I read The Notebook and kinf of liked it but not as much as to not revisit the genre til I bought The Time Traveler’s Wife and I changed my mind about romance books. The Time Traveler’s Wife is the perfect mix of light sci-fi, romance and a tortured female main character. There were moments when I loved Henry and others when I hated him and same happenned with Claire: she is a powerful, intelligent and really beautiful, she comes from a great family and yet she gives it all away for Henry. She even risks her health when they try to have a baby! That is something I don’t like about romance books: the female character is always a victim/tortured and, to me, they simply repeat classic fairytales over and over. So, basically I avoid the genre as much as I can, yet there are some books out there that tell more original love stories than the classic Cinderella.
