There’s no doubt about it, Molly Ringwald is best known for her work as a young actress in John Hughes films like Pretty In Pink, Sixteen Candles, and The Breakfast Club. Despite a steady acting career since, Ringwald will always be best known for the films she starred in during the mid-’80s. Of course, this doesn’t seem to bother the actress too much, and she’s even branched out into other areas, writing both a non-fiction book about finding "the pretty" (Getting The Pretty Back), and a book of short stories (When It Happens To You). Still an icon, Ringwald has done her fair share of literary adaptations as well, from comics and horror to YA adaptations in the works. And we’ve got the best of them here for you.

Valentine’s Day is fast approaching, and while that might mean fancy dinner dates for some, for others there is nothing more romantic than curling up on the couch with some popcorn and bad TV. Romantic comedies are an obvious choice for February the 14th, and many less cheese-inclined lovers are choosing to indulge in horror flicks, but we’ve got another suggestion for your V-Day viewing: terrible reality shows about love.

On this, the day of love, it’s important to remember that this day doesn’t just have to be about love that’s shared in a romantic relationship. Arguably, self-love is the most important kind of love.
Without further ado, here are some beautiful, strong women who decided they were better off alone than with their significant other.

We all have one. The woman who knows we need a hug before we even say a word. The friend whose texts always seem to come at the right time. The confidant who always happens to be reading the same book as us. Our Galentine. And while we’re happy to shower this friend with gifts every February 13th, this year we’re stepping up our game with book recommendations for an incredible two-person book club – guaranteed. It’s a Galentine’s Day you’ll both remember for years to come.
