Is there anything better in this world than that rush of adrenaline, that natural high at the feeling of love. And for the reader and viewer, genuine, swooning, pulse-racing, fever inducing, gleeful, heartful love can be so much fun.

You could start at historical romance and indulge yourself in the rich language of Cecilia Grant’s A Gentleman Undone, Sherry Thomas’s Not Quite a Husband or the lightness of Julia Quinn’s On the Way to the Wedding. Or you could watch Shakespeare in Love or oh-so-many versions of Pride and Prejudice.


If you prefer contemporary reads there are some wonderful characterisations in Shannon Stacey’s Exclusively Yours, Rachel John’s Jilted and turn the heat up with Victoria Dahl’s Real Men Will. Sarah Mayberry’s books pull at the heart strings with their depth of emotions that have you wrought by the end of her books. As for film and movies who can go past the hilarity of Coupling, the sweetness of Amelie or the sharpness of Easy A.


There are so many heartreads out there – this could be a month full of love.


While you are reading, playing or watching for #heartreads, you might like to tweet about it using #heartreads so that other people can have a conversation with you.


There will be a live twitter discussion on 26 February starting at 8.00pm Australian Eastern Daylight Time.  9.00pm New Zealand Daylight Time, 6.00pm Singapore Standard Time, 12.00 noon Central European Time.  Note : this is a staggered start to the discussion.

Use the tags #heartread and #rwpchat as you discuss the reading, watching playing that is your experience of faraway, so others can join in the conversation too.
