Booking Through Thursday
“Name a favorite literary couple and tell me why they are a favorite. If you cannot choose just one, that is okay too. Name as many as you like–sometimes narrowing down a list can be extremely difficult and painful. Or maybe that’s just me.”
It's kind of funny that this is the prompt for this week because I was just talking about Romeo and Juliet and how they are the epitome of love in so many books, songs, movies, etc. and it's kind of crazy if you think about it! They were like....what? 14 years old? Yeah, it was the time period....but the two of them end up KILLING themselves in the end because they are so "in love" and their families are against each other. It's just kind of amusing to me that they are seen as the perfect couple in a way.
Anyway, my actual favorite literary couple? I honestly don't know! This is kind of a hard question. When it comes to YA fiction, I love Hermione and Ron from Harry Potter just because we all knew it was coming and it was like "FINALLY!" when it actually happened. Those two were just meant to be.
Let's see...what else? I love the book and movie for A Walk to Remember so I'd have to say Landon and Jamie were such a sweet couple. Jamie helps change Landon in a lot of ways and he gives a lot back to Jamie as well. They are just lovely.
So...what about you? Who are your favorite couples from books? And if you posted this on your own blog, let me know!
