Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme sponsored by The Broke and Bookish. This week’s list is all about books that makes us swoon! Because Valentine’s Day is coming up, this week’s topic is super appropriate. Let the literary love fest commence!
1. Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë- The story of Jane and Edward Rochester’s slowly growing love is so passionate yet so scandalous. This novel made me fall in love with literature, and it gives us regular gals hope to find love.
2. Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen- DARCY. Need I say more?
3. Wuthering Heights by Emily Brontë- Well it’s definately no secret those Brontë know how to write great romance novels. Not only did the lip quivering novel make me swoon, but I might have shed a slight tear. Heathcliff and Catherine’s tragic tale makes you feel all sorts of emotions. A classic worth reading.
4. The Age of Innocence by Edith Wharton-This story about is about how love grows over time, and Wharton’s writing style makes for a juicy love story between the Newland Archer and the infamous Countess Ellen Olenska.
5. The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern-This book’s beauty swept me away. Beautiful beautiful prose and an embedded love story that is a masterpiece. The Night Circus is a must read.
6. The Notebook by Nicholas Sparks-Sure we’ve all seen the film, BUT THE BOOK IS SO MUCH BETTER! Swoon swoon swoon.
7. New Moon by Stephanie Meyer– I know I know, a Twilight book. But during the time of its release, this book gained some major points with it’s…“biting” love triangle between Edward, Bella, and Jacob.
8. Gone With the Wind by Margaret Mitchell– I haven’t read this novel in years it seems like, but it’s beautiful writing and warming story of Scarlett O’ Hara and Rhett Butler has resonated deep within me. This novel is unforgettable and another must read classic.
9. The Fault in Our Stars by John Green-This book has made it on the list once again, and I think we all know why.
10. The History of Love by Nicole Krauss– A book brings together two past lovers Leo and Alma. Their story takes place over 60 years after they find each other in New York. Krauss strings together words wonderfully, and you’ll find yourself rereading lines over and over again.
