6 books of sweeping love stories for the romantics

If there’s one thing I’ve learned as a grown adult, it’s that fictional romance will forever be unmatched. Reading fictional romance is entirely an experience on its own. From the moment the main character meets their love interest till the end of the book, regardless of whether the book concludes on a happy note or a tragic one, we feel everything the protagonist feels. We experience the butterflies, the heart pumping just a beat faster, the need for them to meet again, the squeals and giggles when they confess to each other, the overwhelm when they kiss, the absolute tenderness or the wildness of their love that leaves you aching for more and last and worst, the whole experience leaves a deep hollow within you, desperately wanting to have the whole experience again for the first time. Whether you’re in a relationship or a single pringle, fictional romance is bound to have most of your attention. Here’s a list of books to transport you to an irresistible dimension of love and leave you craving for more.
