Happy Tuesday – This week’s Top Ten Tuesday is based around required reading material – I saw some others putting their own spin on it, so here’s mine —

Top Ten Required Books for Hopless Romantics

The Notebook“The Notebook” by Nicholas Sparks

*This book is class romance at it’s best – one of my favorite books of all times and is always an awesome read – or awesome to watch the movie. Even my husband likes this one (even though he may never admit it) and puts up with me watching it over and over again – so this is a definite #1 choice~

Twilight (Twilight, #1)“Twilight” By Stephanie Meyer

*Team Edward – need i say more? There are more swoon worthy moments in this series than I even care to count — they even wait until their wedding to “consumate” the marriage — Edward and Bella are just… Swoonworthy! And who else fights more for their love?? Awww..the sweetness of it all!

Under the Never Sky (Under the Never Sky, #1)“Under the Never Sky” by Veronica Rossi

*I love this story – Aria and Perry are so sweet and I love that they are both on the same page, fighting together for what they want. Perry is so protective and I really like that they started out not liking each other at all, but grew to “swoon here” love each other! Great series for those of the hopeless romantic type!

Delirium (Delirium, #1)“Delirium” by Lauren Oliver

*I am 100% Team Alex and in the end when he sacrifices himself for Lena – WOW – what could be mroe romantic? I was thinking about that for days after the end of this story…

Wait for You (Wait for You, #1)“Wait for You” by J. Lynn

* My only question to myself is why did I WAIT so long to read this book?? Sawyer is hot and swoonworthy on a serious level! The care and concern he shows Avery from day one is…sweet in an unimaginable way.. Loved this book!

Rule (Marked Men, #1)“Rule” by Jay Crownover

*Ok so this isn’t the typical romance, but it shows how love can even break down the tattoed bad boy, and I like that – the characters are great and the storyline is different. A must read for those who love the bad boy and the sweet love story!

Beautiful Disaster (Beautiful, #1)“Beautiful Disaster” By Jamie McGuire

*Ok Travis is HOT and SWOONWORTHY in a big way. Abby and Travis together are so sweet. This is one of my go-to re-reads when I need a pick me up, or need a good “feel good” read. One of my favorite books of all time, anyone who claims they are a romantic, MUST READ!

Slammed (Slammed, #1)“Slammed” series by Colleen Hoover

*I’m cheating a tad bit here because I need all 3 books for this series to be “hopeless romantic territory” – you can’t leave out part of the story, but all the poetry and things that Lake and Will overcome, amazing and the words they write to each other are… So sweet! Must read!

Lola and the Boy Next Door (Anna and the French Kiss, #2)“Lola and the Boy Next Door” by Stephanie Perkins

*I love this book because it’s a real tale of first loves and things not being perfect, plus Stephanie Perkins is an amazing writer! Cricket and Lola = Love!

Flat-Out Love (Flat-Out Love, #1)“Flat Out Love” by Jessica Park

* This book is one of my all time favorites – a must read for romantics in the hopeless variety! It’s quirky, fun, and a great read. It has real moments that are tear jerking and then those that make you want to swoon big time! It also has humor – which is a huge plus in some of the situations they face in the story. Matt and Julie and Finn – one of my favorite love triangles in a totally dysfunctional way.
