First of all I want to say Happy Valentine’s Day to everyone. Here in Brazil we celebrate this Holliday on June 12º.
But aside from being Valentine’s Day, today is also Tuesday and what do we do on Tuesdays? Yep, that’s right. IS MEME DAY!!!!!
Today Cambria is giving us something romantic to babble about and I had a great time coming up with this post.
I hope you like it.
Who are your favorite book couples?
Oh, my gosh. I loved this question cose I’m a sucker for book romance. Wait, let me take a breather first cose I’m kind of hyperventilated with excitement here. Inhale, exhale. Inhale, exhale. Ok, I’m a little better.
Lets get this post going then.
My first couple is Cathy and Heathcliff from Wuthering Heights. *Sigh*
They are so in love and my eyes get tears just remembering their fate. Vengeance, love, hate, torment. I love my romance the same way I love my drinks: Fiery, strong, addictive and that leaves me with a bittersweet aftertaste that makes me want more and more. For those that don’t know the story, Heathcliff was a little boy that Cathy’s dad picked out of the street. He fell for Cathy and their life was anything other than a turmoil from start. They lose each other in midst of rage and misunderstanding. Can you feel the love? The tragic, stormy love that leave you crying, broken and asking for more? Yep, I sure do.
My second couple is Vlad and Mina from Dracula.
He travelled oceans of time to be with his true love once more. How can anyone resist such an undying love from an undying man? He is evil, ruthless, a murderer that I’m unable to resist. I guess everybody knows this love story, but in case you don’t, Vlad is this really evil Romany Prince that when retunes home finds his Princess dead. She killed herself cose she tough he was dead and simply couldn’t live on without him. He decides to find her no matter what and bind himself with the dark side of the force. He lives for centuries after her and then, one day, he meets Mina and she is like a mirrored image of his lost love. I’ll stop here cose I don’t want to make your life easy if you don’t know this story yet. Go read the boom or watch the movie cose is sooooo worth it.
My next loving couple is Kat and Bones from Night Huntress Series. Oh, they are wonderful together and I love them with all my heart.
Kat is this half vamp that thinks all vamps are bad and then, one fine night she meets Bones. Oh, I can still remember her first words to him: “Want to fuck?” So romantic. LoL
She tries to kill him, he beats her head open, you know, the classic love story.
The best thing about them is how they are soooo not perfect. They fight, they don’t get along all the time, but they love each other so much that they would never try to change the other. They love every little flaw and every little mistake about each other.
This is the kind of stormy, fiery love that makes the life or the undeath worth it. Love them.
For last but not least. I give you Lara and Yuri from Doctor Zhivago.
I know, I know, that’s not a book, but is such a heartbreaking love story that I couldn’t left out of this post.
Zhivago meets Lara, they feel something and then life happens. The war breaks out and they keep missing each other. I mean, I was biting my fists for most part of the movie from the tension. Their lives are constantly brushing each other but there’s always something happens.
This is tragic, I’ll not lie to you, but when you finish watching this you’ll have a whole new way of seeing things. Yep, life changing stuff.
Well, this was my post. I hope you like it and for more posts from this meme go to cambriahebert.com.
