is hosting this four edition linkup called Lovely Books. It's all about book guys, so go to her blog and check it out, sweetest person you could ever hope to meet, probably because she's Canadian like yours truly.
So for lack of time not couples, I think I will only do my top five. The funny thing being in real life, I am so cynical about love and romance, I make gagging sounds.
This is true love to me.
In the fictional world I have many ships. Too many.
Howl and Sophie
Howl's Moving Castle by Diana Wynne Jones
These two are everything I have ever wanted in a couple. they fight incessantly, we never have to read about them kissing or being gushy, and they never actually say I love you, but for some reason you just know. I love the movie, but the book versions of them are so much better.
Blue and Gansey
The Raven Boys by Meggie Stiefvater
I'm not sure if the reason that I love this pairing, is because it's destined for disaster. Or because they are complete opposites. Gansey is old money and a cultured accent, Blue is the daughter of a Physic, and all rough edges and oddness. Oh and Gansey is going to die.
Nyx and Ignifex
Cruel Beauty by Rosamund Hodge
He is a demon, the Gentle Lord, and she was promised to be his wife as part of a deal her father made. He is super sassy and hilarious, there is lost of fighting and assassination attempts, before they finally decide that they love each other.
Angel and Easton
Dark is the Night- Mirriam Neal
“Just – just stop, okay?”
“Stop? He kidnapped me, for heaven’s sake!”
“Well, you are over eighteen,” drawled Angel, “so technically, there was no kidnapping involved. I…borrowed you.”
- Dark is the Night
I ship all of Mirriam's couples to be honest, but I really love these two. A human and a vampire, it's so perfect. They have great dialogue, nothing remotely like Twilight I assure you.
Teague and Meridian
The Other Half of Everything
I adore these two so much, that I wish I had written them, they are fantastic. I freak out every time, Deb posts something about them, I can't wait till she writes their story.
A series of loud thumps proceeded from the direction of the kitchen. Then silence.
“I don’t want to know what that was!” I called.
“Remarkably wise of you,” Teague called back.
“I still don’t want to know what that was!” I warned.
“That’s probably for the best.”- The Other Half of Everything
Hope you guys enjoyed this, feel free to join in. I would love to read your posts.
