Hi everyone, how are you in this lovely wednesday? I hope your week was off to a great start! After yesterday’s post about Valentine’s Day reads, I’m not going to stop, and keep on spreading the love during this week…I hope you’re ready!
Since Wednesday is usually the day for book tags, I found that the lovely Anette @ Anette Reads tagged me for the perfect tag today: The book love tag! A great way to spread the love! And, since we’re talking about this, well, if you don’t know her or her blog yet, go check it out right now! Alright, now I’m off to answer some questions…
1. Your favorite book couple.
Okay, this is off to a great start…HOW am I supposed to choose? I absolutely love Mara & Noah from the Mara Dyer series… But Emmy & Oliver were the cutest, too. I really liked the romance in My life next door…I mean, isn’t Jase the greatest? I just, I don’t know how to choose.
2. Your top 3 book boy/girlfriends.
A top THREE? Hm, I really really love Warner, from the Shatter Me series. If you just started reading those books, well you might be hating him right now, but let me reassure you: this won’t last ’til the end. I already talked about him, but Noah Shaw from the Mara Dyer series. I’m a sucker for English accents, I can’t help it. Then I’d probably say Ron Weasley (do I really have to say from which book this ginger cutest guy comes from, and why I love him?
3. Imagine your favorite book couple. Who would propose, and how? (If there’s already been a proposal: who would be more into organizing the wedding?)
Wow, this question is really really hard. I’m going to take a random book couple for that, because, why not? So, hm, Kate and Matthew from The Next Together. I’m taking the 2016 timeline, because it’s much more fun, and I’m saying that, over a fancy dinner at a restaurant where Matthew indeed intended to propose… Well, in the middle of the main course, she just dropped her fork and blandly told him: are you really going to wait for dessert to take out the ring you’ve been carrying around in your pocket? So, yeah. That would be fun.
4. Unpopular opinions time! Name a popular pairing you can’t stand.
I don’t know if they’re really that popular, but I’m thinking about Juliette and Adam from Shatter Me. I just can’t stand Adam, sorry.
5. What’s your favorite and least favorite romance trope?
Okay, my favorite HAS to be where the two are childhood friends, or have been friends for a long time. I think those stories are the cutest, and they always get me.
For my least favorite, I’d say maybe, love triangles? Or a relationship where the other gives herself and who she/he is up for the other. This just annoys me, so much.
6. Do you ship non-canon couples often? Name some if you do.
I’m just going to change from my bookish answers, and ask you: do any of you guys watch Jane, The Virgin? First of all, I LOVE that show. And I kind of ship Michael and Rogelio together. I mean aren’t they SO CUTE?!
7. Your opinion on love triangles. Go!
Okay, I said that love triangles aren’t really my thing a little above. But I guess it’s because it’s become SO common, in books, and shows, and everything, that it just tends to annoy me. BUT there are some love triangles that are especially well-done, and they’re not just there…well, to put another love interest here.
8. Favorite and least favorite love triangle?
I’m going to start by my least favorite, and talk about the whole Katniss/Peeta/Gale mess. I really don’t like this one, because, okay, I love Peeta -I mean, just LOOK at him, he’s like a little puppy-…but mainly because I think, in THIS kind of story, this love triangle just isn’t meant to be here.
For my favorite love triangle, hm, I don’t actually think I HAVE a favorite…since they’re not my favorite trope in the world…
9. Sometimes romance just isn’t the way to go. Favorite friendship?
Ohh, there I could talk about a TON of friendships I loved in books. Juliette and Kenji from the Shatter Me series really are GOALS. Harry and Hermione, too. I really liked the friendships between the whole group of friends in Emmy & Oliver. I LOVED Aristotle and Dante’s friendship, too. Let me apologize for the gif below. I am crying, too.
10. What’s your favorite scene with your bookish OTP?
Ugh, WHY are you doing this to me?! I LOVED the first scene in Emmy & Oliver when Emmy stuck out her tongue to Oliver, haha. This was fun and childish but just, so cute. Is that weird of me to like a scene like that?
11. Imagine your favorite book couple again. Who’s most excited about Valentine’s Day (either ironically or genuinely)?
I’m going to change again, and take…hm, Blair and Nate, from the beginning of the Gossip Girl books -and the show, if you’re more familiar with it. Obviously, Blair is the most excited, and she plans on having the MOST romantic night ever. And obviously, Nate kinds of messes-up everything.
