“Romance is the glamour which turns the task of everyday life into a golden haze.”
And there are so many people who live in that haze. Especially the ones who are in love with the idea of love. Reading is another thing that draws a person in and opens a brand new world every time a new book is picked. Romance as a genre has never gone out of style ever since the beginning of time and neither has reading.
So, here’s a list of five books you should read if you are a hopeless romantic.
1). Me Before You by Jojo Moyes
Me Before You is a treat for a romantic soul. You will not only fall in love with the story but also with the colourful yet monotonous life of Louisa as she finds a new meaning to it. This new perspective is introduced to her by the quadriplegic patient she was hired to nurse, William Traynor. Will had lived his life to the fullest and enjoyed every moment of it until he met with an accident which leaves him in a wheelchair for life.
As you read this book, it will swallow you up. You will laugh with it and you will cry with it. Also, keep a box of tissue handy when you read this one.
2). The Fault In Our Stars by John Green
Well, who wouldn’t have heard of this one. The Fault In Our Stars is a story of two cancer patients who fall in love when they least expect it. They try to live as much as they can in the limited time that they have.
This one is a total page turner and will leave you in a pool of your tears for days.
3). The Wedding by Nicholas Sparks
The Wedding is one of the many underrated romance novels. It is the sequel to ‘The Notebook’, which in itself is a romantic delight. The Wedding is not the continuation of Noah and Allie’s story. It is the story of their daughter, Jane, who after almost thirty years of her marriage realizes that she is falling out of love with her husband, Wilson.
This book does not tell the story of two people falling in love. It tells the story of two souls who find each other again.
4). After Series by Anna Todd
This Wattpad fanfiction took no time in becoming the International bestseller. This One Direction fanfiction with Harry Styles as the male protagonist, has been popular since its Wattpad days, since there was no Hardin Scott. Only Harry Styles.
This book is a whirlpool of emotions. It shows that no matter how wrong two people may seem for each other, if they are truly in love and ready to fight for each other, their love will prevail. This one is, most definitely, a must read.
5). Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte
This classic masterpiece is not only an epic story of love, but also of betrayal, revenge and envy. It shows how the life of two people can affect the lives of those close to them if they are not ready to fight for each other. No list romance books could ever be complete without it.
So, there it is. Go ahead and start reading them all or the ones you haven’t read yet. Or simply reread your favourite if you have already read them all.
