One of my favorites!

Nina I finally got to read it and it was very good :)


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

Lauren Hawkins Where's Romeo and Juliet!?!?! You can't have a forbidden love vote wothout Romeo and Juliet! Or did I just miss it?

It's #6.


message 24: by Lauren (new)

Lauren Hawkins oh, ok


message 23: by Lauren (new)

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


message 22: 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.

I was just going to say the exact same thing! Geez, it was more like required love!


message 19: by Anna (Bananas!) (new)

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


message 18: 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 16: by James (new)

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


message 15: 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.


message 14: by Rebecca (new)

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

Its on number 7

Looks like I have to read it now lol :-)

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


Ash †Reviews of a FearStreetZombie† So many good books! ahh


message 9: by Rosanna (new)

Rosanna There seems to be a lot of book here that are not "forbbiden love"

Best to check reviews before I chose a book, eh?

Only voted for the ones I read, so can't help you there I'm afraid :-) Unless you're thinking about one of the nine books I voted for, of course... ;-)


message 7: by Rosanna (new)

Rosanna Which books did you vote for? I'm not sure I know how to look yours up :(

As there are only nine, I'll mentioned them for you :-)
Wuthering Heights
Jane Eyre
Anna Karenina
Persuasion
The Tenant of Wildfell Hall
The Grand Sophy
The Handmaid's Tale
The Picture of Dorian Grey
Emma

When you click on the number of people who voted for a certain title, you'll be able to see the names of the voters, but in a list this long, looking them up will be hard, as there are so many books. You should also be able to see only my votes by clicking on my name under People who voted on this list. (Click on the name, not on the photo)

Thought of a tenth one just now: The Importance of Being Earnest. Can't believe no-one thought of that one before, as I had to add it.


message 5: by Rosanna (new)

Rosanna Oh, thank you!!

I'll have to check out those books you listed :)


message 4: by Arah (new)

Arah I want to read "Existence" it sounds really good!


message 3: by Arah (new)

Arah Me too.


message 2: by John (new)

John MacDonald I want to Angelfire


message 1: by Shay (new)

Shay Hawthorne I'm a huge V.C. Andrews fan but I don't understand why "If There Be Thorns" would be so high on this list. I mean, there where plenty of other V.C. Andrews books that fit the bill. I'm guessing it's because this is the book where the forbidden couple are finally actually together.
