Why 'contemporary' romance only? Why not just 'romance'? There is an historical romance I'm very much looking forward to... 😊

I don't quite understand. Don't you want us to get rid of anticipated books not published in December 2020?

Every Last Secret, for instance, is said to be first published in October 2020.

Unfortunately, it's because people don't read directions. It happens all the time on these lists, so we check them occasionally or when someone posts that there's a book that needs to be removed. Thanks for letting us know. I've removed 9 books that don't belong.

Just wanted to let you know that the date changed to December for Every Last Secret. That empty edition just hadn't been updated. I corrected it and left it on the list.

Rozberry🍓 Hi Anovelqueen 😊. Just a little FYI someone added Little Lies & Heart Bones. Both are out before December.

Ok, I did that but didn't see the book listed so it could be voted on so I wasn't sure it worked properly.

As far as I know, authors can't add their own books to a Listopia (besides, that is not what a Listopia is for).

I wasn't able to add any books - whether they were my own or not. I had readers ask how to add one of my books as they weren't able to either. It appears that nominations are still happening but I may be incorrect on that and nominations may be closed.

Johanna Lucky Girl (Vegas Billionaires, #3) by Jana Aston--someone might want to reach out to her to clarify this. As far as I am aware she does not have any books coming out soon

I can't find any talk of Lucky Girl coming out; however, Jana herself added the book and the date to GR. She did it a long time ago, but I don't think I should remove it until there's confirmation. I can mark my calendar to check back on 12/2 unless we get some sort of confirmation before then.

Nay J.L. wrote: "This list but it looks like one of my readers figured it out...."

Okay, I wasn't sure since you mentioned nominations being closed. Just FYI, these listed can have books added to them at any time. We just try to keep an eye on them and make sure the books that are added fit the criteria of being romance and published in the correct month. Glad she was able to figure it out!

Thanks. I'll go through the list right now and see what needs to be taken off and also remove the ones you mentioned.


message 34: by Nay (new)

Nay Deleted the four mentioned and a few others.

Unfortunately, no matter how well we try to explain it in the list description/instructions, people invariably come along and, without reading the instructions, add the books that they plan to personally read in December (or whatever month).

And, of course, there are those that just want to advertise an author and simply don't care about the instructions.


kittykat (Jo Tortitude) Nay wrote: "... people don't read directions...." Somewhat amusing (as well as frustrating) for a site full of so called readers!

No 32 The Wrong Family by Tarryn Fisher is a thriller not a romance.

Ditto with no 75 Every Last Secret by A.R. Torre (no clue why 12 people have shelved it a romance?)

No 94 A Dance of Smoke and Steel (A Gathering of Dragons #3) by Milla Vane is a 2021 release

Yet Trantor Media has the release date noted as Oct 26th 2021. It probably moved from the original date that it was planned for.

You're right. Dates get moved quite a bit and this one is still December on Amazon--just hasn't been updated yet. I'll update it on the book page.

The people who marked A. Torre's book romance are probably people like me who are used to reading her romances and just assumed without reading the blurb.

If the books you mentioned are still on the list, I'll remove them.
