Clear back in 2013 I wrote a post about some of my favorite fictional couples. Since then I have read many more books and discovered many more sweet romances. So I thought it was high time I updated my list! Fun, right? (Who doesn't love a cute romantic moment or three between some of your favorite characters?! ;)
Gen & Attolia :: The Queen's Thief series by Megan Whalen Turner
I confess I wasn't entirely sure about these two at first. But The King of Attolia completely won me over! I read a post somewhere recently that talked about how much more we enjoy Gen and Attolia's romantic moments when we look at them through someone else's eyes. Usually that takes away from my enjoyment of a fictional relationship, but not this time. Somehow, through Costis' eyes, we get an even more intimate and true view of how much they love and care of one another than I think we would ever get were either of them telling the story. This couple's understanding of one another is amazing. They're just lovely. Trust me! You need to meet these two! :)
Gideon & Gwyneth :: The Ruby Red trilogy by Kerstin Gier
These two are just cute. There's no other word for them. For all their immaturity and tendency toward insta-love, I could not help but grin at every single sweet moment between them! They're adorable together.
Don't get me wrong, Cinder and Kai are wonderful. But these two? These two have my heart. And they better get a lot more page time in Winter, Ms. Meyer! I desperately need more Wolf and Scarlet happiness!
Kai & Elliot :: For Darkness Shows the Stars by Diana Peterfreund
I love these two about as much as I love their original counterparts, Anne Elliot and Captain Wentworth from Jane Austen's Persuasion. Not quite, but close! Watching them reconnect is simply lovely and countless rereads of this book later, I still squeal inside when I read the last couple chapters. Ah, loveliness indeed! :)
I have one word for you: swoonworthy. That is Philip in a nutshell. A perfect gentleman who realizes Marianne's worth upon first meeting and subsequently manages to steal her heart and mine as well!
Vidanric & Meliara :: Crown Duel by Sherwood Smith
From start to finish, this couple goes through so many adventures and heartaches. But their story is completely perfect for them. For all the ups and downs they cause one another, it just makes their ending that much sweeter. I love these two!
Oliver & Hadley :: The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight by Jennifer E. Smith
I have read this book so very many times and never get tired of watching this couple find their way. It only took me the first chapter to decide I was going to like these two and I was right! I love it when that happens. ;)
Mr. Knightley & Sam :: Dear Mr. Knightley by Katherine Reay
These two are simply perfect for each other. Perfect! I love every second of their story. Neither ever expected to find someone who understood them and watching them stumble and circle around and finally find their happy ending is captivating!
Cole & Lexi :: The Near Witch by Victoria Schwab
I dare you to read this book and not get swept away in the adventure and romance that awaits you! Cole and Lexi are wonderful. And the story that entwines around them is SO worth reading!
Creepy and romantic, that's what these two are. Both are scarred and hurting and never once believing that the other will be the means for their healing. Beautifully written, their story still makes me *happy sigh*. They just work perfectly together!
So! Any cute couples you'd recommend to me? :)
