Literary Couples.

Monday, February 14, 2011

I already posted something like this about a year ago, when I first started blogging, but I wanted to sort of re-post it again since it is Valentine's Day. Now I'm not super into Valentine's Day or anything, but I do tend to love it and appreciate the thought behind this occasion. So to celebrate this event on the blog, I decided to re-list some of my favorite literary couples.

1. Henry De Tamble and Claire Abshire
The Time Traveler's Wife by Audrey Niffenegger

2. Jamie Sullivan and Landon Carter
A Walk to Remember - Nicholas Sparks

3. Ron and Hermione
Harry Potter series - J.K. Rowling

4. Allie and Noah
The Notebook - Nicholas Sparks
- I actually put them here because of the movie version. But because they are book characters, I had to add them here :)

5. Jane Eyre and Mr. Rochester
Jane Eyre - Charlotte Bronte

6. Severus Snape and Lily Potter
Harry Potter series - J.K. Rowling
- yes, you read it right ;) :Spoilers: Snape is probably the most misunderstood character in the history of literature, and Lily Potter has got to be the "perfect girl" that everyone just wanted to be with. Now I'm no James Potter hater, but man, I didn't expect him to be the jerk, and for Snape to be actually the "good guy."

7. Liesel Meminger and Rudy Steiner
The Book Thief - Markus Zusak
8. Samantha Kingston and Kent Fuller
Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver

I know some of them aren't technically couples, but I put them there anyway not because of the 'relationship status' but because of how they feel with and about each other.

How about you? Who are your favorite "couples"from books?


  1. I didn't like Henry and Claire, but I am SO with you on R & H! :D

    Happy Valentine's Day!

  2. +JMJ+

    My heart broke for Snape when I read Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.

  3. I love this list. I have read everything but #8 and that one is high on my TBR.

  4. I love Jane Eyre and Mr. Rochester especially after watching the mini series and I'm also looking forward to the new movie that's coming out.
