It’s Valentine’s Day this Sunday, so today’s theme kinda is an ode to that. Heart can mean a lot of different things though. While I think it’s important to enjoy the single life if that’s where you’re at, I also believe life is empty without love. That’s why I constantly seek out books that focus on friendship. The heart of a friend is an amazing gift and something to treasure always. And so, in the spirit of friendship, I’m currently reading Beautiful Broken Things by Sara Barnard.
What does heart signify to you?

I am a girly girl deep inside, and hearts are just cute, and pretty, and I just adore the shape. So I find them adorable and attractive.

Friendship love is something we can be sure will survive. I guess that is why friendships are so amazing, right?

I’m the same, I love books with romance, but I love books with such good friendships even more. I think that’s what makes me love a book even more, you know? The Naturals does friendship well, as does Embassy Row and Under the Never Sky, there’s some first class friendships in there! I also find family important at Valentines too, it’s their love that affects me at the moment. Great post, I’ll be posting my image later! :)

Omg, yessss for friendships!! Particularly books with strong friendships…I think they’re probably my favourite of ever. :’) (Which is probably why I can’t get enough of The Raven Boys because SO MUCH FRIENDSHIP. <3)
Yay for friendship love! Do you have a Goodreads shelf for books with great friendships?
Sort of. I have a “solid platonic friendship” shelf where I add books that contain strong & pure friendships between a female & male characters. It’s woefully empty because I don’t include such friendships that hardly demonstrate the strength in the absence of romance. Then there’s the general “friendship” shelf.
Maybe I’ll set up a “solid friendship” and pull out the good ones I’ve read to go on there. I previously considered a “best friends” shelf but dropped that because there are those friendships that are ace but the characters don’t label themselves as best friends and on the flip side, there are those who’re introduced as best friends but really don’t treat each other as such.

Ladies, I FINALLY got back on the bandwagon and did a Bookish Scene on time! Honestly, it’s just because everything came together SO perfectly when I saw the theme and was thinking about this book. I can’t wait to see everyone else’s photos too!
