My top books!

Yup, I managed to finish ranking them while taking a break from the sun (I don't want to get crispy, after all). I won't post the whole list but I did manage to drag out 100 - and I submitted them all just because it might help in the overall count.

Quite a list! I've heard of a lot of them, but there's some I need to look into. Guess I'll be adding more books the dreaded TBR :-)

I'm pretty sure I got your ballot to put into the spreadsheet.

Have you read any of Brockmann's Loveswepts? Awesome! I'm not a big fan of SEP but she's getting lots of votes.

Wow, your historical number is the highest but I sometimes consider paranormals to be contemporary. Not so much nowadays with 'new worlds' being created but I would count Dream Man as a paranormal contemporary.

Hope you are having fun in the sun you lucky lady!!

Ooh, I didn't break mine down by genre, but now I want to. I'm guessing our percentages might about match, though I probably have less paranormals. I love my historicals too.

And I'm way jealous that you're at the beach. ;)

Dev - I know! Every time I see someone else's list, I start making notes. :o) Like the TBR needs increasing...yikes.

Cindy - you put my ballot in? Cool! I'm sure you did a fine job. ;-) I have read a good many of Suz's Loveswepts - they're very good - and finally they are being re-released (a few, anyway). You don't like SEP?? I love her! Obviously. :-D

Jennie - I was surprised at how many historicals popped up on my list...but I don't know why. I know I read way more of them. And I do love my paranormals, although good ones are few and far between nowadays, it seems. :o)

Sadly, I'm back from the beach now, peeps. :o( I'll post pictures soon - along with my thoughts on All Through the Night. I finish the audio book tonight. It's been excellent!
