This week’s book collection is all about romance.  Although we are far from the month of love and approaching Christmas, we can still throw in a little romance. Romance books are like a little mental trip that takes us to a love we are yet to experience.

You may want to refrain from blushing in public while reading some of these books.  Romance from novels paints a picture of a love we are yet to experience if you get what I am saying. From the fairy tales, we all dream of, to burning with desires and aching for our loved ones, stay tuned while I share this list with you.

The Duke And I.  by Julia Quinn

You have probably watched the series on Netflix,  but this community knows books are always better than movies.  The Romance between Daphney and Simon leaves one wanting more out of life. I mean who doesn’t want to “Burn” for their love.

Err let me not dwell so much on the steamy sessions they have. If you want fantasy, fairytales, romance, laughter, some naughty ideas as well, grab this book.

I cannot promise a land of beauty and roses, they do have their own fair share of troubles but their love is stronger than the challenges they face. You may learn a thing or two about fighting for your loved ones.


Call Me By Your Name by Andre Aciman

A once in a lifetime kind of love, romance that prints permanent memories in your heart, the one you always compare all other encounters with?  This is it, this is the love that stays with you forever.

Oliver and Elio begin their journey by denying their true feelings for one another, often sending each other mixed signals (What a terrible thing, I know ).

Sometimes I wish I could insert myself in a book and scream at characters to just get on with it already, but you know Authors love keeping us on our toes.


Nights In Rodanthe By Nicholas Sparks

Every now and then, life offers all of us a second chance at love, and who better than Nicholas Sparks(The God Of Romance ) to narrate a story of two fragile individuals finding comfort and refuge in one another, even if it’s for a little while.

Paul and Adrienne find themselves alone and choose to make their short moments memorable but this is only the beginning of feelings that will linger for a lifetime.



Daisy  Jones and The Six by Taylor Jenkins Reid

Err well, although the romance in this book isn’t typically the fantasy we might have in mind, we can learn a thing or two. Based on the life of musicians, Daisy falls in love with an Italian man and decides to marry him. It doesn’t last of course, but there is something darker brewing between Daisy and someone’s husband.

Will they act on their feelings or not? While we are still on this topic, do stay away from married men, even when they claim to be out of love with their spouse or separated.


Three Women by Lisa Taddeo

Jaw-dropping revelations, pedophiles preying on school kids, women having affairs, and another side of life you may have not encountered. The Author explores some topics we often refrain from discussing. Call it the unusual side of romance. I don’t want to say much, otherwise, I will spoil the fun.


The Notebook by Nicholas Sparks

I am starting to sound like a fan now, well I am. Nicholas Sparks makes you fall in love sitting on your couch reading the lines Noah throws on Allie. Even when the parents disapprove of this relationship, it seems Noah and Allie’s love for one another will overcome any challenge thrown their way.

Grab the book and find out more, even if you have watched the movie.

“You are my best friend as well as my lover, and I do not know which side of you I enjoy the most. I treasure each side, just as I have treasured our life together.”
― Nicholas Sparks, The Notebook
