Today’s ask is a suggestion from AAR reader BeckyK. (It’s a great one!)

How has romance changed since you first started reading it? What changes do you feel are for the better or worse?

I love this question. I’ve been reading romance intently for the past twelve years. From my perspective romance has changed for the better in several key ways.

  • It’s more diverse in every way imaginable.
  • There’s way more of it and it’s become a much less predictable genre.
  • It’s slowly but steadily gaining acceptance from the mainstream culture.

How about you? How have the books you read changed? Are you happy with the current state of romance? What have we possibly lost you wish we still had?
