February 12: Favorite Couples In Books

Tell me what you think! Who are your favourite couples? Are there any you really don’t like? What type of relationships do you root for?

 

Kitty and Mr Adams

What Kitty Did Next by Carrie Kablean — I know Lizzie and Darcy are the classic choice, but if you wanted to change things up, this as a lovely slow-burn romance and really develops Kitty as a character in her own right. The best Pride and Prejudice retelling or sequel I’ve read.

Lydia and John

Speaking of Pride and Prejudice, another perfect couple are Lydia and John from The Witch of Willow Hall by Hester Fox. There are misunderstandings and near misses but these two could easily be the next Jane and Rochester, or Lizzy and Darcy.

Rhen and Harper

A Curse So Dark and Lonely by Brigid Kemmerer.

My Review // BookDepository // Wordery

 

Drystan and Micah

Pantomime by Laura Lam   This wasn’t a couple I saw coming at the beginning of the series, but they go through so much together and are perfect and supporting of each other throughout. Love them!

Prunella and Zacharias

Sorcerer to the Crown by Zen Cho — These two combine my absolute favourite couple dynamic: loyal and sweet Hufflepuff boy, cunning and practical Slytherin girl.

Beast and Sybella

Dark Triumph by Robin LaFevers.

Bryony and Beast

Bryony and Roses by T. Kingfisher — This is a lovely, meandering Beauty and the Beast retelling with Beauty as an avid gardener and lover of bad poetry, and Beast as a gentleman scholar and mechanic.

Celia and Evelyn

One of my favourite books ever? Celia and Evelyn from The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid. Heart-wrenching and beautiful.

Princesses Esofi and Adale

 The Queen of Ieflaria by Effie Calvin. Opposites attract. Quiet and religious, formal, duty-driven Esofi and rebellious, outdoorsy Adale are adorable together.

Helena and Justin

The Matrimonial Advertisement by Mimi Matthews.

  1. Great list! I really want to read The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo this year, especially as it took me until the end of last year to find out it’s queer, and I agree with Sybella and Beast – I LOVE their relationship. I think they’re actually another example of a Hufflepuff x Slytherin match, actually, Beast is so sweet.

    1. ooooh! I really hope you get around to Dark Triumph sometime! Personally, I actually preferred it to Grave Mercy (which is rare for me and second books). I hope you enjoy that one too! 😊
