I love all of these bookish couples! What about you?
Who do you love?
Who do you love?
What a fun list! I would add Dorothy Sayers' Peter Wimsey & Harriet Vane,Jane Austen's Anne Elliot & Captain Wentworth, and my favorite Georgette Heyer couple, Gervase St Erth & Drusilla Morville (The Quiet Gentleman).ReplyDelete
Oh, I love The Quiet Gentleman. And Anne and Capt. Wentworth are a favorite couple as well. As for Sayers' Peter Wimsey series, it's one I still need to try. Thanks, Lisa! :)Delete
Love this list :) I'm with you on Mina and Jonathan - definitely would be on my list.ReplyDelete
They're a true and equal partnership. :)Delete
I'm seeing Mercy and Adam on a lot of lists today and rightfully so. They are a great couple.ReplyDelete
I love them. :)Delete
That's a fun list! I haven't read any of these titles except the Mercy Thompson Series and I'm not even up-to-date with it. :pReplyDelete
It's hard to keep up with a series, isn't it?...And there's always more books out there that I haven't read than I have. It's my bookish curse. ;DDelete
Laura and Alonzo for sure! And, yes, Kiera and Sebastian have to be on here.ReplyDelete
They're the best, aren't they?Delete
The only I've read about on your list is Laura Almonzo. Been a long time since I read those books. I am doing a reread (re-listen) of Deborah Crombie's mystery series and it contains one of my favorite couples - Duncan Kincaid and Gemma James. I'm also very partial to J.D. Robb's Eve Dallas and her Roarke. :-)ReplyDelete
I'll have to check both of those out. Thanks! :)Delete
Ooh, Laura and Almanzo are a good answer. Wish I'd thought of them!ReplyDelete
This is my Top Ten Tuesday post.
They helped define romance for me. :) Thanks for commenting!Delete
I don't know why I didn't think of Jean and Joe from A Town Called Alice. I love that book and have read it so many times. My favorite literary couplesReplyDelete
They're great, aren't they? I love the book and the mini series they made back in the 80s. :) Thanks for commenting!Delete
A big yes to Mercy and Adam! I very much enjoy their relationship.ReplyDelete
They're kind of awesome. :)Delete
Yes! Mina and Jonathan! They're such a great couple! Dracula is one of my favorite books. :)ReplyDelete
It's one of my favorite books, too!! :)Delete
Gilbert Blythe and Anne Shirley are one of my favorite bookish couples. Laura and Almanzo are my favorite couple on your list. I think reading the Little House books when I was a kid was my first foray into romance. My Great-Grandma gave me the books for my birthday and read them with me. She LOVED the romance between Laura and Almanzo.ReplyDelete
I love the romance between them, too. And I can totally see why Anne and Gilbert are one of your favorite bookish couples! :)Delete
#2 - I remember reading 'a room with a view' and liking it but now I kind of don't remember anything but the movie. I did like george and lucy though I must admit, I didn't remember his nameReplyDelete
sadly, I didn't read the other books on your list. it's good as readers we get to enjoy different books.
have a lovely day.
It is good that we all read differently. I'm often inspired by what other people are blogging about; it broadens my own bookish horizons. :DDelete
Mina and Jonathan- love that choice! And Raederle/ Morgan haha- get out! Nobody ever talks about those books lol.ReplyDelete
I love them! :D (And more people should talk about them, don't you think?)Delete
Oh my goodness, yes for Adam and Mercy! I'm insanely addicted to the series! I just recently did a re-read and I loved it even more than the first time. Yes, to George and Lucy too! I didn't read A Room With a View but the movie is one of my all-time favorites and I've watched it soooo many times! :)ReplyDelete
The Mercy Thompson series is one I can read over and over again, too! And ya gotta love George and Lucy. (The movie version is great, isn't it?)Delete
What a nice list! I actually love Mina and Jonathan from the Bram Stoker's Dracula (1992)ReplyDelete
They're so great, aren't they?Delete
I’ve read the Little House Books, Dracula and Room with a View and I agree with you there on all counts!ReplyDelete
I also second Lisa’s choice of Lord Peter & Harriet Vane.
I don’t think I read many books with couples in them. I feel like Elizabeth Bennet and Fitzwilliam Darcy are probably overused, but I do love that book!
I felt like everyone would have Eliabeth and Mr. Darcy on their lists....which is why I didn't put them on mine.Delete
I actually haven't read any of these, but Why Mermaids Sing has a beautiful cover!ReplyDelete
That's the first C.S. Harris book I ever read and the one that hooked me on this series. :)Delete
Mina and Jonathan! What an original addition!ReplyDelete
I love them. :)Delete
Mina and Jonathan! I love Dracula but I'd never have thought to add those two.ReplyDelete
I really need to read the Mercy Thompson series at some point. I read the first one way back when but it just didn't click for me. However, I love the Alpha and Omega spin off so I think I just need to try again.
Dracula is one of my favorite books. :) Thanks for commenting.Delete
Oh I love seeing Kiera and Sebastian! Love your list of couples.ReplyDelete
Kiera and Sebastian are a great couple, aren't they? I love those books. :)Delete
I do love Adam and Mercy together. :-) And John and Sig. And Mina and Jonathan. I love your list, Lark.ReplyDelete
Thanks, Wendy! I had fun putting it together. :)Delete
Hi Lark, thanks for this great list about bookish couples. I was drawing a blank and then I realised that one of my favorite bookish couples is John Tomassetti and Kate Burkholder in Linda Castillo's Kate Burkholder mystery series. Only read the first book in this series but Kate and John have alot of chemistry.ReplyDelete
You're right! I like them, too. :)Delete
There are a few here I've read and enjoyed (Laura and Almanzo, Raederle and Morgan) though I wouldn't have included them in my favorites. There are a few others on my want-to-read lists. If I had done this TTT, I would have chosen, among others: Anne and Gilbert (the Anne of Green Gables series); Lord Peter Wimsey and Harriet Vane; Roderick Alleyn and Troy (the Insp. Alleyn mysteries); Colin and Penelope (Romancing Mister Bridgerton by Julia Quinn), and Winnie the Pooh and Piglet (hey, no one said the couples had to be romantic!)ReplyDelete
Winnie the Pooh and Piglet are perfect! And maybe Snoopy and Woodstock, too?Delete
