Five Romance Novels to Satisfy Every Guilty Pleasure

Whether you admit it or not, there's a small part of your heart that feels good when you hear a happy ending. Dickens, Hemingway, and Rowling are indisputably fantastic authors, but they don't always scratch that itch - that nagging bit at the back of your mind telling you to find something so sickeningly entertaining, you don't even want to share it with the world. I mean, let's be honest, how many adults have admitted to reading Twilight and liking it?

Here's five books that will satisfy the daydreaming romantic in you.

    Sacred Sins

    Queen of adult romance novels Nora Roberts tells the story of headstrong psychologist Dr. Tess Court, a stunningly strong woman with a dark and twisted past who teams up with Detective Ben Paris to solve the murder of a demented killer. With just about every cliche possible to modern fiction, Sacred Sins is the perfect pairing to a glass of red wine. Beyonce's "Single Ladies" optional.

    The Name of the Wind

    Name of the Wind, is the first in an unparalleled trilogy about Kvothe, a magically gifted young man who grows to be the most notorious wizard his world has ever seen. While the novel can't exactly be classified as romance, Kvothe falls madly in love with a wildly talented and beautiful woman of many names. Their lives branch into separate paths, but somehow, their love finds a way.

    PS, I Love You

    Talk about a depressing love story. Now a Blockbuster hit, PS, I Love You tells the story of Holly, a woman couldn't live without her husband Gerry, until the day she had to. When Gerry dies of a terminal-illness, Holly finds a series of letters he left behind. Through the letters, Holly learns to live, laugh, and love again.

    Angels at the Table

    A lighthearted novel about love and celebration, Angels at the Table tracks a foursome of mischievous angels named Shirley, Goodness, Mercy, and Will (get it?) who attempt to bring together a fated couple, but make their fair share of mistakes in the process. 

    The Princess Bride

    We all know and love the 1987 film starring Cary Elwes and Robin Wright, but did you know it was based on a book? Filled with fencing, fighting, castles, magic, adventures, and the purest forms of love, The Princess Bride should definitely be on your holiday reading list. Trust me, you won't regret it.


    Dancer, prancer, comet, and sometimes vixen. When she's not writing, Pranay can be found wandering art museums and forests, or scavenging local cafes for freshly baked goods.
