Happy Valentine’s Day friends! I know some people may hate this “holiday”, but I think it is loads of fun. Especially when you celebrate with friends and sending them dorky Valentine’s day cards (some of my poor friends have already been the recipients of these cards this year). Anyway, it’s a fun day to celebrate all things LOVEY DOVEY and what’s not to love about that? So to celebrate on the blog I’m talking bout my favorite love stories. Be sure to chime in and share yours!
1. Daughter of the Forest by Juliet Marillier
This is definitely a slow burn romance, but those are my favorite, so this definitely makes the list!
2. The All Souls Trilogy by Deborah Harkness
Matthew (hell yes to a sexy vampire!) is one of my all-time favorite book boyfriends. You should definitely read this series if you haven’t yet!
3. The Fault in Our Stars by John Green
Yes, you’re heart is going to be ripped out of your chest and stomped on, but reading this book is worth it.
4. Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte
A classic love story. It’s easily one of my favorite books AND one of my favorite love stories (sorry Pride and Prejudice, you’re good, but Jane Eyre has you beat in my world).
5. Warm Bodies by Isaac Marion
I am going to be honest, I feel like a humongous dork putting this book on the list (especially after something classy like Jane Eyre)… but I can’t deny how much I loved this book. I actually saw the movie first and was so obsessed with it I had to read the book ASAP. I LOVED this zombie story! LOVED IT! In fact, maybe I should do a re-read and officially review it soon…
6. The Bronze Horseman by Paullina Simons
DUH this book had to be on the list. I freaking LOVED it and called it one of my favorite love stories of all time! See my rave review here.
7. Twilight by Stephanie Meyer
I would be straight up lying to myself (and all of you) if I didn’t put this one on my list. Yes, I get why people hate this book. But I DON’T. I was obsessed with it back when they were all coming out and even today I’m not allowed to re-read it, because it’s one of the very few books that will results in me not moving from the couch until I have finished it. I loved the other ones, too, but Twilight always will be my favorite.
What are some of your favorite love stories? Or, if you hate them, which do you hate the most!?
