Road Trip Wednesday is a “Blog Carnival,” where YA Highway’s contributors post a weekly writing- or reading-related question and answer it on their blogs. You can hop from destination to destination and get everybody’s unique take on the topic.
Today’s Topic: In celebration of Valentine’s Day, what are your favorite literary couples?
*Before you begin reading, you should know that some of the explanations below contain mild spoilers. Just sayin’.
For some reason whenever it comes to Road Trip Wednesday prompts I can never pick just one. Such is the case with my favorite literary couples… there are so many great ones! I have a feeling as I read everyone else’s posts, I’m going to end up remembering even more favorites. Here’s my list of the ones I love:
Sam and Grace from Maggie Stiefvater’s Shiver, because they were so freaking considerate of each other. I can’t think of a sweeter, less drama-filled couple (well, other than the whole wolf thing…).
Adam and Mia from Gayle Foreman’s If I Stay, because even when everything else was lost, Mia chose Adam. Plus, that scene when he cries…
Romeo and Juliet from William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, because even though they were selfish and immature, they did what they thought was right for love.
Ron and Hermione from JK Rowling’s Harry Potter series, because they were funny and magical and constantly kept me guessing.
Lennie and Joe from Jandy Nelson’s The Sky is Everywhere, because they had the hottest kisses and they just seemed to get each other.
Laila and Tariq from Khaled Hosseini’s A Thousand Splendid Suns, because I love best friends who become more.
Ryan and Sarah from Elizabeth Scott’s The Unwritten Rule, because even though I’m only a quarter of the way through the book, I’m already rooting for them.
What about you? What literary couples make you swoon?
