Top Ten Tuesday- Book Romances That Would Make It

Top Ten Tuesday is a really cool original feature/weekly meme created over at The Broke and The Bookish. Each week they post a new Top Ten List that bloggers join in on answering... and today (July 31st) I'm one of them :)


Wow another crazy hard one!!  I will admit that 5-10 years ago I would've been using my yes stamp a lot on this one, but I'm much less optimistic about love lately so...  Anyway I'm going to have to oust most couples who come from any paranormal/other worldly place.  I'm just not sure if things would go the same way if the other person wasn't a ghost (The Ghost and the Goth) or a vampire (Twilight)... so with that said here's what I got:

1.  Nick & Norah (Nick & Norah's Infinite Playlist)- They're both teen hipsters with a vocab out of Dawson's Creek.  They have a lot in common and I think could be a real couple.

2.  Anna & Etienne (Anna and the French Kiss) - (even though I wouldn't mind having him for myself haha) I think these two would make it in the real world for sure... I mean they made it into Lola and the Boy Next Door!! 

3.  Rachel & Ethan (Something Borrowed)- It seems unlikely given their start, but somehow I like them.

4.  Annabel & Owen (Just Listen)- I'm not a big believer in H.S. romance making it for the long haul... but Owen was such a great guy, so I think it's believable.

5.  Allie & Noah (The Notebook)- I like this one for the real world because they did break up for a while and then came back together... that's the best way for young first love to work IMO.

And that's it... I mean we are talking fictional romances, so it's kind of hard to picture a lot of them making it :(


  1. Awesome picks! I agree with your choice of Annabel and Owen. :) Just Listen was an amazing book.

  3. Great picks! Annabel and Owen- what a great choice. I would also hope that Wes and Macy from The Truth About Forever.

    And of course, as I am a NUT about the books: Jessica and Marcus.

    1. I ALMOST put Jessica and Marcus on here, but the last book I read was book 4 and that didn't end so well....

      agreed that Wes and Macy would've been a good one too!!
