Last year, I wrote about some favorite love stories to indulge in around Valentine’s Day. This year, I wanted to provide some more – and what could serve as a more perfect Tuesday Pick-Me-Up anyways?
I dug back into my reading archives for some of these picks, but they are nonetheless great choices. Take a look to see if you should add any to your TBR list.
Eligible by Curtis Sittenfeld – I know that I’ve blogged about this book before, but it is a great love story and is a perfect Valentine’s Day read. I am a huge Sittenfeld fan and love her writing style, and more than that I love the way she develops characters. It is impossible not to become invested in the storylines of the characters within Eligible, and you’ll be wishing for more at the end of the novel.
Beautiful Day by Elin Hilderbrand – I read this book a few years ago and loved it (I mean, I love all of Elin’s books, so this was no exception…but still). This book centers around a wedding, and what could be more romantic than that? This book is told from rotating points of view and really gets you involved with the entire family’s troubles, triumphs, and feelings – which I loved. This book has stuck with me and I definitely think it’s worth the read, especially if you’re looking for something light.
The One & Only by Emily Giffin – this is one of my favorite Emily Giffin books. It is definitely a “fluffy” read, but I thought it was a great story. It depicts the love story of a football coach in a Texas town and a gal that he’s known for quite some time. I devoured this book when it first came out and I thought the story was sweet and unpredictable.
Remember Me? by Sophie Kinsella – so I read this a seriously long time ago, but I still think back on it as a great love story – so that means something, right?! I like Sophie Kinsella books for what they are – something fun, humorous, and entertaining to read when you’re in the mood for something light. This book is a stand alone and is a hilarious story of a woman who is in a car accident and wakes up devoid of years worth of memories. She has a new life, including a gorgeous new husband, that she can’t remember anything about. Rebuilding her life and mind from there proves to be quite a journey, and it’s one you’ll enjoy reading about.
Those are just a few favorites – but there are so many there to choose from! I can’t think of many better ways to celebrate than diving into a good story, to be honest. I also have a few more love stories to read on my list – such as Emma by Alexander McCall Smith, The Royal We by Heather Cocks, and The One that Got Away by Bethany Chase.
