Valentine's Day is a week away. Which novels or comics are your favorite love stories? What would you recommend most highly?

On the other hand, which love stories do you think are the worst?

Amber Brown (ambernevabrown) Aimee & Jaguar is wonderful (but depressing as hell) -- about a Jewish woman and Nazi's wife who fall in love.
The Princess Bride is a given.
I enjoyed the Matched trilogy and My Name is Memory. they're my guilty pleasure love stories.

While I love The Great Gatsby, I laugh at people who consider it a "great love story".

My absolute worst love story is Romeo and Juliet, for essentially the same reason yours is The Great Gatsby...
