Created by and with thanks to That Artsy Reader! Today is a Valentine’s Day/Love Freebie, which is the perfect excuse to broadcast the fact that I am an incurable romantic. Always have been. I had my first crush at five years old, and I haven’t stopped being insufferably, melodramatically, head over heels for a love story since. 😂 Here are some of my favourites!
1. To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han
I love a love triangle, and I love both sides of this one, because Jenny makes them both so CUTE AND FLUFFY. (But Team Peter K., obviously.)
2. Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins
If there’s a more perfect YA romance, I have not read it. I swoon.
3. The Unhoneymooners by Christina Lauren
This is the book that sparked my desperate need to read all of the romances. I adored it.
4. Bridget Jones’s Diary by Helen Fielding
Okay, to my recent surprise, there are a lot of parts of this book (and the films) that wouldn’t fly today. But they also struck SUCH a chord with so many people, because Helen nails that part of so many of us who got suckered in by a Daniel, and dreamed of a Mark–and that is why this is a sticker.
5. Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
And finally, ending strong: the ultimate, the last say in romcoms. Thank you, Jane Austen, from the entire world!
What’s your favourite romcom–or who’s your OTP?
