Did you receive a gift card to Amazon or a local bookstore for Valentine’s Day? If you are looking for some suggestions for romantic reads this weekend, I have some great ideas!
THE LANGUAGE OF FLOWERS
By Vanessa Diffenbaugh
I reviewed this book back in September 2001. See my review, HERE. I absolutely LOVED it! This story has romance, flowers, and forgiveness for those you care about.
THE FAULT IN OUR STARS
By John Green
I reviewed this book back in October 2013. See my review, HERE. This is written for the younger generation, but is a story for everyone. The love between the two teenagers in this story is one you won’t be able to forget. Keep a box of tissues close by. The movie version of this book comes out in June and you will want to read the book first and then see the movie. See the movie trailer, HERE.
THE MAGIC ROOM
By Jeffrey Zaslow
I reviewed this book back in January 2012. See my review, HERE. I love this nonfiction story about a bridal shop and the family that has owned it for years as well as the different brides who have shopped there for their dresses. Ultimately, this book is about a dad writing this book to share his love, as well as, hopes and dreams for his daughters. There is no greater love than that. Sadly, Zaslow died February 10, 2012, in a car accident without seeing his daughters marry. Read my post HERE.
SH*T MY DAD SAYS
By Justin Halpern
Ok, I know this isn’t a romantic book, but this is the book I gave my husband for Valentine’s Day. It came highly recommended by some friends and I know, if nothing else, it will make him laugh! If you are a parent of teenagers, you might want to check this one out!
