It’s the season of love and we all want to gift our little cupids a little something, firstly as a gift to let them know we love them so much and secondly to make them understand what love is all about.
According to me, books on love, friendship, acceptance, generosity are great to read anytime around the year and Valentine’s make the perfect occasion to stock up on these reads. They are not only extraordinary but also make affordable yet wonderful gifts.
Let’s take a look at some of our favourites.
1. No Matter What by Debi Gliori
