10 favorite bookish couples! [Top 10 Tuesday]

February 22, 2022

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.


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.


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.)


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.


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.”


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?

      1. 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!
