Our fourth and final Valentine’s Day bundle is for the Lovey-Dovey Couple: they are so schmoopy that reading poetry to each other is neither cliché nor unwelcome. To help them celebrate the holiday that was made for them, we present two potently romantic collections.

In Islands of Decolonial Love (ARP Books), Leanne Simpson captures the profound and beautiful feelings of love while also incorporating the everyday lives and struggles of Anishinaabe people and their history. For the lovey-dovey couple, Simpson’s description of love at first sight will make your heart smile.

Finally, Barry Dempster’s  Love Outlandish (Brick Books) is the book of poetry for the lovey-dovey couple that has heard all the clichés. Dempster unpacks these and explores them anew. As you read the poems to each other, you’ll be able to recognize yourself in the words that get to the heart of the heart.

Best of all: reading these books together means spending more time with your favourite person! Are you part of a lovey-dovey couple? Buy our specially-priced bundle here (and use those savings toward a special romantic surprise for your SO).
