The Guardian (one of my favorite newspapers) has amassed an awesome collection of the 1000 novels everyone must read. They are divided into categories, romance, crime, comedy. Here are the top ten novels about love. (Warning: this really means that they are also about tragedy.) As it turns out, I have only ready one of the first ten! Go check out the whole list! You'll get lots of inspiration, I promise.
1. The Wanderer (Le Grand Meaulnes) by Henri Alain-Fournier 2. Dom Casmurro by Joaquim Maria Machado de Assis 3. The Garden of the Finzi-Continis by Giorgio Bassani 4. Love for Lydia by HE Bates 5. More Die of Heartbreak by Saul Bellow 6. Lorna Doone by RD Blackmore 7. The Death of the Heart by Elizabeth Bowen 8. The Heart of the Day by Elizabeth Bowen 9. Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte 10. Villette by Charlotte Bronte
