Megan I like it :) This is one of my fav types of books to read.


message 4: by Lesley (new)

Lesley I love this type of story. Looking forward to checking out some of these books.


Kagama-the Literaturevixen How unusual?

Because I am reading a traditional regency at the moment where the heroine has such a dreary life she has retreated into a fantasy world.

Its a bit strange really...but it would fit the criteria.


message 6: by Connie (new)

Connie Ballesteros I love this list!!! It's awsome! I can't wait to add some to my read


message 7: by ᴥ Irena ᴥ (new)

ᴥ Irena ᴥ Lover Eternal (Black Dagger Brotherhood, #2) by J.R. Ward is a paranormal romance/urban fantasy, not a historical romance.


message 8: by Summer Breeze (new)

Summer Breeze I haven't read Twilight but I'm pretty dang sure it doesn't belong here. Some people vote their favourite books on every list they see. Next thing I know Twilight is gonna end up on Best Non-fiction book..


message 9: by Paola (new)

Paola M.K. Schiller's The Do-over is contemporary.
