Love Story

Lady Gaga might get her spangle-covered kicks singing about bad romances, but we’re pretty sure that if she left her, um…rubber egg? plastic pod? . . . every now and again, she’d realize that there are lots of memorable love stories out there. We asked around our office and also polled our readers on the Fresh American Facebook page. When it comes to both books and movies our poll-ees had lots of opinions on the best of the best romances.

“Definitely anything Nicholas Sparks! The Notebook because he reads her their love story every day to bring back her memory. And Cecilia Ahern’s P.S. I Love You—it melts my heart that he leaves her love notes even after he is gone.”

Audrey Tautou in Amelie

Amelie. Cute romantic. Visually stunning.”


“I adore the sweet, romantic fall/Christmas movies: While You Were Sleeping, You’ve Got Mail. Sweet & romantic reaches my soul much more easily. I don’t know why. :)”


“That’s easy as far as movies go. Born Romantic is a great movie with an incredible story. I am a sucker for Love Actually too.”


“My mom loves the book A Town Like Alice. It really is a nice love story.”

Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio in Titanic

“OMG, hello! Rose (Kate Winslet) & Jack (Leonardo DiCaprio) = Titanic. It doesn’t matter how many times I watch this movie, I cryyyyy like a baby.”


Pride and Prejudice, the book and the BBC movie. I love love! I think that the story itself is hopeful without being a completely sappy, sticky romance. Everyone who chooses to accept life’s lessons gets what they desire, and those who fail to adapt or try and control life are their own worst enemy. And Colin Firth’s portrayal of Mr. Darcy helps….just sayin.’”

“My favorite is the classic Love Story because ‘love means never having to say you’re sorry.’”

Hugh Grant and Martine McCutcheon in Love Actually

Love Actually—I love the setting and I love all the different story lines. The unexpected come together. ♥”


“My favorite of all time book and movie is a classic: Gone with the Wind.

Billy Crystal and Meg Ryan in When Harry Met Sally...

When Harry Met Sally…is one of my faves! The Notebook, City of Angels, Pride and Prejudice . . . *sigh.*”


“I’m not normally into love stories, but Somewhere in Time is a fave flick of mine. I love everything about it! The story, the place, actors,.etc. ♥”


Clark Gable and Vivien Leigh in Gone with the Wind

“My fave book of all time is James Patterson’s Suzanne’s Diary for Nicholas! Wonderful read!!!!! Very touching story also.”


Once is an incredibly emotional and realistic romance. That the main characters don’t end up together (but can’t stop thinking of each other) just proves that sometimes trying to let go is the ultimate expression of love.”


“My parents (they were amazing).”
