Julia Quinn - Delighfully Funny Romances

Julia Quinn's regency romances are just like all romance novels - girls meets guy, some plot in between, and they end up happily ever after. But, unlike most romance novels, Julia Quinn's are bloody funny. I've laughed out loud countless times while reading her books.

Here's an excerpt  from Ten Things I Love About You

Annabel had heard the hearts-dropping-to-the-stomach expression before, and she'd said it, too, but this was the first time she actually understood it. Her entire body felt wrong, as if her heart was in her stomach and her lungs were in her ears, and her brain was somewhere east of France.
And here's a funny one-liner.

Any sane person would flee in such a situation, and probably half of the mad ones, as well.

I heart Julia Quinn!

50 Book Goal : Seventeen

I am going absolutely crazy over Julia Quinn. Her regency romances are so good (and funny).
I've never read her before this year, and now I've just finished a seventh book.

12) Hector and the Search for Happiness by Francois Lelord
13) Life Coach by Pam Richardson
14) Minx by Julia Quinn
15) To Catch a Heiress by Julia Quinn
16) The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman
17) To Sir Philip, With Love by Julia Quinn

And.. I've got more of her books this weekend, so it's gonna be a Julia Quinn marathon for the next few months!
