Top Ten Couples

  

 Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by 
That Artsy Reader Girl. Each week a new Top Ten list will be posted. Everyone is welcome to join. Link back to The Broke and the Bookish so everyone can check out other bloggers' lists. It's a fun way to get to know fellow bloggers.

This week is Top Ten Favorite Couples in Books. Just in time for Valentine's Day! 'Tis the season for love so let's take a look and see which bookish couples have floated my boat.           


Fangirl

Cath and Levi of course!!! 

The 100 (The 100, #1) 

Clarke and Bellamy of course as well. 

The Hunger Games (The Hunger Games, #1)

Katniss and Peeta- I guess- although give me Kinnick!!

Jennifer Lawrence Allies GIF

A Game of Thrones (A Song of Ice and Fire, #1)

Jon and Ygritte 

"You know nothing, Jon Snow"

Leia: Princess of Alderaan (Star Wars)

Luke and Leia - yes I know she's with Han and they're siblings - but I'm talking about the original plan- and I still stubbornly think Luke and Leia work better.  


The Lord of the Rings (The Lord of the Rings, #1-3)

Aragorn and Arwen- perhaps a little less controversial? 

A Princess of Mars (Barsoom, #1)

John Carter and Dejah Thoris

A School for Unusual Girls (Stranje House, #1)

Georgianna and her guy were awesome in this one (drawing a blank on his name)

Alex + Ada, Vol. 2

Alex and Ada!! 


The Deep End

Ellison and Anarchy

  1. Despite all of the hype (and the cute book covers!), I haven't ever read a novel by Rainbow Rowell. Although I do like her novella in the Christmas collection I own. So, maybe... someday I'll read one of her novels. :)

    1. I've only read one of hers, but I like Fangirl a lot! I highly recommend that!

  2. I really need to try one of the Star Wars books. I'm not sure about Leia with Luke though LOL I definitely ship her with Han. I need to read Fangirl soon as well!

    1. I know! A lot of people will disagree with that but I always liked the farmboy/ princess angle, before they made them siblings!!

  6. John Carter and Dejah Thoris - YES!

    ReplyDelete
  7. Definitely Cath and Levi. I didn't think of them when I made my TTT, but I definitely love them.

    ReplyDelete
  8. Oh Katniss and Peeta! I never thought of those two... I liked them very much.
    I haven't read The 100 books but I love Clarke and Bellamy in the TV show and seeings as they actually get together in the books, I'm sold on that one too.

    I never read Fangirl but I love that cover. Will probably check this one out too. :)

    1. I've never read The 100 books either so I'm going strictly off the show!

      Delete
  9. Nice picks! Have to admit I haven't read any of these books but am familiar with most of them! I do favor Clarke and Bellamy on the TV show but passed on the books after I read a few too many unhappy reviews.

    Here's my Tuesday Post

    Have a GREAT day!

    1. Same here. On the 100- but I love the show!

  10. Cath + Levi... great pick! And as much as I loved Katniss + Peeta, I could totally get on board with Kinnick! :)

    ReplyDelete
  11. Ygritte and Jon Snow made my list this week too. :)

    ReplyDelete
  12. I so want RR to revisit Cath and Levi, because I adored them!

    1. I would love to see another story about them!

  13. Great list! I do love Aragorn and Arwen, but I think I love Faramir and Eowyn even more.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Oh that's a good one- Faramir & Eowyn are awesome!

      Delete
  14. Jon and Ygritte is a good one! I say that line "You know nothing Jon Snow" to my husband all the time. He hates it lolololol. I love how they got married in real life.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Jon and Ygritte - awesome. Great list and I love that you also have Luke and Leia on your list.

    1. Thank you- I know not too many people agree about Luke and Leia but I like to think what if??

      Delete
  16. Yeah, Katniss and Peeta were a good couple. :)

    I have no comments to make about Luke and Leia. LOL! (Although they were cute together before everyone realized they were siblings).

    This is my Top Ten Tuesday post.

    1. They were. And yes- I know that's a bit of a controversial pick, but I actually didn't like them as siblings- I wanted to see them lead a new Republic as dignitary and Jedi. Oh well!

