Valentine's Day Book Tag!

~*~BOOK TAG~*~
1. First Book Crush

Harry Potter! I was in love with Harry when I was young! :) 

2. What book would you want as your valentine?
The Mediator series by Meg Cabot. I LOVE these books and the characters within them. I still want more Suze and Jesse! 

3. What book would you gift to your true love? OR, because I personally had trouble coming up with one... Who is your favorite True Love couple?
Tracy and Dominic from Whisper of Eternity by Amanda Ashley! If you've been wanting to get into AA's books, this is a really good one to start with! Unlike most of her books, this book is a standalone.

4. Relationship you really wanted to happen, but didn't.
I have a few for this because I couldn't pick one.... 
---- Naru & Mai from Ghost Hunt (manga and anime)
I've watched the anime MULTIPLE times and I finally got to read the manga last year... and it still sucks that their relationship never happened.

---- Kel & Dom from Tamora Pierce's Protector of the Small series
---- Tris & Keth from Tamora Pierce's Emelan Universe series
I realize she's only either 14 or 16 during Shatterglass... but so far, there's been no hints of that relationship happening now that she's older... and I doubt there will be since Tris is going off to university in the upcoming book and they'll be separated for quite a long time. :( 

5. Favorite Romance Genre
Paranormal romance, usually. Vampires, Witches, Psychics, Mediums... I love it all!

6. Favorite Romance Plot
True Love and Soul Mates... when the characters seem DESTINED for one another.

7. Favorite Book OTP (One True Pairing)
Bella and Edward from Twilight. Yeah, I'd like I've branched out and found an OTP I like more than B & E, but I haven't. I have other OTPs, just none that surpass B & E.

8. Favorite Angsty Romance
The Best of Me by Nicholas Sparks. Still the only Sparks book I've read... but it TORE my heart out! 

9. Favorite Feel Good Romance
Hawksong by Amelia Atwater-Rhodes. I've really not sure why I'm picking this... there's quite a lot of horrible things that happen around them and their relationship, but still... there's something about them overcoming it all and growing to love one another despite believing they never would that makes me pick it for this. 

10. Favorite Guilty Pleasure Romance
Eona by Alison Goodman. But it's not the romance that makes me feel guilty... it's the fact that I KEEP re-reading it every few months despite all the many, many, MANY books and ffn on my TBRs!

11. Favorite Rom-Com
Vampire Kisses series by Ellen Schreiber. This series is brilliantly funny... Raven's way of looking at the world is rather unique. (The Mediator series is also a fav rom-com... but I already used it!)

12. Favorite Sad Romance
The Fault in Our Stars by John Green... another that TORE my heart out!

13. Favorite STEAMY Romance
Yeah, this is hard... I've read a lot. But I'd say my favorites are 
---- Midnight Embrace and Whisper of Eternity by Amanda Ashley 
---- And Sword of Darkness and The Brotherhood/Macallister series by Kinley Macgregor. Oh, wait... her Sea Wolves series too... pretty much ANY book from Kinley Macgregor (also known as Sherrilyn Kenyon!)
---- oh, and I have to at least MENTION the Portland Rebels series from Rebecca Grace Allen. They are rather recent favorites

14. Favorite Controversial/Forbidden/Star-Crossed Couple
Kaitlin and Bram in Scribbler of Dreams by Mary E. Pearson 
They have a Romeo&Julliet type theme... their families hate one another... especially after Kaitlin's father goes to prison for the death of Bram's father. 

1. First FFN Crush
Liberated Aficionado by Queen-Cocaine
When I started reading fanfiction, I read primarily Tamora Pierce fanfiction... the earliest crush I remember was on Numair in L.A. I think it was the nipple piercing... lol
the outtakes are necessary... it has the lemons!

2. What FFn would you want as your Valentine?
The Trip Home fics by MSKathy... for... reasons... ;) 

3. What FFn relationship would you want with your true love?
Bella and Edward from Written in the Stars by Lissa Bryan!
literally star-crossed, sweet, but passionate!

4. Relationship you want to happen in a fic that you haven't read before.
For some reason, I really like the idea of Marcus and Renee in a vamp fic.... I dunno why. I finally read a fic where Charlie is turned into a vampire and I really like the idea of Marcus finding another mate in Renee and her also be turned so the family can be together. Plus, I've read fics where Marcus has like a fatherly role for Bella or Edward, so I really like that idea.

5. Favorite Genre of Romance
Paranormal Romance

6. Favorite Romance Plot
Soul Mates and Imprint stories, of any kind! Human, Vampire, Witch... love them! I've been reading Human Imprint stories lately, fics where humans have the ability to imprint on other humans. There are some really good ones out there, if you've not checked them out, I really recommend it!

7. Favorite FFn OTP (One True Pairing)
Bella and Edward, of course!

8. Favorite Angst Romance
Emancipation Proclamation by Kharizzmatik. 
Holy Hell, the angst! But I love it... re-read it half a dozen times!

9. Favorite Feel-Good Romance
Geek Love by Sassenach Wench
There is some angst and a bad past, but this romance is pretty funny and lighthearted, as far as I can remember. 

10. Best romantic gift in a FFn OR because I couldn't think of one off the top of my head, Favorite Guilty Pleasure Romance
Master of the Universe by Snowqueens Icedragon
It's not a relationship I think anyone should strive for, their relationship in the first half of the story is quite unhealthy, but I KEEP coming back to it. I keep being pulled back into the angst and the emotion of this harrowing love story. I think there are a lot of misunderstanding about this fic, and it's marketed in the wrong way -I don't think of it as a BDSM erotic romance, to me it's a harrowing love story about an abused man who finds salvation and selflove when he falls in love with someone else-, and I still love it and still find myself re-reading it every now and then.

11. Favorite Rom-Com
Fanfiction, Sex Gods, and Single Girls by bannerday
This fic had me literally LOLing!

12. Favorite Sad Romance
Secrets and Lies by BellaScotia
but not because of the romance... because I *SPOILER!!!!!* literally cried when Charlie died. :( :( :( :( :( 

13. Favorite Steamy Romance
This was pretty tough to pick, there are so many! But I'd have to say... 
Nova by Cupcakeriot! 
If you've read it, you know what I mean when I say that their three day lovefest was AMAZINGLY hot!

14. Favorite Controversial/Forbidden/Star-Crossed Couple
University of Edward Masen by Sebastien Robichaud
I picked this one because their relationship is rather forbidden... given he's her professor and the school as rules against it
