And the two books from 2004 I graded A are:
CARNAL GIFT, Pamela Clare, Historical romance
BET ME, Jennifer Crusie, Contemporary romance
I really love Pamela Clare's writing. She's a newish author (this is her second book) but she's terrific. And I didn't like Crusie's two most recent books at all; I was really pleased to pick up BET ME and enjoy it so much. It was much more like her older books, IMHO.
So how about you? What were your favorite books in 2004?
