Booking through Thursday

Here's the latest question at Booking:

“Name a favorite literary couple and tell me why they are a favorite. If you cannot choose just one, that is okay too. Name as many as you like–sometimes narrowing down a list can be extremely difficult and painful. Or maybe that’s just me.”

This is a hard one. I'm gonna be predictable and start with Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy. There's a reason why this a cliche'. They aren't the typical couple that meets, falls in love, has some kind of traumatic experience, and then gets to love happily ever after. No, in fact she can't even stand him at first and is completely amazed when he professes his love. That scene where he proposes is my favorite in the book. Even though he's such a jerk when he does it and she's so nasty when she refuses, it still seemed romantic!

Next I would pick Dominick and Thomas, the twins in I know this much is true. This is another that's not your typical love story because the love story here is brotherly love, which can be just as heartbreaking. Thomas may be the one is the hospital dealing with his schizophrenia but Dominick is more messed up in some ways. It's not an easy read but I felt like I had been through an amazing experience after reading it.

Does that mean you finally finished reading I Know This Much is True? The last I heard you were too angry about it to finish:)

Yeah, I finished it a long time ago actually and I ended up loving it. hehe So maybe I shouldn't give up so quickly on the Twilight series!
