Wall of Kiss is my current favorite; it is about a woman who falls in love with a wall. How cute is that?

Also, I just read Piecemeal June in which a dude falls in love with an alien-esque sex doll and thought to myself "Megan would awww over this ending" and she is my second most romantic friend.

I bet the objectum sexuals and mechaphiliacs of the world are happy that bizzaro fiction has come along to produce romance novels that cater to their niche market. Good for them! Everyone deserves their own niche romance novels...as long as their "niche" isn't illegal...or done in public in front of tourists *documentary flashbacks*

Kelly, what is the title of that book? I'd be interested in it.

It's a hand written book I did for Kelly.

All of them, really? ...Personally, I'd find rape-mance pretty distasteful. And non-consensual incest. And bestiality, unless the "beast" is anthropomorphized...maybe.

lol, Sorry. I forgot this is about bizarro. I should've checked my "logic & literal thinking" cap at the door. I'll keep that in mind for the future ;P

Sky Tongues by Gina Ranalli - Really sweet couple in here by the main character (a hermaphrodite living as a woman who has tongues for fingers and toes) and what becomes her wife

Dinner Bell for the Dream Worms by Jason Wuchenich - The first part is about a really sweet fairy tale-esque romance about a girl and an incubus. Not for someone who is grossed out by poop, though.

I'm just trying to keep my girls here safe from a scare.


message 16: by Catamorandi (new)

Catamorandi (wwwgoodreadscomprofilerandi) I would like to read Wall of Kiss and Piecemeal June. Those sounds very interesting. I have never read a bizarro book before, but those two look like a good place to start.

Bradley (bradley_sands) | 3 comments I like Zerostrata

It Came from Below the Belt is also very romantic.

I suggest Wall of Kiss first if you are looking for more romance, but if you like a bit of grit and action Piecemeal June is the one to go for.

Are there candles?


message 22: by Bradley (new)

Bradley (bradley_sands) | 3 comments I don't think so. Has been a while since I've read it. It takes place in a locker.

The Cannibals of Candyland by Carlton Mellick III - Dude hooks up with a chick made of candy who eats human children


message 25: by [deleted user] (new)

This is an ooolllllld thread.

A lot of Mellick's are really romantic. The Haunted Vagina, Razor Wire Pubic Hair, and Warrior Wolf Women of the Wasteland have been on my mind and they fit the bill.

The Deadheart Shelters has some major romantic stuff going on and is also amazing in general.

Haven't read 'em yet, but The Pickled Apocalypse of Pancake Island and Love in the Time of Dinosaurs both have romantic themes.

Added to my wishlist.

It's some kind of extraordinary genius, I can't say enough good things about it.

Also, I read Pickled Apocalypse of etc. and it was really good. Of all the fucked-up sex scenes I've encountered in bizarro, the one in that may be the fuckedest. It's also very good in terms of the romance stuff. I need to write a review of it.

I don't know if I could read about a pickle...they gross me out.


message 29: by [deleted user] (new)

Just think of them as cucumbers with tumors.


message 30: by Christy (new)

Christy Stewart (christyleighstewart) | 129 comments Mod
Less gross but still bad.


message 31: by [deleted user] (new)

Would it be better without the cucumbers or without the tumors?


message 32: by Christy (new)

Christy Stewart (christyleighstewart) | 129 comments Mod
Both
