BTT: Favorite Couples


“Name a favorite literary couple and tell me why they are a favorite. If you cannot choose just one, that is okay too. Name as many as you like-sometimes narrowing down a list can be extremely difficult and painful. Or maybe that’s just me.”

Earlier this year, we were asked who were our favorite literary heroes and heroines.  Put the two lists together, and you pretty much have my answer.  Sadly, there’s no Yoda on this list.

Jane Austen’s couples:  My favorite books, in no particular order, are Emma, Persuasion, and Pride and Prejudice.  You’ve got the “life-long friends who fall in love” (Emma), the “second chance couple” (Persuasion), and “bad first impressions” (Pride and Prejudice).

The Harry Potter series:  I’ve read some of the other responses and I concur with those who list Ron and Hermione as a favorite.  My mother is listing to the books, on a continual cycle, as she works on a large needlepoint project.  I sometimes help her, so I’ve only been hearing parts.  No matter how dense and stubborn Ron is, Hermione still seems to love him.  I also agree with those who listed Molly and Arthur Weasley — but then again, I think the Weasleys are one of the best families in books.

Han and Leia:  the Expanded Universe has put this couple through some ringers.  Yet, they’re still together.
