Friday Fun: TGIF at Gread & FF |8|

Love Stories: What are some of your favorite fictional love stories?
Oh lord, we're gonna be here ALL DAY! Romance is my favorite genre, so I can talk about this non stop! Here are some of my all time favorite romances that I will never forget! If you like any of these also or have suggestions for, TELL ME!

 Perfect Chemistry by Simone Elkeles- how can I even put this in words? I love the banter between the love interests. How their relationship started out more of "I hate you, get away!" but it progressed and developed in a nice pace to something deep. Hands down, my favorite relationship ever.
 In no particular order:
Saving June by Hannah Harrington- the perfect mix of angst and funny, this is a relationship that started out as nothing and slowly turned to something beautiful through a road trip and music talk. As Harper and Jake sped to their California destination, I felt how much their relationship was growing.
Fixing Delilah by Sarah Ockler- Did I ever think I will see the day that I read a realistic YA romance? the love interest's actually talked about teen matters *GASP!* a weird concept indeed. Teens acting like teens?! UNNATURAL!
Two-Way Street by Lauren Barnholdt- a hilarious tale of rediscovering love. I never laughed more in laugh and it's all thanks to this book with it's realistic portrayal of the crazy world of adolescences.
Dearly, Departed by Lia Habel- a romance that didn't happen  from the 3rd chapter of the 2nd chapter. Yet another strange concept. The love interest actually toke the time to get to know each other, feel comfortable with each other and their feelings before there was any mention of love. This was the "my heart just skipped a beat at that!" romance.
The Next Door Boys by Jolene B. Perry- ANOTHER fully and realistically developed relationship! We get the sweet agony of reading about the characters interact and just waiting for them to kiss. The build up is great!
There You'll Find Me by Jenny B. Jones- yes, it's a pattern. I love non insta-love romances, I like to see the characters get to know each other, talk, go out, figure their feelings out and all that. I want to see the journey to loving someone instead of having characters fall in love from the first chapter and BA-BAM! here's a romance for you. It should NOT work that way and thank god it doesn't in this book.
Jennifer Echols, MASTER of drama and funny put into romance. To me, her books are like a piece of heavenly red velvet cheesecake that I just want to devour without the civilized manners of using a utensil. Her writing is just perfect and her romances are even more so.

Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead- I wish we saw more of the love interests interacting but boy don't they take soul mates to a whole new level<3
One more Summer by Liz Flaherty- this romance and book in it's entirety, bring tears to my eyes.

 Lisa Kleypas, you creator of the most swoony men, oh how much I love thee♥ Hardy Cates (Blue Eyed Devil hero) is about the greatest fictional man I ever had the pleasure of reading about. Same goes for Gage & Jack Tavis. Who doesn't love real men? and since this is a romance segment, great men aside, the romance is also is equally out of the world in all these 3 books.
Q: What would your prefer: reading your favorite book over and over again until you got sick of it OR reading 100s of mediocre books? And why?
Reading is essential for me, like water. I have to have it to survive. I don't drink it out of fun though, it doesn't make me happy and it doesn't leave me stratified. Red bull though, will do ALL that and more. It will literally give me wings with every sip I take I will have a grin on my face! So will I pick boring water to drink everyday out of necessity or Red bull out of satisfaction and pleasure? Red bull for the win. Favorite books for the win. With me, it's either all or nothing so why read books that don't fill me up (talking about the metaphorical reading stomach here xD) when I can read books that can make me throw up from goodness? this shouldn't even be question.
