It’s not an easy task whittling the vast field of romance down to one hundred titles– but the specialists over at NPR have done an amazing job of picking some of the stand-outs in the field.
Reading this list is like a trip along my bookshelves: M.M. Kaye, Mary Stewart, Victoria Holt, Susanna Kearsley, Judith Merkle Riley, Judith McNaught, Jude Deveraux, Susan Elizabeth Phillips, Kristan Higgins….
And I’m so very thrilled that The Secret History of the Pink Carnation is one of the 100!
(My sixth grade self is hyperventilating a little at being on a list with M.M. Kaye, Victoria Holt, et al.)
So if you’re looking for a good book to read this summer, check out NPR’s top 100 romances!
