I'm here on request from my roommate, who doesn't have a journalfen account. You see, she's trying to get into romance writing, but she's never even read the genre before. She asked a friend for some suggestions, but that friend gave her stereotypical crummy smut novels and my roommate was less than pleased. She asked me for some suggestions, but I'm no good at the genre either. so, if anyone could give some suggestions of good reads for her, then both she and I would appreciate it.
Here's a few things she's looking for:
1: She wants romance, not smut. She's not opposed to smut, but she'd like the majority of the story to be about the couple falling in love and such.
2: Het, Slash, and Femslash are all fine. She mentioned that Het is preferred, since that's what she wants to write, but she has no opposition to the other two.
3: Both published work and fanfiction is alright. For fanfiction, these are the fandoms she knows:
The Royal Tananbaums
The Breakfast Club
Any Jane Austin novel
Any Terry Pratchett novel
She also said that any pairing is alright, she's not partial to one or another.
4: For published works Victorian era is preferred, as that's what she wants to write, but any period is acceptable.
