~ Top 10 Couples of 2017 ~

10. Wes and Nat from Frozen (Heart of Dread #1) by Melissa de la ruz and Michael Johnston

Genre: YA - Dystopia

I re-read Frozen in December before continuing with the series and I absolutely love Wes and Nat in it. They are so different at the start but I love how their romance develops throughout the book adn the journey that they have gone through. It just such a sweet romance and I love them together.

9. Brigid and Charlie from The Last Piece of my Heart by Paige Toon

Genre: Adult - Romance / Chick Lit

I adore Paige's books and I loved Brigid from meeting her in previous books. I loved her and Charlie's romance and how emotionally charged their relationship once. They were so beautifully perfect for each other. I loved every moment of their relationship throughout this book.

 8. Kell and Lila from A Conjuring of Light (A Darker Shade of Magic #3) by VE Schwab

Genre: Adult - Fantasy

I absolutely loved the relationships between Kell and Lila throughout the whole series. It was so slowly developed and I loved that. They met in the most unconventional way and went through so much to get to where they could be together and I loved every moment of it and always rooting for them. It was perfect and beautiful.

7. Ruby and Arcus from Fireblood (Frostblood #2) by Elly Blake

I fell head over heels for Ruby and Arcus as a couple in the first book, Frostblood, and that did not change throughout Fireblood. I love them as a couple because no matter what they face they still trust each other. I love that although Arcus is a Frostblood and his court have a hatred for Firebloods he still finds space for Ruby. And even after Ruby finds more of her own kind her heart still belongs to Arcus. It's beautiful and romantic and legendary.

6. The Goblin King and Leisl from Wintersong (Wintersong #1) by S Jae Jones

Genre: YA - Fantasy

I was really torn betweek including Leisl and The Goblin King because to be frank they don't have the most healthy relationship in the world. The Goblin King lies and tricks Leisl all the way through the novel however I can't help but love them and root for them. At times I hated them but by the end I saw that their love for each other was a little dysfunctional but utterly beautiful. I can't wait to see it blossom throughout the other books in the series (hopefully).

5. Sophie and Luca from Mafiosa (Blood for Blood #3) by Catherine Doyle

Genre: YA - Romantic Suspence

Again, this is one I wasn't sure whether I should include because Luca and Sophie don't have the most healthy relationship. It's a bit touch and go with her being the most caring sweet girl and him being in the mafia and killing people. But in Mafiosa they prove that their love can conquer everything and I loved them in this one. They broke my heart and made me sob but then put it back together again because they are truly perfect for each other.

4. Kiaran and Aileana from The Fallen Kingdom (The Falconer #3) by Elizabeth May

Genre: YA - Fantasy

Aileana and Kiaran are probably the most unconventional couple of all on this list... Fae hunter and Fae but somehow it's perfect and it works. Kiaran is an ass most of the time but he pushes Aileana to be her best self and honestly that's exactly what she needs. I love them and I really want Elizabeth to write more about them... please?

 3. Lena and Sebastian from If There's No Tomorrow by Jennifer L Armentrout

Genre: YA - Contemporary Romance

Lena and Sebastian just had to make it onto my list of favourite couples. I absolutely adore them and it's one of my fave stories to read. Best friends who fall madly in love. However in this one Lena has some major emotioanl trauma to work through first and to see Sebastian deal with it all and still love Lena for exactly who she is makes this one of my favourite books and them one of my favourite bookish couples.

2. Declan and Juliet from Letters to the Lost by Brigid Kemmerer

Genre: YA - Contemporary Romance

I love Declan and Juliet and I mean LOVE them. I couldn't put this book down and I seriously fell in love right along with them. They are so mismatched yet perfect. He's a bad boy with a criminal record and she's the perfect student but they connect over heartbreak and develop their epic love story through letters. They are just so sweet and perfect to read and re-read over and over again.

1. Feyre and Rhysand from A Court of Wings and Ruin (A Court of Thorns and Roses #3) by Sarah J Maas

Genre: NA - Fantasy

Of course the top spot was going to go to Feyre and Rhysand... why wouldn't it? They are perfect. They're soulmates and I adore everything about them. This year I re-read books one and two before reading ACOWAR and seriously I fell in love with them all over again. Even in book 1 I picked up on elements that I hadn't first time around and it just made them an even better couple in my eyes because of everything that they have gone through and they still end up fighting for each other. 

Who were your favourite bookish couples this year? Let me know.
