message 1: by joni (new)

joni Is this the "Best ROMANCE novel" list? sure doesn't look like literature to me...


message 2: by Kristyn (new)

Kristyn I agree with Joni! Why are all of the "best of" lists just full of romance novels urgh?


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads Romance is the 1200-pound gorilla of publishing, as far as sales go.


message 4: by John (new)

John Bonner Best bondage? Best books of 2014 for people who think 50 Shades of Gray was the best book ever written? Come on people. I like fluffy science fiction novels sometimes too, but they are not the best books of a given year.


message 5: by Rebecca (new)

Rebecca Huston Considering what the romance genre has turned into, this compilation is not for me.


message 6: by Ashley (new)

Ashley V Just started a list for Best Books of 2014 That Are NOT Erotica. Feel free to add books there if this list doesn't suit you.


message 7: by Donna (last edited May 30, 2014 07:45PM) (new)

Donna joni wrote: "Is this the "Best ROMANCE novel" list? sure doesn't look like literature to me..."Agreed. Even though romance is the #1 sales genre right now, the list is so heavily skewed that it appears someone salted the mine from the get-go. I added a bunch of titles that are from other genres, but since I didn't get in from the start, mine are toward the back of the list. I think I will also check out Ashley's list (message #6).


just noticed that TWO people voted for the same untitled book (no cover of course). Sorry to have added mine now because I've provided a faint whiff of legitimacy to what really looks like a cooked list Not willing to spend time removing them, but definitely heading for a different list!

Thank you for doing that! I am going to do the same thing for 2013. I don't have a link, but will label it the same as yours, only substituting the previous year (so a whole 12 delicious months of good reading!)


message 9: by Joe (new)

Joe McDonough My guess is some publisher of real crappy romance novels decided to create this list as a way of free advertising for their titles. Way to ruin the whole point of this site!


message 10: by Zuzana (new)

Zuzana This list is laughable. Full of trash!

Don't understand why the romance novels have taken over.


message 13: by Sonja L.M. (new)

Sonja L.M. quite right; all this is trash; where is the literature?


message 14: by Jenny (new)

Jenny This list is hilarious!


message 15: by Charlene (new)

Charlene This is a ridiculous list. I think it's cooked too.


message 16: by Dolly (new)

Dolly Youssef I agree with others that this list is full of trash. Where are the great books?


message 17: by Recato Cristiano (new)

Recato Cristiano This is clearly a list for the non-virgins.


message 18: by Kirk (new)

Kirk Wickersham I added the book the creatures you meet at the bar - https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/2...

Has anybody else here read it? It's the funniest book of the year for sure.


message 19: by The Queen (new)

The Queen D. Silly list. Where is Wuthering Heights, Pride & Prejudice, Jane Eyre, and other classics books? Everything on this list (except some of them) are lemmon and banals books since my point of view.


message 20: by Madi (new)

Madi Is this a joke?

Glad joni wrote: "Is this the "Best ROMANCE novel" list? sure doesn't look like literature to me..."

Wow, I was just about to write something along those lines...
I guess I can forget about getting tips on books on these best of lists


message 22: by نفيسة (last edited Nov 06, 2014 06:50PM) (new)

نفيسة no Arabic BOOKS? so i add my red soil تراب أحمر.
why do i add it?
it is a story in anew beautiful place, Zambia in Africa, where no way to run, no money to live, only a wife and her husband in front of an unfair manager, you can touch the fear, love,and also you can feel the power of faith


message 23: by Dagitab (new)

Dagitab Lacsamana this is such a reliable list. thanks “good”reads.
hahahahahahahahahahaha what the fuu is that number one book? siriusly? hahahahahahahahaha

obviously only middle aged women vote on these kinds of lists i reckon. haha

Are you saying these books were written in 2014? This list is only for books released in 2014...


message 25: by Renata (new)

Renata Don't think any of these are currently being voted on as the best work of fiction in 2014. This is laughable!


message 26: by David (last edited Dec 05, 2014 12:37PM) (new)

David Hall A GREAT READ!!Twenty Seven Million; Brian Neary's Twenty Seven Million is the best book I've read in 2014...period!


message 27: by Renice (new)

Renice Maybe the list title should be changed to "Best Romance Novels of 2014".


♥ Marlene♥ I am shocked butt hen I noticed this list was made by deleted user and that answered my questions.

Now I am going to check the other list but I wish this list was not so featured. I do wonder how do they get those people to vote? Is there a site where they ask people to go and vote and then you might win something like a romance novel? lol

message 31: by AJ (last edited Dec 30, 2014 02:43AM) (new)

AJ I don't want to start a hot debate about what makes good literature, but if you don't like these books, don't vote. But please show some respect and don't trash other people's reading choices just because you disagree with them.

I second AJ. Seriously, just go start your own list and not vote on this one. I enjoyed many books on this list. Trash or Treasure is in the eyes of the beholder!

No debate, but it appears "romance" has taken over Goodreads. I guess romance has taken over in readership also.


message 34: by Donna (new)

Donna There's no doubt that romance is a popular genre right now; this too shall pass.
