6 Popular "Love" Stories That Are Not Actually Love Stories

I enjoy a good love story as much as the next lovelorn loser who has to live vicariously through fiction, but you know what I don’t enjoy? Books that have been WILDLY MISCONSTRUED as love stories but are not actually all that romantic if you think about them for more than a few seconds. Newsflash, society: just because two people make out doesn’t necessarily mean the story’s a romantic one.
