Be Still My Heart: 10 Love Stories Totally Worth the Wait!

in Romance by

Be still my heart! Between the new episodes of Outlander and Arrow, this has been a pretty great week for romance. And not just any standard romance either, but love stories that we have been pining over, desperately waiting for our favorite couples to reunite. Gif via Giphy.com On Outlander, we finally got our Print Shop Scene, with Claire and Jamie reuniting after spending 20 years – and technically a couple of centuries – apart. As a longtime Outlander fan (of both the show and the books!), it was everything I could have dreamed of and more. Awkward, sweet, and crazy romantic. Don’t even get me started on the basically 45 minute sex scene that followed. Gif via jvmiefraser.tumblr.com When it comes…

Ahem. Since the magic of Christmas is still pretty tied up in you, Santa, I’m finally giving into it this year. With nothing left to lose, here’s my Christmas List.

Do You Agree with These Choices for Favorite Book Boyfriend?

in Fiction by

Sometimes you don’t just love a book; you worship it. And sometimes you don’t just like a character in that book; you want to marry them. Whether they’re broody and intense or sweet and sensitive, there’s just something about this guy or gal that you can’t get enough of. You comb the pages for mentions of their name, linger on your favorite passages, and, uh, imagine that you’re the one making out with them during love scenes. Luckily, there’s a phrase for these kind of obsessive reading-crushes. Book boyfriends (or girlfriends!). These are the characters you would die to meet in real life, the people you can actually imagine yourself falling in love with—if only they didn’t exist solely in…
