You just got engaged, and you're still swooning and staring thoughtfully at that new, sparkly ring on your finger. If you find yourself daydreaming about all things romantic - the proposal, your wedding, the honeymoon and your future with the love of your life, it's likely you will thoroughly enjoy all these books.

Destination Wedding

Vicki Grafton

Want to indulge in some post-engagement romance reading? Here are some of the most beautiful love stories of all time.

The Time Traveler's Wife

A fantastical and nearly impossible to describe story, Audrey Niffenegger's book tells the tale of Henry DeTamble, a daring and courageous librarian who involuntarily travels through time and how his life crosses with artist Clare Abshire. Henry and Clare's love weathers the hardship of being lost in time and Niffenegger's gift for storytelling enthrals the reader in this vibrant tale that requires us to examine love's ability to transcend time or place.

The Notebook

Though the Hollywood movie catapulted this story from the page to the screen and into many homes, the novel by Nicholas Sparks remains well worth a read. This heart-wrenchingly beautiful love story describes a tale of true romance and of love that overcomes enormous obstacles. Sparks' gift for poetic writing may yield a quote for your vows, too.

Pride and Prejudice

There's little debate that Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice deserves a spot on the most romantic books list, this beloved novel has endured through the ages, and has a special place in many women's hearts. 

The English Patient

Poet and novelist Michael Ondaatje's dramatic tale of love and war is thick and as intricately written as a Dickens' story. This Booker Prize winning novel is worth investing in, however, and will reward ladies with a beautiful and inspiring story of love during WWII.

The Feast of Love 

Charles Baxter's voice is funny, reflective and whimsical all at once. This lovely novel contains several stories about love, and deserves a place on your nightstand so you can read a short love story every night before falling asleep.
