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.
Cath and Levi of course!!!
Clarke and Bellamy of course as well.
Katniss and Peeta- I guess- although give me Kinnick!!
Jon and Ygritte
"You know nothing, Jon Snow"
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.
Aragorn and Arwen- perhaps a little less controversial?
John Carter and Dejah Thoris
Georgianna and her guy were awesome in this one (drawing a blank on his name)
Alex and Ada!!
Ellison and Anarchy
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. :)ReplyDelete
I've only read one of hers, but I like Fangirl a lot! I highly recommend that!Delete
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!ReplyDelete
Fangirl is great, and I'm definitely in the minority with Luke and Leia!!Delete
Cath and Levi will be popular choices this week, I feel. Wonderful list.My TTTReplyDelete
I think so too- love them!Delete
Jon and Ygritte. Yes. They cute. Well Ygritte is haha.ReplyDelete
Aw Luke and Leia?? I did a double take at that, but I hear you. (Harrison Ford and Han were always my <3)ReplyDelete
I know! A lot of people will disagree with that but I always liked the farmboy/ princess angle, before they made them siblings!!Delete
John Carter and Dejah Thoris - YES!ReplyDelete
Definitely Cath and Levi. I didn't think of them when I made my TTT, but I definitely love them.ReplyDelete
They are the best!Delete
Oh man I forgot Cath and Levi! Loved them!ReplyDelete
I did too!Delete
Oh Katniss and Peeta! I never thought of those two... I liked them very much.ReplyDelete
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. :)
I've never read The 100 books either so I'm going strictly off the show!Delete
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.ReplyDelete
Here's my Tuesday Post
Have a GREAT day!
Old Follower :)
Same here. On the 100- but I love the show!Delete
Cath + Levi... great pick! And as much as I loved Katniss + Peeta, I could totally get on board with Kinnick! :)ReplyDelete
I could too :)Delete
Ygritte and Jon Snow made my list this week too. :)ReplyDelete
"You know nothing Jon Snow" :):)Delete
I so want RR to revisit Cath and Levi, because I adored them!ReplyDelete
I would love to see another story about them!Delete
Great list! I do love Aragorn and Arwen, but I think I love Faramir and Eowyn even more.ReplyDelete
Oh that's a good one- Faramir & Eowyn are awesome!Delete
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
I know! And that IS funny!!!Delete
Jon and Ygritte - awesome. Great list and I love that you also have Luke and Leia on your list.ReplyDelete
Thank you- I know not too many people agree about Luke and Leia but I like to think what if??Delete
Yeah, Katniss and Peeta were a good couple. :)ReplyDelete
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.
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
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.ReplyDelete
Here's my TTT: https://dinaratengri.com/2019/02/most-ship-worthy-couples-in-tv-history/
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
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
I know :)Delete
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 TuesdayReplyDelete
Katniss and Finnick does have some interesting possibilities... maybe in an alternate reality :)Delete
Yes, I could definitely see them working in an alternate reality!Delete
I love Katniss and Peeta, but I really love Finnick...ReplyDelete
Yeah I could live w/ Finnick. :)Delete
I've never read the books, but I love Clarke and Bellamy in the show. Still shipping it after all these years.ReplyDelete
Yes! They are the best.Delete
I totally thought Luke and Leia worked better too. Before the whole brother-sister thing. =)ReplyDelete
Katniss and Peeta work too.
Yes! Thank you!!!Delete
I agree with the Hunger Games couple.ReplyDelete
I always wanted Katniss and Peeta to end up together in the series. I was so happy when they did <3ReplyDelete
Elle Inked @ Keep on Reading
Yeah I wasn't sure WHAT was going to happen, but it ended well :)Delete
I love the relationship between Levi and Cath in Fangirl. Levi is not your prototypical literary boyfriend and I like that. My favorite literary couplesReplyDelete
Same here. I'd LOVE to check in with them again a few years later...Delete
Great list! I love Jnn and YgritteReplyDelete
I'm with you... Finnick all the way! :)ReplyDelete
I cry my eyes out in the TV series for Jon and Ygritte! Yes to Katniss and Peeta!ReplyDelete
Katniss and Peeta 4ever!ReplyDelete
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.ReplyDelete
have a lovely day.
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.ReplyDelete
And yes, I think you really need to read Chaos Walking. It seems like a series you'd like.
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
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
I actually just started Fangirl today and I'm loving it so far!ReplyDelete
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.ReplyDelete
~Mogsy @ BiblioSanctum
Aragorn and Arwen <3333333 I feel like I need to reread those sometime soon..........ReplyDelete
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
Aragorn and Arwen 😍ReplyDelete
Yess! Bellarke! (Although I've only seen the TV series I ship them SO HARD.)ReplyDelete
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
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
Cath and Levi are a couple of my all time favorite characters. :)ReplyDelete
