A great reminder that romance novels are heartwarming and uplifting books, keep reading to find out which eight books Ali would take to the sandy shores of a deserted island…

Land of the Beautiful Dead By r Lee Smith

R Lee Smith writes like no other. This book is a mixture of horror and fairy tales. I love the novel arc, I love Lan, I love Azrael, but most of all I love the post-apocalyptic world she has built.

The spare part of Carolyn Jewel

It’s a really interesting romance novel that plays a lot with timelines, the supernatural and the idea of soulmates. I love the dynamics of the sullen sun and the surroundings of Cumbria. What I liked the most about this book was the way it played with timelines a lot, and it also has this wonderful paranormal element and a soulmate component that the characters are supposed to be in; I love soulmate stories and this book has a wonderful twist that is quite unusual for a romance novel.

Not quite a husband of Sherry Thomas

No one writes as lyrically as Sherry Thomas. She is famous for her series Lady Sherlock, in which Sherlock Holmes is a woman; all of which are incredible. And she writes a lot of main characters who are either into STEM or have a lot of STEM-reafterd interests. Besides, it’s a second chance romance, which is my catnip. Not Quite a Husband is set between the UK and India and tells the story of two of the main characters falling in love again, which I just dug up. I find his use of language incredibly inspiring.

Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen

Pride and Prejudice has been such a formative book for me; it has meant a lot to me at various times in my life. I’ve read it so many times that I know a lot of scenes by heart – it’s a book that I can read over and over again, and I always have the feeling that it’s the first time.

Quiet Talking Stranger by Lisa Kleypas

Another of my favorite authors, Lisa Kleypas, also writes historical and contemporary novels, and this book in particular is the third book in a series about a family in Texas, and I love the whole series. He’s got them. Best joke. In the universe. This book is essentially about the protagonist Ella, who has to take care of her sister’s baby while her sister is in rehab, and how she still falls in love with her sister’s baby is just top notch. It’s a really complex story about not only romantic love, but also about the love Ella has for her sister’s baby. It warms my heart every time I read it.

The Winnipeg Wall and I by Mariana Zapata

It’s another self-published book, and I love it because it’s a book about marriage with a green card, and as a long-time immigrant to the U.S., struggling with visas and just recently getting a Green card, I just loved every part of this book. Slow burning is just delicious and I love Vanessa’s character development (starting her own company, practicing marathon running, learning to stand up for herself.)

Obsidian Heart by Nalini Singh

I love every book in this series, but Heart of Obsidian is special because Sahara literally saves the world from Kaleb’s rage and because it is obvious that he hates almost everyone except her. I’ve been waiting for this book for years and was so happy when it finally came out.

Miss Smilla’s Feeling for Snow by Peter Hoeg

I decided to finish with a non-fiction book. Smilla is unlike any character I’ve ever met, I love the combination of science and snow and I love the slow unfolding of the secret in the narrative.
