Road Trip Wednesday and More!

First of all, lovelies, if you haven't seen, Susan is giving away a copy of LEVIATHAN on her blog!  Go!  Enter!

Also, Ali Cross is hosting an event on her blog!  Ninja Novel Revising Month aka NiNoReMo!  I joined (see the cute button in my side bar? Over there -->) and can't wait to get my revising on with Ali and the others.  So jump over there and check it out. 

Now, I'm ready to hit the road.  It is Road Trip Wednesday after all.  ;)

Today's topic on the YA Highway is:

Who are your favorite literary couples?

 This is tough.  I mean, there are so many that I love!

Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy, for one.

Ha! We have very similar tastes. I picked two of those as well, and I totally should have thought of Ron and Hermione too. Love them together!

Jennifer Hoffine said...

Yes, great picks, esp HP. I forgot about them (I only made it to page nine of my Goodreads list for my ideas).

Susan said...

Nice choices!

Hmmmm...my favorite...Edward and Bella? JUST KIDDING.

I'm not sure I have a favorite, but I do REALLY love Gilbert and Anne (from ANNE OF GREEN GABLES). Oh, and Lucy and George from A ROOM WITH A VIEW.

Susan, you made me spit coffee all over my keyboard!! lmao

I actually prefer Emma Woodhouse and Mr. Knightley over Elizabeth Bennet and Mr. Darcy. I think because Mr. Knightley is less of an ass overall. :)

And, even though they're not really a couple, I like the dynamic between Arthur Dent and Trillian in the Hitchhiker's Guide novels. They act like they're married, but they couldn't be further from it.

Heather Hellmann said...

Great picks. I adore Katniss and Peeta. Also, Ron and Hermoine are so cute together.

Pam Harris said...

I had to skip out of this one because it was SO Hard for me to think of any. Most of the couples I like never end up together, like Katniss and Gale and Bella and Jacob. It's a little sad actually. :(

Rebecca B said...

Even though I was Team Gale, I like this list. :)

Tracey Neithercott said...

How could I forget Ron and Hermione? For some reason my mind was stuck on Harry and Ginny, which wasn't one of those make-you-weak-in-the-knees relationships.

Kaitlin Ward said...

I am so Team Gale, but ultimately I think he was better off not ending up with Katniss, so...go Katniss and Peeta! haha.
I also <3 Ron and Hermione.

Erinn said...

Awesome. excellent list.

The Blue Lipstick Samurai said...

Ron and Hermione ftw! <3 Cute list. :)

Yahong said...

Oh, I adore Elizabeth and Darcy. Plus Jane and Bingley, too - they're both so sweet.

Kate Hart said...

WEASLEY IS OUR KING.

Sarah said...

Elizabeth and Darcy! Woo!

Alicia Gregoire said...

You're like the 3rd person who mentioned Elizabeth and Darcy. It's been so long since I've read that I'm now considering digging up my copy.

Krista said...

I definitely agree with all of your answers! Especially P&P. Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy's love never (ever) gets old.

Abby Stevens said...

Yes! Ron and Hermione, always. <3 Although there are a few other Weasley couples I love, too... ;)

KO: The Insect Collector said...

love these examples, and crazy about the images!

Alison Miller said...

Yes - def Katniss and Peeta. Frankly I wanted Ron all to myself. :)

Rachel Bateman said...

Lots of love for the Weasleys today!

beck nicholas said...

GREAT list there. I can't decide between Peeta and Gale... hate decisions..
=)

Jess said...

Oh Ron. If I didn't like Hermoine so much, I'd kidnap you and make you MY boyfriend.

Wow. That sounds a lot creepier than I thought it would...
