YA Highway posts a question, and the community answers it on their own blogs.
This week's question: Who are your favorite literary couples?You know -- the ones you like by themselves, but LOVE together!
Hmmm. This is a great (and fitting) question!
I usually go more for the smoldering, unrequited love than the couples who get down and dirty. I feel like EVERY week I mention Jane Eyre. Are people getting tired of that yet? Or Persuasion. Again, I mention it nearly every week.
Still, there is so much passion and desire in Anne and Wentworth's relationship, albeit in a really civil and buttoned-up kind of way. When he sits down to write the letter, proclaiming his love for her, and then leaves... well, it just gets me every time.
Now for something completely different. Claire and Jamie from the Outlander series by Diana Gabaldon. Their passion is anything but buttoned up and civil. It's downright steamy. If you're interested in a time-traveling nurse from the 1940s heading back in time to the 1700s and getting forced into a predicament with a young, hot Scotsman: look no further.
Now head to the Highway to see what the rest of the crew says!
