Jane Eyre - Manga Classics (#24 on our Top 100 list)

Originally published 6th January 2017 FINALLY, my beloved Jane Eyre gets the adaptation it deserves. I enjoyed this graphic novel so much that I picked it for my best read of 2016. The pacing of this long (324 page) novel is excellent. Jane Eyre is much bigger than the love story, a fact which s ...

A Distant Heart

I have not read Sonali Dev before, but I’ve heard such wonderful things about her books that I was eager to start by reading A Distant Heart. Her voice is so unique and the story she has woven is so beautiful and emotionally wrenching that I'm still thinking of the people in her story days after ...

An AAR Top 100 Romance originally published on February  26, 2006 I know this is romance sacrilege, but when I read Lord of Scoundrels about ten years ago, I traded it back to the ubs. I don’t remember that I hated it, just that I didn’t particularly want to keep it. This was before I started ...

An AAR Top 100 Romance originally published on February  11, 2001 Part of me is always afraid to reread an old favorite, especially if I originally read it in my pre-reviewing days. What if it doesn't measure up? What if it's not as good as I remembered? With Paradise, I needn't have worried. I s ...
