Rebecca ♥ Matrim, Kishan, Warner ♥ I think some people dont know the definition of forbidden.

Lauren Hawkins yeah, probably. It gets so annoying! And confusing! hah, oh well.


message 12: by Lauren (new)

Lauren Why is the King of Attolia on here? I mean, it's my favorite book (like, EVER), but there's no "forbidden love." It's a weird couple, but it's not "forbidden."

Jess Mallory wrote: "Someone remind me where The Hunger Games has forbidden love"

I know right? I was just thinking that, it's the only reason I clicked on this list. The description says "where characters must keep their love a secret" but that's not the definition of forbidden. I think it should be taken off.

Anna  (Bananas!) I loved Wasteland By Francesca Lia Block.
Want to read Forbidden by Tabitah Suzuma.


message 16: by Therealbadkitty (new)

Therealbadkitty I don't really see how the House Of Night series has anything about forbidden love included in it. Every potential love interest for Zoey is practically throwing himself at her and begging for her to be with him and there's always a "justified" reason for them to be together "The fate of the world" "I've sworn a warrior's oath" "We're blood bonded"

I think people are thinking of Gale's storyline because Katniss is "forced" to be with Peeta and them(Katniss and Gale) being together would shatter the Capitol's control over it's citizens.


message 18: by James (new)

James Dante Yesterday I added my novel, THE TIGER'S WEDDING, to the giveaway list.


message 19: by Therealbadkitty (new)

Therealbadkitty I also disagree about Divergent having forbidden love. There's no reason for Tris and Four to not be together besides just an angsty plot device.

Rebecca Jones How does "Beautiful Disaster" classify as a forbidden love story?!!!

message 24: by Jennifer (new)

Jennifer Larmar Silken Images - This has just hit the shelves in the last few weeks. Look out for the sequel coming in March 2014. 'Life is often tough for Lara, a young divorcee raising a small child. Despite his wealth and a fine position in society, Adam’s life is hell on earth. He is married to a violent alcoholic; she is picking up the pieces from a marriage reeking of loneliness ... and the distinctive stale stench of other women. They never intended to fall in love.'Silken Images
