RT's Recommended Reads Index
There's nothing quite like the joy of getting lost in a good book. But sometimes it's easy for a good book to get lost in the shuffle. Believe us, you aren't alone in your frustration. We review over 3,000 books a year and there's simply no easy way to stay on top of all the great stories that should be in our TBR piles. However, to help you make sure that you are enjoying all the best books of the year, we've put together a comprehensive list of suggested reading.
Or you can also view the list of RT's All-Time Favorites, which was compiled between 1982 — 2008, and features all of the RT reviewers' favorites and every book that recieved an RT 4 1/2 star Top Pick! Gold rating from 2001 - 2008.
Romance readers will want to check out the list of RT All-Time Classics. This list compiles all of the books that were awarded the 5-star rating. The rating is reserved for very rare and special books that transcend the boundaries of the romance genre. This rating was only given out by RT's senior reviewer Melinda Helfer. (When other reviewers wanted to give out the review, it would have to be approved by Melinda.) When Melinda passed away in August 2000, the 5-star rating was retired in her honor and these books became RT's All-Time Classics.
