Romance. An element that’s almost always present in YA contemporary.
Me being me, I spend most of my time reading YA contemporaries. So naturally, I also read about a lot of romances, which are divided into two main categories: they’re either insta-love or slow burn.
Recently, I started thinking about how both of these categories create such different storylines and really dictate the plot as a whole. Of course, that led me to wonder- which is better? The potentially overused insta-love or the occasionally boring (but sometimes wonderful) slow burn romance?
In this post, I’m going to talk about the pros and cons of both of these, compare them, and then give my final answer to the question guiding this whole post.
Let’s get started!✨
