Love Week: Guest Post! Danika Stone






Swoon  Reads, is one of my favorite  publishers. I actually had added Internet Famous on my wish list before Danika conracted me for a post opportunity .  I'm so excited to read it! Check out Danika's favorite  "ships" below.







Danika Stone’s Top Four Ships… Internet-Style!
I’ll admit it. I’m a shipper. I love to fall in love on the page,to follow the slow-dance or 
quick-fire burn of romance, and to savor each (fictional) moment of the characters. 
Over the 
years, my love for certain pairings has been exceeded only by my need to find new ships. 
With Valentine’s approaching, I decided it was time to list my faves… Internet-style!

OTP; translation: One True Pairing. The perfect romantic pairing.

My current OTP is Joyce / Hopper from Stranger Things, which is totally a faint-hope 
ship… but I live it like you wouldn’t believe! These two are so beautifully broken, I just want to 
force them together to make all the hurt go away. *swoons*
OT3; translation: One True Polyamorous Trio / love triangle.
The Katniss / Peeta / Gale love triangle from The Hunger Games takes the award for me. 
I rather like them when they’re all together, and frankly not so much when they’re paired 
individually. I’m not sure why.

NoTP; translation: NO True Pairing – as in literally ANYTHING but this.

I cannot ship Sansa Stark and Littlefinger from Game of Thrones. *shudders* I honestly 
can’t imagine anything more revolting.
BroTP; translation: A bromance where the characters basically buddy around and don’t 
necessarily get romantic, but have a serious platonic thing happening.
Although this ship is usually m/m, my choice is m/f. I’m only a lukewarm Clarke / 
Bellamy shipper, but I absolutely LOVE them as buddyroos! Given a choice, I’d want ALL the 
episodes of The 100 to be Clarke and Bellamy running around trying to save the world from 
destruction. I know there are die-hard Bellarke shippers out there, but I think the pairing works 
best as friends.
So how about you? What are your choices for OTP, OT3, NoTP and BroTP? List your 
faves in the comments below!

Love Week: Love is Love by Various



This week I'm celebrating love in all it's forms! I'm a sucker for Valentine's Day, I always have been. Though it has become a commercial  nightmare, and often leads many to look at their single state as less, there is something special about taking a day to focus on love.



Love is Love is not an easy read. I found myself crying in some bits, smiling in others and wondering how such hate can surround those seeking love.

All the proceeds from this book go tot he survivors of the shooting of the Pulse night club shooting. I brought it because of the wonderful creators involved but more importantly because I wanted to DO something, to help others dealing with a tremendous loss.

And though this book is hard, every page also shines with the most wonderful of emotions: Hope.
