Hello there, lovely reader!
Happy February 14th, also known as Valentine's Day! I'm not too big on V-Day but I saw Margot over on the Epic Reads channel on YouTube do this fun book tag themed around Valentine's Day so I though, hey, let's do it! Let's see how many times I'll managed to say Valentine's day in one blog post.
I think my first ever book crush was, and I really don't like to say it, Edward Cullen from the Twilight Saga by Stephanie Meyer. This was the first YA quartet I ever read, which also got me truly into reading, so, no matter how differently I feel about these books and characters now, years later, it's thanks to them that I love reading as much as I do now. 13/4 year old Alice LOVED Edward to a weird extent so let's not talk about that too much!
If you've been around for a while, let's see if you can guess which book I could have possibly chosen for this question...3...2...1... The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin, obviously. I love this book, I love the characters and the creepy atmosphere, and Noah Shaw is like one of my two fictional boyfriends (yes I can't decide, I'm sorry) so of course I couldn't have chosen any other book. Besides, you know me, I'll always find a way to squeeze this book in because I just love it that much.
Cupcakes. Or doughnuts. ;)
4. What book would you gift to your true love?
Besides the Mara Dyer trilogy, I'd say I'd give my true love The Prom Goer's Interstellar Excursion by Chris McCoy because it's just a really hilarious book that's different from most things I've read and I would love to share it with someone I love. There is so much craziness going on inside that book that I' sure he'd enjoy it so, that's my choice.
5. Favorite Rom-com
10 Things I Hate About You. Love that movie so, so much. I mean, who doesn't love that embarrassingly cute while also slightly cringeworthy scene of Heith Ledger strolling along the bleachers while singing a song over the schools speakers for Bianca, played by Julia Stiles. I'm not the biggest fan of rom-com's but this one is amazing, every single time you watch it.
6. Best Valentine's Day gift you ever received (or want to receive)
I've never had a boyfriend during Valentine's day, and I also happen to not really care much about it, so I've never received anything, but if I'd have to choose something that I would like to get, then I'd say a book, because books are awesome no matter what day of the year it is.
7. Favorite thing about Valentine's Day (if you love it) OR favorite thing to do on Valentine's Day (if you hate it)
I am truly indifferent toward Valentine's day. I don't love it, I don't hate it, I just don't care so my favorite thing to do is stick to what I do any other day, so continue writing, prepare some interview questions, or binge watch some videos on YouTube.
Also, I want to share a song with you that is very lovely, contains the magical three words and is very cute, nice and just a little bit sad. It's actually a cover by Gerard Way, whom some of you may know as the former lead singer of My Chemical Romance (still not over it), and it's magnificent. So treat yourself to some wonderful tunes right here.
And that's it, that was the Valentine's Day Book TAG. I've managed to say Valentine's day a total of 9 times, which is 8 too much as for my liking. Anyways, I hope you enjoyed and, if you want to do this TAG too, leave me a comment down below (or tweet me a link @Alice_Reeds) so I can check out your answers!
