TGIF at GReads! (3)

TGIF is a fun meme hosted by the love Ginger @ GReads!

This Friday's Question:

Love Stories: What are some of your favorite fictional love stories?

For a hopeless romantic like me, this is a pretty hard question ;) But I'll do my best not to rant on for too long.

Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen: Well OF COURSE I was going to put this first! It's only my favourite book of all time and the romance between Lizzie and Mr. Darcy is amazing, I love a lovestory where arguments turn into love :)

Anna and The French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins: seriously, THIS BOOK! Upon finishing it, I wanted to start all over again! It is amazing and I'm dying to read Lola and fall in love with Cricket :)

The Amber Spyglass by Philip Pullman: HEARTBREAKING! But so beautiful!

Robin Hood: I LOVE the story of Robin Hood and Marianne, though maybe not so much in the recent movie retelling (2011 I think, the one with Russel Crowe). But I've idolised this romance since I was a kid and watched the Disney version and I see no reason whatsoever to stop now :)

The love stories in romance novels I told you I was a hopeless romantic ;) My absolute favourite historical romance authors are Sarah MacLean and Sophie Jordan, these ladies know how to write good romance! And I've recently read 2 books by Julie Anne Long which were also amazing!

Let me know what some of your favourite love stories are! Do you agree with mine?

Oh, and TGIF! Seriously!


  1. Oh, love stories!
    I've always loved stuff like P&P but I think my favorite of all time is probably Persephone and Hades because they were the only ones in ALL OF GREEK MYTHOLOGY that never cheated on each other.

    1. YES! Definitely! How could I have forgotten about them! And yeah, the ancient deities didn't really think much of fidelity and all that...

  2. I really should read Pride and Prejudice. I have only seen the movie lol.

    1. I love the movies!! I could really stare at Matthew MacFadyen all day... :)
