Top Ten Tuesday: Favorite Romances

UK book cover - the-scorpio-races PhotoTop Ten Favorite Romances--it must be time for Valentine's Day. I am a sucker for Valentines Day for no good reason. This year I got myself a book of Emily Dickenson poems as a valentines treat. Treat yo self, ladies! Without further ado (and I promise not to start spouting poetry) here are our favorite bookish romantic leads.

1. Rose and Demitri from Vampire Academy- the drama and poor Adrian, all together, Crazy Camper loved it.
“I've given up on you...Love fades. Mine has.”  ― Richelle MeadSpirit Bound
2. The Fault in Out Stars by John Green. OBVIOUSLY-- Augustus Waters is involved.
3. Jonah and Taylor in Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta.

“What do you want from me?" he asks.What I want from every person in my life, I want to tell him.More.” 
4. Eldric and Briony in Chime by Franny Billingsley. You people cannot fathom the build-up involved in this one.

5. Celia and Marco, the magicians from The Night Circus.by Erin Morgenstern. They build magical tents that are really love letters. It is weird unless you have read it. Then it is epic. I want someone to build me a magical room of trees made out of sheets of paper covered in love sonnets. 
“I would have written you, myself, if I could put down in words everything I want to say to you. A sea of ink would not be enough.' 'But you built me dreams instead.” 
6. Puck and Sean from The Scorpio Races when he shows up with the bread and looks like his is "courting" her I was all "let's bring back courting." It sounds dreamy (and bonus points for baked goods).

As always a big cheers of our whiskey sours to The Broke and the Bookish for hosting TTT, our fav weekly book blog meme!


  1. Rose and Dimitri! That is all. *sigh*

  2. okay, i've added Chime to my TBR and I think I NEED to read A Night Cicus, but you've convinced me of the whole list with #6. Sean Kendrick. I love how you have to say his whole name. Anytime I see his name or anyone mentions The Scorpio Races, it makes me want to listen to the audio book again. :) ~daphne

  3. Oh Sean and Puck. I don't think I've loved any couple more. EVER.

  4. Scorpio Races keeps popping up all over the place. I suppose I should pick it up. I passed when it first came out because I was totally disappointed with Shiver, but I LOVED Raven Boys so I think it's time to give this one a chance too. Vampire Academy is on a bunch of lists too. I intend to start that series eventually. http://wp.me/pzUn5-1pF

    1. I did a lot of eye-rolling during Shiver and the following books, but this is really nothing like that gooey teen romance. Get involved!

  5. Scorpio Races, OMG, YES! MMMM, carbs. How could you resist that? I guess that's why I love Peeta so much.

    I'd also have to add Blue and Adam from The Raven Boys, Tiny Cooper and his love of love in Will Grayson, Will Grayson and Buttercup and Wesley in The Princess Bride.

  6. Ok, so I still haven't read Vampire Academy (I know, I know), but loved all the rest of these. Especially, holy night, Eldric and Briony? *fanning*


Comments? Heck ya!
