love stories
posted by soe 2:09 am

In honor of the upcoming Valentine’s Day holiday and to combat my continuing low mood, I’m looking for some suggestions of love stories to read.

Before you hop down to the comments, let me clarify: I want a book that leaves you smiling at the end. Think Rainbow Rowell, Jane Austen, or Gayle Forman. (I’m already thinking David Levithan and Stephanie Perkins.)

The biggest caveat is that I don’t want a tragedy. A little sadness is okay, so long as the overall tone is a positive one. (Think The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society, for example, over Code Name Verity.)

Major Pettigrew’s Last Stand
Blue Castle is always good for a reread.

Wow, those two recommendations are excellent! Have you read Hardy’s A Pair of Blue Eyes? So delightful, and not tragic (I know! And yet it’s Hardy!)
