The first book I want to talk to you about is my all-time favourite love story. Perfect Chemistry - Simone Elkeles, follows a rich white girl who falls for a poor, gang member from the 'rough' side of town. Opposites attract right? Apparently so.
This book is honestly the best book I've ever read (bare in mind I did read this in like year 9 which was around... oh 7 years ago) but my memory never fails me. I know if I were to read it now, which actually I might do, it will still be just as amazing as the first time.
I love that it's not just a fluffy, gooey insta-love type of book, there's so many other factors that come into play and it can be a little dark and dangerous at times. But I love the mix. It's perfect. Definitely check this book out, you won't regret it!
Next on the list is, Ugly Love - Colleen Hoover. I'm a big, big, big fan of heartbreak and drama in my romance novels. I love everything that comes with... love and we all know it's not an easy ride. This is the perfect example, it's a great "Gosh, imagine how much worse things could be for me" type of read. It really makes you re-evaluate everything. This is more of a New Adult book and there's a ton of sex and I'm sure some foul language, as well as distressing scenes so you might want to watch out for that. Am I selling it to you yet?
If you've been waiting for the ultra cute book to come, this is it. Anna and the French Kiss - Stephanie Perkins is the ultimate fluffy romance. I mean, yeah it's got it's issues. Like the fact our main character's love interest has a girlfriend but you know
These are in no particular order by the way.
The penultimate book that I've chosen for you is... The Silver Linings Playbook - Matthew Quick. I don't know why but I always associate this book (and movie) with Valentine's Day. It's not your typical lovey-dovey romance, but it's sure as hell an amazing story. I think this is the least romantic book of them all, and it's purely in here because of the associations I have with it. But it is really, really, super, cute.
There's not a lot I can say about this. I claimed (in my review) that this was my new favourite book, and I still feel exactly the same.
If you can't be bothered with the book then the movie is just as good. I love the movie. It may be my favourite movie. Seriously. I just love this.
So I got a little off-track with the Silver Linings Playbook, but now I'm back, sipping my tea and trying to think of the final book to add. Okay. I'm ready.
The final book is Emmy & Oliver - Robin Benway. This is more of a coming-of-age type of novel, but it's still really enjoyable. I can't believe I've pretty much already past that time in my life. God I'm old.
So there ya have it guys! Are there any books you think should have been on this list? Let me know! I'd love to find more cutesy, romance reads.
