Love is in the Air! (And pages)

With February starting, only two things are on most people's minds: a well-needed week-long break, and of course, Valentine's Day!

Whether you are single or in a healthy relationship, these books will engulf you with the intense emotions of teenage love, with its extreme highs and lows:

1. The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight by Jennifer E. Smith

In this debut novel, you follow the narrative of Hadley Sullivan, who is travelling to England to attend her father's second wedding. On the plane, she meets Oliver, and they connect instantly. They go their separate ways, and Hadley must see if they will find each other again. This simple story has a lot of emotional punch, with Hadley coming to terms with her parent's divorce while a romance develops as quickly as it disappears. This cinematic novel will keep you in suspense and leave you optimistic for the future.





2. Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell 
In this 80's set novel, you follow the story of Eleanor, an outcast living in poverty, and Park, a half-Korean living in a predominantly Caucasian community. Romance ensues, but life gets in the way. This novel features relatable characters with attitudes and voices readily seen on any high school campus. Check out this book if you are looking for a novel depicting a sweet but realistic relationship, without any fluff or over-idealism.





3. How They Met, and Other Stories by David Levithan
This anthology includes 18 stories, depicting all types of love. Awkward love, cute love, sudden love, straight love, and gay love. This book is a quick and casual read, and with such a variety, you are sure to find a memorable story you will want to read over and over. If you are a fan of ensemble romance movies, such as Love Actually or Valentine's Day, this is the book for you.


Hopefully these books will entertain and enthrall you, whether you are a veteran of love or a newcomer to it. But now I want to know what you think. Which romance novels do you hold close to your heart?
