Talking Romance …

Today on the #WeLoveRomance blog tour we’re talking about our favourite romances in books, films and TV shows.  Here’s mine:

Film – This is such an easy one for me.  When Harry Met Sally is my all-time favourite film.  It tackles that age old dilemma of whether men and women can ever really be just friends or does the thorny issue of sex always raise its head.  It’s such a feel-good, funny film with a great cast and Billy Crystal and Meg Ryan spark off each other wonderfully.  My favourite line from the film comes from Sally when she learns her ex is getting married: 

She’s supposed to be his transitional person, she’s not supposed to be the ONE.”

TV Show – Truly, Madly, Deeply  –  I can remember watching this on telly and being blown away by the storyline.  Nina is struggling to come to terms with the death of her boyfriend Jamie and when she reaches rock bottom he reappears in her life as a ghost.  This brings a lot of funny, emotional and deeply touching moments.  (Must admit I’m partial to a ghost in stories – see my first novel Desperately Seeking Heaven!)  Juliet Stevenson and Alan Rickman are fantastic in the lead roles.  A wonderful film, although you’ll need a big box of tissues.

Book – Love Story by Erich Segal  – I can’t remember the number of times I read this as a teenager, but I do remember sobbing all the way through each time.  It was such a beautifully written, simple read, but heart-breaking at the same time.  Oh my goodness, I’m welling up just thinking about it.  Of course, the book is inextricably linked in my mind with the film and the fabulous performances from Ryan O’Neal and Ali McGraw.  Definitely a man-size box of tissues needed if you’re thinking of reading this one!

So they’re my favourite romances.  You can follow the links below to find out what books and films leave the other #WeLoveRomance authors feeling all romantic!

But what about you, what would make your list of favourite romances?