      Delete
  17. I didn't like the last minute "twist" that Luke and Leia are twins either. Not just cuz it made their relationship creepy, it was just so tacked on. I laos hate that Leia and Han broke up in the sequels.

    Here's my TTT: https://dinaratengri.com/2019/02/most-ship-worthy-couples-in-tv-history/

    1. Same. I wasn't sure aNYONE would agree with that but frankly I always think Luke and Leia worked better, before the siblings thing.

      Delete
  18. I love that Star Wars clip! Although it's really hard to think of Luke and Leia as a couple, but I know what you mean😁

    ReplyDelete
  19. Nice list! Definitely agree with Arwen and Aragorn. I also like Katniss and Peeta, though Katniss and Finnick is an interesting thought.... Here is my Top Ten Tuesday

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Katniss and Finnick does have some interesting possibilities... maybe in an alternate reality :)

      Delete
    2. Yes, I could definitely see them working in an alternate reality!

      Delete
  20. I love Katniss and Peeta, but I really love Finnick...

    ReplyDelete
  21. I've never read the books, but I love Clarke and Bellamy in the show. Still shipping it after all these years.

    ReplyDelete
  22. I totally thought Luke and Leia worked better too. Before the whole brother-sister thing. =)
    Katniss and Peeta work too.

  23. I agree with the Hunger Games couple.

    ReplyDelete
  24. I always wanted Katniss and Peeta to end up together in the series. I was so happy when they did <3

    1. Yeah I wasn't sure WHAT was going to happen, but it ended well :)

  25. I love the relationship between Levi and Cath in Fangirl. Levi is not your prototypical literary boyfriend and I like that. My favorite literary couples

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Same here. I'd LOVE to check in with them again a few years later...

      Delete
  26. I'm with you... Finnick all the way! :)

    ReplyDelete
  27. I cry my eyes out in the TV series for Jon and Ygritte! Yes to Katniss and Peeta!

    ReplyDelete
  28. I haven't read most of these books so I couldn't agree or disagree but luke and leia? I don't know, it just seems kind of boring even if they are not siblings and it's a bit of a cliche that heroes falls in love with the girl they rescued.

    have a lovely day.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Kennick is...nice. I think to ship Luke and Leia you have to have seen the movies as they were released. I just added the last two books to my TBR based on the comic snippet and the name Anarchy.

    And yes, I think you really need to read Chaos Walking. It seems like a series you'd like.

    ReplyDelete
  30. I also love Katniss & Peeta. They were solid together. My list is here: https://speedyreadercom.wordpress.com/2019/02/12/top-10-tuesday-3/

    ReplyDelete
  31. Obviously I love Bellarke (at least book Bellarke was canon? Sigh) and Katniss and Peeta! Katniss and Finnick is just no, because he was in love with Annie and that is what Mags sacrificed everything for so... yeah no. But they were a really good team in general! Alex and Ada I loved too! If I'd done a list, all 3 of those would have been on it for sure! And actually those are the only ones from your list I have read. Also seconding Wendy, read Chaos Walking YOU HAVE TKONLG for goodness sake.

    ReplyDelete
  32. I actually just started Fangirl today and I'm loving it so far!

    ReplyDelete
  33. LOL even if Luke and Leia weren't siblings, I still think Leia and Han work better. Gotta love the princess and the scoundrel trope, even though the new canon screwed that up royally.

  34. Aragorn and Arwen <3333333 I feel like I need to reread those sometime soon..........

    ReplyDelete
  35. Ha! Great picks, Greg. Although I've only read Hunger Games and Lord of the Rings. ;) Of course, I've seen Star Wars...and I was always a Han girl myself. :)

    ReplyDelete
  36. Yess! Bellarke! (Although I've only seen the TV series I ship them SO HARD.)

    ReplyDelete
  37. I am reading Fangirl right now and I really am liking Levi's character! I also agree with Georgie and her man in A School for Unusual Girls. I am liking all of the couples in the series so far :) I am actually someone who was Team Gale.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Katness & Finnick? Hmmmm... that could be an epic pairing if they weren't both in love with other people!And definitely yes to Cath & Levi, I'm still mad at myself that I left them off my list. I also forgot Jesse & Winter too, another huge oversight on my part.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Cath and Levi are a couple of my all time favorite characters. :)
