Top Ten Tuesday

Literary Lovebirds

Happy Valentine’s Day, y’all! In honor of the day of love, Top Ten Tuesday, hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, is highlighting readers’ favorite ships, OTPs – all love, all the time! Here are my all-time favorite literary lovebirds!

The List

Buttercup and Westley from William Goldman’s gorgeous The Princess Bride are an absolutely magical couple, ruled by ‘twoo love.’ The lengths Westley goes to to save his beloved Buttercup make my heart melt every time.

Anna Karenina and Count Vronksy of the Russian classic Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy are a pair in forbidden love, made more difficult to bear due to the society in which they live. Although terribly tragic, Anna and Count Vronsky’s tale is beautiful

I fell in love with Tessa Gray & Will Herondale being in love when I read Cassandra Clare’s Clockwork Angel. I adore that the couple’s romance is a slow burn and it doesn’t hurt that Will is gorgeous in my mind!

Zia Rashid and Carter Kane from Rick Riordan’s Kane Chronicles series are precious together. I’m currently reading the second book in the Kane series, The Throne of Fire, and Carter’s dedication to finding his missing love is incredible.

Nancy Drew and Ned Nickerson of Carolyn Keene’s Nancy Drew Mystery Stories are a pair of wholesome sweethearts. Their courting-type relationship is the kind I’d like my boys to have when they hit high school. However, I do realize it’s the 21st century!

Karou and Akiva make another gorgeous, literally and figuratively, couple. I met these two while reading Laini Taylor’s Daughter of Smoke and Bone and look forward to discovering exactly where their destined love goes in the remaining books in Taylor’s trilogy.

Love, Maggie
