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?
