  1. Awesome choices! I need to watch Return to Cranford. I love me some Hiddles! I also want to watch Northanger Abbey since I loved the book.

    1. Jenni: Thanks! Return to Cranford is wonderful! Although bits of it will only make sense if you've seen Cranford first. But Tom Hiddleston is a delight to watch! This miniseries was actually my introduction to him and I have loved him since! :)

      What part of Northanger Abbey I have watched, I'd say the '07 version stays pretty close to the book. So I hope you enjoy it if you ever get the chance to watch!

  2. Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth, Mr. Knightly and Emma, Edward and Elinor, William and Peggy, Mr. Thornton and Margaret... you've listed some of my favorites! Great list.

    1. Korin: Thank you! They are all such wonderful couples, aren't they? :)

  3. Yes yes yes! I love these characters. I know most of them and will have to check out the rest. I love the P&P pictures showing all the actors and actresses that have played Darcy and Elizabeth.

    1. Jenny: Aren't those collage pictures great? I was so happy to find them! :) And thanks. I'm glad you love many of these as well!

  4. Ah there's ome here I need to watch!

    1. Suey: If you haven't seen some of these, then for sure! I hope you enjoy. :)

  5. This list is so fun!!!! And attractive :).

    My favs are definitely on this list: John & Margaret, Elizabeth & Fitzwilliam, Anne & Frederick, Emma & John, Roger & Molly... I could go on!

    You've also reminded me of a few couples I need to get to know, like from The Inheritance and Lark Rise to Candleford for starters. I hope your Valentine's day has been filled with happiness!

    1. Courtney: Thank you! :D I'm so glad you agree with those couples. And I definitely think you'll love The Inheritance and Lark Rise! Both of those are quieter stories, as in there's no huge big angsty drama involved, but it's the character moments that stand out. And all the characters, not just the cute couples, are awesome!

  6. *sigh* I loved this post! I discovered some things I need to watch! Your first 4 are also favorites of mine! I did a TTT on my blog of my favorite couples, and I completely forgot Mr. Thornton!!! I feel so embarrassed and traitorous!!

    1. Kami: Thanks! And hey, forgetfulness happens! There are so many great couples out there, you just got distracted. :) I'll have to come check out who you listed!

  7. Lovely list! And great it includes William & Peggy. They are so cute together, but they are often overlooked I think.


Thank you so much for visiting my little corner of the internet! :)
