Novel and Chill, The Books We Love at Dubray.

We love books.

We fall in love with characters. We celebrate LGBTQ+ romance. We hope that love won’t go unrequited. We route for the underdog. We get involved in love triangles and pick a side… Team Edward or Team Jacob? (Twilight). We imagine how the love story continues when we get to the last page of Normal People. We weep uncontrollably when They Both Die at the End.

Today we celebrate Valentine’s Day and our love of books with our booksellers all time favourite romantic reads.
