I think I might be addicted to doing these top tens! This week is my top ten OTP. OTP is One True Pairing for those who have no idea. There have been some great couples throughout literature. Normally I would go in depth and explain why they are in my top ten. But I think that would be quite repetitive. So here is my top ten:
- Rose and Dimitri from Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead
- Catherine and Heathcliff from Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte
- Elizabeth Bennett and Mr. Darcy from Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
- Aragon and Arwen from Lord of the Rings by J. R. R. Tolkien
- Ally and Noah from The Notebook by Nicholas Sparks
- Sydney and Ridge from Maybe Someday by Colleen Hoover
- Arthur and Catalina from The Constant Princess by Philippa Gregory
- Amani and Jin from Rebel of the Sands by Alwyn Hamilton
- Katey and Boyd from No Choice But Seduction by Johanna Lindsey
- Travis and Abby from Beautiful Disaster by Jamie McGuire
Rose and Dimitri
I love that these two truly understand each other. Their duty to their job is one of the most important aspects of their lives and instead of abandoning their duty for each other; they find a way to keep the best of both worlds.
Catherine and Heathcliff
This is one of my all time favourite books. If only they had ended up together, a whole world of hurt might have been prevented. I believe they should have been together.
Elizabeth Bennett and Mr. Darcy
Oh to be able to put aside your prejudices and overcome your own pride to be with the one you love. Many people tend to allow their pride and their prejudices to stop tem from getting to know someone, let alone pursue a relationship with them. Especially at that time, it was incredibly frowned upon.
Aragon and Arwen
This love is beautiful. She knows that as she is an elf, she will watch him grow old and die. She knows that she will have to live on with the grief of losing the one you love. But she would rather be with him and stay in Middle Earth than leave with her people.
Ally and Noah
The letters he writes to her, every day for a year. He builds her dream house. He tells her their story after she loses her mind to Alzheimer’s. The way he loves her is unending. Given the opportunity to go back to him, she takes it. It’s a beautiful, beautiful love story.
Sydney and Ridge
The one thing that puts this couple into my top ten is what they do towards the end of their love story. Ridge is deaf and hasn’t spoken out aloud since he was a young boy. He speaks out aloud to Sydney and Sydney learns sign language.
Arthur and Catalina
Catalina is Katherine of Aragon. She is betrothed and then married to Arthur, Prince of Wales, Henry VIII’s older brother. In The Constant Princess, the love between the two is secret and she is absolutely devastated when he dies.
Amani and Jin
Amani is fiercely independent and is determined to escape to the big city. But after meeting Jin she changes her plans. Not because “of a boy” but because something inside of her tells her to.
Katey and Boy
In a time that women did not travel once they were married, Boyd and Katey end up ready to travel the world together. They were the perfect together.
Travis and Abby
Some disagree with me entirely here and that’s okay. It’s not a tale of them changing each other, it really is a tale of them bringing out the best in each other.
