Hey, guys! I saw this tag going on and wanted to do it since I love OTP’s, and when I got tagged by Calliope (@calliopethebookgoddess) (Thanks, love & everyone check out her blog! Her reviews are fantastic!), I already had my answers ready haha. Let’s begin, shall we?
Your favorite book couple.
That’s a really REALLY tough one so I’m going to say my most recent favorite book couple and that has to be, Liam and Melody from Ruthless People series. They’re the reason why ‘ruthless’ ‘king & queen’ even became words. I love love love them, and I have no doubt in my mind that whoever reads this, won’t either.
“Why were our lives so fucking complicated? All I wanted to do was sell drugs, make love to my wife, and rule in peace.”
Your top 3 book boy/girlfriends
- Melody (Ruthless People): READ the series! Everyone says they love a ‘bad ass heroine’, but you haven’t seen badass until you’ve met Melody.
- “Liam, get your horny fucking ass out of bed and help me kill a bitch!” she yelled.”
- Gaby (Rhythm, Chord & Malykhin): Ugh, Rhythm, Chord & Malykhin is so underrated that it makes me mad. I love Gaby and how she’s just like one of the guys. Gaby will draw you in with her sarcasm, humor, and tomboyish ways.
- “Look like a hooker or look like a hooker. I went with the latter.”
- Isis (Love me Never (Lovely Vicious, #1): OMG! This is my wife! She’s the cutest, wittiest, sarcastic, weak but strong minded, weird human being you’ll ever meet. She’ll make you laugh at things you’d never think would get you to laugh, and she’ll also warm your heart.
- “I would love to slap you right now, but I’m currently wielding a nine pound ball and I’m afraid that would be called murder.”
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?)
Since Liam and Melody were forced to be married and everything was arranged I’ll have to go off of if they never met. In my head this is how it would go, after Liam and Melody were having sex, Liam would out of nowhere saying “Marry me, Melody?”. Melody would look at him with disgust and refuse, and Liam would continue with “You’re going to marry me”. Which only will make Melody furious and she would somehow find a gun and try to shoot him, and he’d end up being on top of her saying “I wasn’t asking that time. You’re going to marry me, Mel.”(IM GOING TO REREAD THE SERIES! #WITHDRAWLS). Organizing the wedding? Hmmmmmm, I would say Liam would do because no way in hell would Melody be doing it, haha OR Cora would organize the wedding!
Unpopular opinions time! Name a popular pairing you can’t stand.
I read Maze Runner and watched the movie, and I just couldn’t feel anything between Thomas and Teresa. I honestly, still enjoyed the book and movie but couple wise. Thomas and Teresa just aren’t doing it for me. But, Dylan O’Brien (Thomas) you’re doing it for me 😉
What’s your favorite and least favorite romance trope?
Favorite: I love the friend/stranger slow(not too slow though) buildup to love! I love reading a book and two strangers, or friends are just there for each other, and we get to grow attached to them individually and when the love does happen it just makes everything so much better
Least: insta freaking love. I
hate dislike it! I would appreciate it if they didn’t just see each other for the first time and wind up saying, “I love her “i love him” like come on! I can handle SOME insta-love stories, but the majority of them are ridiculous like at least let them go through some shit before they fall in love or at least let the readers feelings for them catch up before the characters love each other after page.10.
Do you ship non-canon couples often? Name some if you do.
Stiles & Derek = Sterek (Teen Wolf)
If you watch Teen Wolf then you understand 😉
My babies! ♥
Your opinion on love triangles. Go!
No (UNLESS THE AUTHOR DOES THEM RIGHT). That’s my opinion on love triangles… “No.” I don’t like having anxiety and getting mad whenever the person I want the Hero or Heroine to be with doesn’t end up with. Just, no…. Okay, sometimes they aren’t all so bad but I do like having my heart intact so I try to avoid them as much as possible (kinda).
Love/hate relationship with them 🙂
Favorite and least favorite love triangle?
My answer to both of these questions is Vampire Diaries. I watch the show and started reading the books years ago but just preferred the show. Elena annoyed the hell out of me, but I love Stefan and Damon. I was always #teamstefan but lately I’ve been #teamdamon only because Elena is dead (half true) and I don’t have to watch her flip-flop anymore. I hated seeing Stefan and Damon hurt and crying over her because they are my babies. I was #teamstefan because I just loved how he was with her and even after she left him he always stuck by her side. I became #teamdamon way later in the season.
side note: Stefan started annoying me a tad especially with Caroline
I’m #teamdamon because I loved the way he loved Elena with such passion (kind of want him with Bonnie, though… ok now I’m flip-flopping), and he’d end the world if she’d ask him to.
Favorite & Least:
SOMETIMES ROMANCE JUST ISN’T THE WAY TO GO. FAVORITE FRIENDSHIP?
I loved their friendship so much,
Harry Potter and Hermione.
What’s your favorite scene with your bookish OTP?
hehe, this question makes me so happy because there are SO many scenes I want to put right now but I’ll just settle for one of my favorites 😉
“That ticks me off!” She snapped. “Since when could you bribe me with treats like a fucking child.”
I groaned, pinching the bridge of my nose. “So no smoothie then?”
“Mango, banana, orange and extra kiwi,” she replied before hanging up.”
Imagine your favorite book couple again. Who’s most excited about Valentine’s Day (either ironically or genuinely)?
Hahaha Liam would be so much more excited for Valentine’s Day because he’d be able to do something romantic for Melody like a date without her putting up a fight or refusing.
