Top Ten Tuesday: Favorite Couples in Books

Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. Every week is a different theme for bloggers to post their Top Ten.

This week’s theme is Favorite Couples in Books! I got a lot of feels for my couples here and I love them so much but while I was making this list I realized it’s all heterosexual couples and most of them are, well, white. I’m annoyed at myself about this because it’s clearly reflective of my reading habits but also because I read a lot of mainstream YA Fantasy/Sci-Fi and unfortunately that’s just what’s flooding the market. And while I definitely read books with diverse leads and love interests it’s clearly not enough.

I can and WILL do better about this though AND I’M LOOKING FOR RECOMMENDATIONS!

SO BACK TO MY LIST – Is it clear that my tastes lie in sass-bucket couples?! In no particular order (except for #1 cus thems my #1 ❤️.)

1. Aelin & Rowan
Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas

2. Scarlet & Wolf
The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer

3. Hanna Donnelly & Nic Malikov
The Illuminae Files by Jay Kristoff and Amie Kaufman

4. Elide & Lorcan
Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas

5. Jude & Cardan
The Folk of the Air by Holly Black

6. Julian Blackthorn & Emma Carstairs
The Dark Artifices by Cassandra Clare

7. Georgia & Dave the Laugh
Confessions of Georgia Nicolson by Louise Rennison

8. Alosa & Riden
Daughter of the Pirate King by Tricia Levenseller

Couldn’t find ANY fanart for this series so here’s a picture of Ben Barnes.
Stupid Sexy Ben Barnes.

9. Rose Hathaway and Dimitri Belikov
Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead

10. Jared & Tate
Fall Away by Penelope Douglas

I may need to explain myself slightly with this one. I am not sure yet if they are a favorite couple ever or if it’s that I recently read the books and can’t stop thinking about them. They definitely deserve a full post so I can talk through it and WHAT A COINCIDENCE my post on the Fall Away Series will go up later this week!

*Feyre and Rhysand were obvi on this list – but realized I had too many SJM couples so they got switched out and honestly isn’t it just assumed at this point they’re my babes? Don’t even gotta say it. We all know it’s the truth.

Do you love any of these couples?
Who do you think is probably the most obnoxious in terms of PDA 😂?

  1. YAAS! SJM writes some very shippable couples, though I love them all, I think Elorcan is my fave. Such a good ship! ❤️❤️
    Vampire Academy has been on my TBR for aaaaages. But if there is an amazing ship I will have to read them soon!
    Happy Reading! ❤️

  2. OMG such a good list! I also am loving the fan art! Elide and Lorcan were my fav from TOG and I also love scarlett and wolfe! (although I must admit cress and thorne were my favs;) Rose and Dimitri= the ultimate SHIP! Literally agree with so many of these ahh great post 🙂

    1. I love seeing how different artists envision their favs! It’s so amazing! And I LOVE Cress and Thorne, it was hard to just pick one from the Lunar gang, I just had to go Scarlet/Wolf.
