February 14: Top Ten Favourite OTPs
I’m not a huge shipper of characters in general as I tend to take fictional relationships at face value, but there are a few that I am more partial to.
1. Katniss Everdeen and Peeta Mellark (The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins)
Katniss and Peeta were the first fictional couple I genuinely shipped (who would pick Gale?!) They balance each other out perfectly.
2. Bella Swan and Edward Cullen (The Twilight Saga by Stephenie Meyer)
I used to proclaim myself a Bella/Jacob shipper, but upon finally finishing reading the series I changed my mind (and Jake’s happy with his conclusion anyway).
3. Allie Nelson and Noah Calhoun (The Notebook by Nicholas Sparks)
Their love story is so cute: who wouldn’t ship the girl with the guy who sent her 365 love letters?!
4. Clare Abshire and Henry DeTamble (The Time Traveler’s Wife by Audrey Niffenegger)
My favourite standalone novel of all time features two of my favourite characters: the entire story follows the development of their love story throughout time.
5. Sephy Hadley and Callum McGregor (Noughts and Crosses by Malorie Blackman)
There’s something about forbidden love that is so enticing, and it doesn’t come much more forbidden (for all the wrong reasons) than in this fantastic YA dystopian.
6. Maddie Whittier and Olly Bright (Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon)
An unlikely friendship that led to a wonderfully cute romance, the nature of the plot certainly heightened my positive feelings towards these two.
7. Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey (Fifty Shades of Grey by E.L. James)
Unpopular opinion though it might be, I actually like Ana and Christian’s story – there’s a lot of plot and character development.
8. Rosie Dunne and Alex Stewart (Where Rainbows End by Cecelia Ahern)
Sometimes the right person is standing right infront of you, but it takes losing them to realise it: this novel is all about the character development.
9. John Grogan and Marley (Marley and Me by John Grogan)
In terms of friendships, there really isn’t a tale (or tail) that comes close to man and dog. I love this true story of a family and their furry friend.
10. Albus Potter and Scorpius Malfoy (Harry Potter and the Cursed Child by J.K. Rowling)
Although they’re not official, anyone with an ounce of sense could see that these two are made for each other. Scorbus 4 lyf!
