Valentine’s Day 2015 is nearly here. That means there are overzealous romantic displays or bouquets of flowers showing up everywhere. But, there is still fun to be had on this day of romance. I mean, come on fellow book addicts, we can always read a book with a lovely romance or a fictional crush. *wink* Plus, I will admit to decorating my bookshelves with paper hearts. Clearly, I have way too much free time. Or can enjoy a romantic-comedy and a nice meal. On this day before Valentine’s, I thought I’d share a kind of “round up” of fun Valentine things.
All Things Bookish
First, in case you missed it and want to curl up with a good read, I put together a Top List over on Silver Petticoat. The topic? Favorite contemporary romances. I had a great time putt this together and if you’d like to chime in with your favorites, have a look at the list. A photo posted by Rissi (@rissi006) on Jan 28, 2015 at 10:36am PST

In case you missed the #ShareYourHeart campaign with Tyndale House and author Courtney Walsh, here is the darling video she put together as promotion of her novel, Paper Hearts! How cute is it, right!?
Makes me want to read this one all the more.
Romantic Comedies and Valentines Day Fun 2015
Also over on Silver Petticoat, I put together a list of 15 favorite Hallmark movies. These are the ones that I enjoy re-watching, but what about you?

Below is a list of favorite romantic comedies. Many of which I don’t mind admitting, I’ve seen several times.
I do adore this film. All of the wacky dresses its heroine wears, the banter and of course, the fabulous (complete) ending. This is definitely one I’ve watched time and again.
Only recently did I finally re-watch this (I’d bought a copy but hadn’t seen it since the theater) and golly, I loved it even more the second time through. The wit, the humor, the characters… it’s all the makings of a special yet quirky kind of movie.
Though not my favorite ever, this film is cute in its own way. Based on the novel by Alex Flinn, as its title would suggest, it’s a re-telling of Beauty and the Beast.
It hardly seemed right to pull together a few romances (even if I am focusing on contemporary romantic comedies) without putting a classic on the list. Of the adaptations I’ve seen, this one is my favorite thus far.
2015 may not be a leap year, but this darling film is always in style. Between Amy Adams and Matthew Goode’s bickering and banter and the fun Irish humor, it’s a must any time.
Fell in love with this movie some five years ago and still love it. It’s sappy, yes, but that’s part of its charm.
One of my favorites. Sandra Bullock and Ryan Reynolds are hilarious.
