Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish. Each week they post a new Top Ten list that members at The Broke and the Bookish will answer. Everyone join as you please. This week’s topic is: All About Romance Tropes/Types and I am focusing on Slow-burn romances!
Slow-Burn romances are my favourite! I love seeing the couple grown both with each other and with themselves. So here are some of my favourites. Some of the romances are contained to one book, while others spread over a complete series. And like always these are in no particular order.
Rose and Dimitri | Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead: Rose and Dimitri are probably one of my robably one of my favourite couples of all time. And them becoming a couple is a lengthy process. It takes time and resilience, but it was so beautiful. At first, they both had attraction, and as the novels went on it turned into something more.
Percy and Annabeth | Percy Jackson and the Olympians by Rick Riordan: This is a slow-burn romance like no other. But, what I love about these two is that they started off as friends and as they grew older it turned into something more.
Ruby and Arcus | Frostblood by Elly Blake: These two are one of my new favourite couples. There romance too nearly the whole book to take off, but the interaction and reaction between the two beforehand was one fire. | Full Review
Jace and Clary | The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare: Although there was heaps attraction between these two, there was also a lot standing in their way. This slow-burn romances had a lot of hiccups on the way.
Alec and Magnus | The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare: I don’t know if I can really include this couple in here, but I had to. Alec and Magnus are simply amazing.
Kestrel and Arin | The Winners Trilogy by Marie Rutkoski: One of my favourite couples by far. The romance between these two is defiantly slow-burning. But, because of that, it was beautiful.
Cinder and Kai | The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer: This is a difficult romance to put in a category because they did fall for each other quickly, but after setbacks, they have to fall again and boy is that a slow-burn.
Adrian and Sydney | Bloodlines by Richelle Mead: These two could have killed me. They are all about the slow-burn romance, and it was beautiful.
James and Rachel | Every Series by Ellie Marney: If you haven’t read this series, just stop everything and go start it now. Because it’s beautiful. And the romance – yes, please.
