Twenty top contemporary love stories

At the Waterstones blog, Mark Skinner tagged twenty great contemporary love stories, including:
The Rosie Project
Graeme Simsion

A wonderfully uplifting romantic comedy that has spawned two hugely successful sequels, The Rosie Project introduces Don Tillman, obsessively organized yet perennially unlucky in love. Through a narrative that alternates hysterical humour with profoundly touching drama, Simsion’s delightful novel charms and amuses on every page.
Read about another entry on the list.

The Rosie Project is among McKenzie Jean-Philippe's twenty greatest ever romance novels, Martha Greengrass's ten books for fans of Gail Honeyman's debut novel Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine, Jemma Forte's top ten books about love, and Bill Gates's nine favorite books.
