OMG, Het!

Yesterday, I re-read one of my old highschool het romance novels by Linda Howard and ended up scouring the web for oldies.

The sad thing is that most of the novels are back in asia collecting dust on the shelves at home, or given away to friends. So after looking through certain lj comms, torrents and the magic of google (the title and author in quotes + the word download) I managed to find pretty much all the books I was looking for in ebook format \o/. They include:

  • Mirror Image by Sandra Brown
  • Remember When by Judith McNaught
  • A few books by Jude Deveraux, Julie Garwood, Johanna Lindsey and Judith McNaught
Quite sure I'll be back to reading fantasy again next week though :)

In any case, reading the blurbs of the Johanna Lindsey novels had me cringing in horror. How on earth did I ever get past them the first time around? Oh wait, my sister had been reading them first >_> Still remember sneaking the books around when I was 12 or 13.

Now when I go back home for the hols, its usually yaoi and slash I'm sneaking around and its always hidden in a window or tab on the computer XD


Most unexpected post ever,Y/Y?
No judging at all. I firmly believe that Susan Elizabeth Philips' trashy novels are what got me through the time in the hospital with my dad. There's something deliciously wonderful about sinking into a trashy novel that hits every chord. ♥ I've got a shit tonne of ebooks, so if you're ever interested in something different or new, let me know and I'll send them over. :D:D:D
OMG Johanna Lindsey was like total crack to my thirteen year old brain. XD I still blame most of my innocent misconceptions about sex and how orgasms work from reading her books. *snickers* I also think that her books are half the reason that rape in yaoi doesn't freak me out as much as I think it should because the line was often very blurry between con and non-con in her books from what I remember reading. XD

Until You was my fav of McNaught's. I think I've read it at least five times. I'll have to check out that one though, because it looks intriguing. ^_^

It's nostalgic to reread some of the romance books that got me through high school. And it's fun to see how your perspective has changed on things since. ;3
