we all need a little bit of love

Somehow in today’s world we can sometimes scoff and repulse love and acts of intimacy. We can be cynical, judgemental and arrogant to those who are completely enwrapped in it. I understand, seeing others hold hands and be obsessed with one another isn’t always fun, and you can guarantee I know this as I’m 100% single too. I’ve done it, my hand is up and I’m guilty. I’ve done the “EW” at people who post ‘appreciation boyfriend and girlfriend posts’, and the “nope, I don’t need no man” when mum asks who I’m bringing to nanas christmas dinner. And I am not saying that you must have a partner, heck – being single is a shit load of fun and brings a whole other level of freedom and mystery. But, lets not diminish that you can still be independant, free and completely yourself, with somebody else too. And so to celebrate those who are in love, and those who aren’t but still open their hearts up to it, I’ve made a personal booklist of some must-read romance novels. Whether it’s kissing in the rain, running through the airport or standing outside throwing pebbles to their window, we all love a good love story.

There are so many books that I have read and never recorded. So here are *some* of my favourites (for the ones that I can remember at least) :

  • One Day – By David Nichols
  • The Sky Is Everywhere – Jandy Nelson
  • Elanor & Park – Rainbow Rowell
  • Jane Eyre – Jane Austen
  • Looking for Alaska – John Green
  • The Fault in Our Stars – John Green
  • Just a Girl, Standing in Front of a Boy – Lucy-Ann Holmes
  • Why we broke up – Daniel Handler
  • Girl Saves Boy – Steph Bowe
  • A Straight Line to My Heart – Bill Condon
  • The Great Gatsby – F. Scott Fitzgerald
  • The Unwritten Rule – Elizabeth Scott
  • Me, Penelope: Jahn-Clough
