I love The Blending Blog’s TBB Asks series ( I did their Fall-Themed and Holiday Q&As in 2017), so I figured I’d participate in their February edition: All About Love.
However, I’m just not a huge Valentine’s Day person, and no, this isn’t because one of my bookish boyfriends has yet to knock on my door. I also really won’t be “celebrating” this year because I am not in a relationship at the moment and I also have this thing that keeps away from my blog and books more than I wish called school (honestly by the time you’d expect me to go out, I’d be passed out in bed).
Because of my Valentine’s Day feelings, I am going to be doing this Q &A a bit light-heartingly, while incorporate some humor and fangirl things.
Kisses or Hugs?
Obviously we’re talking about chocolate, specifically Hershey’s, so let’s go with kisses. I love making pretzel hugs using checkered pretzels, kisses, and M&Ms around the holidays.
Candy or Flowers?
I actually not a huge candy person and I can get a little picky about chocolate, so I’d take the flowers.
Baking or cooking?
Baking! I don’t mind cooking, but baking is so much more fun. In the winter, I like making chocolate-inspired treats, and chocolate chip cookies and magic bars are my go-to.
Favorite color of roses?
I don’t really have a preference, but if if you’re asking about my favorite color for book covers, I really like pastels (I’m thinking about the various editions of Fangirl).
Conversation Hearts, Yes or No?
Yes for cute decorations, no for eating. They definitely do not taste as cute as they look.
Do you leave love notes?
If my book boyfriends could read them, then this answer would be yes (I’ve already tried leaving notes for Chaol in Crown of Midnight, I guess he’s just not getting the message).
Do you decorate for Valentine’s Day?
Some pink, red, and white book piles would be a nice touch. Like this one below:
Red or Pink?
Milk, White, or Dark?
ANY! GIVE ME ALL THE NUT-FREE CHOCOLATE. And books. Please.
Do you believe in love at first sight?
If we’re talking about book covers, then yes.
Do you give Humorous or Serious Valentine Cards?
Humorous/light-hearted ones are the best! In high school, my friends and I would give each other handmade ones incorporating some of our inside jokes or we would buy cards that you would typically give out to your classmates in grade school. I still have a Harry Potter themed one from one of our high school exchanges!
Favorite Chick Flick or Romantic Movie?
The Devil Wears Prada and Bride Wars are among my favorites (and probably among the most played on TV, but hey, they’re fantastic!).
Stay In or Go Out?
ALWAYS STAY WITH THE BOOKS.
