TGIF at GReads!: Favorite Fictional Love Stories (2)




TGIF at GReads! is a weekly bookish meme hosted by

Every week book blogger participants answer a different book-related question and share in the meme-y fun with other book bloggers.


This Friday's (1/19/2012) Question:
 
 
 Love Stories: What are some of your favorite fictional love stories?


_______________________ 


Pride and Prejudice
by Jane Austen

I probably don't need to explain this one. Don't we all know the epic love story between Elizabeth Bennet and Mr. Darcy? If you happen to not know from reading the book, then what are you waiting for? Make it so, people!


The Greyfriar (Vampire Empire, #1)
by Clay & Susan Griffith

Adele and Greyfriar are just so sweet together. This isn't a young adult sappy love story, but more of a grown-up, but still sweet type, with a lot of realism going on and no "insta-love," or "insta-lust." Their romance seemed like it was based on real love, so it made an impression on me when I read it last year.

Clockwork Prince (The Infernal Devices, #2)
by Cassandra Clare

I squee over Jem and Tessa's love story in this book of The Infernal Devices series! It's so sweet, but I won't say much about it because that'd be spoilery. Definitely one of my favorites.


The Iron Queen (Iron Fey, #3)
by Julie Kagawa

Meghan and Ashy-poo in this book, well all of the Iron Fey books, are awesome. I like Meghan with Puck, too, but she picks Ash, and that's fine with me. This book takes their relationship to the heights of chivalry where Ash officially becomes Meghan's knight. Whatever happened to real life chivalry, anyway? I'm old-fashioned enough to still love knights rescuing princesses. Call me lame if you will....


Those are a few of my favorite fictional love stories, although this list really only shows the tip of the iceberg. What are yours, my friends?

  5. Now I really want you to read Kate Daniels cos I'm sure you're going to want to add them to this list. I completely adore Pride and Prejudice. It's been a while since I've read it but it's such a classic story.
