UniquelyMoi ~ BlithelyBookish | 8001 comments See, that's too hard for me to do because there are so many genres and my moods change....

You need to add a catagory for

Best Book Read While PMSing
Best Book Read While NOT PMSing
Best Book Read After Eating Chocolate...

etc., etc., etc.

Trang Nguyen (laurenataca) | 1 comments Thanks for all the recommendations. I love looking at the GR group conversations and seeing what you guys read. I've discovered Carr, Blake, Dahl, Wilde, and Donovan from all your 5 star reviews.

Best Book - that made you cry... I have so many because I am such an easy person to cry, but off the top of my head would be: Annie's Song by Catherine Anderson
Best Book - that made you laugh hysterically... Didn't laugh hysterically but was definitely a fun read:
Can You Keep a Secret? by Sophie Kinsella
Best Book - with the BEST EVER love scenes... this one is a hard one. I just started reading over the past year but I have read so many books my mind is jumbled up. Have to think about this one..

Best Book - Erotica... Wicked Burn by Beth Kery

I know what you mean, Rachael, about the crying thing, since that happens to me a lot. But I would suggest...suck it up, get yourself a big box of kleenex, and read this book--it's worth it!:) And there happens to be a happy ending, so don't worry--you'll get rewarded if you can make it through the tears.:)


message 21: by Pamela(AllHoney) (new)

Pamela(AllHoney) (pamelap) | 469 comments I rarely get teary eyed when I'm reading but Cry No More by Linda Howard definitely made me bawl like a baby. Catherine Anderson has a few that came close.

Julie Garwood's The Wedding and Ransom made me laugh quite a bit.

Can't think of a particular book but Lisa Kleypas does some great love scenes

Not real huge on erotica but I do like Lisa Marie Rice and Sarah McCarty

I avoid epic type romances :)


message 22: by Bekah, Fellow Kleypasaholic (new)

Bekah (bekah317) | 2750 comments I don't remember exactly which book it was because I have them in one big book with the first three of Stephanie Plum's series. But one of those or maybe all of the first three..bout made me pee my pants, I laughed so freakin hard!

It was a 5-star read for me, Rachael, but there are a lot of people who disagree.:-) I'm actually not an easy crier. I may get teary-eyed, but I usually only read one or two books a year that make me really cry, and Lover Unbound was one of them. I think I just related to the characters really well.

Kathy Anne (kathyanne) After the Night-Linda Howard
Book that I cry the most over

Maverick-Lora Leigh
Erotica

Wild Jinx-Sandra Hill
Book that always make me laugh

One Foot In The Grave
The best in all categories,don`t know how I forgot to list it !

The Last Mercenary and
The Winter Soldier -both by Diana Palmer,
I know she has the same formula for each story but if you have never read her do read these two books.Her love scenes are awsome,and they are real love scenes. I just do my best to ignore the hero until these scenes come up.Linda Howard writes love scenes with the best of them ,and Gennita Lows ,Gem love scenes are the scorchers of all time,

I've read them and they are NOT on the same epic scale as an Outlander or TBH. But I do recall really enjoying them. I'll have to see if I wrote a review I can't recall.
