Fictional Love Must Last

I recently read Amy and Roger's Epic Detour by Morgan Matson and I fell in love with Amy and Roger's stories. I didn't want the book to end! I was sucked into their story and when the book finished, I kept thinking that in my fictional world of what happens next is that Amy and Roger stay together forever-because I don't think I could handle it if they didn't! So it got me thinking about what other fictional couples I must have stay together forever. What can I say? I'm a sucker for a good romance and when I find a great couple, I want them to stay together. Like, I might cry if they ever broke up forever. We all have those, right? (I hope so!) So here's my made up world forever together list:

Side note: My list doesn't include couples who we know stay together (like Anne and Gilbert) but instead couples who stay together in my made up what happens next world.

Katsa and Po in Graceling

-OK, so I know they end the book with an open relationship and all and leave it up to life and fate, but in my mind, they keep that relationship forever and never meet anyone else that's a perfect fit like they are to each other.

Ryan and Sarah in The Unwritten Rule

-I could say this about pretty all of Elizabeth Scott's couples, but Ryan and Sarah in The Unwritten Rule rank among my favorite. They have a sweet, tender romance, even if it is rocky and messy to get there. I read the book wanting them to be together and was happy when they were-so they better stay that way!

-I've also gotta give a shout out about Hannah and Finn from Something, Maybe. I adore them too!

Lucy and Nicholas from Hearts at Stake (The Drake Chronicles)

-Sigh...Nicholas and Lucy. I'm a sucker for romance, but I'm especially a sucker for best friend-turned-romance storylines. So of course I was sucked into Lucy and Nicholas's story! Plus, they have many swoon-worthy moments and lots of witty banter-I love the two of them together. The entire series is good, but I'll admit-I read it for Lucy and Nicholas.

Anna and St Clair from Anna and the French Kiss

-No list of couples who should stay together would be complete without Anna and √Čtienne St. Clair. SIGH....I fell in love with St. Clair and the romance between Anna and St. Clair is another friendship first that turns to romance. They have a great banter between them, they tease and have fun and they also rely on each other during the serious times. If they ever broke up, I think I would be the one who needed lots of chocolate, break up songs, and kleenex-I couldn't take it! Seriously, stay together Anna and St. Clair-for my sake!!

Veronica and Logan from Veronica Mars

-OK, not a book, but they are fictional characters. And in my made up world of happy endings forever, this two are king and queen. I remember watching season one and hating Logan and then slowly feeling sympathy and understanding for him and then liking him. When Logan and Veronica first kiss, it's a surprise but it makes so much sense you can't help but realize these two were meant to get together all along. The show ended prematurely and I'll admit, I haven't yet watched all of season three because I want to leave the story with Logan and Veronica together. But if I got my way, they'd be together forever!

Who are your fiction couples that must stay together forever?


  1. Awesome list! It's so true, there's something about fictional couples that means they MUST stay together, even if it's not totally realistic. (Like, how many teen romances last a lifetime in real life?!) I guess that's the beauty of fiction, it's NOT real life :D

  2. It is funny how passionate we can feel about fictional couples. Which is why Lost in Austen kind of drove me crazy. Elizabeth decides to come to modern day to nanny, really? And NO ONE can be with Darcy besides Elizabeth. I know it is just suppose to be a funny movie but no matter what I tell myself it still bugs.

  3. I love Veronica and Logan too! :( I'm so sad that show ended. I recently watched the whole thing on streaming Netflix.

  4. I am so glad to find another person who hasn't watched season 3 of Veronica Mars! I LOVE this show, and have seen seasons 1 and 2 many times, but just can't bear to have an ending that doesn't have them together.

  5. I finished ULTRAVIOLET by RJ Anderson the other day and have been swooning all over the place over Alison and Sebastian. I hope they stay together forever, even though, without giving spoilers, it would be difficult. To say the least.

    And Katsa and Po of course. OF COURSE.

  6. Love this list! What a fun idea. I love Logan and Veronica, too! The show lost its way in season three, but was getting back on track by the end so it kills me that it wasn't renewed. I have this whole elaborate season four in my head where everything works out just the way I want. :)

  7. Just had to jump in and say how much I LOVE Amy & ROger's Epic Detour. It was one of my top books in 2010.

  8. Cole and Isabel from Wolves of Mercy Falls series need to get together and stay together for sure! Tris and Four need to stick it out in Divergent. Peeta and Katniss of Hunger Games fame, Meghan and Ash from Iron Fey, and Mia and Adam from If I Stay/Where She Went. I'm sure there are more too!

  9. Gah! I LOVE Veronica and Logan! My favorite couple on that show.

    I love your list!

Dear Books: Please Update Your Libraries

There is nothing worse than coming across a book you are really enjoying only to be pulled out of it because of some outdated and incorrect library reference. I know that authors and illustrators will not always get everything 100% accurate, but I when I read books that show a very dated stereotype, or something that is just so incorrect, I always wonder why. I feel like authors and illustrators should know better! And it's not just older books-it happens in new books too! I recently read A Big Surprise for Little Card by Charise Mericle Harper and illustrated by Anna Raff.  I absolutely loved this book! It's a creative look at libraries through the eyes of a library card. It's perfect for my outreach visits and storytimes about the library and promoting what value there is in a library card. Anna Raff gets major points for illustrating a very cool and hip librarian as well! But the librarian tells card to shush and is a bit annoyed when he shows up. And then l
