What Are You Reading Next?

Pile of BooksEvery reader has a TBR (To Be Read) list, even if they don’t call it that.  From new titles to titles you missed when they were new, it is a list of books you fully intend to read at some point, whether now or two years from now.  Priority on the list can change when the mood strikes, leading you to read all of the books by a certain author or every historical romance set in New England you can get your hands on.    I find that no matter how many books I read, the list of titles I want to read just keeps growing.  Check out these titles from my own TBR list, and leave a comment with titles from your own!

Team Peeta or Team Gale: More YA Books for Romance Readers

Anna and the French KissThe popularity of young adult novels continues to grow with adult readers.  Since I last wrote on this topic, many novels of interest to adult romance readers have been released, including some of my own personal favorites.  Although many are not strictly romances, they (like the novel The Hunger Games mentioned in the title) feature romantic entanglements along with the action, adventure or fantasy elements.  If you love teen romances, check one out today!

Have You Heard About OneClickDigital?

headphonesGreat news for eAudio listeners! Items in HCPL’s new eAudio collection, OneClickDigital, are now available for checkout.  A quick glance at the catalog shows 289 romance titles by popular historical, contemporary and paranormal romance authors.  Some of my favorites available in the catalog include Dark Lover by J.R. Ward, Naked in Death by J.D. Robb, The Pursuit of Marriage by Victoria Alexander...

Has Romance, but Not a Romance

Silent in the GraveI read many genres, and I find that even when I am not reading a romance novel I appreciate a romantic subplot in a book.  Many novels in the mystery, fantasy, paranormal, and women’s fiction genres do include elements of romance, although the romance is not the focus of the plot.  The Romance Writers of America’s RITA Awards even include a category for this: Best Novel with Strong Romantic Elements.  Although these novels lack the typical plotlines (and covers) of a romance novel, they should please romance readers looking for something a little different without branching out too far.  Request one today!


RITA Nominees

Love on the LineEvery year, I write a blog about the nominees for the Romance Writers of America’s RITA© Awards, and it’s that time again.  For those that are unfamiliar, these awards are given in 12 different categories (historical, inspirational, paranormal, etc.)  to the best of romance published in 2011.  Some of my favorite authors are nominated this year, and it will be interesting to see who takes home the prize.  Awards will be given out on July 28th; be sure to check back here for the complete list of winners.

The full list of nominees can be found here, but here are some of my favorites:
