Have you ever become attached to a couple in a book? A couple that you shipped so hard that your heart would be broken if something happened to them? This is my top 5 favorite lovebirds!
5. Alana and Marko (Saga)
I love Alana and Marko. They are a beautiful forbidden love story, like a super badass Romeo & Juliet. They travel the Galaxy to save each other and their daughter, all the while fighting bad guys and struggling to survive. They’re hard not to love, even though Alana can be really annoying and Marko can be too soft. They are a good thing and I admire their love for each other. Not to mention, they are amazing parents.
4. Geralt and Yennefer (The Witcher)
I love Geralt and Yennefer for the exact opposite reason I love Alana and Marko. Geralt and Yennefer are complicated, and they don’t understand their love for each other the way Alana and Marko do. But, even though they struggle with their feeling they always try to help one another in the end. Geralt will risk everything for her, and he is her sweet spot. They represent the difficulties of love, and how scary it can be to have someone as your weakness.
3. Éowyn and Faramir (The Lord of The Rings)
These two are the kind of love that happens on accident. Éowyn is depressed and pining over Aragorn when she meets Faramir. He pulls her out of her slump and they fall in love. I wish this had been covered properly in the movies because it is really beautiful.
In the darkest of times, often love is what pulls you through. This couple embodies that sentiment so well. They need each other and find each other at the perfect time. They are the necessary love. The kind of love that can only come from the atrocities of war.
2. Mr. and Mrs. Weasley (Harry Potter)
They are relationship goals! They fit like a puzzle! Mrs. Weasley is explosive and over protective, while Mr. Weasley is calm and playful. They are like wine and chocolate, complimentary. Together they are the perfect leaders for their many children, and they are successful in love and parenting.
This is the couple I try to emulate. They have their flaws but their love is always in sync.
Damien and Jack (House of Night)
These two personify young love, and how sweet/bittersweet it can be. They fall head over heels for each other. Jack is the sweetest guy and Damien is so smart, they make a great couple. Every time they appear together I smile. I can remember the sweet feeling of high school love. I’m still with my high school sweetheart, and they make my heart flutter in remembrance. They take the cake for book romances. They endure so much, but their love never dies.
