There’s All Kinds of #CrazyLove in Books

Crazy Love

Crazy Love

It’s not that I don’t love romance books – I do – but I’m also fascinated by crazy and weird love in books. Here are a few examples of the good stuff – #crazygoodlove – #crazyweirdlove – and the #crazyloveofcrazies.

Crazy Good Love

The Shoemaker’s Wife, Adriana Trigiani is an epic love story. It follows Ciro and Enza from their chance meetings when they were kids growing up in Italy, to when they met again and again as adults who had emigrated to NY, eventually falling in love and building a life together. This a deep, detailed, wonderful journey, rich in history, sometimes sad, but always … always beautiful.

Crazy Weird Love

If you look at my post on Weird Love Interests in Books – you’ll see books were a woman falls in with a void; one even has a sexual relationship with a chimp. I dub these … #crazyweirdlove

Crazy Love … Will Fuck You Up!

Oh these books – sometimes I just didn’t know what to feel. Did the victims deserve what they got when they cheated? I dunno. All I know is that I loved reading them – books liked Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn and The Silent Wife by A.S.A. Harrison. Check out #CrazyLove Will Fuck you Up {A Reading List}.

Crazy Stupid … Or Rather I Was Crazy Stupid For Reading This

Sigh … Why We Broke Up, Daniel Handler. I must have been out of my mind to read a book about a 3-month love affair between 2 teenagers. It was a diary-like accounting by Min after she and her boyfriend broke up. Maybe this is intended solely for teenagers EXCEPT I would NEVER advise a teenage girl to give a letter to an ex-boyfriend detailing all the things she thought and all the obsessive things she did during their relationship!

Crazy Love Makes You Do Crazy Things

In Before I Go To Sleep by S.J. Watson, Christine Lucas, a 47 year old woman who suffered a terrible accident twenty years ago that caused an anomaly with her memory – every morning she wakes up not knowing who she is. I don’t want to give anything away with this book, so all I’m going to say is I loved it – and it shows just how far some people will go for love.

Have you read any of these books? Do you have any recommendations for books with crazy love? Or for anyone in #crazylove.
