What Book Genre Are You?

You might not be a love letter writing romantic, but your passion reaches depths that others don’t recognize. You’re probably an empath because your feelings often take precedence over logic.

You are exciting, intriguing, and hard to pin down. Others often assume you are impulsive and unpredictable, but that’s only because you’re a quick thinker. Your motives often reveal themselves later on. There aren’t many people you trust, but if they’re close enough, you’ll spill your secrets. But you feel as if you’re running out of time. What are you waiting for?
