Sometimes Love is Sweet
There really is nothing sweeter than a Stephanie Perkins books to get you a romantic mood. Her two books, Anna and the French Kiss and Lola and the Boy Next Door, are adorable and slightly mushy (but not too much) and all around very charming. Her protagonists are quirky and smart girls and the heroes are defintiely swoon-worthy.
Sometimes Love is Steamy
Sometimes Loved is Complicated
Valentine's Day isn't always about what's going right in love--you know things can get messy. Definitely check out Getting Over Garrett Delaney by Abby McDonald (sounds way more depressing than it really is) for some good angst. Jane by April Lindner is a modern retelling of Jane Eyre, which we all know is very, very complicated story, and a good pick as well!
Sometimes Love is Star-Crossed
This is definitely true of Hazel and Augustus in The Fault in Our Stars. Jackson and Holly of Tempest don't have an easy time of it either. Michele and Philip of Timeless aren't even in the same century and they're falling in love. These books address the question: Does love really conquer all? Of course it does.
Sometimes Love is Meant to Be
From cross-country road trips (Amy and Roger's Epic Detour) to trans-Atlantic flights (The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight) to escaping imprisonment in a dystopian society (Shatter Me), at the end of the story, you know some love is just meant to be.
