  1. Hmm... a few good YA recent release romance books are North of Beautiful and Be Strong & Curvaceous.

    I also love a few older ones like Ivanhoe and Men of Iron.

    I REALLY want to read Chasing Windmills, Fake Boyfriend, Perfect Chemistry, Princess of the Midnight Ball and more that all promise romance.

    Oh well, I will just have to wait...

  7. TheBookworm-I want to read a lot of those new romances too-I'm a sucker for YA romance!:)

  8. Yay!! I'm already a follower, and this contest is awesome.

    Let's see....I really love Wicked Game by Jeri Smith-Read..it's a funny/sexy vampire romance (it's for adults, but older teens could read it).

    Umm...A Walk to Remember is amazing as well. :)

    -Lauren

  9. Hmm, I don't know if I've read very many books whose main issue is a romance, but I really enjoyed This Lullaby by Sarah Dessen. It was the first novel she wrote that she said was mostly about a character's issues with love, which I found interesting after I read it and enjoyed it immensely.

    I am following you now, and have posted about this contest in my sidebar on my blog.

    Thank you!

  14. Favorite romance? Soo hard! Lol. Well, there are tons, but I've also loved (almost) anything by Nora Roberts. It was her books that originally started my obsession, especially with romance ones.



    I also notified a few of my friends via email about this contest, gave them the link to this page and everything. You did say that counted, right?

  15. It was hard to decide what is my all-time favorite romance book, but I would have to say Little Town On The Prairie and These Happy Golden Years by Laura Ingalls Wilder. I love the courtship between Laura and Almanzo, especially rides on the sleigh and buggy! :)

    I'm already following.

    And I posted this on the sidebar of my blog under the Grapevine towards the end.

    Thanks!

    Katie-I agree, Nicholas Sparks is great at writing romance.

    Donnas & Book Queen-With both of suggested Nora Roberts, I must need to read her books!:)

  25. Rhapsody-I liked Time Traveler's Wife too-I can't wait for the movie to come out, it seems like we've been waiting forever.

    Bridget-I think Twilight is a romance more than a vampire story, so I count it!:)

    GirlwiththeBraids-A Walk to Remember is such a beautiful story-you can't help but fall in love with the characters.

    Becky-I love books you enjoy so much you can read them over and over again. I'll have to check Lucky's Lady out.

  26. Haha I'm just like every other typical girl, I love Twilight. But I have to say A Walk To Remember was the best ROMANCE novel I've read. I'm not sure yet though, I'm currently starting The Truth About Forever so maybe that will be my favorite, it's definitely good so far.

  50. My favorite "romance," in the strict sense of the word, would be Lisa Kleypas' Secrets Of A Summer Night! But my favorite book dealing with love in all its varieties would be Jhumpa Lahiri's The Namesake.

  59. First book that came to mind was P.S. I Love You, also. I won't ever even watch the movie, as I have imagined these characters in a particular way and don't want to feel "robbed" by the screen version.

    I am a follower, too.

    ReplyDelete
  60. I recently found your blog through other blogs and I'm so glad I did! You have a great site.

    A book that I thought had a great love story was The Art of Racing in the Rain. It's not a YA novel but could be for almost anyone. It has a great love story between a husband and wife but also a man and his dog.

  61. Ok, I am going to take a cop out on the romance novel. Unfortunately I haven't read much romance lately, but I am currenly finishing the Twilight series, so that whole series is pretty romantic. So far Breaking Dawn is pretty much all romance. I wish I had something that everybody hasn't already read lately but the only other "romancey" thing I have read was This Lullaby and I wasn't a big fan.

    Oh, and I now follow you! I am so glad I found your blog from the YA Newsletter.

  75. This Lullaby - Sarah Dessen

    Walk to Remember by Nicholas Sparks. I loved the movie, and of course the book was 20 times better. That is why I refuse to read The Notebook because I know it will outshine the movie, and I love the movie too much to do that. I'm a horrible reader, I know.
