This week’s Top Ten Tuesday topic is….
It’s a Love Freebie!
Ok it has been far too long since I’ve done one of these. And here I am, on a “freebie” week, talking love. Because for far too long I was the kind who turned up my nose at romance novels. And recently I have grown to love them.
Here are some amazing ones I’ve devoured recently:
Jasmine Guillory’s books
The Wedding Date
The Wedding Party (oops actually I missed out on this one! Off to amend that)
Her books are lots of fun, I like how they are connected through a group of friends, for eg in The Wedding Date, Carlos is a secondary character, but he’s the main character in The Proposal. Also the books somehow manage to make me hungry (I wrote a post about how reading Royal Holiday made me crave scones, and so I made some). And that’s always a plus for me.
Helen Hoang’s books
The Kiss Quotient
The Bride Test
The Kiss Quotient was a book that made me sit up as it was probably one of the first steamy romance novels with Asian characters that I had come across. And it was hot! I have to admit that I didn’t like The Bride Test as much but I am still looking forward to more from Hoang.
Get a Life, Chloe Brown by Talia Hibbert
Such a cute read by this British author. Hibbert has written a few other books but this was the first of hers I’ve read. And especially unique as its main character has a chronic illness. It was one of those bumbling, fumbling types of romances. Really cute.
Emergency Contact by S.K. Choi
This is a YA book but hey, it’s still a romance, isn’t it? I’m putting it in here as the female character is Korean, and I really liked this one although I’m not its target audience. You can read my thoughts on this book here.
Ayesha At Last – Uzma Jalaluddin
This is a modern version of Pride and Prejudice which I was a bit hesitant to read because I had read another re-imagining of P&P before this one, and it did not stand up. Also, P&P was one of the books I studied for my English Lit A Levels and so I do know it (and love it) quite well. But Ayesha At Last was quite satisfying!
What are some diverse romances you’ve enjoyed?
