I loved the movie Runaway Bride with Julia Roberts and Richard Gere. Funny stuff. And a dream plot as far as we writers are concerned. Julia's character could not commit. At all! (Did you ever notice the guy who she was running from ended up being the lead detective on Law and Order, SUV?)
Anyway, her character couldn't commit to a long-term relationship which led to a lot of conflict. There were so many funny moments as well. It was well balanced.
I write romance novels AND I try to inject humor into them. I try to steer clear of clumsy heroines, so that's not where the humor comes from. But I try and interject verbal responses or thoughts that will make the reader smile or even laugh on occasion.

Do you like to read books that are really angsty? Funny? A combination?
