If you, like me, are having a Valentine-less day, here’s a list of heart-warming and romantic reads that will put you in the Valentine’s Day mindset.
The Lover’s Dictionary by David Levithan. True, I haven’t read this one in its entirety but I almost snatched this one up as a Valentine’s Day present for myself because Levithan just captures what love is truly like in a series of vignettes in the form of a dictionary. The first half, which is what I read while waiting for a friend at Barnes and Noble, was utterly charming and sweet. The best part about it is that it’s universal. Told in first person, the unnamed protagonist can truly be anyone.
For fans of adult historical romances, my favorite would have to be Whitney, My Love by Judith McNaught. It is a staggeringly long book, but by the end of it I was craving for even more. No one knows how to create a better love story than McNaught.
As for YA, I was seriously reconsidering rereading Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins because, not only is it that good, but it truly captures what it is like to be in love as a teen. Anna and St. Claire make an awfully cute couple. I’ve gushed so many times about this book recently so you just have to take my word for it.
