Top Ten Tuesday: Love Stories

Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.  This is my first "Top Ten" posting! I'm excited to participate; after all, I make lists FOR EVERYTHING! 

 Top Ten Favorite Love Stories in Literature:

1.  Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen- How could I not include this classic on my list? If you know me, you know how much I love this story; plus, Mr. Darcy is one of my literary boyfriends.

2.  The Vampire Academy series by Richelle Mead- Dimitri and Rose's story is so extremely compelling. If you haven't read this series, you must go out and buy it immediately.  

3.  Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare- It is definitely one of the most romantic stories of all time.

4.  The Mortal Instruments series- Jace and Clary's story has its ups and downs, but it's one of my favorites. I can't wait for the next book in the series!

5.  Jessica's Guide to Dating on the Dark Side by Beth Fantaskey- Lucius and Jessica's relationship is deliciously addicting.

6.  Gone with the Wind by Margaret Mitchell- I love Scarlett O'Hara and Rhett Butler's rocky romance in this classic.

7.  The Truth About Forever by Sarah Dessen- Dessen, in my opinion, is the queen of YA romance and this one is my favorite.

8.  The Notebook by Nicholas Sparks- Yes, I know....people think Sparks is cheesy, but this book had me sobbing.

9.  Emma by Jane Austen- Who doesn't love Mr. Knightley?

10.  Love in the Time of Cholera by Gabriel Garcia Marquez- This book is simply beautiful!

Do you agree with my list? What are your favorite love stories in literature? Let me know what you think!


  1. This sounds like a fun meme! I love your list :) I haven't read Love in the Time of Cholera but I have read the other books you picked. I love Pride and Prejudice, The Vampire Academy series, and Mortal Instruments.

  2. YES! Great list! Sarah Dessen is the queen of YA romance. =D

  3. I sobbed at The Notebook too... EVERY TIME I read it!!I I meant to out Sarah Dessen on my list but I couldn't pick one book and then I forgot! Love in the Time of Cholera is a great title too!

  4. Love your list. So many great books. Emma & PP of course! :)

  5. So many good love stories on this list! I of course adore Lizzie and Mr. Darcy, they're a classic. And Vampire Academy is one of my favorites as are the Mortal Instruments books. Jace makes it pretty difficult not to fall in love with him!

  6. oooh oawesome list!! i have jessica's guide, i just need to find time to read it!

  7. P&P and GWTH also made my list. This is the second time I've seen Love in the Time of Cholera. I'm going to have to take the plunge this year!

  8. I SO need to read Love in the time of Cholera.

    I love Mr. Knightley!

    Awesome list!

  9. I like a lot on your list, the notebook is one of my favorites. Kaye—the road goes ever ever on

  10. ahhh...I just started reading the Mortal Instruments series and Jace and Clary's relationship is driving me insane!

  11. Scarlett and Rhett...the couple I've seen most across all lists :) I guess we can all identify with star crossed love affairs at one time or another in our lives.

  12. interesting mix of YA and literature! I wonder how much your list will change in a few years? I feel like epic love stories should be the ones we'll read over and over and remember forever. The mortal instruments don't do that for me but I like to see what other people think!


I really appreciate your comments. Thank you!
