Valentine's Day. 

A holiday that oozes hugs, kisses, hearts, glitter, red, pink, and sweets...lots and lots of sweets.

Though I love each and everyone of those things, the thought of reading about them over and over again from now until February 14th makes me want to gag!  I don't know about you, but I can only take the overtly mushy gushy traditional Valentine's stuff in small daily doses.   So, for myself and any of you who are just like me, I have come up with a list of 10 unconventional Valentine's Day books that put a fun twist on this romantic holiday; making it very easy for you to enjoy reading them over and over again!

Here ya go!
