I LOVE reading about fictional couples. Honestly, if the book doesn’t have a least a bit of romance, I probably won’t enjoy it. I LIVE FOR THE SHIPS. So I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to shout my love for these OTPs from my blogging rooftop. Prepare for an overload of exclamation marks and caps lock. (seriously, there’s a lot of caps lock in here.)
1 Kaz Brekker & Inej Ghafa, Six of Crows
MY FAVORITE BOOK COUPLE OF ALL TIME. They are the light of my life. The treasure of my heart. The Bastard of the Barrel being completely head over heels for The Wraith? I LIVE. “If I couldn’t walk, I’d crawl to you” I MEAN, COME ON, that quote messed me up so badly that I told Leigh herself that I’ve never recovered from it. I could put soooo many quotes that absolutely ruined my life but that one just seals the deal. I cry- EVERY. TIME.
2 Kell Maresh & Delilah Bard, Shades of Magic
MY SECOND FAVE BOOK COUPLE OF ALL TIME. I would die for them. They are so perfect for each other and it’s so fun to see Lila stumble into his life and turn it completely sideways. Kell’s an absolute cheeseball for her. So many good things happening there, you guys.
3 Jude Duarte & Cardan Greenbriar, Folk of the Air
ENEMIES TO LOVERS YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAS!!!!! Manipulating each other! Insulting each other! Despising how much they love each other! Knives! Crossbows! Unwanted declarations of love! Running a kingdom while battling their feelings for each other! ALL GREAT THINGS.
4 Vasya & Morozko, Winternight Trilogy
Where to even begin? Frost demon winter-king who is resentful of how much he’s fallen in love with this young girl who grows into a powerful witch? And he tries to fight it but ends up just totally showing her how much he cares for her and just being all around super super cute together? Amazing. Standing ovation for Vasya and Morozko.
5 Neil Josten & Andrew Minyard, All For The Game trilogy
OK TBH, when I first read TFC and realized they were gonna be a thing, I was like..uh, no thanks. Why do people like this? And then it happened and I was like UHHHH COOL COOL I LOVE THEM SO MUCH AND I LOVE THAT THEY’RE CAT PEOPLE IN LOVE TOGETHER, AMAZING 5 STARS THANK YOU.
6 Kai & Cinder, The Lunar Chronicles
I’m a sucker for the royal prince love interest! They’re so CUTE and soft and adorable. Yes. Love that.
7 Agnieszka & Sarkan, Uprooted
All-powerful recluse sorcerer and a strong-willed witch? YEP. Major Vasya and Morozko vibes here. THE SCENE WITH THE ROSES??? I’m truly just into the grumpy, heart-of-stone guys who have heart eyes for a kind-hearted, spitfire girl. I literally could read about those couples all day long.
8 Taylor Markham & Jonah Griggs, Jellicoe Road
A contemporary couple! Hooooo boy! They are SO cute together. When Taylor says, “If you weren’t driving, I’d kiss you” and then Jonah immediately pulls over to do just that? Yeah, I died.
9 Percy Jackson & Annabeth Chase, Percy Jackson
A TRUE CLASSIC OF AN OTP. I’m about to start a Percy Jackson re-read and I’m excited because of how frickin’ adorable they are. Awesomeness.
10 Harry Potter & Ginny Weasley, Harry Potter
OK, this is kind of a cop-out because I really could NOT think of a tenth couple that I really shipped. And honestly, I didn’t really ship anyone in Harry Potter when I first read it and I still don’t now… I guess if I HAD to pick, it’d be Harry & Hermione (I know I know that’s controversial!! Ahhhh) but as I’ve grown older I’ve warmed up to Harry and Ginny a lot. In the books. In the movies they’re super awk. But I really like the idea of them as a couple, especially when they grow up.
Yay for OTPs!! Any other great couples I missed on this list?
