    Eleanor & Park, or why I don’t read YA romance | High Browse Online 19 Aug '14, 12pm

    I’m not emotionally cold, contrary to common belief ever since my Un-Valentine post. As a matter of fact, I have a love-hate relationship with romance novels. I sometimes get the same feeling when I read my horoscope, but that’s story for another day. Recently a fellow librarian intro...
