Being an avid book reader, I am always in search of a movie that gives me the same vibes as some of the romance novels I read. If you know my reading taste, you know that I like cheesy, swoon worthy romances, but that I’m also in it for the steam. Below are some of my favorite romance movies that make me feel as if I’m reading a novel.
10 Things I Hate About You
This is my favorite movie of all time. I absolutely love Heath Ledger and my heart breaks knowing he is no longer on this earth to steal my heart. Till the end of time, Patrick will forever be my favorite on-screen boyfriend. Due to this movie being based around a bet, I think of one of my all time favorite reads: After. Both relationships form over a negative bet that both couples overcome. Being that 10 Things I Hate About You is based in the 90's, it's got that old school feel that makes my soul happy.
The Ugly Truth
A common trope that I enjoy is tension. This revolves around two people who are clearly interested in each other but spend forever bickering until one of them confesses their feelings for the other. It's a classic and I cannot get enough. The Ugly Truth is all of that plus more. I find this movie to be the modern day version of a historical romance novel named Say Yes To The Marquess by Tessa Dare.
He's Just Not That Into You
We've all been there; liking someone or committing to someone who doesn't give you their all. This movie shows the secret obsessions individuals go through when they're trying to keep the attention of someone they like. This movie reminds me of one of my favorite reads of this year: One To Watch. Both show a woman struggling to prove to another person that they are worthy of their love, but learn they are worth so much more.
