message 3: by April (new)

April Im searching for something to read andy suggestions ?


message 4: by Max (new)

Max I don't really see how these books are catergorized "angsty" I was honestly expecting books like The Bell Jar or some Charles Bukowski journals.


message 5: by Elaine (new)

Elaine Paige Awesome list!!


message 6: by Katrina (new)

Katrina Wow, I came to this list to find new a good romance book and realized I have already the top 12, mmm maybe I should try read something other than romance haha!

message 9: by Tamara (new)

Tamara Oh my god, seriosly why these Fifty shades of gray kinda books are now the top choices for every damn list, specially involving words like 'best' and 'romance'. Seriously, this just make me hate them even more....

Yeh kinda agree, I wouldn't really call Fifty Shades of Grey an angsty romance novel, more erotica than anything and Christian to me is borderline abusive. I tell you 'The Bronze Horseman' is the most angsty book I have ever read, so frustrating I almost gave up on it.


message 11: by Michael (new)

Michael things i learned from this list:

1- there is an entire subgenre i have not read, though do not know if 'angsty' is a lit term...
2- so this is where all the women authors are...
3- looking at these titles... does not encourage me to read them, though obviously they are widely read...man, am i on the right planet?


message 12: by Marin (new)

Marin Reeder I cant wait to read more of this list!


message 13: by Claudia (new)

Claudia A. f. santos Quero ler todos desta lista!


message 14: by Fem Escape (new)

Fem Escape Why did someone make a list about 'intense' and 'angst' filled romance? And why are there so many votes? These romances are the worst. Maybe without the 'angst' it would be ok, but seriously. These books are about people suffering in the name of 'love'. If you want to read about people with miserable relationships, go ahead.


message 15: by Tiffanie (new)

Tiffanie I love this list! And I've read 63 outta the top 100! Haha do love a good angsty romance where my hearts pounds!! I'm always looking for a new romance to read! But only like reading series or trilogies! Don't like stand alone books and this list has plenty! Hmmm maybe I'll make a list for just trilogies and series romance books!

If I break...... And it's my favourite romance series of all time!! The storyline is amazing!!!


message 17: by Trisha (new)

Trisha Madley This is a great list! I've read a lot of these books but so many more to check out.

So glad I'm not the only one. I hate every time I see them on any book list for "good" books. I wish there was a way to vote them down.

They're not angsty romance but poorly written abuse novels disguised as romance.


message 20: by Anand (new)

Anand Yadav Already read 17 of them!!!!
