21 Romance Novels You'll Fall In Love With By The Fire

Recently, I found myself reading a bunch of romance novels and it's truly unleashing the romantic side of me. With fall weather nearing, it's the perfect time to cozy up with a good book and ignite the romantic flame in your hearts with the turn of every page.

Here are 21 romantic books you should read this fall, some I've read (hence the reviews), and some I'm hoping to get my hands on.

“Married Lovers” by Jackie Collins

Jackie Collins is known to be the "First Lady" of exotic sex as displayed in many of her novels which have successfully been portrayed in films. She truly takes love to a whole new level filled with breath-taking twists and turns in the lives of each of her characters. "Married Lovers" is a fabulous story about 3 high-profile Hollywood couples and how they all struggle with preserving the sanctity of their marriage while battling their inner desires of lust and passion. In addition, there's a suspenseful murder mystery build in alongside the juicy romance and hot affairs to keep you enticed. If you want to catch a glimpse of Hollywood romance, then "Married Lovers" will definitely fulfill your desire!

“Mixed Blessings” by Danielle Steel

"Mixed Blessings" was my favorite classic that I revisited during the pandemic. An awe-inspiring story of 3 couples who each struggle with their desire of becoming parents. One woman experiences the pain of infertility which unknowingly strains her relationship with her husband. Another woman, a prominent attorney ties the knot at the age of 42 to a man, a Judge who is a widower with two teenagers. They struggle to have a child of their own and the trials and tribulations strengthen their bond even more. The third couple is stuck in a relationship where one of them is strictly against the thought of having kids. Ultimately, "Mixed Blessings" is a gentle reminder to all of us that the right things will always happen at the right time and there is absolutely no need to rush things.

“The Last Song” by Nicholas Sparks

"The Last Song" is a beautifully woven story that highlights platonic love between parents and their children along with romantic, sexually driven love between two lovers. I have read the novel along with watching the film and I must say the film has justified the novel magnificently. If you are searching for a novel that will tug your heartstrings, then this is the perfect read for you!

“50 Shades of Grey” by E.L. James

When you are in the mood to experiment with love at its finest in its most passionate and sensuous form, then the "50 Shades of Grey" trilogy is your best bet! This is intended for a mature audience and may include sexual content unfamiliar to you, but the adventure is well worth it. I found myself delving into the nuances of the dynamic characters of Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele, while also intricately observing their evolution as a couple.

“The Fault in Our Stars” by John Green

This is a poignant and emotional novel that has left me in tears, and even watching the film adaptations of it has stirred an overflowing amount of emotions within me. Perhaps, this novel and film are best relished with your S.O. rather than solo. Both characters are cancer patients who meet at a Cancer Patient Support Group, and from there, their instant connection and soul-stirring romance start to unravel. "The Fault in Our Stars" is a revelation of undying commitment and unfaltering love. On top of that, it pays a beautiful homage to the wedding vow a husband makes to his wife which is to continue supporting each other "in sickness and in health, to love and to cherish, till death us do part."

“Pride and Prejudice” by Jane Austen

"Pride and Prejudice" is a timeless classic which always gets better with time. It delves into a plethora of societal aspects pertaining to marriage, social status, and the family fortune. Jane Austen explains the complexities tied with the bond of arranged marriages in the early 19th century and further pinpoints ideological and societal clashes between two individuals alongside their families. This evergreen tale will always make you experience the wonders and thrills of marriage and what the journey is all about.

Where To Find The Best Coffee Drinks In America, According To A Survey

Here's the coffee shop where you should get your morning brew.

58506

Coffee, for billions of people, is one of the only things that can get us out of bed (after hitting snooze a time or two), especially in 2020. Because, if we're being honest, is there anything that beats a quality cup of coffee on those mornings when all we wanted to do is roll over and go back to sleep? The answer is no. And if you're headed to a coffee shop to pick up your caffeinated beverage, you don't want to sleep on the best coffee drinks in America.

According to LiveShopper Sassie's Coffee Project survey, when it comes to chain coffee shops, there are definitely preferred spots you'll want to hit up for your go-to order — whether you order the classic, frozen, or flavored coffee, an espresso, tea, or other. To figure out the hot spots, 1,000 coffee drinkers across the United States took to LiveShopper's mobile app, PrestoShopper, to answer various questions about their coffee drinking habits and preferences. In return, these survey respondents got money back for their coffee — something any user who downloads the app can do as well (yes, even you).

When it comes to coffee, everyone has different criteria for what goes into their "perfect cup." Some caffeine lovers, though, are extra particular when it comes to their beloved beverage. One survey found that the state you're from (or the one you live in now) may play a part in determining how much of a coffee snob you actually are.

LiveShopper Sassie, the company behind this Coffee Project survey, received input from 1,000 coffee drinkers via their mobile app, PrestoShopper, to ask various questions about their coffee drinking habits and preferences. In return, these survey respondents got money back for their coffee — something any user who downloads the app can do as well (yes, even you).

7 Reasons 'Hubie Halloween' Is A Must-Watch Halloween Film For October Movie Nights

Just knowing it's an Adam Sandler movie, you can assume it's funny but very ridiculous.

158
Netflix

"Hubie Halloween" was just released on October 7. It follows Hubie Dubois in Salem, Massachusetts, on Halloween. He patrols the town to make sure people are safe. He's the kindest and caring person in the town and also the most bullied.

This poor man is scared of everything. He screams when he sees scary decorations and when people prank him. Definitely a laugh, but when I watched it, I felt bad for him. The one person that pulled at my heartstrings is Violet Valentine, a woman he had a crush on since high school. She's super nice to him and stands up for him when she can. It was great seeing someone, other than his grandma, on Hubie's side.

While this is my first ever presidential election, I have voted before in others, including at least one other "off" year election. I can honestly say that one of the things that made voting for the first time interesting was that I personally don't really identify myself with either party completely.

"Emily in Paris" is one of the newest Netflix original series and it began streaming on the platform on October 2.

I knew this was going right to the top of my watch list because I have a serious girl crush on Lily Collins, it's from the creator of "Sex and the City", and the plot feeds directly into my "Mamma Mia" fantasy of just hopping on a plane and killing it in a whole new country. Not going to lie, the series has its slightly cringe-y moments, but that honestly makes me love it even more.
