The Winner's Crime Blog Tour


This blog tour for The Winner's Crime by Marie Rutkoski asks each participant this question...

The ‘Winner’s Curse’ is an economics term that means you’ve gotten what you wanted – but at too high a price. What would you pay too much for?

Now, it's more than a little ironic that my tour stop is on Valentine's Day because I took this questions to be more figurative than literal. And my answer also inadvertently aligns with Kestrel's choice. When I first read the question the very first thing that came to my mind was...love. Irrevocably. Undeniable. Without hesitation. LOVE. The greatest of all things is love. So without getting all emo and philosophical on everyone I'll be brief because that is my most honest answer and the only thing in the entire world that can't be bought. There is almost no price too great to be promised real love, true love, can't-live-without-each-other love. It is, I can imagine, the greatest feeling in the entire world. I believe that everyone deserves to fall in love and be in love at least once in their life. The world is not perfect but I believe this should be an unalienable right to every human on this plant as well as all the aliens that may or may not exist out there. We all deserve to feel loved, to be the number one to someone else, to have someone else be your 'person.' I'm still looking for the Beast to my Beauty, the Westley to my Buttercup, the Zsadist to my Bella, the Nash to my Saint, the Alexander to my Tatiana, and the Josh to my Nastya. While it is easy to be discouraged I refuse to give up hope. I love love. I am in love with love itself. I believe in love. And while I know it is not something that can ever be bought...it is the only thing I would ever pay too much for...it is the only thing worth paying too much for. And just in case you need a visual, Carrie Bradshaw really does say it best...

  1. I just know that there is someone out there for you, who will be the Z to your Bella. (And yes, I'm sticking with this one because shellan sisters for life, yo!) But seriously, I believe that everyone deserves to love and be loved in return, most especially you my wonderful, beautiful friend <3
