Sunday Salon - Happy Valentine's Day!

Happy Valentine's Day!

The other day I was reading a post at Alayne's great blog, The Crowded Leaf, about her favorite romantic fiction; I don't really read romance novels per se, but some of my favorite romantic literary fiction includes

Jane Eyre, by Charlotte Bronte, the quintessential Gothic romance,

Gone with the Wind, by Margaret Mitchell, because- does it really get any better than Scarlett and Rhett?

A Very Long Engagement, by Sebastian Japrisot, a sweet and passionate love story set in the post-World War I France about a young woman searching for her missing fiancé, and of course,

Possession, by A.S. Byatt, about two pairs of literary lovers- one in the present and one in the past.

What are your favorite romantic reads?

My husband and I will have a nice dinner at home this evening capped by some homemade crème brulées; I hope you have a great Valentine's Day whatever your plans are!
