had a “serious” book title in mind whenever someone would ask me what my favorite book is.
