The question for this week over at Booking Through Thursday:
“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.”
Loved this question. Given that I read a lot of mush, almost all the couples I have read about so far have been made for each other. 🙂
Some of them, however, were just too perfect, and it is those that I will mention here.
1) Jamie and Landon – A Walk to Remember
A love story to remember, and a couple to remember. What they did for each other was beautiful.
2) Francesca and Robert Kincaid – The Bridges of Madison County
I can’t think of another couple who could read each other’s minds the way these two could. Have never been able to get them out of my head since I read the book.
3) Leslie Parrish and Richard Bach – The Bridge Across Forever
The way they broke down the walls built around each other’s hearts and accepted each other was just awesome. Some parts of the book will stay with me always. What touched me more was the fact that they were a couple in real life as well.
4) Soraya and Amir – The Kite Runner
I just adored the way the two always stood by each other, come what may.
5) Laila and Tariq – A Thousand Splendid Suns
Again, I loved the way they were always there for each other. Come to think of it, I loved Mariam and Laila’s pair too. 🙂
I hope I’m not forgetting any ‘Made for Each Others’. Would love to know who your favourites are.
