  1. Reading, The Power of Now, by Eckhart Tolle, currently, which deals with exactly what the title says- the power of the here and now.

    So, my romance is in the here and the now, in a sweet and rustic town in Australia, that I live in. Spring is here and flowers of every hue are dancing in the amber sunlight, while I and my beloved drink up every nuance of being together- from the blissful to the troublesome.

  2. I’m reading Jerusalem – The Biography by Simon Sebag Montefiore. One of the lines early on in the book describes Jerusalem as ‘the house of one God, the capital of two peoples, the temple of three religions and the only city to exist twice – in heaven and on earth: the peerless grace of the terrestrial is as nothing to the glories of the celestial.’ I believe the ‘heavenly’ comparison is reason enough to want to be transported to the intriguing city 🙂

  3. My current read – At present, Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni has kept me hooked with her “The Vine of Desire” , the sequel to “The Sister of my Heart” .

    Oh the silly wanderings of my heart, when I read a good book or watch a beautiful movie. And, given a chance, which romantic location I would escape to? Ah well! Dear one, it has to be the bridge of Amsterdam under which Hazel Grace, and Augustus Walters did spend their lovely time together.
    Why, out of all the places , my heart first thinks of that place? Because, that scene of the novel , as well as of the movie left a deep impression on my heart. That particular moment when Hazel would be just lying her head on Augustus’ shoulder, and he would be happily wrapping her to his skin! Without even looking into each other’s eyes , yet feeling the pace of each other’s heartbeats in your own. That scene is so intimate for me in ways I can’t really explain. For me, that place, that moment will always be a landmark of true love. Love, that overpowers even the most harrowing reality of all, Death.
    I want to live that moment once. I want to be there , sitting in a boat with the one who defines the word “HOME” for me, and breath the same warmth as Hazel and Augustus did once. Yes, it has to be the bridge in Amsterdam. And, it will be, one fine day. <3

  4. Currently reading – 20 Love Poems Ever by Rabindranath Tagore

    There are many places which carry the air of love, but one place which I feel will be transported to is Kasauli which has to offer a clear blue sky, the chirping of birds, pleasant evenings to bring out the love and romance.

  5. “Far From the Madding Crowd” by Thomas Hardy (the one that is currently on my hands) might not typically sound as the title of a love story, but it is – that of its leading lady Bathsheba Everdene and her three suitors. It certainly accounts for a very engrossing read and is considered to be a classic not without any reason.
    With the English countryside at the backdrop, it has lots of reference to green hills and valleys and of course, sheep – flock or herd of sheep, indeed. Sheep (and lot of them) grazing across the lush green land of Great Britain surrounded only by the tranquil and beauty of an untainted nature. The leading lady, Bathsheba, while reading the novel, could be easily imagined carrying a sheep in her arms and walking across the green highlands of England, and so does the leading man, Gabriel Oak –who is shown to be a very good carer of sheep. The setting of the novel, apart from its intriguing characters, and the intricacy of their relationship, also draws the reader to the wonderful rural area of the West.
    While going around Wales and Lake District in the United Kingdom, I could imagine what landscape the writer must have envisioned while penning this fantastic tale. Also, I could spot a couple of rare ‘Black sheep’ as well, reminding me of the English phrase: “the Black sheep of the family”.

  7. I’m reading “On Writing” by Stephen King and I don’t mind being transported to one of the beaches of Miami. I’d be lounging on a beach chair, basking in the September sun, a Pinacolada in hand and the DH by my side, romanticising me and whispering sweet nothings.
