Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly event hosted over at The Broke and the Bookish.
I’ve been blogging for five and a half years now, which is just amazing. I’ve changed a lot in the past 5 years, and so has my blog. I started off as mainly a YA book blog, but have shifted into a romance book blog. But I used to read romance all the time when I was in college. I had a few years where I wasn’t reading it much, though. Anyway, here are some romances that I was obsessed with long before I began my blog.
In no particular order . . .
What Happens in London by Julia Quinn
I’ve talked a lot about this book, and have read it many times. I was so nervous when this came out, because I was so disappointed in the previous book in this series. Also, at that time I was struggling finding romances that I liked. Thank heavens I read this, because it has become a major favorite of mine.
The Viscount Who Loved Me by Julia Quinn
This is such a special book. I don’t know if anything will ever top the Pall Mall scene in this book.
Castles by Julie Garwood
Honestly, almost every Garwood historical could be on this list, but I’m trying to have a bit of variety. I love Colin and Alessandra so much.
Honor’s Splendour by Julie Garwood
This used to be my favorite Garwood book for so long. It’s not The Secret, FYI. But this one is fantastic, and I love it so much.
Dreaming of You by Lisa Kleypas
Before the Wallflower series came out, this was my favorite Kleypas book. It’s fantastic, and if you haven’t read this, but have read Kleypas’s historicals, you really should. Derek Craven is such a great hero.
Just a Hint, Clint by Lori Foster
I love so many of Foster’s books, but this is probably my favorite. I’ve read it a zillion times, and will probably read it a zillion more.
Sullivan’s Woman by Nora Roberts
This is definitely an older NR book, but it’s always been a favorite. While it does have some datedness, I can never seem to get enough. Plus, it’s only about 200 pages, so it’s such a fast read.
The Last Duke by Andrea Kane
I used to read this book all the time. It’s definitely not perfect. The dialogue isn’t great, but I love Pierce and Daphne so much, that I don’t care.
Mackenzie’s Mountain by Linda Howard
Oh man, this book!!! Mary and Wolf just get me everytime. It’s definitely the best in the whole series.
Whistleblower by Tess Gerritsen
I actually read this one back when I was in high school. I had read some of Gerritsen’s mystery novels and loved them. I was looking for more and found this one at the library. It’s actually romantic suspense, but I didn’t realize it at the time. I read this so often when I was in high school. I should re-read it now to see what I think of it.
