Romance is necessary. It’s how we feed the soul. Since the beginning of time, we’ve strived to find that special someone who makes us feel wanted and loved. Sometimes the love lasts, sometimes it doesn’t. But no matter who we date, we never tire of being swept off our feet. This was a hard one, but I found my three favorite romance novels.
- FIFTY SHADES OF GREY by E. L. JAMES
This erotic phenomena took my breath away. I think every woman in America thought Anastasia Steele was the luckiest fictional character ever created. Meeting Christian Grey by chance is what made her so intriguing. Nerdy school girl meets hot billionaire…can only get better from there. Although his hobbies were a minor setback, it didn’t stop them from falling for each other nor stop him constantly wanting to please her in every way.
- PRIDE AND PREJUDICE by JANE AUSTEN
A simple misunderstanding can go a long way if you let it. Luckily for Elizabeth Bennet and Mr. Darcy, they were both able to get out of their own way and find a spark within each other. I love how they both let their guards down in order to let love in.
- JANE EYRE by CHARLOTTE BRONTË
Jane the governess and Edward Rochester fall in love in such a natural way. The first time they met, he fell off of a horse. She helped him up, only to find out later that he is her boss. They grow closer after spending so much time together and fall in love. After learning he is still married, Jane keeps true to her morals and leaves, but fate eventually reunites them. At that moment, they are both able to realize how much they mean to each other.
