I don’t expect my husband to do anything for me for Valentine’s Day. And not in that “I say I don’t expect it but really I’m lying” way of which women are sometimes accused, but for real. And he knows full well that when I said “Happy Valentine’s Day” this morning, that was the extent of the effort I put into the holiday for him. We’re on the same page where today is concerned. There are other days that are much more important to us and lots of everyday days where I’d rather be treated to something special than on a day dictated by societal pressure.

That being said, I am a romantic, and I write about love and romance and all that good stuff, and I do like all the romance-related stuff that turns up around this time of year, so I thought I’d share some of the romance-related things I’ve encountered recently. In some cases, I’ve no idea where I first saw the link, so apologies if I miss mentioning you.

Susanna Kearsley gives us some of her favourite romantic reads here. I haven’t read Random Harvest, but I’m a sucker for Goodbye, Mr. Chips by the same author, so will have to give it a try.

How Hollywood says I love you (thanks to Wendy Hartley for retweeting the link from… someone else, whoever you are.)

Looking for a good romance read? Joanna Bourne is one of the best, so no surprise her latest did so well in the All About Romance readers’ poll. http://jobourne.blogspot.com/2012/02/hoo-boy-black-hawk-is-best-romance-at.html

One take on the top 10 kisses in literature here. Some of them I wouldn’t have picked, but it’s an interesting list. (Via Nephele Tempest, I think.)

And finally, I’ll leave you with a song.

Happy Valentine’s Day!
