Whether you’re in a relationship or you’re not, Valentine’s Day is upon us and filled with couples celebrating. I’m neither for or against Valentine’s Day personally, I’m not bitter nor am I completely loved up with the person I’m with on just one day of the year. But no matter what your opinion is on the topic, most girls love a good romance novel, and the best time to dive in to a new love story is obviously Valentine’s Day! Here’s a list of books that you should pick up today to get you in a Valentines mood!
Billy and Me by Giovanna Fletcher
I think I’ve added this to every recommendations lit I’ve ever written for books, just because it’s so bloody good. It’s such a versatile read, but Valentine’s Day is probably no better holiday then to read this wonderful, funny romance novel on. Billy and Me follows Sophie, a village girl who works in a bakery with a very dull and boring life. Until Billy, a very famous actor comes in for a cuppa anyway. Sophie and Billy become inseparable and obviously with his busy life style, that’s going to become a problem.
The Notebook by Nicholas Sparks
Most females (and let’s face it, a lot of guys) have indulged in the Notebook while it’s been on the TV. However not many people have delved in to the novel. When Noah Calhoun returns from World War Two, he is haunted by images of a beautiful girl he met fourteen years previously. Distant memories suddenly start to slide in to reality, and as a romance novel you might be able to guess what happens next.
The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer By Michelle Hodkin
If you’re looking for something a little more Young Adult with a swoon-worthy boyfriend, I’d pick up one of the Mara Dyer trilogy novels. Noah Shaw is the ultimate cutesy, protective, want-to-squeeze-his-little-face boyfriend and it will guarantee to make you swoon your way through the day.
One Day by David Nicholls
To me One Day is one of the unlimited romance novels. Not only does it show undying love in a romantic sense but also undying love within a friendship. Emma and Dexter have known each other since an awkward night in Uni left them sharing a bed. Since then they have met at least once a year (when time has allowed) to spend some time together. They’re best friends and end up as best friends who love each other. But that kind of thing never runs smoothly in fiction does it?
It’s Called A Breakup Because It’s Broken by Greg Behrendt
If you’re completely against Valentine’s Day for some kind of reason, maybe try It’s Called A Breakup Because It’s Broken. This book helps you purely to get up and move on with any love problems that have happened in the past. If you really don’t feel like celebrating Valentine’s Day, pick up this and truly let go of all the ex’s you don’t even want to mention anymore!
No matter how you’re spending Valentine’s Day, make sure you let someone you love know that you do. It doesn’t have to be a romantic partner, it can be a family member or friends. Valentine ’s Day is about love and only that. If you’re not spending Valentine’s Day with anyone it’s truly a great excuse to sit and read a really good book with some swoon-worthy characters!
