All About Romance: Best Romantic Books

Updated on January 30, 2012

Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen

A classic, and well worth your time. Five sisters, two worthy gentlemen. Who can resist the noble Fitzwilliam Darcy? The only thing that can change his standoffish nature is stubborn and independent-minded Elizabeth Bennet. You can never get tired of their silly mutual attempt to resist love.

Paradise by Judith McNaught

This one is an easy, mindless romance novel you will not be able to put down; it's complete with tantalizing love scenes, a rough around the edges hero, and a likable heroine. She's high society, sheltered, naive girl; he's a self-made, a little bit too street-smart of man with a perfect chiseled figure. They fall head over heels in love with each other after an "accidental" night of passion, but family interferes, and voila - the couple will have to work out a few miscommunication errors out, before their love can prevail. Very predictable, yet deliciously enticing.

Horns by Joe Hill

Neither the cover nor the description reads like a romance novel, but you will have to trust me when I tell you that it is. Everyone believes he got away with murdering his girl, but you, the reader, know better. He receives a special "gift" of horns, which allows him to hear the thoughts of other people around him. You will get lost in the world of the beautiful and tragic love story before you. The mystery gets wrapped into a heartbreaking story. This book comes with a bonus: not only does it have a great premise, but it is very well written and laugh out loud funny. You will not be embarrassed to admit that you read this novel, and you will be recommending it to your friends and relatives way before you will be done reading it.

Mr. Maybe by Jane Green

This is another quick read. Chick lit romance novel set in modern days. What's a girl to do: should she pick safety and security or passion and butterflies in the stomach? Absolutely hilarious. Make sure you get another copy for a girlfriend, as you will want to talk about it all the while you are reading, and as soon as you are done.

Time Traveler's Wife by Audrey Niffenegger

If you missed the hype when this book first came out, then get on with the program! It had excellent reviews for a reason. Genetic defect forces him to travel back and forth in time. Consequently, it allows him to meet the girl he falls in love with way before they met. I hated some parts of this book, but I do not regret one bit reading it. I felt the characters all around me, and their love challenged by time continuum is out of this world. Read it.
