Looking at Women’s Fiction!
If you’ve watched our Reading Resolutions 2018 video, then you will probably remember that one of my resolutions this year is to read more books outside of the Romance genre. Out of the ones I mentioned, I’m going to talk about Women’s Fiction today.
Women’s Fiction is a genre that has been around for a long time. It’s often associated with authors like Jodi Picoult, Jojo Moyes and Jennifer Weiner. Obviously there is a wealth of amazing authors that write this genre. These are just a few.
The reason why I’m bringing this up now is because I feel like my reading taste have started to change again. Years ago, when I first started getting into reading, I was still pretty young so Young Adult novels were what drew me in. Once I grew a little bit older, I moved onto the Romance genre, where I feel like I truly found my little niche in the reading world. Romance is still definitely my favorite genre to read, but about two years ago, I started expanding my reading by trying new authors of different genres. You can recall a video I did on our Youtube channel where I spoke about my adventures in the Cozy Mystery genre and so far, that has been going on well. I am still really enjoying the genre and will continue to read it.
However, I am once again feeling restless in my reading. I’m yearning for something different. I’m looking for something to once again spark my reading interest and make me glom an entire series in one week.
Women’s Fiction has been on my radar for a while and I feel like this genre might be something that I could also get into. Obviously, it’s written for a different market than Romance, but there are some similarities as well. And while I have read some Women’s Fiction already, I haven’t been able to really dip my toes in it fully. So this year, my goal is to really submerge myself in this genre. Who knows, it might just be the refreshing thing that I have been looking for.
I’m curious if you ever get tired of reading the same genre over and over again and what other genres you like to read apart from Romance? Is there a genre on your radar that you’d like to try in the future? What are your thoughts on Women’s Fiction and who are some of your favorite books/authors?

When it comes to books I’m pretty adventurous. I read everything from Paranormal Romance to Urban Fantasy, New Adult, BDSM, LGBT fiction, Cozy Mysteries and even YA. If it’s got the littlest trace of romance in it, then I’ll probably read it. That being said, my all-time favorite authors are J.R. Ward and Karen Marie Moning.
When I’m not submerged in a good book, you can find me musing about makeup and planners or dreaming about Kpop boys and beaches. Until then, check out my reviews and let’s talk books!
