The Book Love Tag | The Bookish Khaleesi


Hello lovelies!! How are you all today? I still haven’t read anything this week and it’s stressing me out because I really want to! 😥

But oh well, I’ll just rewatch Gilmore Girls until motivation strikes me again. So I thought since I am not reading anything it was the perfect time to do a tag! Today’s tag was brought to me by Kat Impossible! Thanks so much again for the tag! Make sure to check out her post because it was so on point!


So without further ado…

Your favorite book couple.


I am sorry that I always choose Claire and Jamie for every love related question but I just love them so dang much! They are perfect together and their love is so magical! You can feel it bleeding from the pages! It’s so strong and they are absolutely perfectttttt!

Your top 3 book boy/girlfriends

Okay this is going to be very difficult, but I’ll just mention my recent additions to my never-ending list of book boyfriends. 😉

  • Magiano (The Young Elites): Seriously, read The Rose Society and you’ll fall in love with him too.
  • Kaz Brekker (Six of Crows): Need I say more?
  • Khalid (The Wrath and the Dawn): ❤ I can’t get enough of him! I cannot wait for the sequel because I am dying without Khalid and Shazi!

Imagine your favorite book couple. Who would propose, and how? (If there’s already been a proposal: who would be more into organizing the wedding?)

But, I don’t wan to spoil anyone? Okay I guess if there was a proposal Jamie would totally pop the question and Claire would organize everything. And knowing Jamie, he’d sweep Claire off her feet!

Unpopular opinions time! Name a popular pairing you can’t stand.


Bleh. I am not a fan at all of Thomas and Teresa (The Maze Runner). I just didn’t care for Teresa at all, and I am not saying I think he should be with Brenda at all. I just didn’t really believe Thomas’s feelings toward Teresa at all.

What’s your favorite and least favorite romance trope?

Favorite: I am taking Kat’s answer because I agree 100%.  Pretend/fake relationships that turn into something real. You already know those two are going to fall hard for each other because how can they not? Some of the sweetest love stories started out as fake and I loved them!

Least: INSTA-LUST! I think this is worst than insta-love, in my opinion. The “I can’t stand them, but oh-my-god I can’t keep my hands off them”I just don’t buy it at all and this is one of the reasons I get turned off from NA because they usually are always nothing but lust in the beginning and it’s tiring.

Do you ship non-canon couples often? Name some if you do.


Yep. Dorian and Aelin (Throne of Glass) totally. This is still one of my biggest heartbreaks in YA! 😥 😥

Your opinion on love triangles. Go!

I usually don’t mind love triangles because they are very popular in YA, but I hate when there is just no need for another party to come along just to stir up trouble. Triangles done nicely are awesome and I can totally roll with them.

Favorite and least favorite love triangle?

Favorite: Will, Tessa and Jem from The Infernal Devices? Perfection!


Jamie, Claire, and Frank from Outlander? Yes.


Least: America, Maxon, and Aspen from The Selection. I am sorry but Aspen never stood a chance and it was annoying that Aspen was there like an annoying gnat that wouldn’t go away.

Sometimes romance just isn’t the way to go. Favorite friendship?

Juliette and Kenji (Shatter Me) will always be my favorite friendship! Kenji is just the awesome supportive best friend that you want by your side.

I am also going to mention Will and Jem because these two are the definition of parabatai


What’s your favorite scene with your bookish OTP?

I can’t pick just one!! Oh my gosh this is madness! Okay, okay, here is one that made me smile 😀

Outlander by Diana Gabaldon –

“Where did you learn to kiss like that?” I said, a little breathless. He grinned and pulled me close again.

“I said I was a virgin, not a monk,” he said, kissing me again. “If I find I need guidance, I’ll ask.”

Imagine your favorite book couple again. Who’s most excited about Valentine’s Day (either ironically or genuinely)?


I say Jamie because he’s such a softie and never misses a chance to let Claire know she’s loved by him.

Now It’s your turn:

And YOU if you’d like to do this tag!

*Please ignore if you’ve already done it or don’t want to 🙂


Well that’s it! Thanks so much for reading and I’ll see you in my next post!


Until next time,
dee (2)

    Your post was SO perfect!!! I love Jamie and Claire and whenever Frank is put in the mix everything just gets so intense and weird. I can’t wait for Season 2!!!
    And Kenji and Juliette were so awesome! I think Kenji was one of my favourite characters in general.
    I agree that Aspen never stood a chance and Teresa on the Maze Runner? Most unnecessary character ever!

        I am a little scared of Season 2 because I expect it to be even more heartbreaking than the last one 😕
        Aspen was infuriating …
        Right? Teresa didn’t even serve a real purpose…


  2. Trisha Ann says:

    I feel like Teresa is Bella Swan, only with more emotions. Haha! I agree with you about that pairing.

    Also, insta-lust! UGH! I actually cringed when Alina and the Darkling kissed out of the blue. I’m sorry if your shipping them.

    Thanks for tagging me, Dee! 😀

    Hi! I just found your blog because I was searching for the cover of Crooked Kingdom to wallpaper my phone. I absolutely love this and have followed you and will do your bookish tag 🙂 after my exams are over in March. I have a rather derelict blog but I’m hoping to rectify that once I’m on vacation.
    Anyways, much loves and I’m going to look for you on bookstagram now
