I know, I know Valentine’s Day was last week but Sophia @ Bookwyrming Thoughts tagged me into this one back in February 2019 and I really wanted to do it on Valentine’s Day but of course I forgot the whole thing in my drafts until Isabelle @ Nine Tale Vixen tagged me this Valentine’s Day.

I don’t know many “cute” couples to be honest but maybe Thorne and Cress. It has been awhile since I read Cress but I read Winter back in 2018 and I love the cuteness we got in that one. Another cute couple I can think of is Kara and Mon-el from Supergirl and I’m still upset they didn’t end up together.
I don’t read many contemporary books, so I’d say Dark In You series by Suzanne Wright. It’s Fantasy book but it focuses a lot in the romance and I wish everyone gave Knox and Harper a change.
Most of the romances I want to toss into the fuck it bucket are in the TV shows (Stefan Salvatore/Caroline Forbes comes first into mind) but I don’t usually hate the ones in books. The ships I usually really dislike are the ones I wish stayed friends like Layla/ Zayne from The Dark Elements. That one was really painful to read when I just needed more Roth content.
Here’s the thing… I actually prefer books where romance overpowers the plot but to name a few (that aren’t contemporary):
- Ice Planet Barbarians by Ruby Dixon
- Lux by Jennifer L. Armentrout
- Black Dagger brotherhood by J.R. Ward
Bloodlines by Richelle Mead. I’m not talking about any certain date but just someone doing something (even if they hated it) to be close to me– I just find that romantic. Like, a man could hate reading but he knows how much I like it, so he’d spend the day reading with me.
OK, this sounds weird but I kinda would’ve wanted some future, possible romance between Prosper and the demon in The Dreadful Tale of Prosper Redding.
Two words: Will. Herondale.
I don’t really have one. Does Tamlin and Nesta from ACOTAR count? I wanted Tamlin to get his redemption story and to get Nesta hell away from all the other character. Since Tamlin has no one, I figured it’s a win-win situation.
Hate is a strong word but I’d probably rather be squished by your TBR than fall in love with Tohrment from Black Dagger Brotherhood. I’d rather not become someone’s shellan who is still morning for someone else. Just no thank you.
Kol Mikaelson from The Originals. Not from a book but his girlfriend would find a way to bring him back, so does it really count?
Never Have I Ever. I’ve never kissed anyone, so Spin the Bottle is out and I’d probably be called chicken for only choosing truth in Truth or Dare.
Vampire. Hybrid. Promise.
First Love. I’d like to experience my first love.
I think it was either Piper/Leo from Charmed or Marissa/ Ryan from The O.C. I’m not big fan of either these days. Actually I don’t like Marissa and Ryan together at all.
I’d get comfortable in my couch and have a soda and something good with me that doesn’t need two hands, probably chocolate. Then I’d spend my self-love date reading books.
Spike plans big romantic gestures while Buffy forgets their anniversary.
- Alexa Riley books
- Ice Planet Barbarians by Ruby Dixon
- Buffy the Vampire Slayer
I don’t really understand the question but I like romantic terms like lover and sweetheart.
It really depends on my mood. Sometimes it’s milk and sometimes white chocolate.
I like Adam French – My Addiction for Roth/Layla from The Dark Elements by Jennifer L. Armentrout.
Try to fight but in the end
Nothing’s making any sense
I started something I can’t quit
Can’t talk myself out of it
How do I get over this?
I remember and I want you again
I remember you walking away
I’m alone now and I can’t take the pain
I know we said we could never
But tell me that it hurts
To be that lonely girl
Why can’t we be together?
Don’t know what I’m thinking of
God, you own me like a drug
My body’s shaking I can’t breathe
This could be the death of me
Wish I begged you not to leave
