I hope that you're all planning to snuggle up in bed with your honey on this special day, or perhaps
enjoy a candlelight dinner with soft music playing in the background...etc. etc. [insert romantic goodness here]...but before you head out to get ready for your date, let me leave you with this question.

What's the most romantic book EVER?

I've put together a list of some of the classics, but what other titles would you add?

1. Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
2. Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte
3. Gone With the Wind by Margaret Mitchell
4. Rebecca by Daphne Du Maurier
5. Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte
6. Katherine by Anya Seton
7. Persuasion by Jane Austen
8. Tess of the D'Urbervilles by Thomas Hardy
9. The Thorn Birds by Colleen McCullough
10. Frenchman's Creek by Daphne du Maurier

Today I'm also blogging at Chelle Cordero's blog, sharing my favourite romantic poem and why I never mind not getting flowers on Valentine's Day.

PS: WOW! Can you believe this is my 200th post!?!

I want to read Katherine (maybe again. If I read it, it was decades ago). I just finished a non-fiction book about her which was fascinating. Love your list!

Happy Valentine's Day!
