Any suggestions?

Between the end of the school year hoo-ha and just general craziness, I realize that June is coming to an end and I have not chosen the next book club title. Not good, Shannon, not good! There are so many books out there that I have yet to read. So many genres to choose from. Every day there are new books being released. We are all clamoring to read those new books, but what about the old "classics"? I am feeling the itch to reach way back into someone's backlist and try out a classic romance novel for our next book club book. The only one popping into my mind at the moment is Thunder and Roses by Mary Jo Puntey.

So what you you all think? Is there a classic that you have been dying to read (or one you've read and are itching to discuss with the rest of us?) Help a girl out! What are your classic romance recommendations?

Great book! Very emotional and sexy. You won't be disappointed :D

Ooooh! I love me some Old School!

KB and I were actually talking today about the fact that she hasn't read Whitney, My Love. Which I find appalling.

Or, have you read All Through The Night by Connie Brockway? It's superb.

Or, have you read The Windflower by Tom and Sharon Curtis? It's only my favorite romance of all time.

I could keep going, but I think I'm making a nuisance of myself. :o)

Well, Years by LaVyrle Spencer made my DIK list, yet hardly anyone has read it. It's still one of my all-time faves. :) Just a thought.

Ana said...

So, what did you decide? :cough:The Windflower:cough:Whatcha gonna start with?

Ugh! I really, REALLY want to do The Windflower, but for some idiotic reason the Chicago Public Library does not have a single copy. Not one! Neither do they have Thunder and Roses, but that one I can snag on Amazon for a reasonable price.

Hmmm... will contemplate some more and post later tonight.
