Sweet Dreams

Sweet Dreams

My pubescent-adolescent idea of romance is by and large influenced by these books. I wanted to read most of them, devouring each book in about an hour’s time. It was formulaic, predictable and idealistic; yet every title tells a simple story of boy meets girl (or vice versa) gets attracted, faces challenges, overcomes them and boy and girl gets to be together..much like happy ever after. Yet I get all giddy, sigh with relief, cry in despair and delight with joy for every twist and turn in the seemingly perfect love story.

I wish things were really that simple. I miss reading these.
