Love-ly reading

Love-ly reading

No matter your Valentine's plans, a good book can always transport you to a love nest... by

1. Pride and Prejudice

by Jane Austen
A classic novel which will stand the test of time, Pride and Prejudice reminds us to always be open to love, and that you often find it where you least expect it.

2. The Fault In Our Stars

by John Green

If you sobbed through the 2014 film adaptation, you'll howl through the book, which tells a raw, funny and heartfelt story of young love and of coming-of-age in a cruel and relentless world.

3. Me Before You

by Jojo Moyes
It's funny how a book that makes you cry is so often linked to romance and love, and that's perhaps because, certainly in the case of Me Before You, we are so invested in that love, and the real, human way in which it is presented.

4. Wuthering Heights

by Emily Brontë
So on one hand, you have the kind of classic like Pride and Prejudice, but then you've also got the gothic Wuthering Heights, where romance is less a diatribe of love with a bouquet and more the digging up of one's lover's grave... Each to their own? There's no denying the intensity of feeling between these characters, that's for sure.

5. Everything I Know About Love

by Dolly Alderton
You don't need to be reading fiction to get your love-fix, and Dolly Alderton knows a thing or two about love. That is, of both the romantic type and of the heartwarming friendships which carry us through life. Alderton shows us just how powerful love is, even without the romance and the chocolates.

6. Normal People

by Sally Rooney
If being longlisted for the Booker Prize at just 27 years old didn't already have Sally Rooney's Normal People on the map as a heart-wrenching tale of love and friendship, then the BBC adaptation probably did the trick. Read it. You'll love it.
