Every Tuesday the ladies over at The Broke and the Bookish give a top 10 topic up for discussion.
This week’s topic is Swoon worthy books and it’s definitely a topic I can get excited about.
Levi & Cath from Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell – I’m a broken record where Rainbow is concerned – I don’t think anyone develops a relationship as naturally as she does. Since I knew this was going to be a tough week for me to pick just ten I limited myself to one couple per author, but it was a REALLY hard choice.
Cricket & Lola from Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins – I love Cricket. Seriously the nicest guy. And Lola wasn’t perfect, but she was perfect for him.
JohnAfter & Meg from Going to Far by Jennifer Echols – Serious sexual chemistry for a book where the characters don’t have sex. Yikes.
Perry & Aria from Under the Never Sky by Veronica Rossi – Very well developed relationship, especially for a dystopia where there is so much other stuff going on.
Scarlet & Rhett from Gone with the Wind by Margaret Mitchell – In my mind Rhett is the original bad boy who falls in love. This one is a heartbreaking swoon novel, because their relationship definitely develops slowly and naturally, but is doomed by each character’s pride.
Edward & Bella from Twilight by Stephanie Meyer – I’m embarrassed to put this on here, but I read this knowing none of the hype – literally saw it on a shelf (pre-blog) and thought “haven’t read a vampire book since high school” and decided to give it a shot. I was seriously obsessed – this relationship took over my mind until I had consumed the entire series. In hindsight I recognize the relationship as totally flawed, but while reading, not at all.
Tris & Four from Divergent by Veronica Roth – Pretty much ditto what I said for Aria & Perry. Please ignore Tris & Four from Insurgent (I’m not planning on reading Allegiant).
Ben & Molly from Talk Me Down by Victoria Dahl – This was my first ever contemporary romance novel. I didn’t expect to buy the relationship, but ended up falling in love with both characters (with a side of really hot sex). Definite SWOON.
Adam & Mia from Where She Went by Gayle Forman – These two broke my heart and put it back together.
Macy & Wes from The Truth About Forever by Sarah Dessen – I loved their games of Truth and the way they both helped each other through their respective issues.
