1.) Anna and Etienne from Anna and the French Kiss
Do we even really need to talk about these two? Anna is an incredibly relatable character and St. Clair just adorable. Their chemistry is amazing throughout the entire book. I'm swooning just thinking about it (and also clearly due for a reread).
2.) Taylor and Jonah from Jellicoe Road
The tension between these two is simply amazing. Nothing more needs to be said.
3.) Alexia and Lord Maccon from Soulless
Okay, it seems to be a little soon to be adding them to my list as I only just finished the book over the weekend. Their romance was the perfect blend of cheeky and steamy. I'm so ready for more!
4.) Ron and Hermione from the Harry Potter series
Um, DUH. They are so perfect for each other. It's in front of their entire faces the entire time. IT ONLY TAKES THEM SEVEN FREAKING BOOKS TO REALIZE IT.
5.) Margaret Hale and Mr. Thornton from North and South
So many happy sighs on this one. I'm not going to talk about it, but instead just share a clip from the end of the miniseries. Once again, I don't claim this video as my own.
6.) Augustus and Hazel from The Fault In Our Stars
Of all the romances I've included, this is by far the most heart-breaking. The way both of these characters feel and express their love for one other is simply beautiful.
7.) Sean and Puck The Scorpio Races
Another tension filled romance. I love the fact that these two form such a strong connection even when it's in neither of their best interests.
8.) Oliver and Hadley from The Statistical Probability of Love At First Sight
As any self-respecting Minnesota might say, oh FER CUTE. Even though it starts off as flirtations in an airport, these characters form a deep connection quickly. I love their story.
9.) Nastya and Josh from The Sea of Tranquility
I haven't reviewed this title yet, so a more complete gush session will be forthcoming. I'm not sure if I could tell you what makes these two such a great couple--I think it's partially the fact that even though they don't always show it, they are fiercely protective of one another.
10.) Darcy and Elizabeth from Pride and Prejudice
Elizabeth and Darcy are both awesome characters on their own, so when you put them together, there's almost too much awesome in one relationship. I think the fact that each of them are so compassionate and witty keeps the romance between them alive.
If you haven't read these books, I highly recommend all of them. What are some of your favorite literary romances and couples?
