What we're about

If you enjoy reading light rom-coms and romance novels, and are looking for a group of fellow book-lovers, this is the group for you! Come join us for some escapist reading and discussion... happily-ever-afters guaranteed!

If you're looking for serious literary critiques or in-depth analysis, this will not be that group. Leave your scholarly hat at the door and come ready to revel in the sometimes silly but always enjoyable world of rom-coms. As Mindy Kaling so brilliantly put it: "I can suspend my disbelief in the contrived situations that occur only in the heightened world of romantic comedies. ... I regard romantic comedies as a subgenre of sci-fi, in which the world operates according to different rules than my regular human world. For me, there is no difference between Ripley from 'Alien' and any Katherine Heigl character. They are equally implausible. They’re all participating in a similar level of fakey razzle-dazzle, and I enjoy every second of it."

So sign up, read, and come ready to suspend your disbelief and enjoy some science fiction... er, romantic comedies!
