I love love. So this Tuesday’s prompt? Absolutely perfect. 

A part of me struggled, just because this prompt means I have to go for actual couples and not ones I know deep in my heart exist, despite not being together in the book.

 

  • Elizabeth and Darcy//Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen

Reading this book and watching the 2005 adaptation taught me that love exists and it’s between a woman who takes no shit, loves her family and puts up a brave front and a man who is anxious, struggles to communicate outside of random outbursts and probably gives good hugs.

 

  • Molly and Reid//The Upside of Unrequited by Becky Albertalli

I looooove these two. Both of these characters are adorable and Reid was so endearing and nerdy, the perfect guy for the quite-timid Molly who DESERVES ALL THE LOVE.

 

  • Will Solace and Nico Di Angelo//Heroes of Olympus/Trials of Apollo by Rick Riordan

I’d be lying if I said I didn’t cry when I read Those Scenes in Blood of Olympus/The Hidden Oracle. I really do love Nico, and- due to a lot of fan engagement- Will grew on me so much and I just wanted them to be a THING. Rick Riordan loves his fans!

 

  • Katsa and Po//Graceling by Kristin Cashore

Writing about these two always makes me want to go back and re-read Graceling for the four thousandth time. You know when you see a couple and they are literally soulmates? These two. Hands down. They broke my heart in that book.

 

  • Snow White and Bigby Wolf//Fables by Bill Willingham

AKA, the only reason I’m still reading that series, and the reason I’m so heartbroken over Telltale being shut down before they could make a second game. Snow and Bigby have such a complicated history, and I love the way Bill Willingham wrote their relationship development. Now I want to also re-read this series. Dammit.

 

  • Poison Ivy and Harley Quinn//DC Comics

Across multiple comics, these two are one of my favourite couples. Can you believe they were literally married in the Injustice universe? Hell yeah!

 

I don’t even have the words to thank Rick enough for giving us these two in a relationship. They have one of the best dynamics- fluffy, supportive SO and a snarky, takes-no-shit SO- and my heart felt happy every time they were on the page together, whether that be sort-of-flirting or just helping each other!

 

  • Chase and Gert//Runaways by Brian K Vaughan

Don’t even BRING UP what Brian K Vaughan did. Chase and Gert are amazing as a couple and were probably the reason I carried on that series as long as I did, and are the reason I started watching the show.

 

  • Tori Spring and Michael Holden//Solitaire by Alice Oseman

Remember what I said about sweet, supportive SO and snarky [but more depressed than anything] SO who both bring out the best in one another? I love Tori and Michael, always have, always will. He helped her come out of her shell and gave her a genuine friendship and she understands him deeper than the happy face he puts on, in a way no other person does in that book, and AAAAA.

 

  • Evie O’Neill and Sam Lloyd//The Diviners by Libba Bray

 

SPOILERS FOR BOOK 2 LAIR OF DREAMS

 

‘Oh but we’re FAKE DATING! We’re ALLOWED to make out and hold hands and call each other pet names!’ like damn bitch OK whatever you say! I’m not judging! I’ve been thriving off their relationship since book 1 I’m not here to stop them.

 

 

And those are my top ten book couples! What are your favourites? I’m always looking for supportive relationships in books, as you can see by the dynamic I clearly lean towards. Actually, looking at it… I really do have a Type when it comes to relationships I enjoy!

Happy Tuesday, and thank you for reading!
