Un-Valentine's Day Reads

broken heart

In case you missed all the hype, Valentine's Day is coming up this Saturday. While lots of people are ordering flowers and planning romantic dinners, lots of other people are planning anti-valentine's day shindigs - or maybe not planning anything at all! Whether you're an anti-Valentine supporter, or just sick of all the lovey-dovey romance everywhere, here is a list of some "Un-Valentine's Day" books to get you through.

Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn
Boy meets girl, boy marries girl, boy...murders girl? The dysfunctional relationship of Nick and Amy Dunne will remind you that sometimes being single isn't so bad.

Before I Go To Sleep by S.J. Watson
Imagine waking up every morning having no idea who you are. Now imagine if the people you love and trust might not be telling the truth about your past - and your identity. Scary stuff, no?

This is How You Lose Her by Junot Dìaz
The protagonist is an adulterous fellow who leaves a trail of broken hearted women everywhere he goes. We've all dated someone like that, be honest.

High Fidelity by Nick Hornby
After getting dumped by the love of his life, Rob revisits his top-five breakups.

Fifty Shades of Grey by E.L. James
No summary necessary! "Romance" is definitely not the first word that comes to my mind.
