Happy Valentine's Day! If you've got a significant other - enjoy the romance! And, if you're single, do something fun - like watch horror movies or be really silly, wear red, and celebrate by hanging out with your friends! I always remember being a kid and making Valentine's Day boxes and writing cards for the other kids in class - it was just a fun holiday...so make it fun! Okay, so I'm a romantic and Valentine's Day is all about that - sigh, swoon, and let mushy gushyness ensue! :)
As for me...I got married on Valentine's Day...so I'll be celebrating a wedding anniversary!!!! Woo-hoo!
On that note, here are my favorite romances!!!! I love reading romances and some of my list is romances in books that aren't romances because I think those books were just as fun to read to see how the romances turned out even if they were originally something else.
The full list of my Top 10 Favorite Romances is on my blog Writer Girl in LA! Top 10 Tuesday is an internet meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish and I try to participate every Tuesday!
Here are my top 3 favorite romances:
1. Pride & Prejudice by Jane Austen - It's a classic romance. Who doesn't swoon at the chemistry between Lizzie and Mr. Darcy!!!!
2. The Host by Stephanie Meyer - This wouldn't necessarily make my true top 10 romances list, but I'm adding it here because I thought the romance was truly fascinating. Two characters in the same body and two men who are in love with each of them! FASCINATING romance idea!
3. Anne Shirley and Gilbert Blythe from The Anne of Green Gables Books by Lucy Maude Montgomery - I fell for this romance the moment Gilbert called Anne carrots and she smashed a slate over his head. It took them a long time to get together, but it always felt like such a real romance to me - sometimes it's hard to forget someone's faults and it's easy to be jealous and sometimes friendship and romance get a little intermixed. I love their story!
That's only 3 of my 10! To see the rest check out the full post on my blog Writer Girl in LA: Top 10 Favorite Romances!
