Blog Chain - Literary Love

My turn on the old Bloggin' Chain :D The ever awesome Shaun picked this topic. Since the chain started on Valentine's Day, Shaun wanted to know:

Who is your favorite literary couple?

This one was actually tougher for me to answer than I thought it would be. For me, it's a tie. Between:

Alex and Rane from
















and Jamie and Claire from


















I don't know if it's because both of the series are really long so you get to spend a lot of time with the characters or what, but both of these couples are just the epitome of devotion, passion, and undying love to me. Alex and Claire are both feisty, strong women and Rane and Jamie (a smuggler among other things and a Scottish Highland lord and outlaw and smuggler respectively (hmmm maybe I just have a thing for smugglers?)) are swoon-worthy. Just amazing couples, amazing stories, love love love them!!

Stop by Eric's blog to check out his answer from yesterday and head on over to Margie's on the 26th to see who she loves! :)

Hmmmm, sounds like a smuggler theme to me ;)

Two more books I'll have to add to my "must read" list though. So thanks!

I've never read Wild Swan, and I couldn't get into Outlander when I tried it several years ago. I wonder if I should give it another try.

I still need to read Outlander. I know, I know, you hate me now.

I'm not sure if I can pick a favorite. It seems to change with every book I read. Sad, but true.

Favorite literary couple? Oooh, that's a tough one. I'm going to have to go with the first one I remember reading: Meg and Calvin from A Wrinkle in Time.

I've never read either of these?! Perhaps I should add them to my TBR pile? Geez...it just keeps growing and growing and...

Oooh, I've only read Outlander, but I keep meaning to get the next book in the series - they are just so gigantically thick and I know that I will get sucked in and lose at least two days reading it nonstop, so I am waiting to find a good time. But yes they are an excellent couple!

Don't know if smuggling is my thing but I love the danger!
