By: Elizabeth Rowe @ Bookish.com

With so many subgenres to choose from, picking the right romance book to start can be daunting. Should you be reading a Regency romance, like Pride and Prejudice, or something more modern, such as A Walk to Remember? Take this quiz to find out what kind of romance reader you are!

1. Whose opinion do you respect most when it comes to your romantic prospects?
a. Your best friends
b. Coworkers
c. Parents and family members
d. Your mysterious ability to see into the future

2. What do you value in a partner?

b. Someone who’s going places
c. Being involved with the community
d. A dark, edgy side

3. How do you usually get dates?
a. While you’re out on the town with your friends
b. At parties
c. When you’re running errands or buying groceries
d. Sometimes they just appear. Literally.

4. Describe your wardrobe.
a. Jeans and T-shirts
b. Mostly dresses, very classy
c. Very modest—you stay covered up no matter the season
d. You’ve been known to cosplay more than once

5. What do you like to do on Friday nights?

RESULTS:

A. If you scored mostly A’s, then you are a contemporary romance reader. You like your romance novels without too many frills—you can take or leave time travel, but you love a good will-they-or-won’t-they story. We suggest Nicholas Sparks’ classic The Notebook or Waiting on You by Kristan Higgins.

B. If you chose mostly B’s, you’re a Regency romance reader. You’re fascinated by the early 19th century, and you like your romance novels classic and refined. Check out Rogue With a Brogue bySuzanne Enoch or When the Duke Was Wicked by Lorraine Heath.

C. If C was your most common answer, you’re an Amish romance reader. Forget crazy parties and glamorous dates: You like a G-rated love story that focuses on the people and ditches the distractions. You might like The Scent of Cherry Blossoms by Cindy Woodsmall or A Simple Winter by Rosalind Lauer.

D. If you stuck with mostly D’s, you are a paranormal romance reader. You like to run with a tough crowd of vampires and werewolves, and can’t be tied down by a silly thing like time. For you, romance is that much sweeter when it is literally unbelievable. We think you’ll love Insatiable by Meg Cabot orDarkfever by Karen Marie Moning.
