Top 100 Romance Poll
I haven't visited AAR in a long time but since most of the blogs I visit daily deal with the romance genre and there's been lot's of comments about this poll I decided to check it out.
You can check the list here. Of the books mentioned I have read 62. They are all very well known books by authors already well established in the genre, people looking for buried treasures wont find any here but if you're new to romance some might be worth checking out...
I never vote for these things because I have a problem choosing just one book among others as a favorite so having to choose and grade 100 is an impossible task.In no particular order here are some of my favorites that are mentioned in the poll:
Jane Austen - Pride and Prejudice
Jane Austen - Persuasion
Diana Gabaldon - Outlander
Lisa Kleypas - Dreaming of You and Devil in Winter
Jennifer Crusie - Welcome to Temptation
Susan Elizabeth Phillips - It Had to Be You and This Heart of Mine
Laura Kinsale - For My Lady's Heart
Linda Howard - Opend Season and After the Night
I was sorry not to see any books by Jo Beverley, Madeline Hunter, Roberta Gellis, Elizabeth Chadwick, Liz Carlyle, other titles by Mary Balogh...
PS. Lord of Scoundrels is nº1 in the poll, although I really enjoyed reading it whenever I think of my favorites this title doesn't usually come to mind...
