Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly blog meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl.
It’s time for another Top Ten Tuesday post! This week’s theme is Dynamic Duos, so I decided to go with…
10 of my favorite bookish couples!
Some of these might be considered spoiler-y, so I’ll put the actual couple names in a drop-down in case you haven’t read that book/series and don’t want to be spoiled on the end game! Click each book’s title to open the drop-down.
A COURT OF MIST AND FURY // Sarah J. Maas
I couldn’t make this list without including my babies, Feyre and Rhysand. I love the slow build-up to their relationship and they make me so soft.
CAPTIVE PRINCE // C.S. Pacat
Damianos and Laurent are an all-time favorite OTP, and a lot of that is because their “happily ever after” moment is so difficult for them to earn. They deserve domestic bliss and peace forever.
A GIRL LIKE HER // Talia Hibbert
I love all of Talia’s couples, but my first Talia Hibbert book ever was this one, and Ruth and Evan will always have such a special place in my heart! (It doesn’t hurt at all that Talia said Evan is based on Chris Evans.)
AN ENCHANTMENT OF RAVENS // Margaret Rogerson
To be so important and powerful, Rook can be such a dumbass and I always giggle when I remember Isobel trolling him during their journey.
THE ILLUMINAE FILES // Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff
Despite Nik actually being my favorite character in the series, I gotta go with Kady/Ezra for the best pairing. Ezra drunkenly face-smashing the keyboard to tell Kady he still loves her is an S-tier himbo moment I’ll never forget.
A CONJURING OF LIGHT // V.E. Schwab
Kell and Lila are great, don’t get me wrong, but I don’t feel like Rhy and Alucard get nearly as much hype as they deserve. “Fix your crown, my prince. It’s crooked.”
EMPIRE OF STORMS // Sarah J. Maas
I wasn’t going to include Rowaelin since I haven’t finished the series yet, but then I thought about the “to whatever end” line and got all teary-eyed and, well, here we are.
CROOKED KINGDOM // Leigh Bardugo
The book community is sleeping on how damn precious Nina and Matthias are by the end of this duology, and it wrecks me. 😭
THE RAVEN KING // Maggie Stiefvater
Blue/Gansey is the superior ship in this series and I refuse to change my mind.
JUST LISTEN // Sarah Dessen
Annabel and Owen were my first ever major OTP and they have a special place in my heart forever. They definitely introduced me to one of my favorite oddly specific tropes: a survivor struggling with their circumstances, who meets a love interest who doesn’t “save” them, but helps them discover their own inner strength to heal. ♥
Who are some of your favorite bookish couples? Do we have any in common?
Let me know in the comments, or drop a link to your T10T post for the week!

Kady and Ezra 4ever 😍 Oh and yes, Rhy and Alucard definitely don’t get the hype they deserve! I LOVE them so much 🥰 Great list!
YESSS Rhy and Alucard! Precious babies! Haha thank you friend!
Great list! Nik is the best haah!
Nik is so freaking great lol! I love him so much ♥ thank you Evelyn!
I actually enjoy the Shades of Magic couple you mention more than the other main one too. I do love the other one, but the one you mention is my OTP of that series!
My TTT: https://jjbookblog.wordpress.com/2022/02/22/top-ten-tuesday-356/
Same! 😀 I love both, but they’re just so fantastic it’s hard not to have them as my favorites! I really hope we see more of them in Threads of Power.
I hope so too!

Oh, you have A Girl Like Her on this list? I need details because this has been sitting in my KU for far too long and maybe I should pick it up and read. 👀👀
A Girl Like Her is one of my favorite books of all time, Malli! I recommend it SO highly. In fact, the whole series is awesome! I’ve read AGLH 4 or 5 times now and it never gets old!
Haha dang it! I just need to make a whole post titled, “Buying all the books Destiny recommends me to read!” 😂 The just do one giant haul of every single book you’ve recommended to me in the time frame of the last month or so.
Bahaha I love this comment 😂🥰
I’m serious! Wait, this is literally a brilliant idea! I’m writing this down!
So many of my favorites on here!
That makes me so happy 😀
