What are your favorite romance novels? :)

This question is NEARLY IMPOSSIBLE.

This is an extremely condensed list because to truly and properly answer this, I would need the assistance of my library check out history, my goodreads account, bookshelves that have since been rent asunder across two states and two countries, and for everybody that I’ve forced to read various shitty romance novels plucked off my shelves to return them to me. So, by author:

Julia Quinn

  • The Viscount Who Loved Me
  • Romancing Mr. Bridgerton

Lisa Kleypas

  • Suddenly You
  • The Wallflowers series
  • The Hathaways series

Mary Balogh

  • The Bedwyn’s Slightly series (OMG WULFRIC)
  • Simply series

Jilly Cooper

  • The Rutshire Chronicles (these books are the ones I am most genuinely ashamed of liking)
  • Pandora

I have more. But I have to stop here for my own remaining shreds of dignity.

The Lunar Baby Thermometer was inspired by parents’ natural tendency to place their hand on their child’s forehead in order to check their temperature.

Hey guys, I did a massive blog post about turning Nothing Can Possibly Go Wrong (my most recent graphic novel, currently being serialized online) from a prose novel into a graphic novel (the photo above is one of my oh-so-pristine thumbnails). You can read about the whole thing here! 

Share and enjoy!

East Coast Gazette has a terrible editorial focus and tends to use a lot of ALL CAPS but TOTALLY NOT BECAUSE OF HARRY POTTER. Stories in progress as well as snapshots will be listed in the "box full of snapshots" below, website archive for stories and assorted tomfoolery is glitterati.
