I don't know about you, but I sure do love love.
I've never stopped believing in falling in love, fairy tales, and happily ever afters.
So, it should be no surprise that I read a lot of romance novels and fall head over heels for all the love stories that I read about. In honor of Valentine's Day I'm sharing some of my favorite romance novels and why they are easy to fall in love with. Plus - a special bonus - my two best friends, Amanda and Theresa, are joining me and sharing their favorites too!
All the Bright Places by Jennifer Niven
Goodreads || Amazon
This book means a lot to me, if you remember from my book review. Violet and Finch have such a sweet romance that it's hard not to appreciate it. They find each other when they both seem completely lost, and in each other they find more of themselves. It's a heartbreaking story that is sure to make you cry, but such a beautiful one.
If I Stay by Gayle Forman
Mia and Adam's relationship is no way perfect, however I believe they are perfect together. They bring the best out of each other regardless of their differences. You can clearly tell how devoted and in love Adam is with Mia, in the worst case scenario he is right by her side.
The Selection Series by Kiera Cass
Goodreads || Amazon
This series is one epic fairy tale romance. There are three books in the original series, and The One has to be my favorite out of the bunch. America and Maxon are completely different in many ways, but immediately you can see how they bring out the best in each other. It was adorable to see them become friends to falling in love with one another, and that's why they are one of my favorite couples in YA.
Come Back to Me by Mila Gray
Come Back to Me starts off with already breaking our hearts with learning one of Jessa's loved ones has died, it's either her brother Riley or her boyfriend Kit. But quickly we are brought back to 3 months before the accident. Jessa and Kit's love story revolves quickly, but they have known and liked each other for years without saying anything to each other. Their love for each other is so deeply rooted it's hard not to quickly fall in love with them. There were a couple of steamy scenes, which I thought weren't too heavy.
If you love a quick little love story that tugs at your heart then give Come Back to Me a try.
Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell
Cath and Levi.. Since the day they met Levi always went above and beyond for Cath, little things like bringing her coffee, walking her home from class at night and listening to her read fan fiction for hours made me see just how much he cares for her. She may not have wanted it at first but I believe they were meant to be since day one.
Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins
This is the perfect weekend read that has a very swoon worthy romance within! I absolutely adored Anna and St. Clair's romance - they were very adorkable! I loved seeing their blooming friendship turn into so much more. This book perfectly captures the awkward stages of falling for your best friend, and how it feels to find love for the very first time.
