Top Ten Favorite Romances
This is simultaenously easy and hard, because I know some of my favorite romances, while there are others I'm unsure of. However, for the most part, this list is pretty darn accurate (and in no particular order). So here are some of my favorite romances in books! 

Edward Cullen and Bella Swan from The Twilight Saga by Stephenie Meyer
I can't not mention these two. One of the first couples I fell in love, and certainly not the last. And I don't care what everyone says--I'm a Twihard for life!
Have to mention: Ian O'Shea and Wanderer from The Host

Henry Schoonmaker and Diana Holland from The Luxe Series by Anna Godbersen
I will not discuss how this amazing series ended (in tears of anger), but I will always, always love Henry and Diana together, problems aside. They're meant to be together forever.
Have to mention: William Keller and Diana Holland

Sam Roth and Grace Brisbane from The Wolves of Mercy Falls by Maggie Stiefvater
This is seriously one of sweetest, best romances in YA that I've ever read. I reread parts of Shiver and Linger a while ago and was filled with butterflies as I remembered these two. So darn good.

Shane Collins and Claire Danvers from The Morganville Vampires by Rachel Caine
If these two aren't together when the series comes to an end--or ever, really--I'll probably die. I love these two together so much; I can't picture them otherwise. Love love love them.

Michael Glass and Eve Rosser from The Morganville Vampires by Rachel Caine
A vampire and a human--you've heard it before, but it's not the same. I love these two, and I worry about their fate as the series comes to an end. (My bet is that Eve will go vamp.)

Etienne St. Clair and Anna Oliphant from Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins
DUH. I don't even care about Anna--I just want Etienne all to myself. But in all honesty, they're so stinkin' cute together. They make my heart go thumpity-thump.
Have to mention: Cricket Bell and Lola Nolan

Alex Fuentes and Brittany Ellis from Perfect Chemistry by Simone Elkeles
Opposites attract in this series, and when these two attract it's awesome and steamy. If you haven't read this series, get on it. It's epic and amazing and just ahhh.
Have to mention: Carlos Fuentes and Kiara Westford, Luis Fuentes and Nikki Cruz

Eli Stock and Auden West from Along for the Ride by Sarah Dessen
This is probably my favorite Dessen book, even if it isn't her most romance-y. I just love this book, and I definitely love Eli, and him and Auden are such a cool couple.
Have to mention: ALL THE SARAH DESSEN BOOKS with happy romances

Ty MacFarlane and Gemma Toombs  from Stolen: A Letter to My Captor by Lucy Christopher
So this relationship would never really work--he kidnapped her--but I still want them together. Even though there wasn't really romance in this book, there was still something, and I love it.

Tom Anderson and Kate Folan from The Wereling Trilogy by Stephen Cole
A simple, short series that I absolutely love. And these two--love. They can't really be together since Tom's a werewolf and Kate has it in her blood, but there's something about these two that I really like.

What are some of your favorite romances? Share with me in the comments!


  1. Secret: I left a #10 off from my list, but that spot totally belongs to Edward and Bella. People can judge all they want, their relationship was so great and I still remember how I screamed into my pillow over some of their scenes. Dramatic? Probably, but they were so good.

    Thanks for stopping by!!

  2. Aw I LOVE the Morganville Vampire Series! And I love Perfect Chemistry, but Rules of Attraction is the one that made it on my list. I have Anna and the French Kiss too :) Great list!

    Here's my Top Ten!

  3. I almost added several of these to my own list! Claire/Shane, Michael/Eve, Eli/Auden...just to name a few. :D Awesome list!!

  4. Great list!! I wish I had more room on my list for Sam & Grace and how could I forget Edward and Bella LOL

    Thanks for sharing! here's my Top Ten Tuesday

  5. This is such a good list =)I especially love Sam & Grace and Edward & Bella...even though Twilight has all kinds of driven me crazy as of late I still loved then together when I first read the books back in 2007! I'm going to add Along For The Ride and Stolen to my TBR list!

  6. Great list! I haven't heard of a lot of these couples, but I need to get to reading these books!

  8. I totally forgot about Sam and Grace! I also really like the love story between the rockstar guy and the bitchy girl. I don't know why I can't think of their names now... Gah!
