I know, I know, eck – Valentine’s day. However, a flash of inspiration has hit for a post so here we go. In honour of the big time corporations favourite holiday – I’m going to ignore them and try and get back to the romance of the day.
So I’m going to share with you, my top five favourite relationships in books! (of course in books, what else would it be?!)
Spoiler alert; as some of these couples appear in sequels!
1. Feyre & Rhysand – A Court of Mist and Fury
Of course, this is in here. It’s a great relationship; equal and fair and humorous and adorable. I’m pretty sure we were all making heart eyes at Rhys throughout the entire book.
2. Kaz & Inej – Six of Crows duology
They were both broken, they were both beautiful. They didn’t just fix each other, they struggled and they fought and they broke my heart over and over again. I adored watching these two develop – even though they never truly became a couple – there was promise there and it was e-v-e-r-y-t-h-i-n-g.
3. Elizabeth & Darcy – Pride and Prejudice
A classic couple. A real lesson on relationships. How they educated each other and improved each other. How people can change and evolve. It’s wonderful.
4. Cath & Levi – Fangirl
More than likely one of the most real and most relatable portrayal of people and relationships that I’ve read, both in the contemporary genre and books in general.
5. Harry & Ginny
Very much their relationships from the books! You could see it build and burn and it was natural and I very much enjoyed reading it develop.
