Oops. Sorry I missed that one. There were some categories with no books like Debut fiction :dunno:.
I read 4 books on the Traditional Romance category (Heart Block, Worth the risk, Rhapsody, Snow Falls). I was unable to finish reading Love Match.

lol Well, I am still in mostly a brainless reading mood ;-). BTW, have I told you that I and the LT decided to read at the same time while she was visiting Nell Stark's A Princess Affair, a romance between the slutty daughter of the King of England and a Rhodes Scholar :snigger:.

If you don't expect much, which I didn't it isn't the worst of the lesfic books I've read so far. The details fail a lot and I found it, even within the genre, very superficial.

She thought it was not bad. She also complained about some errors.

I had trouble getting through Rhapsody yet thought the end was too abrupt.
