posted by soe 1:35 am

This week’s Top Ten Tuesday post from That Artsy Reader Girl invites us to share any topic we’d like related to “love” in honor of Valentine’s Day. I thought I’d share the 11 books I have rated with four or five stars in Goodreads with some form of the word in the title:

  1. The History of Love by Nicole Krauss
  2. Love Is a Mix Tape by Rob Sheffield
  3. Cry, the Beloved Country by Alan Paton
  4. Love, Rosie by Cecelia Ahern
  5. Beloved by Toni Morrison
  6. Love That Dog by Sharon Creech
  7. My True Love Gave To Me, edited by Stephanie Perkins
  8. Book Love by Debbie Tung
  9. The Woman Who Smashed Codes: A True Story of Love, Spies, and the Unlikely Heroine who Outwitted America’s Enemies by Jason Fagone
  10. Modern Lovers by Emma Straub
  11. The Game of Love and Death by Martha Brockenbrough

That’s out of 46 books with “love” in the title.

Interestingly, it’s a pretty balanced list: three books by guys, two nonfiction titles, one book of poetry, one collection of comics, one collection of short stories, two classics, and three books aimed at kids or young adults.

How about you? What “love” books have you loved?

What a nice list! Lots of people did similar stuff this week. I had no idea so many books have the word love in their titles.

My TTT .

Great list! I love, Love Rosie! One of my favourite books of all time. Such a slow burn, but so lovely.
