This week's topic is a rewind, meaning we can choose an old one we missed. I picked my Top Ten romances I think would last in the real world. Sorry to those who saw it yesterday, for some reason I thought it was Tuesday already and was wondering why the linky wasn't up x_X
- Cat & Bones, from Jeaniene Frost's Nighthuntress novels
What I love about Cat & Bones is that they work reall well as a team. It's usually them against hte world, and not some artificial drama about whether they can stay together.
- Kaylee & Tod, from Rachel Vincent's Soul Screamers series
Once these two found one another they just clicked. I can't imagine them apart anymore.
- Rose & Dimitri, from Richelle Mead's Vampire Academy series
They kick ass and after all they've gone through I think they could overcome anything together.
- Adam & Mia from Gayle Forman's If I Stay / Where She Went
Their personal journey of growth and how they went their separate ways to find each other again has brought them to a higher level. They both have their passions and careers and there's so much respect between them now.
- Rule & Shaw from Rule, by Jay Crownover
They are such rich and wonderfully drawn characters! Once they finally saw one another for what they were... yeah, I can't imagine anyone coming between them anymore.
- Jamie & Claire from Diana Gabaldon's Outlander series
Epic journey together. No way they wouldn't last after all they've gone through and learned about one another.
- Anna & Cas from Anna Dressed in Blood, by Kendare Blake
In the real world, if Anna wasn't a ghost? Totally. Then again, her being a badass ghost was part of the reason why he felt attracted to her and fell for her. Hm...
- Abby & Travis from Beautiful Disaster, by Jamie McGuire
Don't hit me. But I think 2 years later they will be divorced or one of them will be dead. Or they'll have a kid and a terrible marriage. Their so-called love is a catastrophy waiting to happen...
- Luce & Daniel from Lauren Kate's Fallen series
I haven't read Rapture yet but I'm still sort of hoping Luce will decide to finally leave Daniel and have a life of her own. I really liked Torment as a book because she begins to question things.
- Tris & Four, from Divergent by Veronica Ross
At the end of book two... I'm not sure. I love them both as characters and as a couple, but do I think they would last in the real world? If there was no threat for them to conjointly fight against? After the things they've kept form each other? I'm just not sure.
So this is it... I'm not perectly comfortable with all my choices to be honest. What means 'in the real world' anyway? If one of them wasn't a vampire/angel/demon/whatever? Isn't that often part of the attraction in the first place? If anyone else has chosen this topic, I'd be very curious to see their answers. What do you guys think of my topic/choices? And what topic did you pick today?
