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).

  1. Pride & Prejudice (Jane Austen)
  2. Jane Eyre (Charlotte Bronte)
  3. The Princess Bride (William Goldman)
  4. A Suitable Boy (Vikram Seth)
  5. The Guernsey Literary & Potato Peel Pie Society (Mary Ann Shaffer)
  6. Gone with the Wind (Margaret Mitchell)
  7. One Day (David Nicholls)
  8. A Tale of Two Cities (Charles Dickens)
  9. The Twentieth Wife (Indu Sundaresan)
  10. The House of the Spirits (Isabel Allende)
  11. The Daughter of Smoke and Bone Trilogy (Laini Taylor)
  12. The Fault in Our Stars (John Green)
  13. Sashenka (Simon Sebag Montefiore)
  14. The House of Special Purpose (John Boyne)
  15. North and South (Elizabeth Gaskell)

About LookyBooky

I'm a compulsive reader always in search of new adventures. I love learning through travel and seeing the world through my camera lens. The books are ALWAYS better than the movies. I enjoy nothing more than a good book argument so feel free to disagree with me - it might lead to a fun conversation!
