My first guest joining me for a lavish tea party is Eileen from Singing and Reading the Rain! She's one of my absolute favourite US bloggers and if I could invite her to a real British tea party, I would, but a virtual one in which we gush over fictional guys and romance will have to do for now! Read on to find out what Eileen loves and hates...
EILEEN!!!!! *tackle-hugs* A huge welcome to A Reading Daydreamer!!!
*tackle hugs back* IT'S AWESOME TO BE HERE! :D *dramatic waves*
You’re a regular Twitter user (Twitterer? Tweeter? Twit?) and we’ve chatted several times about books but I don’t think we’ve talked about fictional guys. So, tell us which type of fictional guys do you usually swoon over?
Regular Twitter user?!?! It's more like I'm attached at the hip to Twitter. That's not why you asked the question, so let me log off Twitter and then I shall answer your question!
*thirty minutes later*
WAIT NO TWITTER *clings* Five more minutes?
Okay now to the actual question!
The kind of fictional guy that I absolutely love and want to steal for myself is a guy who can be really sweet and vulnerable when he needs to be, but has a little bit of that dark and dangerous vibe underneath. And smartness! Every Asian needs their intelligence ;) And if we're also talking physical traits, I REALLY love piercing eyes. Like, a LOT.
Yes, yes, yes! AGREED! I love a guy who can be
What do you think of insta-love? Love it? Hate it? What other romance pet peeves do you have?
I really despise insta-love. To me, it's like the author took a lazier way out instead of developing two characters' relationship. I get there being an initial attraction, but if the author elaborates on that attraction later on, THEN I get it. But if it's like "I like you" and then the second time you go on a date, "I love you." Then I'm like, "Yeah...no."
I do recall you like guys with British accents, are there any particular fictional ones you loved?
CAN ANYONE SAY ETIENNE ST. CLAIR?!?!?! I LOVE THAT BOY TO DEATH! Seriously, he's just SO sweet! Sososososososososososo sweet and romantic and OMG I need to reread Anna and the French Kiss now! *melts into a gooey puddle*
If you could invite any fictional guys to a tea party, who would you choose and why?
This is totally easy. Ash from the Iron Fey! Number one, the Iron Fey is my favorite series EVER and Ash is a total sweetheart, even though he's an Ice Prince. COME HITHER ASH. *fangirls*
Do you have any favourite couples? Ones where you loved the guy but felt bad because the girl was awesome too and they were perfect for each other?
What are your favourite romance/contemporary reads? And which ones are you anticipating in the next few months?
Finally, can you share with us some covers that are really sweet or romantic for us to coo over?
Hmm...*searches on Goodreads* I actually don't know! Pushing the Limits has a super romantic cover though! Seriously. It's such an awesome book. And usually I think of romantic books to be books where the guy and the girl are like in a serious liplock or something, which probably isn't the best book for me to read with my parents available to see the cover. *cough*
BUT, OMG, I love Lola and the Boy Next Door! That is so sweet and Cricket looks like he's so achingly in love with Lola! RIGHT? AM I RIGHT? And I still need to read Anna and the French Kiss again! Or buy myself a copy. Or just fangirl in general over it.
Thank you so much for joining me today, Eileen! It’s wonderful to have you here! *Sends cookies and marshmallows to the US*
Ooh cookies!! *gobbles*
Hehe, I just love Eileen and her enthusiasm - she's a lovely girlie! Be sure to check out her blog which is brimming with Eileen-craziness-and bubbliness!
