Characters in Love: Favorite Couples

Friday, February 17, 2012

February is the month of looooove! *sing-songy voice* Thanks to Imaginary Reads for doing this. I'm so glad to be a part of it! 

Valentine's Day doesn't really mean much to me (being single and all... PUT YOUR HANDS UP), but I love to just celebrate love. There's plenty of people that I love, even if it isn't romantic. (*waves* Hi, Mommy! I'm on the Internet!) And there are plenty of book boys out there that I have fallen in love with.
Since this event is called "Characters in Love," I am presenting to you a few of my most favorite couples ever. And I mean ones that I feel really fit together as a couple. Enough with this "insta-love" crap. We want real chemistry, a real budding of romance, not "our eyes met and I felt sparks and fireworks and bubbles."
  1. Aiden St. Delphi and Alex Andros - Aiden would do anything for Alex, even if it means not ending up with her for her protection. Or sacrificing his life. It's so darn sweet.
  2. Marcello Forelli and Gabriella Betarrini - She traveled across centuries to meet this guy. I mean, seriously, Fate or something had to be a part of this.
  3. Clary Fray and Jace Herondale/Wayland/Morgenstern/Lightwood (I love typing that out. Who has that many last names? He's so messed up.) - four books, and we still haven't seen these two together. Really?!?
  4. Will Herondale and Tessa Gray (BACK OFF, JEM.) - Because they're just perfect. Those bookworms. So cute.
  5. Meghan Chase and Prince Ash - He literally went to the end of the world for her. I bawled my eyes out at the end of book three.
  6. Will and Ellie Monroe - "It was my true name tattooed down his arm..." Cue sighs. She dies and comes back to life, over and over, and he always comes back for her. Sighhh.
  7. Maximum Ride and Fang (Go die in a fire, Dylan.) - A favorite series of mine that I read in middle school. Dude, I loved those books, and even more when those two (kind of) got together. But then Dylan barged in and ruined it.
  8. Anna Oliphant and Etienne St. Clair - Stephanie Perkins is a freakin' genius. All I have to say.
  9. Percy Jackson and Annabeth Chase (aka Seaweed Brain and Wise Girl) - Five books and about half a million near death experiences later, these two finally share their first kiss. There's an innocence to middle grade books that I seriously miss in YA books.
  10. Hermione Granger and Ron Weasley - I had to include a Harry Potter one and Ginny and Harry just didn't make the cut. They were random. But Hermione and Ron were besties-turned-loves. Awww.
(Ranked by author's last name. I'm keeping it fair, here.)

Hope you enjoyed! Feel free to share with me some of your own fave couples on Twitter (BOOK CHAT WHOO) or via comment on this post!

  1. Oh I totally agree with you about Aiden and Alex! They're awesome together. They belong together!

    And from what I've read of Will and Ellie, they too are the fated, true love kinda couple.

    I'd add Adam Wilde and Mia from Where She Went. Their love grew over time, over a breakup, over tragedy. And it grew stronger.

  2. Oops!! How could I forget about Will Killian and Alona Dare?

    I love those two. They began hating (or at least disliking) each other, but now they need each other!

  3. I just saw that the photo in the post has to do with romance in a library. Ever since I read Shut Out by Kody Keplinger, I kinda see libraries as totally romantic places:))
