Can you feel the love?

It’s all about love for me this month, admittedly not only because of a recent visit to the amazing Festival of Love at the Southbank Centre but also because of my upcoming wedding with Tom… Endless songs, stories and paintings¬†have been made in the name of love; and yet we will never understand it’s true workings… Right. Well, let’s at least give it a go. This list of my (ok, not mine but Tom’s) favourite literature on the utterly extraordinary¬†subject matter is compiled with -and of course full of- love. Cringing allowed:
