TGIF is a weekly meme that can be found over at greadsbooks.com. Every week you can find a question that is bound to get you thinking.
It has been quite a while since I have done a TGIF hop but I could not pass up this weeks question.
Love Stories: What are some of your favourite fictional love stories?
Jane Eyre hands down has always been my favourite love story since the moment that I read it. Jane and Rochester’s story just stuck with me after I read it. And because of this it has been one of the most replaced books on my shelf .
These Old Shades by Georgette Heyer. The romance between Justin and Léon is not the strongest part of the book (in my opinion) but it is a lovely story and I have read it more that once.
I admit to having a weakness for Beauty and the Beast stories. Man scarred in battle finds girl of his dreams. Drunk father wagers only daughter to the dark, brooding, reclusive earl. Yip, can’t get enough of that kind of thing.
One of my FAVOURITES! That for some reason I don’t have a copy of anymore…weird. So we have a long dead knight and his men who thanks to a curse have been unable to move on and along come the love interest. This is honest to goodness one of those book you read and start to wonder if there will be a happy ending… The same can be said for Cindy Miles other book Into Thin Air (touch and go a bit)
And I shall leave it there.
