For all our anti-Valentine's Day moaning, turns out we're a pretty romantic nation after all, Eason reveal.
So rosemantic, in fact, we're still reading Wuthering Heights. Emily Bronté, Jane Austen, they sure don't make 'em like they used to. Though that's not to say we haven't adapted to modern writers. Among the most popular gooey reads you'll find Cecilia Ahern's PS I Love You (let's just rid our minds of Gerard Butler's horrendous Irish accent in the cinematic adaptation), One Day (personal favourite of mine, I almost needed therapy by the book's end) and The Notebook, a timeless classic.
If you're looking for an alternative to a heart-shaped box of chocolates or a vom-inducing card, one of these books just might land you a home run.
