TGIF! (8)



TGIF is brought to us by Ginger at GReads!

It's a way for bloggers to celebrate the end of the week with a nice re-cap of their weekly posts and to answer a random question.




Mr & Mrs: Who are your favorite book couples?

YOU. YES, YOU.

Sound familiar? Yes, one of my favorite book couples of all time is Jessica Darling and Marcus Flutie, from Megan McCafferty's Jessica Darling series. Honestly, I think it's pretty much impossible to dislike this couple. (I LOVE THEM. No, seriously.) Or Marcus. I mean, really. Marcus is...perfection - every girl's dream (it's guaranteed that you'll swoon, no lie.). I couldn't get enough of him; I always wanted more. I could babble on and on about him, but I'll just throw a few quotes in here.

"IN OTHER WORDS, MARCUS, WE WERE PERFECT IN OUR IMPERFECTION."

"GONE FOR A WHILE
HOPING, ALWAYS, TO RETURN
IF YOU WILL LET ME"


Another favorite book couple of mine is Suze and Jesse from Meg Cabot's Mediator series. I know. Old school, right? But how can you not love that forbidden human/ghost relationship? They're one of the first couples I really fell in love with.

And, of course, I cannot leave out Mr. and Mrs. Weasley, from the Harry Potter series. They're both absolutely precious. Between his curious quirks, her tough lovin' and their combined compassion, they're a super couple always ready to bring relief.

These are just a few of my beloved book couples. I could go on, but that would take forever! (Plus I'd have a hard time getting myself to stop fawning over Mr. Flutie...)

  5. I've only read the first three books of the Jessica Darling series, but Marcus and Jessica's relationship put hearts in my eyes. Marcus Flutie is really something special. Great picks!

  7. I hope I can be half the loving couple as Mr. and Mrs. Weasley when I'm all grown up! They are so perfect. I love how when you've been together forever you are simply content to be.

  11. The Mediator series! I remember that :). I still have it, I think, might re-read it now that you've reminded me! I loved Jesse and Suze. And of course, Mr and Mrs Weasley are a hilarious pair. Nice choices!

  14. Mr and Mrs Weasley made my shortlist too, they are lovely, the right balance of humour and heartwarming. I haven't read the other books you mentioned.

  15. I need to read the Jessica Darling books because they sound amazing. Also, love the Weasleys. I picked some Weasleys, too, just not the parents. :)

  17. These book blogger hop questions just get better and better. This one looks easy but I think it’s a trick question. We all know it’s the same answer – the writing – but we all have different perspectives of what good writing is.

    Hop on over to my blog at http://www.howardsherman.net and read my three-prong answer as I explain why I’ll decide to pick up a book or put it down in under sixty seconds.

    Happy July 4th Weekend!

  18. I love, love, love the Jessica Darling series! I would literally laugh out loud when I was reading. And then I was jumping up and down when they finally got together! Great answer! Happy reading :)

  19. Hah! I totally thought about including Mr. and Mrs. Weasley!! Such a great couple <3

  20. Hopping through. Great that you thought of the Weasleys. They show how opposites not only attract but can work well together. And Ron and Hermione repeated that.

  21. Suze and Jesse are quite popular. I almost want to add them to my list b/c all your blogs reminded me of how cute their romance was! Darn, I'm going to have to buy those books...

    Happy hop!
