Bustle had 13 romance writers recommend their favourite love stories, and they’ve picked everything from literary classics to brand-new releases.
For some, their favourite love stories came from non-romance novels. Casey McQuiston loved Evelyn and Celia’s relationship in The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo, and Soniah Kamal can’t get enough of Lata’s romances with Kabir and Haresh in A Suitable Boy.
I was asked to share my choice and I chose Ayesha at Last by Uzma Jalaluddin.
“My favorite love story is Ayesha at Last by Uzma Jalaluddin, which is a fresh yet faithful spin on the Elizabeth and Darcy’s classic hate-to-love romance in Pride and Prejudice. Ayesha and Khalid are both fun, complex and completely loveable characters, which makes their romantic tension and blossoming love all the more satisfying.”
