FP Friday - Website Recommendation

For this edition of FP Friday, I’m deciding to do things a little different.

Basically, it’s been really hard to find some of the amazing stories that I have previously read online due to plagiarism and authors protecting their work by taking it down. Really, it makes me both sick and sad that someone would take someone else’s idea and pass it off as their own. Who does that benefit? Does a person really feel as though they have accomplished something when they get a comment or review on something that they posted but didn’t create themselves?

Anyways, this week is going to be a little different and I’m featuring A Drop of Romeo. This is an amazing website that specializes in listing some great online reads. If you’re wanting something to read but don’t have a book handy, but do have internet access, then this is the place for you.

Juliet, the faceless wonder who runs the site. Her introduction really sums it all up, so here it is.

Hello. I go by the alias Juliet.
Don't you ever have a yearning to read a romance story...but with specific details? Like, you could suddenly feel like reading a story about a girl who falls in love with a werewolf. Or if you feel like reading a romance where the geek goes for the jock?
A Drop of Romeo is the solution to your problems! Cue in cheesy, ridiculously cheerful music.
Just kidding about the last paragraph.
So, this site will mainly be run by you! Yes, you, staring at the screen, wondering why you are still reading. You send recommendations for the categories and stuff, so we can make a place where you can get straight to the story you want to read. Capiche?
I thought so.

So there you go. The lovely picture was provided via the website but the poster was taken from here and altered by me.

Hello, there. It's Juliet. I just got a chance to see this and it's absolutely lovely! Thanks for featuring ADoR. :) I'll be sure to mention your blog on the site. Oh, and I'm glad to see that Perfect Chemistry is on your TBR list. I <3 that book.
