Top Ten Book Romances That Would Make It In the Real World

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish

Top Ten Book Romances
That Would Make It In the Real World

Before we begin, the topic is in honor of Jamie (contributor to The Broke and the Bookish and of the Perpetual Page Turner - two blogs you NEED to be following if not already!) and her upcoming wedding, so of course a big, big CONGRATULATIONS! to her.

I suck at this topic. Characters are already so real to me that I genuinely believe they exist in real life and end, begin, or continue as they are at the end of the book. So, because I'm lame and couldn't think of ten, I've also included a few couples who I'm fairly certain would not last! (Hope that's not too depressing...)

They'll Make It, No Matter What
1. Brittany + Alex Fuentes
Perfect Chemistry by Simone Elkeles

2. Puck Connelly + Sean Kendrick
The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater

3. Lyra Belacqua + Will Parry
The Amber Spyglass (His Dark Materials #3) by Philip Pullman

4. Augustus + Hazel
The Fault In Our Stars by John Green

5. Lola + Cricket
Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins

6. Travis + Harper
Something Like Normal by Trish Doller

7. Rusty + Honor
In Honor by Jessi Kirby
**SPOILER** Well...if they do end up together, anyway, I think it would work.

Sorry, But I Think It's Over

1. June + Day
Legend by Marie Lu
You have no idea how much it saddens me to put them on this side of the list - and I sincerely hope and pray to Marie Lu that I'm wrong - but their circumstances, their upbringing, everything they face? I just don't know.

2. America + Prince Maxon
The Selection by Kiera Cass
This might have to do with the fact I just don't like America, but sorry - she'll screw it up somehow.

3. Tessa + Will
The Infernal Devices series by Cassandra Clare
I seriously believe they have too much passion, tension and emotion with each other to get past it. Maybe they'll end up together in the books, but I don't think it would last in the real world. More Will for meeeeee!

4. Tessa + Jem
The Infernal Devices series by Cassandra Clare
Basically I just think Tessa will be alone hahah. (Truthfully? I think she might die.)

Which couples do you think would make it?

    Nice TTT! I love that you put Lyra and Will on there! The ending broke my heart and I woud really like for them to be together!

    I like it that you mixed it with some couples who wouldn't make it. I love the books by Cassandra Clare, but I agree with you that those relationships probably wouldn't work (in real or book world)!

    Definitely agree with most of this list - and love that you've added couples that wouldn't work! Glad to see someone else has Lola and Cricket on their list as well as Puck and Sean!

    Happy Tuesday!

    Tessa, Will and Jem should just have a three-way relationship and be happy forever because Cassandra Clare would never go and start killing them all off on us. Right? Right?!?!

    Okay, so I'm kidding. Kind of.

    I can't believe I forgot Lyra and Will!!!! YES YES!!!!

    Yay for Augustus & Hazel and Travis & Harper (latter made my list as well!). And I really hope Tessa ends up with Jem, mostly because I want Jem to be happy! I'm scared for CP2 to come out... Great picks!

    I definitely think that Lola & Cricket are happily together in SF, and also believe that Rusty & Honor totally meet up every chance they get (while Honor's in school anyway). And I almost forgot about them, but YES to Puck & Sean <3

    Love your list! Puck and Sean and Travis and Harper made mine as well. And I like your couples that WON'T make it list too! Gosh, do you really think that Tessa will die?? I think she's going to end up with Will, but I would rather see her with Jem:)
