What’s up bookish friends?!
Happy Tuesday! It’s currently snowing here in NJ and I just got home from work so I figured it’s the perfect day to catch up on reading and blogging while snuggled up next to the fireplace. I’ve never participated in a Top Ten Tuesday before but there was no way I could pass up talking about my favorite couples in books, because for a girl with an ice cold heart, I sure do love my ships.
ICYMI: Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018! It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.
P.S. – all the fan amazing fan art below was found on Tumblr.
Let’s dive in!
Favorite Couples in Books
Rose & Dimitri
“Ah, those two. In a fight, they’re lethal. Around each other, they melt.”
My day one, Forever OTP.
Rose and Dimitri from The Vampire Academy are EVERYTHING. My entire heart and soul belongs to them. I’ve been in love with the two of them for close to ten years now and their story never gets old for me.
Tella & Dante
“You’re the starlight to his darkness, and if you feel the same about him, you should give him another chance.”
When I picked up Caraval I immediately fell in love with Tella. When I picked up Legendary I knew that I would fall in love with Dante. Now, I’m waiting for Finale and pining after the two of them. I can’t wait to be reunited with Tella and Dante and all their little games one last time!
Nesta & Cassian
“I have no regrets in my life, but this. That we did not have time. That I did not have time with you, Nesta. I will find you in the next world – the next life. And we will have that time. I promise.”
I don’t think y’all understand how much my heart BLEEDS for these two. Forget Feyre and Rhys, I am all about Nesta and Cassian. Together or apart, I love both of their characters so much it hurts. Waiting for their book is complete torture, I would do anything for it to be 2020 right about now.
Damon & Winter
“He made himself the cure, which wouldn’t have been necessary if he hadn’t also created the disease.”
In case you missed me RAVING about Kill Switch on Goodreads all last week, let me tell you here. Damon Torrance is my new psychotic book boyfriend. Kill Switch was just released and this book is a dark romance with one of the most complex characters I’ve ever read. Plus, his hate to love romance with Winter is absolutely INSANE.
Jude & Cardan
“Most of all, I hate you because I think of you. Often. It’s disgusting, and I can’t stop.”
Hate to love that continues to keep me hot and bothered with every page turned is ALWAYS my jam. So, you’re probably not even surprised these two made the cut.
Liesl & The Goblin King
“You are the monster I claim, mein Herr.”
The book solidified that I am TRASH for goblins. I loved Liesl and The Goblin King together in Wintersong. I’m pretty sure I devoured that book in one sitting because I couldn’t get enough of them.
Audrey Rose Wadsworth & Thomas Cresswell
“Catch me if I fall, all right?”
A smile curved his lips in a most delightful manner. “I’ve already fallen hard, Wadsworth. Perhaps you should have warned me sooner.”
I’m not going to lie. It took me a little while to dig these two. I was not having it in the first book, but by the second book I was willing to go down swinging for Audrey Rose and Thomas Cresswell.
Winter & Jacin
“You’re perfect,” he said, finishing his thought as if she hadn’t interrupted. “I don’t care if you see dead wolves and turn into a living ice sculpture when you’re having a bad day. I don’t care if I have an imprint of your teeth on my shoulder. I don’t care if you’re … fixed.” He spat the word like it tasted bad. “I want you to be safe and happy. That’s all.”
These two were such an underrated couple in The Lunar Chronicles. Winter and Jacin were the CUTEST together, and I lived for any talk of the two of them. The fact that Jacin was so loyal to Winter just warmed my bitter heart. We love a loyal man.
Juliette & Warner
“Ignite, my love. Ignite.”
I am SO glad I gave the Shatter Me series another chance. Otherwise I would have missed out on the fine specimen that is Warner. I found myself racing through the first two books so that we could get to the good stuff instead of reading about Juliette and Adam being together.
Neil & Andrew
“This,” Neil flicked his finger to indicate the two of them, “isn’t worthless.”
“There is no ‘this’. This is nothing.”
“And I am nothing,” Neil prompted. When Andrew gestured confirmation, Neil said, “And as you’ve always said, you want nothing.”
Andrew stared stone-faced back at him.”
I’m not even done with this series yet, but I would already die for Neil Josten and Andrew Minyard. No questions asked. My two favorite Exy boys forever and ever.
Are any of your favorite couples on my list? If not, who are some of your favs?
Let me know!
Until next time,
