Hello Valentines! You are all my Valentines, every single one of you. Yes, even you! I decided that I would do The Valentine’s Day Tag, which I found on BookTube. I don’t know who created this tag, but I first saw Little Book Owl‘s video for this and decided that I’d do it. Now, let’s get on with it!
Favorite Basic Romance Plot
Hmm… I’m not really a romance reader, but I do like it whenever there’s two shy characters who end up together because I just find it adorable, and they usually have the most cutest scenes.
Favorite Classic Romance
Hmm… I don’t read classics much at all, so this will be hard. I guess A Tree Grows in Brooklyn? I don’t know, this is really the only classic book I’ve read with any romance at all. I haven’t read any Jane Austen, who I know has swoon-worthy male love interests or whatever, but I haven’t read any of her books so I can’t say any of them.
Favorite Feel-Good Romance
Ergh this is so hard! I don’t read any romance novels! I guess I would have to go with Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell. I caught myself smiling so widely throughout this book. Eleanor and Park are just an adorable couple.
Favorite Sad Romance
See, a lot of people would probably go with The Fault in Our Stars on this one, but I’ve never read that, just seen the movie so I can’t pick that. Instead, I’ll go with Me Before You by JoJo Moyes. I saw the movie before I read the book and I bawled my eyes out in the theater. I never cry. EVER. But I found myself crying heavy sobs while watching the movie. I did the same with TFIOS, but it wasn’t as intense crying.
Favorite Genre to add Romance to
This one is difficult, you see, because most of the time I find the romance in books useless. I would say contemporary, but most contemporaries have romance as the big plot. I’ll go with Historical Fiction for this one because it’s nice to see what couples in the olden times would do on a date. Plus, the classic love letter sending and all of that is so adorable.
Least Favorite Romance OF ALL TIME
Wow this is hard. Can it be something I haven’t read but have just heard bad things about? If so, then I’d have to say Fifty Shades of Grey. I’ve heard that it’s an abusive and unhealthy relationship, plus I’ve heard the writing is atrocious. And the movie commercials keep on interrupting me on my YouTube binges.
Favorite Literary Couple in General
Hermione Granger and Ron Weasley from the Harry Potter series, no doubt. We got to see their relationship bloom from friendship to couple throughout the series and I love that so much.
If you could have one literary significant other, who would it be?
Yikes, this will be another difficult one! I do, however, have a list of the 5 literary characters I would like as my Valentine here. I guess I’d have to choose Park from Eleanor & Park. He’s nerdy and smart and protective and I think we’d work well together since we have the same genre of interests.
Now, this section will be the non-book related section of the tag.
Do you have a special someone this V-Day?
No, but I do have my best friend Gina. She may be a poodle but she is the best friend I could ever ask for. Plus, she gives amazing hugs.
Favorite V-Day Candy?
Well I never really liked those sugar hearts with little phrases on them because they’re hard and taste of pure sugar and nothing else, but my favorite ‘candy’ would have to be Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. And there are V-Day versions that are hearts, so it counts! And any chocolate, really.
Will you wear red, white, pink, or none of the above on V-Day?
Probably none of the above. I am wearing a pink shirt today, though. I’m not sure what I’m wearing tomorrow but I usually don’t dress up for Valentine’s Day.
Favorite Romance Movie
Well, again, I don’t watch romance movies all that often, but I would have to say Me Before You. It’s just so heartwarming and heartbreaking and cute and funny and ugh I loved it so much.
Favorite love song(s) – May have up to 4 (or more, I really don’t care, just don’t go crazy lol)
For this one I will have to go with any Ed Sheeran song or She Will Be Loved by Maroon 5. I always sang this song when I was younger, it was probably my favorite song growing up. If you asked anybody in my family what song I probably sang the most when growing up, they’d say this song. While I’m reminiscing on my childhood, I’d also like to mention Love Bug by The Jonas Brothers. I also love I Can’t Help Falling in Love With You by Elvis Presley.
Favorite thing about V-Day
Well Valentine’s Day for me has always been about getting candy and chocolate from my parents, so I would have to say that. Nobody needs a significant other when you have chocolate.
What are you doing this V-Day?
Uh… probably school. I never went out and did anything for Valentine’s Day. To be honest, I never thought Valentine’s Day was much of a big deal until this year. I won’t eat any chocolate or sweets because I don’t eat sugar during the week so I can’t say that I’ll be doing that.
So that was the Valentine’s Day Tag! I hope you enjoyed this and if you’d like to do this tag yourself, feel free to do so! What are you doing this Valentine’s Day? Let me know in the comments!
