About This Quiz

Movies may be fun to watch, but do you know what can be equally entertaining and educational? Books! With so many types of novels in this world, it can be difficult to choose just one to read. But today, we're not going to focus on horror, action or Sci-Fi books, because we're turning our attention to something a little more romantic ...

A good romance novel describes the journey of the main character, with a particular focus on their love life. They may meet someone in a village by pure luck, or they may already know a friend from work. And sometimes, they don't even want to be in a relationship or to find love. But more often than not, the main character will develop a strong, emotional bond with someone that they admire. They may even deny their feelings at first, but almost all romance novels illustrate this popular phrase: "The heart wants what it wants." In short, romance novels may portray specific situations that are true to life and journeys that could resemble your own love story. So in this romantic quiz, we're going to find out what your relationship status is based on what types of romance novels you like!
