Top Ten Tuesday 2/12/19: Favorite Couples In Books

ttt

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.

This week’s TTT topic is Favorite Couples In Books.

Happy cold and snowy Tuesday everyone. With Valentine’s Day around the corner the romantic in me could not resist this week’s Top Ten Tuesday topic. Romance is my reading catnip, it really is. This became a favorite genre from when I was a tween reading Harlequin love stories featuring cowboys on the ranch sweeping damsels in distress off their feet. My taste in romance novels has definitely changed throughout the years. I enjoy reading about unconventional couples who somehow make it work and I actually prefer bittersweet endings. It was hard to narrow my list down to just ten but here are a few of my favorite literary couples…..

1. Rhett Butler and Scarlett O’Hara in Gone with the Wind by Margaret Mitchell. These two are possibly my favorite literary/film couple of all time. I never get tired of watching GWTW. I love the tension between these two and the way they fall in love.

2. Adrienne and Paul in Nights in Rodanthe by Nicholas Sparks. I ugly cried the last time I read this one.

Good morning and happy February. I don’t mind February too much, it is cold but it’s a short month and there’s Valentine’s chocolates so that’s nice.

I haven’t posted anything since my last Sunday post but I am just about finished with my current read so I hope to have that review up this week. Today will be spent relaxing at home before watching the game later this evening. We get together and watch with family and it’s fun times, especially the food and the commercials. Aside from that it has been a really cold week with flurries and temps in the negative digits at one point but this week we’re expecting two days in the mid to upper 50’s.

Hello blog friends, can you believe January is coming to a close already? Not for nothing, but good riddance, that means Spring and Summer are each a month closer.

It’s been a pretty quiet week around here, which is a good thing. I had strawberry ice-cream yesterday because screw you Winter.

January was a good reading month for me, I read 4 books. Aside from one crochet pattern book I will post about next month, I have decided to read and review nothing but romance related books for the month of February since I have several on my TBR mountain that I want to get to.

Hello all, I am being lazy this week and my Sunday post is a day late, but that is okay. It is Monday morning and I’m cozy at home sipping my coffee and enjoying the extra day off for Martin Luther King Jr. Day.

Winter Storm Harper came and went this weekend and it didn’t get us too bad at all. We got some snow but then mainly hail and rain so now things are iced over. It is a whopping 2 degrees out there today and very windy. I will not venture out at all today.

Happy Sunday all. Why is it so cold out? Yikes. And that wind. These long winter months are so bleh. I can’t wait till the Spring arrives. For now I’ll keep wearing my extra puffy winter coat, which reaches down to my shins and has a big fur lined hat and is pretty much as close as I can get to leaving the house wrapped in my comforter.
