Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish!
This week's lists is the Top Ten Favorite Love Stories in Books. Anna at Anna Reads posted hers a day early in honor of Valentine's Day, citing the couple from the book and quote. I liked it so much I decided to do the same.
So, in no particular order, my Top Ten Favorite Love Stories in Books:
"What if you were really meant to be with someone? But you kept messing about and having the Horn and so on and you lost them."
Lizzie and Chaz
"I just want to let you know that when I look into my future, I see nothing but you.” That’s what Chaz had whispered in my ear at some point during the wedding last night. Then he’d whispered. “And you’re not even wearing Spanx."
Anna and Etienne
"Is it possible for home to be a person and not a place?"
Ron and Hermione
"There was a clatter as the basilisk fangs cascaded out of Hermione's arms. Running at Ron, she flung them around his neck and kissed him full on the mouth. Ron threw away the fangs and broomstick he was holding and responded with such enthusiasm that he lifted Hermione off her feet. "Is this the moment?" Harry asked weakly, and when nothing happened except that Ron and Hermione gripped each other still more firmly and swayed on the spot, he raised his voice. "OI! There's a war going on here!"
Mia and Michael
"The fact is, I love him. He's the boy I want and one day he'll be MINE."
Buttercup and Westley
"Do I love you? My God, if your love were a grain of sand, mine would be a universe of beaches."
Jaime and Landon
"I held her close to me with my eyes closed, wonering if anything in my life had ever been this perfect and knowing at the same time that it hadn't. I was in love, and the feeling was even more wonderful than I ever imagined it could be."
Jane and Mr. Rochester
"I have for the first time found what I can truly love–I have found you. You are my sympathy–my better self–my good angel–I am bound to you with a strong attachment. I think you good, gifted, lovely: a fervent, a solemn passion is conceived in my heart; it leans to you, draws you to my centre and spring of life, wrap my existence about you–and, kindling in pure, powerful flame, fuses you and me in one."
(Yes this quote was on the blog yesterday--it's one of my favorites)
Roark and Dominique
"You have been the one encounter in my life that can never be repeated"
Claire and Jaime
"For where all love is, the speaking is unnecessary"
