Top Ten Book Romances That You Think Would Make It In The Real World
Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created over at The Broke and the Bookish which I adore and therefore chose to adopt into my weekly blog posts!
These choices might be a little more hopeful on my part but as I was remembering these books and their romances I realized that the relationships that I thought would work in the real world revolved around the partners accepting one another for who they really are (even if one of them is an assassin) and the two of them growing together into a loving relationship (even if they didn’t like one another very much in the beginning).
Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger from The Harry Potter series – These two went through puberty together, there really isn’t anything more horrifying.
Elizabeth Bennet and Mr. Darcy from Pride and Prejudice – Who hasn’t seen hate turn to love (or vice versa, I’m afraid).
Snow White and Bigby Wolf from Fables – Sure, one of them is The Big Bad Wolf but Snow sooths the animal in him and their strong personalities work well with one another.
Liadan and Bran from Son of Shadows – Liadan brings Bran back from the brink of darkness within himself and it is then that he is able to be happy enough with himself to fully love another, (one of my favorite couples in literature).
Cimorene and Mendanbar from The Enchanted Forest Chronicles – Mendanbar loves Cimorene and all of her crazy ways, even the way she kind of loathes him upon their first meeting and her desire to live with dragons rather than be rescued by a knight in shining armor.
Ismae and Duval from Grave Mercy – She’s an assassin and he loves her just the way she is. “Whenever you are ready, or if you never are, my heart is yours, until Death do us part. Whatever that may mean when consorting with one of Death’s handmaidens.”
Claire and Jamie from The Outlander Series – I have only read book one and though I didn’t love it, their love was the one constant that I adored throughout the novel. They grow together and accept one another with all of their flaws.
Scarlet and Robin from Scarlet – She is a rather prickly sort and he loves her anyway, they work together as a perfect team.
Caitrin and Anluan from Heart’s Blood -Caitrin finds her home in Anluan and he finds the peace he has spent years yearning for.
Katniss and Peeta from The Hunger Games Trilogy – “Real or not real?”
Who do you guys have on your list of couples that could make it in the real world?
Ismae and Duval! Totally!! And for some reason I think I forgot Hermione and Ron? I was like half asleep when I did this one apparently…..
Some great choices there!
Here is my Top Ten post!
Yay. Heriome and Ron. Don’t think I’ve read any of the others. I’m really starting to think I need to read even more than I do. I just haven’t read half of the book some people have. Strange….
Still, looks like a great list and you made it to ten. HOWEVER, number 10 I couldn’t see working. I really can’t. I just don’t feel there was enough resolution to their story and relationship for me. A bit of a shame really!
Bahahahahaha!! True. They went through puberty together. That is horrifying. If Hermione can love Ron through that…they’ve got it made.
Katniss and Peeta! They’re on my list too. They would definitely make it.
Come check out my top ten!
Awesome picks! I definitely agree with your choice of Ron & Hermione. 🙂
Awesome picks! I had one and two on my list too!
I’ve always been a Peeta fan! Great list (:
Who doesn’t love Elizabeth Bennett and Mr. Darcy…world’s greatest couple ever! 🙂
