KatieV I put a few contemporaries on this list, because I didn't pay enough attention to the description (HISTORICAL). I'm a librarian, so I deleted those and several others I personally know are contemporary. There are a few others that look questionable, but don't want to delete anything I'm not sure about.


Emma Deplores Goodreads Censorship Is this meant to be a wall of shame, or is being high in this list a positive thing?

Ya know, I don't know what the original list creator (Mai) intended. Looks like she hasn't been active in over a year :(

I think it could be either good or bad depending on your taste. Some people like to read books with a cruel hero. I've voted for books that were both my favs and ones that I hated as long as the H fit the bill.

Ooops, I missed the historical in the description. I'll delete my votes for Christian Grey, although he sure deserves to be here :p

I'd agree if I could force myself to take him seriously ...as he runs his fingers through his just f'd hair.

Oh boy :-) I can see I wasn't the only one annoyed by the book. At least I had a good laugh when I read the comments here, as well as reading some of the reviews given for the book ;-)
