Favorite Love at First Sight Couples

I’m linking up here to Cordy’s Lovely Blog Party. So, I’ve done, Friends to Lovers, Enemies/Frenemies to Lovers, and now for the oft-maligned, highly suspect love at first sight couples. I think this is best done when it is attraction at first sight (often the other tropes have this but its unequal or there is… Continue reading Favorite Love at First Sight Couples

My Favorite Couples with Hilarious Love Moments

I’m linking up to Cordy’s Lovely blog party here. Harry and Ginny in Harry Potter and The Half Blood Prince Ginny pined for Harry for awhile and then took steps to move in with her life. Harry got over Cho and then it was his turn to pine (oh how the turn tables). When I ship… Continue reading My Favorite Couples with Hilarious Love Moments

Top Ten Tuesday: One of My Favorite Romantic Tropes: The Bantering or Clashing Couple

Now, this is totally overdone I realize. I also feel sure I’ve done a similar post, maybe even for Top Ten Tuesday, I really don’t care though. I’m also linking up to Cordy’s Lovely Blog party, I think this fits. I’m not talking about the couples who amateur writes try to make bantering or fighting… Continue reading Top Ten Tuesday: One of My Favorite Romantic Tropes: The Bantering or Clashing Couple

American Literature and Reevaluating My Reading Standards

I know lots of people discuss reading broader globally, moving about of Western Lit if they have thoroughly read Western Lit which doesn’t seem the case for most people, good and well. I however, don’t even read that broad. I’ve barely read my own nation’s literature, and what I’ve read . . . I .… Continue reading American Literature and Reevaluating My Reading Standards
