TGIF is a weekly feature created and hosted by GReads! that re-caps the week’s posts and has different question each week.

Mr & Mrs: Who are your favorite book couples?

Jamie & Claire–Outlander by Diana Gabaldon

Could there be a more epic romance in all of time?! The answer, to me, is no. Jamie and Claire have a relationship that transcends time and space!! They have the relationship I want. It’s just beautiful and deep. Le sigh.

Georgina & Seth–Succubus Blues by Richelle Mead

Seth is an author. Georgina’s favorite series is written by him. Their meeting each other is BY FAR my most favorite encounter EVER!! It is horrifyingly embarrassing for Georgina and a total self-esteem booster for Seth. You HAVE to read it! It is epic! This relationship is full of longing and heartache, but I love it.

Irial & Niall–Wicked Lovely series by Melissa Marr

Oooh…the Princes of Darkness!! These two will slay you with their fierceness…and sexiness. Rawr! These two have the most intense relationship! The fact that they are sexy and deadly, but love with such an intensity is what makes them so appealing to me. I think especially Irial. He’s loved Niall all these centuries, even when Niall refused to even talk to him. And now, they are both together in the Dark Court and Niall could not live without Irial, even if he tried.

Cat & Bones–Night Huntress series by Jeaniene Frost

OMG! These two…I love how funny they are! And, not going to lie, if I could get trap Bones somewhere and keep him all to myself, I totally would because he’s the sexiest British vamp around! I am in awe of how unconditionally Bones loves Cat. She can do some really dumb things sometimes, most of it self-sabotage, and yet he’s there for her, always.

Rose & Dimitri–Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead

When nothing can keep two people apart, when the connection is so strong you’re able to find that person wherever they may be…that is love. Or some kind of telepathic powers. No, no…it’s love, I’m sure of it. :) These two have that!!

Remy & Dexter–This Lullaby by Sarah Dessen

Ok, so maybe I love Dexter more than Remy and that’s why they’re on this list. I do what I want!! :P

ACK! Your favorite book/movie character just walked into the room! Who is it and what would be your first reaction?

OMG…I’d choose James McAvoy from Atonement (and lots of other movies)!! I think he’s so hot and I love his accent!


Book Blogger Hop

Book Blogger Hop is a weekly meme hosted by Crazy for Books where you have an awesome opportunity to connect with other book lovers, make new friends, support each other, and generally just share our love of books! It will also give blog readers a chance to find other book blogs to read!

What keeps you reading beyond the first few pages of a book, and what makes you want to stop reading a book and put it back on the shelf?

It’s a rare occasion when I put down or give up on a book because I’m not enjoying it. If I’m not feeling it, I set it aside at whatever point I start feeling that way and pick up a different book. I then go back to it at a later time and anytime I’ve done this, I’ve been able to finish that book and like it well enough or love it.
