Because we at Romantic Reads love romance so much, we rarely mention what books we don't like or those that fell short of our expectations.This is why I love end-of-the-year best-of lists - to see what cream rose to the top, and to make sure to add those besties to my TBR pile.
Over the course of the past weeks, the RR community has compiled a thought-provoking list of favorites. And I'm taking it upon myself to name the following books as RR's favorites of the year. These are the books that were repeatedly mentioned in the thread: Goddess of the Hunt by Tessa Dare, An Echo in the Bone by Diana Gabaldon, Not Quite a Husband by Sherry Thomas, and Vision in White by Nora Roberts.
There you have it! Our favorites of the year! But if you look, you'll see that there are two days left in 2009, and I would love it if you continue to let us know what romances knocked your socks off this year.
And that brings us to 2010. What books are you looking forward to in the New Year? Wondering which of your favorite authors are publishing in the coming months? Then visit our 2010 thread and add to the list of romances you're most excited for.
Our last item of 2009 business at RR is the author Lynn Kurland. We've been talking about her books and recommending them to readers who've never tried her. Head here to let us know what are your favorite Kurland books.
And with that, I wish you a Happy New Year! It's been a blast bringing the H2H readers up-to-date on the Romantic Reads happenings, and I can't wait for next week when I can share all the glorious details of our January visitors.
Have a great week, everybody! Enjoy those holiday parties!
