To celebrate Valentine’s Day, Team Thread shares their all-time favourite romantic reads to get you in the mood for love.

The Time Traveler’s Wife by Audrey Niffenegger

Clare and Henry’s love story is complex, extraordinary, rare – hopeful and heartbreaking in equal measure and all at the same time. While The Time Traveler’s Wife is a story that feels wholly impossible and beyond our imaginations, their love is grounding and familiar and a reminder that even in the strangest and most challenging of circumstances, love will always triumph.

The Wedding Date by Jasmine Guillory

Reese Witherspoon, Roxane Gay and Oprah love her and so do we! New York Times bestselling author, Jasmine Guillory, has often been referred to as the queen of contemporary romance and with The Wedding Date you can see why. It’s feel-good, it’s sexy, it’s romantic – the perfect Valentine’s Day Read.

The Flat Share by Beth O’Leary

A deliciously fun and heart-warming rom-com that explores the question a lot of us have asked – is it a good idea to get involved with some one you live with?

Tiffy and Leon share the same bed, but have never met. Leon occupies the flat during the day and Tiffy the rest of the time. But what happens when they eventually meet? Spoiler alert: they don’t hate each other!
