    I enjoyed reading Marley and Me…Apart from that, I am yet to explore books from your list.
    I really felt this was a fabulous idea to come up with books that aren’t cliched Valentine’s reading. A refreshing post, indeed!

    I have read Tuesdays with More and A Dog’s Purpose. Sometime non-romantic books also conveys a good and deep meaning of love.

      Exactly Alpana. I am glad people are now warming up to the fact that Valentine’s is not just about romance.

    Great! What a delight for Valentine’s week for book lovers. Honestly, I have not read any of them from the list. But yes, your recommendations are always on my top list while picking the books so this time noted down ‘The Untimely Adventures Of Shergill Sisters’ for next month’s read.

    Wow, what a varied list of books. I read only three of them. “Tuesdays with Morris”, “Marley and Me” and “A Man called Ove”. The Taylor’s book is on my TBR since last year. Will pick it up at the earliest.

    I haven’t read any from your list apart from MARLEY & ME and A DOG’s PURPOSE. Cried buckets.
    A well curated list….though the underlying theme is love, each book is very different and celebrates diff kinds of love. Awesome picks. Adding most to my reading list

    You are such a voracious reader, Ritu. Amazed at your speed and your reviews. I feel ashamed am not reading anything. I have read Tuesdays with Morrie but I actually found it very tedious.Will look up the rest of the books you have shared on Love.

    This is a unique concept of books live but not of couple. Each book sounds interesting. I have already read marley and me and even watched the movie being a dog lover myself. You have given a very interesting list to read.

    What a lovely set of book recommendations as usual. There are so many favorite books here that I have read, re-read and recommended to my friends and family. A man called Ove, Marley & Me, A dog’s purpose, Shergill Sisters, Tuesdays with Morrie all of them brilliant books with amazing plotlines and takeaways for the readers.
