2. The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald - While The Great Gatsby is not a romance in the traditional sense, it is a tale of obsession and love. Daisy and Gatsby are crazy about each other, and although their love is never meant to last, it still makes for an emotional, satisfying read.
3. Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen - Although I'm more of a Gothic romance lover, even I can't help but appreciate Jane Austen's most famous novel. When I want a romance fix, I either watch the movie or the BBC series or I read the book. Who doesn't love Mr. Darcy?
5. Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte - When it comes to romance, I turn to the classics, and while I detest both Heathcliff and Catherine, there is something mesmerizing about the desperate, wild love they share. The passion between them is a force to be reckoned with.
6. The Princess Bride by William Goldman - I love Wesley. Need I say more? While Buttercup can be obnoxious, I loved the romance between Wesley and Buttercup. Whether you watch the movie or read the book, you just can't go wrong.
7. Howl's Moving Castle by Diana Wynne Jones - While I loved the movie, the book is so much better. The romance is so well-done in the book. It's sweet and touching. I can't wait to reread it soon!
8. Graceling by Kristin Cashore - I think Po and Katsa are perfect together. The romance was wonderfully done. They love each other with such a passion, and nothing keeps them apart.
9. The Sky is Everywhere by Jandy Nelson - I haven't raved about this book for about a week so I think it's time again. Once again, this is a book that doesn't have romance in the traditional sense. After her sister's death, Lennie Walker is torn between a chance at true love and a downward spiral into misery. While there are some tough scenes, I think Joe and Lennie are good for each other.
10. The Time Traveler's Wife - I'll admit I liked the movie slightly more than the book, but I enjoyed both. The characters are very complex and there's nothing simple or easy about this romance. Clare and Henry have known each other since he was 36 and she was 6, which makes for a unique premise and an unbreakable bond between these lovebirds when they continue to meet during Henry's time travels.
