5 Classic love stories you should add to your reading list


Now that Valentine's Day hullabaloo is over, we can all go back to celebrating love on a regular basis. Even if you were busy celebrating your loved ones yesterday, now you can also partake in celebrating some other tales of love. We are talking about stories that you might have heard of, maybe even read abridged versions of as a part of your school syllabus. But it is never a bad idea to go back to some classic tales of love, eh?


Pride And Prejudice 

Jane Austen's Pride And Prejudice has been adapted into many screenplays and movies. But the charm of the novel is matchless. The story always has us gripping on to find whether Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy ever really get together. Return to that tale with this deluxe hardbound edition of the book. This will make for a very beautiful addition to your bookshelf.


Jane Eyre

Another beautiful addition to your bookshelf is this paperback Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte. Dive into the love story of Jane Eyre and Mr. Rochester. Experience the many shades of emotions that will keep you glued to find out what happens.


Wuthering Heights 

If you want to read a love story which pans over the many passionate, wild, and destructive emotions that love brings along, it is Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte that you should read.


Love in the Time of Cholera 

Or you can get this paperback copy of Love in the Time of Cholera by Gabriel Garcia Marquez and read about Fermina and Florentino's celebrated love story. A very nuanced idea of love is presented  in this novel which pans over several years, and talks about the enduring power of love.


Love Story

Lastly, a classic we all must have in our collection of books is Erich Segal's Love Story. Funny, indulgent, and enduring, this book is something that might have you shed a tear or two.
