Stolen from Jennie

>> Monday, August 14, 2006

Jennie posted about AAR's list of Top 100 romances (the one that was updated in 2004), and because I'm all about lists, I loved the idea and immediately stole it.

If I'm counting correctly (I had to start a couple of times, because I kept getting lost), that makes a grand total of 80 read, 7 in the TBR and 13 I haven't read. And of the latter, there are a few I probably never will read... I tried Garwood a couple of times and she's just not my cup of tea. Same for Heyer (sacrilege, I know), though I might be persuaded to give her another chance, which I very definitely won't do with Garwood.

So, how many have you read?
