Listless Monday, Twitter-Pated

Listless Monday was inspired by both Amanda at A Bookshelf Monstrosity's feature Books by Theme and Court at Once Upon a Bookshelf's Listed feature.  Be sure to check out their lists!

Last week, I listed heart-broken books.  This week, on a happier note, I am listing the twitter-pated books.  Since there are so, SO many books with happy or at least mostly happy romances (after all the trials, etc), I thought I would list some that I find the most compelling or that I just happen to like.  Feel free to add your favorites to this list. 

The Twitter-Pated:

Anne of Green Gables series by L.M. Montgomery
Beauty by Robin McKinley (suggested by Andie)

The Blue Castle by L.M. Montgomery
The Blue Sword by Robin McKinley
Book of a Thousand Days by Shannon Hale
Chalice by Robin McKinley
Crazy Beautiful by Lauren Baratz-Logsted
Daughter of the Forest by Juliet Marillier (review coming soon!)
Friday's Child by Georgette Heyer (suggested by Andie)
Heart's Blood by Juliet Marillier
I Capture the Castle by Dodie Smith (suggested by Andie)

Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte
Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta (suggested by Andie)

Keturah and Lord Death by Martine Leavitt 
Lorna Doone by R.D. Blackmore
Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare
North and South by Elizabeth Gaskell
Persuasion by Jane Austen
Poison Study by Maria Snyder
Precious Bane by Mary Webb
Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater
Twilight by Stephenie Meyer (yeah, I admit to liking it)
Wildwood Dancing by Juliet Marillier

Feel free to give me your suggestions!

If you buy through my Amazon linkage, I will get a very small percentage


  1. Great list! This is one of those that could go on and on, I suppose...

  2. Ooh, great picks! Persuasion is probably my favorite Jane Austen, and I love Anne of Green Gables!

  3. Bookshelf Monstrosity, very true! I know I've left some off.

    Dana, me too (obviously)!

  4. Ooh, so many good ones on your list! Blue Castle! North & South! some Jane Austen and Georgette Heyer! What a wonderful list! :)

  5. Ah, that is a good list. (None to add, since you have all my favorites anyway!)

  6. Court and Melissa, it makes me want to spend lots of time just reading these old favorites again!


Love it when you comment!
