I'm not depressed that my nomination isn't getting that much of the vote. I actually thought later that Water for Elephants probably wasn't a really great fit for this genre.

Happy to see A Town Like Alice moving up though and as much as I think Lolita is a strange pick for the category, I'd also be happy with having a crack at it for the book club read.

I'm a bit surprised at the lack of movement for Shards of Honor. I thought it would attract the sci-fi vote.

And although I didn't vote for Stardust, it's actually my favourite Gaiman book. I have multiple copies of the physical book at home including one signed by Gaiman himself. It's just that I was hoping for something else to read and discuss for the Romance category.

But I think I'm secretly (now not so secretly) hoping that Love Story or Portrait of Jenny gets up there. They seem to fit the category a bit better than most and neither are particularly huge books to invest time in if you're not a huge fan of romance novels.
