I Love/Hate Valentine's Day Reading Challenge

February 1, 2015 – February 28, 2015

How It Works

This reading challenge is called The I Love/Hate Valentine's Day Reading Challenge. What's with the love/hate in the title? Those that are happily coupled generally enjoy Valentine's Day while us Singletons (as Bridget Jone's put it) hate Valentine's Day.

You will choose what books you read based on whether or not you love Valentine's Day or hate it. You don't have to choose the category until February 1st and you are free to switch categories if you want throughout the month. Maybe Valentine's Day will turn out to be a disaster or better than you ever expected!

If You Love Valentine's Day:

Those of you who love Valentine's Day should choose Valentine's themed romance or nonfiction books that are happy. 
For example:

  • A Valentine's Kiss by Lucie Hart
  • Valentine Princess by Meg Cabot
  • Valentine Fantasy by Jamie Denton
  • Be My Valentine by Debbie Macomber

If You Hate Valentine's Day:

Those of you who hate Valentine's Day should choose Valentine's themed books that have titles along this theme. They can be romance, mystery, horror, or even nonfiction.

For example:

  • Hating Valentine's Day by Allison Rushby
  • Valentine's Day Sucks by Juli Alexander
  • The Trouble With Valentine's Day by Rachel Gibson
  • Valentine's Day is Killing Me by Mary Janice Davidson
