I have all these blog ideas but no motivation to work on them...I think I'm getting internet burnout because I barely even glanced at my laptop this weekend.
Anyways, I've been thinking a lot about the first romance that I read, and how old I was when I read it. It was "Burning Obsession" by Carole Mortimer, published in 1982. I was around 11 or 12 years old when I read this book, and it opened up a brand-new exciting, and yes, confusing, world to me. It's one I've inhabited ever since.
Santuary's Finest did a post on what age is appropriate to be reading romances. Now I know that a lot of people feel that age is way too young to read romances. Heck, I think it's way to young to be reading "those kinds of books". But I did...and my mom knew I read them. I guess having her read them first let her know what I was reading and she would have stopped me if she would have felt they were too adult-oriented for someone my age and maturity level. I think it was her way of avoiding "the talk", and hey, it worked. Neither one of us had to go through that embarrassment. Thank God.
So, what are your thoughts?
