Why You Should Read Romance Book Series
Reading a series is a great way to get to know a book author’s world, characters, and themes. Plus, because romance themes and tropes can be mixed together with so many genres, romance series are a great way to branch out of your reading comfort zone. For example, there are so many fantasy books out there, and starting off with a romance series set in a fantasy world can be the perfect stepping stone to seeing what other genres you should fill your virtual library with.
If you prefer to binge-read your books, we have some good news for you: romance series are perfect for binging! By being familiar with a set of characters and the world created by the author, you’ll become invested in the different storylines and see the characters get their satisfying endings. You’ll have plenty of pages to keep you busy, which is great since “reading comes with a number of mental and emotional health benefits, like increased empathy and creativity,” as mentioned in a Clean Plates article on binge reading.
So whether you’re looking to get lost in a sweet contemporary romance or be immersed in a historical romance, we have the perfect book series for you.
