It’s Valentine’s Day, which means everything that resembles a heart will be overpriced, restaurants will be bursting at the seams, and getting a movie ticket will be next to impossible! Hurrah!
It’s no surprise that I’m writing this post since I’m such a lover of love. I have listed some romantic tropes I’ve come across in literature and illustrated them with a few books. I know we’re all probably tired of reading love-related posts, especially my aromantic friends! But I have had this idea in my head for months, so please bear with me (there may be the promise of chocolate at the end of the post — shhhh!).
In all seriousness, I absolutely love Valentine’s Day. It’s the one day of the year when everyone is reminded that they need to do more little gestures for their significant other. Leaving all the commercial schemes aside, I love this day because I’m a sucker for love. I love watching rom-coms, I love reading romance books, I love seeing couples hold hands on the street, and I love showing love. I guess you can say I go a little overboard.
