Top Ten Tuesday: (Five) Favourite Romcoms

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!

    1. Definitely recommend the books too! Though I am nervous to reread To All the Boys before the third film – maybe best to have a distance so I don’t annoy myself comparing the two, haha!

      1. I’m not really the biggest romance reader, so I’m not sure they’d be for me! I tend to watch rom-coms more than read them, I don’t know why but romance works better for me in films than books.

    1. Me too! Even though parts of it are almost surprising how it’s dated, I can’t help love her anyway. I just looked up Sofia Khan and the sample is so fun, I’ll definitely have to check it out further!

  1. I really liked the Netflix version of To All The Boys (haven’t read the book). Bridget Jones- I loved the movie back in the day. I imagine it hasn’t aged though, yeah. 🙂

    The Unhoneymooners looks fun!

    1. I thought TaTB was a really good adaptation! Both books and films definitely stand on their own. I still love Bridget, some of it is just shocking to know it was normal back then, like the workplace harassment – good proof we’ve at least moved slightly forward from those times, though! I loved The Unhoneymooners, definitely recommend it!

  2. Yes! I’ve read and loved all of these! And I enjoy triangles, as well. I think we’re in the minority there, though. 😉 My TTT was over tropes and matching songs, and I did include triangles. ❤
