Let’s talk about love…
Quick post! I could pretend to be literary snob and act all high-and-mighty, but since it’s February, and because sometimes a girl just needs a good old-fashioned romance, whether unashamedly chic-lit, classic or paranormal, or even a love story woven into a broader plot, I decided to share some of my most deeply satisfying romantic reads. Many of my all-time favourites have romantic threads running through their core in some form or another, and the below list includes some of my personal favourites, but I would love to hear yours (pun intended).
- Pride & Prejudice (Jane Austen)
- Jane Eyre (Charlotte Bronte)
- The Princess Bride (William Goldman)
- A Suitable Boy (Vikram Seth)
- The Guernsey Literary & Potato Peel Pie Society (Mary Ann Shaffer)
- Gone with the Wind (Margaret Mitchell)
- One Day (David Nicholls)
- A Tale of Two Cities (Charles Dickens)
- The Twentieth Wife (Indu Sundaresan)
- The House of the Spirits (Isabel Allende)
- The Daughter of Smoke and Bone Trilogy (Laini Taylor)
- The Fault in Our Stars (John Green)
- Sashenka (Simon Sebag Montefiore)
- The House of Special Purpose (John Boyne)
- North and South (Elizabeth Gaskell)
Hi Pinks ,
How are you ?.
Loved this post …….although surprised not to see “Love in the Time of Cholera”
Gabriel Garcia Marquez on your list .
Hi Priti Mami! I remember loving Love in the Time of Cholera when I first read it, and then somehow when I revisited it last year, I completely changed my mind! You may actually be interested in that review…https://lookybookyblog.com/2017/05/22/love-in-the-time-of-cholera-gabriel-garcia-marquez/
