Ten OTP’s That Pull At My Heart
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. 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 Ten OTP’s That Pull At My Heart.
If you know me well, then you know I ship so many bookish couples. I just love romance and it’s one of my favourite things to read. So today I share some of my favourite OTP’s. There are some oldies here and some new couples. And in reality it was really hard to choose only 10 – but here we go. Like always these are in order.
Clary and Jace from The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare. One of my first real OTP’s, I just love these two together. Not the most likely pair, they clash a lot – but that makes them who they are. I loved how they grew throughout the whole series and even in other series, with their story still pending.
Emma and Julian; Mark and Keiren from The Dark Artifices trilogy by Cassandra Clare. Basically, I am not prepared for the last book. I don’t know who’s going to survive. Who is going to be together? But all I know is that my heart is going to be torn. You can read my reviews of Lady Midnight and Lord of Shadows.
Nix and Kash from The Girl From Everywhere by Heidi Heilig. My heart. They are both so adorable together. I loved the slow burning love, the hesitation (most of the time). I loved that they knew so much about each other, and slowly their feelings changed. The reader is able to see how much they care for one another, even if they don’t see it themselves. I just love this OTP. Check out my reviews on The Girl From Everywhere and The Ship Beyond Time.
Lazlo and Sarai from Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor. I didn’t just fall in love with Lazlo and Sarai individually, but together. My heart. I loved that they were innocent but explored at the same time. I loved how they interacted and how beautiful it was. Check out my full review.
Cinder and Kai from Cinder by Marissa Meyer. Ah these two. They go through a hell of a lot throughout the series and it’s hard. I love how they go through many ups and downs to get to where they are. It’s messy and complicated, but so beautiful and adorable.
Kestrel and Aria from The Winner’s Curse by Marie Rutkoski. I fell in love with the romance. Oh, it was just so beautiful. Slow, but just so gorgeous and breathtaking. I just swooned half the time. Both Kestrel and Aria don’t even realise how they feel about each other, but it’s beautiful to watch. Rutkoski is a mastermind. The combination of forbidden love between a slave and someone of high standard and the blissful moments are perfect.
Jamie and Ryan from Him/Us by Sarina Bowen and Elle Kennedy. These two boys. They killed me. I loved seeing their relationship grow and change. It was so nice seeing them tease each other, but you also know it’s how they love one another. Both novels are heartbreaking for each of them, but I loved seeing a different side of sports romance. It’s was so good.
Taylor and Jamie from Queens of Geek by Jen Wilde. One of my favourite tropes is ‘Friends to Lovers’, so you have no idea how excited I was about Taylor and Jamie. They were adorable together. I was squealing and couldn’t keep myself contained. I loved how much Jamie understood Taylor and knew when to step back. But he also knew when to push her and try and get her out of her bubble. Check out my full review.
Paisley and Jagger from Eyes Turned Skyward by Rebecca Yarros. These two break my heart. And still, do every time I re-read the book. I loved this burning romance and how perfect Paisley and Jagger fit. I loved how they both weren’t perfect, but learnt from one another. They have to be one of my favourite Rebecca Yarros’ OTP’s.
Echo and Noah from Pushing the Limits by Katie McGarry. Noah and Echo, they are both broken but with the help of each other, they start to break down each other’s walls. Noah shifts not only his world but Echo’s as well. What I also love is that we get to see this couple grow throughout the whole series and even beyond that.
And that is it! Wow. What are some of your OTP’s? Do we share any that’s the same? Let’s Chat!
