Top Books That Would Make Great Valentine's Day Reads


Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week's Top Ten Tuesday is a Valentine's Day freebie. I decide to showcase my top picks that would make great Vantine's Day reads. Warning for the contemporary overload! The following books are in no particular order.

S T A N D A L O N E S / C O M P A N I O N S


The Start of Me and You by Emery Lord is one of my favorite contemporary romances. I cried at the end of the novel because it is so perfect.


Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins is the perfect contemporary that takes place at a boarding school in City of Light! Who wouldn't want to read a book about love in Paris? Swoon!!


Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins is the second book in the Anna and the French Kiss companion series and it's the perfect companion for Valentine's Day.


Isla and the Happily Ever After by Stephanie Perkins is the third book in the Anna and the French Kiss companion series and you are in for a treat at the end of the novel. It's very swoon worthy!


Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare is a classic about two star-crossed lovers. Read it already? Then it's time for a re-read!


The Fault in Our Stars by John Green is another book I bawled at the ending. It's heartbreaking but the love is real! This is another book that I cried after reading the whole entire book.


Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell is one of my favorite books of all time and it showcases one of my favorite OTPs! You will fall in love with Cath and Levi!


Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell is about two misfits who bond over music on a bus ride. It's a good book about first love.


To All the Boys I've Loved Before by Jenny Han is the perfect read about past crushes and sisterly love.


P.S. I Still Love You by Jenny Han is the sequel to To All the Boys I've Loved Before. I love this one even more than the first one in the duology. It's so cute and sweet, just like Lara Jean. Yes, this can be considered as a series but this novel can be read as a standalone although I highly recommend reading both in the duology.


Simon Vs. The Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli is such a cute book about two pen pals who go to the same school. Simon and Blue are adorable and I love reading their letters to each other.


S E R I E S 


Vampire Academy series by Richelle Mead is definitely full of action, adventure and love! There are definitely plenty of couples to read about.

Bloodlines series by Richelle Mead is a spin off of the Vampire Academy series and showcases my other favorite OTP, Sydney and Adrian!

The Infernal Devices by Cassandra Clare has the only love triangle that I like. Swoon!!! This is also my favorite YA series of all time.

The Sententia series by Cara Bertrand takes place at a boarding school. I love the relationship between Lainey and Carter. And can I say that it takes place in Massachusetts!

Hex Hall series by Rachel Hawkins also takes place at a boarding school and the love between Sophie and Archer is complex for sure!
