Tomorrow is Valentines day and you know what that means…It’s the Top Ten Tuesday Love Freebie. We have free reign when it comes to choosing the topic and I decided to go with the top ten books that had incredible romances that I remember to this day.
Stay tuned for a little sneak peak of something at the end…
1. Rose and Dimitri from Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead
I loved the Vampire Academy series and I think a lot of it had to do with the relationship between Rose and Dimitri. I wanted my own Dimitri when I have finished the series. Their scenes were so intense, romantic and they would do anything for each other.
2. Celaena and Chaol from Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas
While I have only read three books so far in the series, I am rooting for Celaena and Chaol. I have a feeling they won’t end up together, but I have really enjoyed their interactions and the romantic scenes they had together.
3. Zoey and Stark from House of Night by P. C. Cast
While I couldn’t find any fan art of Zoey and Stark, I loved them together. I stopped reading after the 8th or 9th book and I remember wishing that they would end up together. This series was full of romance and it was incredible for a 15 year old me.
4. Tris and Four from Divergent by Veronica Roth
I read the books way before the films came out and honestly, this couple was one of my favourites and they were well portrayed on the big screen. I would say they were almost how I imaged them, but I can’t remember exactly.
5. Clary and Jace from The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare
This fan art is exactly how I depicted Clary and Jace, because I don’t like either of the actors who have portrayed Jace. I guess they will never match the image I conjured up when I was a teenager.
6. Elena and Stefan from The Vampire Diaries by L. J. Smith
Again, a series I read before it was turned into a TV show, and I am always going to say that Elena should have ended up with Stefan. While I never finished reading the series, I loved their relationship in both the books and the TV show.
7. Bella and Edward from Twilight by Stephenie Meyer
How can I not mention them on this list. 13 year old me lived for this relationship and the book series. The book that got me into YA and the relationship that started it all.
8. Nora and Path from Hush Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick
The nostalgia is kicking in because I read Hush Hush years ago, but I will never forget the crush that I had on Patch. Who doesn’t love bad boys that are actually angels?
9. Lina and Hades from Goddess of Spring by P. C. Cast
One of the first adult novels that I read (I loved all the books in this mythology series) and this romance stood out to me the most. It was so different to what I normally read and I may even revisit it one day to see if I enjoy it as much.
10. Raegan and Malakai from My Secret WIP
Surprise! I thought I would add my own characters in to this top ten, because why not? These are the best images that portray the look I have in mind for Raegan and Kai. I won’t give too much of the plot away, but this is a slow burning romance, not everything happens at once, but there is a ton of chemistry between these two characters, as you can see from the few lines I’ve plucked out below.
“Then their lips touched, and a fire sparked to life. At first it was slow, their lips touching tenderly and moving slowly. It was exactly how Raegan had imagined it would be, the softness of them, the plumpness. Her nerves went crazy. Then the fire burned brighter, causing her breath to catch and she opened her lips, inviting him in. It was all the encouragement he needed.”
I won’t give away any more than that. There are probably a few things I would change, but that is for the editing process.
What would your top ten books be? Do you agree with my choices?
