I've voted - and not for GWTW. But should this book really win, I will read it in the spirit of the bookclub again. Hope there aren't any slow readers out here as this is rather largish book and will take some time to read through.

Having fingers crossed that other people vote for other books as well - I am really not that keen on re-reading it. Trust me, the movie is long enough as it is, and I find the main characters just so annoying.


And btw, [warning: kind of spoiler happening]
this is a book without happy ending so shouldn't be in the Romance category (where they always get eachother, one way or other)

Ups, I hope I didn't spoil it now

I voted for Romancing Mr. Bridgerton. I figure if I'm going to read a romance, no sense in going half way.

I have not figured out how to vote, since I have already read 6 of the choices, and one of the other 3 has been on my to be read list for several months. I guess I will vote for that one--His Robot Girlfriend.

Wow. Talk about being blown away. Here I was, reading through the abstracts for the books in question, totally ignorant of my own book's place in the list until I stumbled across it. I'd say it was humbling, but it is in fact probably giving me a bit of a swelled head. For myself, I'd choose The House of the Seven Gables, though I'm right in the middle of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies.

I chose the House of the Seven Gables. I've been meaning to re-read both Gone with the Wind and Wuthering Heights, but I generally don't like to vote for books I've already read. I'm not much of a romance reader, but I re-watched GWTW the other night and I realised that it's been so long that I couldn't recall most of the details.

I don't think I have ever seen an author admit that Fwiw I thought your book was well-written and a little sweet, but it had no plot so I didn't vote for it

I love Mills and Boon (or rather, Harlequin in the US).

Can't see how it's much worse that Star Trek novels.

Mills and Boon use different types of photon torpedoes.



Sorry.

As well it should be. Being nominated to be voted on in the MRBC is a hugely prestigious honor.

It's pretty much outlined in the first message here:

Things have changed a bit since then. I keep meaning to re-do that first message... but you know how it goes.
