Last-Minute Literary Valentines: Three Printables!

Brenna Clarke Gray

Staff Writer

Part muppet and part college faculty member, Brenna Clarke Gray holds a PhD in Canadian Literature while simultaneously holding two cats named Chaucer and Swift. It's a juggling act. Raised in small-town Ontario, Brenna has since been transported by school to the Atlantic provinces and by work to the Vancouver area, where she now lives with her stylish cyclist/webgeek husband and the aforementioned cats. When not posing by day as a forserious academic, she can be found painting her nails and watching Degrassi (through the critical lens of awesomeness). She posts about graphic narratives at Graphixia, and occasionally she remembers to update her own blog, Not That Kind of Doctor. Blog: Not That Kind of Doctor Twitter: @brennacgray

You didn’t forget Valentine’s Day there, did you, champ? Maybe you weren’t paying attention and it snuck up on you? Too busy being shocked and surprised at the Easter Bunny’s appearance in the seasonal aisle (WHY IS IT OUT SO EARLY) to notice all the cupids and hearts?

At Book Riot, we’ve got you covered. Here are five fabulous printable Valentine cards to save your butt. You’re welcome.

1. Over at Random House Canada’s Retreat blog, they’ve got cards versions of some of their biggest Winter releases, like this one of Andy Weir’s The Martian (which I’m giving to all my Book Riot family this year, since I think we were all totally smitten by this title).


2. An oldie but a goodie, how about some Game of Thrones Valentines for all your best nerds? Chris Bishop made these two years ago, and I featured them on these pages last year, but who can get enough? And if you haven’t seen them, you’ll love them.


3. Ben Kling’s portrait Valentines are fabulous and include literary luminaries like Mary Shelley and, my favourite, the inimitable Oscar Wilde.
