The Viscount Who Loved Me
This book was another Julia Quinn feast for my reading. I keep wondering how I can stand them, I mean I am very realistic and anti-romantic - I once on a date asked the guy :"Are you gonna kiss me now or what?"
well I didn't like him that much so I didn't care.
But it is like I can spend time with her characters, spend my time - does that qualify as a hobby? or is it even considered reading books? I reached 58 books last year and at least half were of historical romance genre. Is that considered a literary accomplishment?
Still, I was never -ever!-bookish, uni was spent in a flash just merely passing my classes to get the diploma with no effort, my read book list included Harry Potter, the memoirs of a Geisha and 2 Philippa Gregory on Henry VIII era. So from there I moved to Jo Beverly's novels- which I adored- till I tried out Julia Quinn where my fascination took its peak!Julia's books were like walk through the park compared to Jo's. Jo Beverly was more detailed and tiring (lets say..) while Julia is so much more fun and mischevious!
So hear hear to Ms Julia Quinn!
I was googling for a pic for this post and I came across this one above - so cliché... Reminds me of a friend who commented that my readings are Harlequin as in Harlequin Enterprises of romance books. Here lies my dillema whether my reading list is actually that - reading...
