Top Ten Tuesday–Book Romances That Would Make it in the Real World


Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by the fabulous Broke and the Bookish.

Each week we post our Top Ten on a variety of book related topics.
This week’s theme: Book Romances that Would Make it in the Real World

My List:

Violet & Jay from The Body Finder Series by Kimberly Derting : If you have not read this series yet, you are missing out.  Violet and Jay were childhood friends until they finally expressed their feelings for each other. Jay is supportive, good looking, kind, brave and all the girls have eyes for him. They work so well as a couple.

Kate &Vincent from The Revenants series by Amy Plum – Even though Vincent fights the urge to die for others, and every now and then doesn’t exist, these two are committed.

Puck & Sean from Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater – Loved this book, loved these characters…destined to be together in my books.

Celia & Marco from The Night Circus  by Erin Morgenstern– What wouldn’t these two do for love?

Dash & Lily from Dash and Lily’s Book of Dares by Rachel Cohn and David Leviathan – It all started with a little red notebook…

Eleanor & Edward from Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austen – It took so long for these two to get together, they better stay together for life

Hermione and Ron from the Harry Potter Series by JK Rowling – a relationship based on friendship is always a wonderful way to begin. I loved watching Hermione and Ron fall in love.

This list proved more difficult to create than I thought. Perhaps it's because many of the couples I read about go through so much together...perhaps it's because I read a lot of Dystopian fiction which doesn't always have a happy ending:)
I do believe in Happy Endings though, and that you can find one true love. The theme of this week's Top Ten Tuesday was in honour of Jamie's (Broke and the Bookish/Perpetual Page Turner) upcoming wedding.

A toast to love and laughter, and happily ever after.

Jamie, I wish you the happiest of happily ever afters! Much love and congrats.


  1. Hooray for Violet and Jay! I can't wait to read the next 'Body Finders' book to find out what happens!

  2. I agree with Natalie. Yay, Violet & Jay! :)

  3. Ron & Hermione is the OTP of all times! If Emma and Rupert got together I'd die of happiness. ;)

    My TTT.

  4. Awesome picks! I definitely agree with your choice of Hermione & Ron. I didn't even think of using Violet and Jay on my list! Thanks for sharing. :)

  5. Ron and Hermione would definitely make it! And, right?! This list was harder to make then it seemed. :P

    My Top Ten

  6. Oh man, Puck/Sean are all kinds of fabulous. I really need to find time to re-read that book because it's just SO GOOD.

    Totally love Violet/Jay as well. =)

    You can find my list here.

  7. Ron and Hermione aren't on my list, but I totally think they would make it. :) Can't believe I forgot them! O.o great list!
