    Fav HEA books? I often just pick up any book by a particular author. Lisa Kleypas' historical romances are just the thing for an overburdened mind, as are Susan Elizabeth Phillips' contemporaries. For palate cleansing, I like a happy story that doesn't simultaneously insult my intelligence--good writing is a must!

  3. My favorite palate cleanser would have to be The Anything Box or Holding Wonder by Zenna Henderson.

  5. My favorite light-hearted book? I'm going with either Ella Enchanted by Gail Carson Levine or Pride & Prejudice by Jane Austen. They both make me laugh through the writing & characters. : ) But I'm always so satisfied when the MCs end up together - as they should! ; )

  8. I loooooove HEA books! That's why I read so many historical romances :) I'm not sure if the Gossip Girl series counts as having a happy ending but they sure are a guilty pleasure!!

    Thanks for the contest, I love the Simon romantic comedies :)

    For a cleanser I always revert back to the classics...I'm a huge Austen fan so Pride and Prejudice is always my go to...I read it at least once a year!

  10. My cleansing book would probably have to be Confessions of a Shopaholic by Sophie Kinsella. It just makes me laugh and smile:)

  11. Generally when I'm looking for light reading I pick up something horror or fantasy...something I don't really have to think about...a good example would be anything by Richard Laymon or perhaps a Marvel prose novel.

    Old(ish) but still kind of new(ish) follower so that gets me an extra 1.5 entries?!? :)

  18. Off the top of my head, I'd have to say Never Cry Werewolf by Heather Davis, it's cute and a really light read, with the sweetest ending possible, although it does leave the way open for a sequel, so there's a few loose ends ... :)

  19. My favorite HEA book (currently b/c it's always changing) is Perfect Chemistry. I just have it on the brain, but it's fabulous. Also, anything by Jennifer Echols puts a smile on my face. I love those books that make you go "AWWWW." :)
