Lists, Top Ten

Top Ten Tuesday: Perfect books for Valentine’s Day

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together. This week’s topic is all about Valentine’s Day!

Kayla does not read (or enjoy) many romance novels, so this list was a joint effort.

10. A Deal with the Elf King

You want a steamy YA romance for Valentine’s Day? Here it is. Read it. You won’t regret it.

Buy A Deal with the Elf King (Married to Magic)

9. A Season Beyond a Kiss

Becky says that Kathleen Woodiwiss’s historical romance novels are the best she’s ever read, and they will all be featured on this list.

Buy A Season Beyond A Kiss (Birmingham Book 2)

8. (Im)Perfectly Happy

Kayla had to be a bit of a rebel here. Not all love stories have to be about “romantic love.” Familial love and friendship are just as important (if not more important), and worth celebrating. This book features some romantic love, but the focus is the friendship between four college friends. Is there some romance in this book? Sure, but we’re here for that beautiful friendship.

Buy ImPerfectly Happy

7. The Flame and the Flower

Heather Simmons and Captain Brandon Birmingham are a breath-taking couple. This one will get your blood pumping.

Buy The Flame and the Flower (Birmingham Book 1)

6. Ashes in the Wind

A “tale of love in the face of dishonor.” Why wouldn’t you want to read that?

Buy Ashes in the Wind (The Ashes Book 6)

5. Dearest Josephine

The most genuine YA love story Kayla has ever read.

Buy Dearest Josephine

4. Roman and Jewel

A Hamilton-style remix of the classic love story…sign me up!

Buy Roman and Jewel

3. The Wolf and the Dove

Normans, Saxons, and steamy romance. Who could resist?

Buy The Wolf and the Dove

2. Gone with the Wind

This one is a staple. I mean, I don’t think this list could exist without Rhett and Scarlet.

Buy Gone With the Wind

1. Pride and Prejudice

You really need an explanation for this one? No? I didn’t think so.

Buy Pride and Prejudice
