AAR 100 Top Romance Meme 2007 ver

Monday, December 03, 2007

I did this last year, so what the heck.

For posts where peeps aren't as lazy as me have listed their own 100Top Favourites:

AAR Blog

I won't try to list my top 100, because I can't. Well, maybe I could say that book X would be included amongst my favourites, but I couldn't list them in order of preference. I like different books for different reasons, and to make things even more contrary, a keeper might not be a favourite.

For example Dillon, the hero of Anne Stuart's Into The Fire, would put this book on my keeper shelf. I would re-read that book simple for him, not because he's swoon worth, just that he's compelling. On the other hand, Julian in Madelaine Hunter's The Romantic made that book a keeper, and a favourite because he captures my heart. And then, of oourse, so much depends on my mood.

Here's the list with cover art over on AAR.

erm... I'm a bit fuzzy on some of these. While the Favourites/Keepers is pretty accurate, I'm not 100% on some of the Reads & TBRs (especially the TBRs, considering several of them have been in the pile for years. And some of them are so old I might of read them when they first came out, but now can't remember for sure.) Plus I'm too lazy to compare them to last year's list for complete accuracy.

I've read 43 of those and 5 are currently in my TBR pile.

raine said...

I am seriously behind on my reading. :-(

Tanya, your reading score is better than mine, I'm running about 50/50 - 39 read, 37 in the tbr pile. Considering how long some of those books have been in the TBR pile, that ratio won't be changing soon.

Hmmm.. I might have to do some sort of TBR pile challenge.

vanessa jaye said...

Probably not, Raine. A lot of the book listed are old skool stuff. There's not a lot of new releases represented.

Gennita said...

Argh. I thought I would have read more but I've only read a quarter of the books listed! ;-( I do have quite a few in my TBR, though.

vanessa jaye said...

I thought I'd have read more on the list too, Gennita. Next year is going to be worse, for me, I think. I've read more outside of the romance genre this year, than in it.

The ones in my TBR pile have been there a LONG time too! LOL!
