Top Ten Book Romances I Think Would Make it in The Real World

I LOVE today’s post (I always say this but it’s true). There are so many amazing book romances, so it was tough narrowing down my faves that could actually last. Realistically, only 5 of the 10 will last…who’s your money on?

Top Ten Romances That I Think Would Make it in the Real World

elizabeth and mr. darcy

1Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy– I know they’re on my list for, like, everything, but I don’t care. If they can’t make it, THEN WHO CAN?!

2Anne and Gilbert– It’s a classic love/hate relationship turned love/love. Also, any couple that has a redhead in it is bound to succeed.

3Harry and Ginny/Hermione and Ron– I have the utmost confidence that these Hogwarts-sweethearts can keep it real. I mean, once you’ve battled Voldemort together, you can face anything (like bad haircuts and weight gain – I’m talking to YOU, Movie #7)

4Katniss and Peeta– I’m not really sure if I can imagine this couple outside the scary world Collins created, but I definitely think they can make it work. Psychotic episodes and all.

5Elliot and Kai (For Darkness Shows the Stars)– Although they have the whole class differences issue, in the real world now that might be less of an obstacle. Also their love is so epic it cannot be contained in just fiction!

6Anna and St. Clair (Anna and the French Kiss)– This one was a bit easier to picture. I mean, the ending of the book alone made me think it could last forever (or at least until the end of college).

7Yelena and Valek (Poison Study)— The couple that beats people up together, stays together. Also who poisons each other.

8Aria and Perry (Under the Never Sky)— I love this couple!! It’s one of the best romances I’ve read in 2012.

9Cassel and Lila (Curse Workers series)— They’ve had their ups and downs already – I mean they’re essentially mob royalty – so they’ve got the whole fighting but not killing each other thing down already!

10Sherlock and Watson– A romance to rock the ages. They could totally make it in real life because they’re awesome and strong and…not really gay, but haven’t you always thought it?!.

Statistically, at least ONE of these couples would divorce in the real world (Sorry, it’s true. I’m even being SUPER generous). Who do you think would split?

  • hahaha sherlock and watson! Love it 🙂

  • True! If they can’t make it, who can? OMG, that would be so depressing.
    Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy. 😉

  • Awesome choices! I definitely agree with your choices of Ron & Hermione, Ginny & Harry, and Katniss & Peeta. They’d definitely make it in the real world. 🙂

  • Tabitha S.

    AH. That’s so depressing that according to statistics only 5 of these couples would last… 😛 And I love Anna and St. Clair! 😀

    • I know…I didn’t mean to make it too real up in here. I mean, we are talking about fictional characters. 😉

    I haven’t seen Yelena and Valek around today but I adore them! Sherlock and Watson are incredibly original and awesome too! Love your list!(:

  • Becky

    I love your bromance choice at the end! Of course they would make it ;P!

  • Molly @ Words and Pieces

    I love that you picked Sherlock and Watson! I’m sad I didn’t add them to My Top Ten!
