This Friday's Question:
Love Stories: What are some of your favorite fictional love stories?
Jace & Clary from The Mortal Instruments
Ah, the tortured, star-crossed lovers. Even after four books, they still can't be together easily, no matter how much I want that for them. I love that Jace's love for Clary makes him a better person and that it makes Clary stronger than she ever thought she could be.
Karou & Akiva from Daughter of Smoke and Bone
I love a good love story that transcends time and dimensions and anything else it encounters a long the way. Even after everything Karou has been through, she finds her way back to Akiva. And despite that ending, I think they will eventually find their way to each other again.
Kaylee & Tod from Soul Screamers
I loved Tod from the beginning. I thought Kaylee and Nash were good together, but I always had a soft spot for Tod and could tell he had feelings for Kaylee. It showed even through his arrogance and sarcasm. I just knew they had to end up together eventually. And the sacrifice he made for her! Be still my heart!
Jay & Violet from The Body Finder
I think the sweet, nurturing relationship Jay and Violet have should be a role model for all book relationships. Yeah, I like the drama-filled relationships, too, but every girl needs a guy who's really going to be there for her, through thick and thin. And for Violet, that guy is Jay. Rafe may intrigue her, but in the end, I think Jay and Violet will come out on top. I'm hoping, anyway...
Gabry & Eli from The Forest of Hands and Teeth
This is one of my favorite series EVER. Despite being chased by ravenous hoardes of zombies, a secret past, and being plagued by past loves, Gabry and Eli find comfort in each other. It gives one hope that when the Zombie Apocalypse is upon us, we'll all find our own Eli's to keep us safe.
So, who are some of your favorite literary couples? I'll be honest. It was hard to narrow down this list...I really can't help falling for all of the couples I read about. :)
