EVERY day is the perfect time to celebrate love, and there is nothing more beautiful than to celebrate it with great love books. I have a goal for 2019 to read at least two books a month, so I made a list of books that I would love to read. So it came to me that it is about time to share some great books with you, and maybe encourage you to start reading more.
I have always loved books, and I really couldn’t imagine a weekend or a vacation without a book in my hands. Book lovers would understand me. It’s the era of videos, and I am aware that people are reading less because of the numerous number of videos everywhere. You can have fun watching movies, videos, tutorials, etc., but it is not the same as reading a book. Reading develops the imagination, and this is the main reason to read more and watch less. And while there are several good reasons why reading is so important, in my mind, the most important one is that it develops the mind.
In this post, I would love to share with you eight love books that will change your love perception and life. There are dozens of love books out there, and I am sure you already have at least two in

Brida – Paulo Coelho
The master storyteller and my favorite author Paulo Coelho is the one that I will recommend most here and always. His books are fun, magical, exciting and have a unique story that will open your eyes. The first book that made me fall in love with Coelho is The Alchemist. I was 12 years old and fascinated by the story. Although, The Alchemist is a life-changing book, the first book that came in my mind from Coelho that have changed my love perception was Brida.
Brida is a book about soulmates, love, life,
Adultery – Paulo Coelho
I told you that my favorite author is Coelho. I love all his books. In 2014 he published Adultery – the novel that many psychologists like. It is a book about depression, apathy, love, intimacy and much more. This is the book that I always recommend to people that has no energy in their relationships. Why? It is a story about a woman that explores what it means to be happy. If you want a book that is fun to read with a great story but also to learn more about love, happiness, and depression – this is the perfect match. Adultery is in my opinion, one of his best books.
Eleven Minutes – Paulo Coelho
And yes, the first three books on my list are from Coelho. But I love his style, and I love books that are entertaining but bring a great message to the reader. Eleven Minutes is very famous, and there is a good reason for it. Every time I read this book, I realize something different, and that is the main reason I put it on this list. Yes, I read one book several times if I like it. 🙂
It is a story about a young girl from Brazil who goes to search for her fortune in Switzerland. If you love books, please read this one and let me know what you think. The story is terrific, and Coelho made this book a masterpiece.
No one loses anyone, because no one owns anyone. That is the true experience of freedom: having the most important thing in the world without owning it.
When I had nothing to lose, I had everything. When I stopped being who I am, I found myself.
The 5 Love Languages – Gary Chapman
Dr. Gary Chapman is someone I admire. He is the author of many books and I want to read them all. The Five Love Languages is the best book about love and marriage. His writing style is straightforward and effortless, and this book is educational with real-life stories as examples. Something I really like in this book is that it is eyeopening. If you want to save your relationship, found out what you love, explore love, and find out what your children like – read this book. I can’t express enough gratitude to Dr. Gary Chapman for writing this book. You can also discover your love language and even the love language of your child here.
There is something about this book that is very special and I know that you will enjoy it.
The Art Of Loving – Erich Fromm
This is a book I read in my first year in University that has totally changed my perception of love, The Art Of Loving by Erick Fromm. Erich Fromm was a social psychologist and humanistic philosopher. In this book, he explained love in details and how we develop the skill to love.
In this book, he presents 4 basic love elements: care, responsibility, respect,
I recommend you to read this book in order to learn more about love, unconditional love, and self-love.
Why We Love? – Helen Fisher
This book is not a novel, and not so entertaining, but it is beneficial and educational. Helen Fisher is an anthropologist and she offers a very different approach and research. It won’t be fun if I tell you the story, so if you are interested in love, why we love, what happens in our brain, and in our bodies – read this book. You will be surprised, and I am sure that this love book will change your love perspective a lot.
Being In Love – Osho
If you want to live happily, if you are into personal development, self-love and living a mindful life, don’t forget Osho. Being in love: How to Love with Awareness and Relate Without Fear is a book about love without jealousy or possessiveness. You will find much beneficial information in this book, and I am sure that it will change your love perspective.
Everybody is interested in getting, and nobody seems to enjoy giving.
How To Love – Thich Nhat Hanh
Thich Nhat Hanh is a Zen master and a spiritual leader. He is the best teacher if you want to learn mindfulness, mindful living, and self-love. Bear in mind that this wonderful man has over 100 books. Is it possible to love someone else if you don’t love yourself? How To Love will give you more answers than you can imagine, but also it is an excellent gift for someone you love.
These were my top eight love books that changed my love life. I hope you will find them useful too. There are a million other books out there that I am sure are great, and I would love to hear some suggestions from you. Are there any love books that changed your love perception?
