You best believe I'm in love, L-U-V (with books!) Our top 10 Valentine's picks are here!

Brrrr, it's cold out there! But the wintery weather provides the perfect excuse to snuggle up with your sweetheart (or pal, or cat!) this Valentine's weekend. First, brave the cold to find the perfect book to add to your cuddle puddle. Reading together is the new Netflix and chill, you heard it here first!

Here are our top 10 most heart-warming picks for Valentine's:

Diane Obomsawin's collection of coming out stories is one of the sweetest things you'll ever read. Available in both French (J'aime les filles) and English (On Loving Women).

Will the perennially unlucky in love Charlie Brown find a Valentine in his mailbox this year? Will his crush on a certain little red-headed girl ever be requited? Young love is bittersweet, as any of the Peanuts gang can tell you. Valentine fun abounds in A Valentine for Charlie Brown

Remember that time when Moomin stepped out on Snorkmaiden, after falling under the spell of Miss La Goona? A love triangle for the ages unfolds in Tove Jansson's classic Moomin Falls in Love!

Latvian comics press kuš komiksi has compiled a wonderful little pocket-sized collection of love-themed comics, appropriately titled Sweet Romance!

When it comes to wooing, you can hardly go amiss with poetry. Pablo Neruda's Love Poems is published in dual-language format, so you can read aloud to your sweetheart in Spanish or English!

Of course, not all love need be romantic. Yumi Sakugawa's ode to platonic love is a good reminder that friend love is one the very best kinds of love. Why not confess your friend love to a pal this Valentine's day? Guaranteed less scary than confessing a romantic crush!

If you're feeling like revisiting a classic, this collection of three short stories about love by the master of the form, Anton Chekhov, is a solid bet. Bonus: the striking cover design by Seth! 

Liz Prince's funny and self-deprecating collection of comics about singledom is immanently relatable to anyone who has experienced the joys (and occasional horrors) of flying solo. Featuring lots of cats, cute boys, and punk rock.

 For creative Valentines, a gift of stationery makes a thoughtful and romantic gesture. (Florals and seasonal colour palette entirely optional!)


Lastly, a card is a very sweet way to remind your friends and lovers that you think they're amazing. We have a zillion adorable cards to choose from, and nary a cheesy one to be found!
