Valentine's Day reading

It may or may not have escaped your attention that it is Valentine's Day today, so as a little extra I thought I'd highlight the Virago Modern Classics that I've reviewed so far with "Love" in the title, in case you are in need of some inspiration for something to read this February 14th.

The love-child
For love alone (Stead)
Love lessons (Wyndam)
A little love, a little learning (Bawden)
The loving spirit (Du Maurier)
No fond return of love (Pym)

Have you read any other VMCs with Love in the title?

And what will be my Valentine's Day reading? How could it be anything other than Love by Elizabeth von Arnim! Check back later in the week to read about it.


  1. Happy Valentine's Day! I hope we both enjoy Love.

    I am desperate to read The Love-Child; I was reading something about it this month but can't remember what nor where.

  2. Happy Vday, Verity! I'm reading Tar Baby for Valentine's, though it doesn't have the word love in the title, it's described as being a love story.

  3. The Love Child was excellent, IIRC.

    I just read today that Virago republished The Eye of Love by Margery Sharp, which is so awesome, because I *need* it.

  4. The eye of love looks good! Exciting!

    I hope Tar Baby was good Claire.
