A Romance Novel

That’s right, it’s Valentine’s Day this week! So what better way to celebrate than talking about our favourite romance novels?

I own way way too many. It’s such an easy genre to read, I find myself reading too much of it. So I’ve narrowed it down to my top three.


If you’ve been on here a while, you’ll know how stupidly in love I am with Jamie from the Outlander series. And a huge part of that is the way he treats his Sassenach, Claire. Really, it’s just his Jamie-ness that makes me love this book.

Next is Vampire Academy. The entire series, even though I just featured the first one. Rose is beaten only be Celaena in bad-ass-ness, and Dimitri is my favourite Russian of all time. Together, they make a pair you’d be terrified to cross in the street, yet seem to be so sweet to each other…

Lastly, a predictable choice – The Fault In Our Stars. It takes a lot for a book or movie to make me cry, and this book had me bawling like a baby. I think that’s because the love between them was so strong, even as teenagers. I plan to re-read this soon actually, so you can look forward to a review on that!

As per usual, let me know your thoughts on the books I’ve chosen! And don’t forget to add your post to the linky. Oh, and also appreciate my pink Valentine’s font right now πŸ˜›



I was a book blogger for a while, and I now blog about every little thing in life I can think of. Bear with me while I try all these new posts out... I'm a New Zealand teen who gets angry about the world (but not angry enough for tumblr). I like to capture the world through photos and words, and read in all the moments in nz-squadbetween. I have an overwhelming desire to see every corner of the world I possibly can, and hug the people I love in all those corners. I can't do make up to save myself, and you're more likely to find me buying matching stationary than matching clothes. My nerd hobbies include a new found love of the Avengers, reading YA, watching Game of Thrones, How I Met Your Mother, and every vlogger I can find, and being the last person on the music bandwagons. I have big plans for the rest of my life, including university, teaching, travelling, and having an army of puppies. I plan to blog every second of it!
