Hello guys! Today I’m doing a Valentine’s themed book tag created by Anette @Anette Reads, who was super cool to tag me. If you haven’t checked out her blog yet, I suggest that you do it ;-). Ok, let’s do The Book Love Tag!
1. Your favorite book couple.
I have too many! I’m going to go with Warner and Juliette from the Shatter Me trilogy. Ignite Me was perfection for me just because of these two <3!!!
2. Your top 3 book boy/girlfriends.
▫ Jem Carstairs (The Infernal Devices) – Jem was the first!
▫ Rowan Whitethorne (Throne of Glass series) – Made the list as soon as he appeared in Heir of Fire :D.
▫ Garrett Graham (The Deal) – This is a recent one… but what can I say? 😍😍😍
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?)
Back to Warnette then… ok Warner would totally propose – I’m not sure that Juliette even understands the concept fully. In my mind, he has had the ring for ages, but instead of doing it “right”, he would just blurt it out, in the most awkward and incoherent way possibly, probably during or after sex (because they spend most of their time in bed anyway). That’s how I imagine it :D. It would be cute as hell though, because it’s Warner, and Juliette is everything to him.
Oh, wow. I don’t think I have an answer for this one… how about I tell you a couple that I do like, but not as much as 99% of the people do? Will that work? Ok then… Celaena and Sam Cortland. I loved them together, sure, but I don’t think they were right for each other at all. That’s why I’m kind of glad that he died… =/
5. What’s your favorite and least favorite romance trope?
Oh my gosh… I have so many favorites!!! I’m a sucker for enemies turned lovers though, and if there’s a step in the middle where they are super friends, all the better. Wallbanger and The Deal do this so good! That’s probably why I loved both books so much :D.
My least favorite is probably insta-love. It’s not that I don’t like it, if done well, it can totally work, because people are attracted to each other at first sight. But more often than not is not done very well :(.
6. Do you ship non-canon couples often? Name some if you do.
I usually don’t. I’ve a very canon type of girl :D. I did ship Haymitch and Effie on The Hunger Games trilogy, so I was super glad that one particular scene was added to Mockingjay pt 2. I was also shipping Rowaelin when they were still claiming to be friends and nothing more, but I was so sure that it would evolve :D.
7. Your opinion on love triangles. Go!
Love triangles… hmmmm…. if done right, I love them! The problem for me is when it’s so obvious that one of the members is just a filler.
8. Favorite and least favorite love triangle?
My absolutely favorite, obviously, is Will/Tessa/Jem triangle of The Infernal Devices. I love it! It’s so well done, because both guys are equally deserving, and you totally understand what she sees in each of them. Better yet, Jem and Will love each other, they love each other so much that they’re more than willing to step aside to let the other one be happy. ❤ I love them!
Least favorite… hmmmm…. The Hunger Games? What was even that? Why was Gale even considered a love interest?
9. Sometimes romance just isn’t the way to go. Favorite friendship?
I’m going to redirect you to a post I did last week about Boys/Girls platonic friendships in books, ok? Here it is. Juliette and Kenji from the Shatter Me trilogy are probably my faves though :D.
10. What’s your favorite scene with your bookish OTP?
Chapter 62 of Unravel Me… not saying anything else!
11. Imagine your favorite book couple again. Who’s most excited about Valentine’s Day (either ironically or genuinely)?
Oh, does Valentine’s Day still exist after everything that went on? Ok then. I would say that Warner is probably more excited about it, he likes to surprise and do things for Juliette, so I think that would definitly have something very special prepared for her.
