Blackbird How on earth did Breaking Dawn make the list? O.o I cannot believe this.


message 2: by Shannon (new)

Shannon while twilight is an okay read.. not entirely sure how it manages to be so high up as a romance novel.. the book itself really is just too cool.. and not entirely real romance.. i guess.


message 3: by Jasmine (new)

Jasmine My aim is to read the majority of this list...


message 4: by Grace (new)

Grace good list


message 5: by Emma (new)

Emma Can someone tell me why Fifty Shades of Grey is up there twice?


Alicia (is beyond tired of your *ish) What in the hell is this list? The most unromantic, abusive tripe up there. SMH...this world.


message 7: by Apeksha77 (new)

Apeksha77 Is beautiful disaster that good ?


message 8: by Alisha (new)

message 17: by Chris (new)

Chris I have to agree on the "why is this on here" sentiments for 50 Shades and Twilight. Those are both terrible examples, and I wouldn't even call them romance novels. At all.


message 18: by [deleted user] (last edited Jul 19, 2012 09:17AM) (new)

Jane Eyre and Pride and Prejudice are after Twilight and Fifty Shades of Grey? What?! This list is not accurate people since the books that are most popular now got the most votes.

There are truly beautiful romance novels out there that are not well known and will never be read. The name of this list is wrong wrong wrong.

Couldn't agree more! Fortunately there are still a lot of people out there who know what these classics are worth.

Rarietty 50 Shades and Twilight in the top 5 on a top romance OF ALL TIME list? They seriously beat 949 other romances, most of them better quality AND classics?

I don't want to live on this planet anymore.

People should not call anybody stupid for liking any book. However, I just don't see 50 Shades of Grey being the best romance novel of ALL TIME.

I have read beautiful romance novels that are not well known and would never be voted on here, which is just a tragedy. I just think this list is wrong because popular books are on top and popular does not always mean the best there is......


message 30: by Erin (new)

Erin Nadd wrote: "I liked 50 shades of grey so that means im stupid for liking that book? Thats just great...."

Not at all. It's perfectly fine to like that book, I just don't see why it would be voted as the very best romance novel of all time. I realize this is just a fun list, but just because it's popular doesn't mean it's great.

Sumayya Erin wrote: "Nadd wrote: "I liked 50 shades of grey so that means im stupid for liking that book? Thats just great....."

No no dont think that. It no big deal people have different taste. It probably got voted on so much because people got interested and read it cause of the hype. Sorta how Twilight blew up when it was announced that they were making it into film. I read the trilogy and thought it was good. Not best romance novel of all time but still fairly good. My favorites had to be Gabriels Inferno, love unscripted and Perfect Chemistry. I can read those over and over again :)

You got the point : I was overreacting, well you know how it feels when u liked that book so much and people started to give negative comments about it. I know its natural

message 34: by Jenna (last edited Aug 07, 2012 03:44PM) (new)

Jenna Watts The top five most voted books for "Best Romance Novels of All Time" make me afraid for humanity. The only exception would be Pride & Prejudice and Perfect Chemistry, but Perfect Chemistry-while a good book-definitely shouldn't be on the top five best romance novels of all time.

And 50 Shades of Grey as the best romance novel of all time...? Really, people, really?


message 35: by Reese (new)

Reese Oh. My. God. This is what romance is considered today? How is Fifty Shades of Gray EVER above a literary classic like Pride and Prejudiced? I have to go scream into a pillow or something now.


message 36: by Book (new)

Book So much crap in this list. I could only vote for P&P

I don't like to read and I get bored really quick and I just started to find things that held my attention and it made my list of books I really enjoyed reading. I personally loved it so much that I'm reading it again. It just depends on what you like to read and how much of those types of stories you've read. I recommend it.


message 39: by Alison (new)

Alison Hoe How did 50 shades of gray beat pride and predjudice

HAHAHA this made me crack up but it's so true.


message 41: by Rarietty (new)

Rarietty I seriously wish there was the option to vote down books if we wanted. That would probably make the lists more accurate and then everyone in these comments could go and attack 50 Shades with downvotes.


message 42: by Jane (new)

Jane  Doe Well this is a BS list.

message 44: by Debra (new)

message 45: by Gina (new)

Gina Fifty Shades of Grey...1st? Beating Pride and Prejudice? ...and Twilight? My goodness! Who made this list?


message 46: by Leo (new)

Leo love in the time of cholera??????


message 47: by Lisa (new)

Lisa I came to the list to look for recommendations, but the rankings of some of the titles force me to disregard this list completely.


message 48: by E. (new)

E. Chainey (Bookowski) Romance List? With Porn books? This is not a list of best romance books, I think. There should be a real romance books such as Pride & Prejudice, Jane Eyre, Gone With The Wind, North & South... I started to vote but when I saw the list is full of complete mess porn books I stopped.


message 49: by Dasha (new)

Dasha Drie 50 shades of gray is a poorly written tasteless book about half-crazy sadist, dumb-as-shit sex-addicted ateliotic chick and their sexual perversions. How people can consider THIS as great ROMANCE book is beyond my ken.


message 50: by Mary Nicole (new)

Mary Nicole FIFTY SHADES OF GREY?!?!?!? YOU'VE GOT TO BE KIDDING ME. ugh
