TOP TEN TUESDAY: My Top Ten Favorite Romances

Top 10 Tuesday is hosted at The Broke and the Bookish. Today’s topic is My Top Ten Favorite Romances.

Miss Elizabeth Bennett & Mr. Fitzwilliam Darcy from Pride and Prejudice
Who doesn’t have this on their list?

Anne Shirley & Gilbert Blythe from Anne of Green Gables
Gilbert Blythe… sigh. I actually suggested “Gilbert” as a name for our son since I loved this couple so much, but my husband quickly said “no”. I don’t think my husband understands just how dreamy Gilbert Blythe is.

Josephine “Jo” March & Theodore “Laurie” Laurence from Little Women
Yes… I picked Jo & Laurie and not Jo & Prof Baehr or Laurie & Amy. I wanted Jo & Laurie to marry and have lots of stubborn little children.

Mary Anne & Logan from The Baby-Sitters Club
I like that the shy girl gets the cute and devoted boy.

Anna & Etienne St. Claire from Anna and the French Kiss
I still have no clue how to pronounce Etienne’s name, but I freaking loved this book. The romance gave me butterflies.

Matthias & Cornflower from Redwall
Mouse love. How adorable!

Scarlett O’Hara & Rhett Butler from Gone With the Wind
Scarlett desperately needed Rhett and Rhett desperately needed Scarlett. I like to think they reconciled later on and worked together to become wealthy & powerful.

Maddie & Justin from Awaken
Love blossoms while trying to save the country. Do you put the one you love first or the cause you want to fight for?

Marianne & Colonel Brandon from Sense and Sensibility
For some reason I always admired Colonel Brandon’s quiet and respectful nature and thought he would be a steady and loving presence in Marianne’s life. 

Meg Murry & Calvin O’Keefe from A Wrinkle in Time
So sweet.


  1. Seriously, I couldn't agree more about Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy. How could anyway not include them on their list? :)

  2. Love Elizabeth and Darcy! I can't believe I forgot about Mary-Anne and Logan...they were one of my favs during middle school.
