In the four years I’ve been blogging, I don’t think I ever did a Valentine’s post? I did do Kat’s Valentine’s Day Write Tag last year, but that was about my own WIP, I never did a post in which I talked about my favourite couples for this time of the year? Which is weird because I have many ships that I love to rave about! I decided that for this post I’d talk about some couples I fell in love with in more recent years and ones I don’t really talk much about, so no Percabeth or Simon and Blue even though I love them to pieces.
also I realise it’s not Valentine’s yet but I actually have more than one Valentine’s related post planned + I have one I want to get up on Valentine’s itself and it’s not this one
Magnus and Alex – Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard by Rick Riordan
If you read part two of my favourite books of 2018, you may remember me comparing Alex’ aesthetic to Cosmo and Wanda from Fairy Odd Parents and guess what I’m not getting that out of my head now!! Anyway, soft sunshine boy who turns into a blushing mess around sarcastic Alex?? Yes please. I wish we had seen more of them as a couple but their slow-burn and banter was a lot of fun to read. Also if you haven’t read Magnus Chase yet and didn’t know: Magnus is pansexual and Alex genderfluid, so that in itself is already reason enough to pick this series up. If you need more reasons, I’ll direct you to this post
Lennon’s moms – Starry Eyes by Jenn Bennet
Lennon’s moms aren’t that prominent in the book but they’re absolute goals? They’re just so cute and I loved their banter and pop culture bets and just djsghd We don’t see much of their relationship, but honestly it was enough to make me fall in love with them
Charlie and Alyssa – Queens of Geek by Jen Wilde
QUEENS of my heart* Honestly I love these two so much?? Like imagine going to a con and running into your (internet) celebrity crush and?? They feel the same way?? ICONIC. Just like their first date. Thank you Charlie and Alyssa for raising my expectations to the roof for first dates. I too would like an emtpy arcade and food please. Though to be fair that doesn’t even need to be a date just leave me there by myself (and with the food) and I’ll be ok
Anyway they’re just?? So cute?? Read Queens of Geek please. I’ll definitely be rereading it soon, not because of Valentine’s Day because eh I don’t really care for it but this post made me realise I haven’t yet?? Even though I claim it to be one of my favourite books?? #fakefan
* See what I did there ok I’ll let myself out
** Okay as I was linking my review I found out I ALREADY MADE THIS PUN IN MY REVIEW TITLE? I’m not original nsdmgd
Seelie and Alyssa – My Whole Truth by Mischa Thrace
Another YA Sapphic Queen™ called Alyssa?
Going into My Whole Truth I didn’t even know Seelie was wlw let alone that there’d be a cute f/f romance so that already gave them a special place in my heart but THEN IT’S A NICE, HEALTHY, SUPPORTING AND HAPPY RELATIONSHIP? Thank you Mischa Thrace for blessing me.
Seelie and Alyssa’s relationship is soft and beautiful. Both of them would already go through hell for their other friends, but their relationship is still set apart. They just melt around each other and kndfdgjj How do I even describe their relationship? I don’t I’m so sorry
Lara Jean and Peter K – To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han
I’m just?? So soft for these two?? I’m already a sucker for fake dating stories but these two?? They’re just so cute and soft and I love their banter and just sdbfh They’re not perfect, nor is their relationship, but they work through it because they love each other. They accept each other for who they are, don’t try to change each other and bring out the best in each other.
Tanner and Sebastian – Autoboyography Christina Lauren
Why did I choose this ship when I already have such a hard time describing my feelings for this book??? Honestly is this entire post even slightly coherent I feel like I’m mostly just going ‘dsngbh I love them’ and that’s it
Me at the start of this post: wow I wonder why I’ve never done a post like this for Valentine’s I have many ships I love to talk about!!
Me now after realising words are hard and even harder when talking about why I love certain ships especially when it’s been a while since I read most of these books:
Let’s just leave it at this: all of these ships left me with warm, fuzzy feelings and all of them are healthy!! That’s the most important thing right?
What are some of your all time favourite ships? What do you think makes a good ship? Let me know in the comments!
