Top Ten Tuesday ~ Favorite Couples In Books

It’s time for another Top Ten Tuesday! Don’t forget to head over to That Artsy Reader Girl and join the linkup!


Favorite Couples In Books

I guess this is an appropriate near Valentine’s Day topic! Should be a fun one, and it doesn’t really need any more explanation…

    1. Coriel and Kent in Summers at Castle Auburn by Sharon Shinn
    2. Eleanor and Reginald in Phoenix and Ashes by Mercedes Lackey
    3. Claire and Dean in Summon the Keeper by Tanya Huff
    4. Ned and Verity in To Say Nothing of the Dog by Connie Willis
    5. Paige and Lucas in Industrial Magic by Kelley Armstrong
    6. Kate and Thomas in Sorcery & Cecelia: or the Enchanted Chocolate Pot by Patricia C. Wrede and Caroline Stevermer
    7. Cecelia and James in Sorcery & Cecelia: or the Enchanted Chocolate Pot by Patricia C. Wrede and Caroline Stevermer
    8. Tony and Lee in Smoke and Ashes by Tanya Huff
    9. Henry and Jeff in Indexing: Reflections by Seanan McGuire
    10. Arwen and Aragorn in The Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien

Random side note 1: I like book version of Arwen & Aragorn. Not movie version.

Random side note 2: Henry and Jeff are typically male names, but this is a heterosexual relationship. Tony and Lee are a homosexual relationship, though sadly it didn’t ever get much of a chance to develop before the series ended.

Happy almost Valentine’s Day, if you celebrate it! Mr. Wyrm and I will be staying home for Valentine’s proper, though I may see about picking up cheesecake for dessert at home.

And now that I’ve pulled out my list of favorite books to find my favorite couples, I think I need to re-read (at least) one of them. You know. So they don’t feel neglected or anything. It’s been way too long since I’ve done a good re-read binge.

    1. I think it’s mostly that I get mad at the way film-Arwen replaced Glorfindel, and so she had strikes against her before she got to really show me why I should like her. But also there’s just something about their screen relationship that makes me kinda cringe. I’m really not sure why, but I don’t get the sweet feeling that I’m sure is intended from the love scenes.

    1. Thanks! It’s hard for me to explain all the details of why, but I guess the movie just didn’t live up to my (admittedly high) expectations in that instance.

    1. True, I do love the Faramir and Eowyn pairing. Then again, I think Faramir is my favorite character in the series, so I’ve never been sure if Eowyn was “good enough”, LOL.

  1. My only wish is that Arwen and Aragorn’s relationship was better represented in the books. There’s a lot about them in the appendixes, but Arwen doesn’t show up a whole lot. I prefer Eowyn and Faramir, though. 😉
