Super Six Sunday is a weekly meme hosted by the gals at Bewitched Bookworms. This week’s theme: Super 6 Books I Wish I Lived In/I’m Glad I Don’t Live In.
1. Eugenides and Attolia
The Thief series by Megan Whalen Turner
Alright-y then. When it comes to epic romances, the first couple that comes to mind are these two from The Thief series by Megan Whalen Turner. Their story is as epic as they come. Adventures, check. Court intrigue, check. Questionable motivations, check. True feelings, check. Love story of a lifetime, check.
2. Eleanor and Park
Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell
These two just took my heart on a roller-coaster ride. I felt everything there was to feel reading their story unfold. I remember the stirrings of first love, the challenge of being in a society that can’t quite accept who you are, the definitive moment that changes your life, the certainty of loving someone.
3. Katniss and Peeta
The Hunger Games Trilogy by Suzanne Collins
If theirs isn’t an epic love story, I don’t know what else would be. They were in a game to death where only one would have survived, which would have meant having to kill the other. Kill, as in make them dead. Add to that being in another hunger games, war and revolution, and torture-induced amnesia.
4. Dorian and Ashaya
Hostage to Pleasure by Nalini Singh
Oh, these two are definitely in this list. Talk about a love story about two people on opposite sides of a divide. Make that a gaping, seemingly mile-wide (or more) abyss of a gap. Between two completely different people, one from the Psy race who all have stamped out any emotion since adopting Silence and the other one a soldier from a Changeling pack, who are basically driven and motivated by emotions. They say opposites attract? These two have never been more opposite (or are they) or never been attracted (to each other, of course) until they meet.
5. Park and Lucy
Before Now by Cheryl McIntyre
Theirs is a story epic and true to form to the most basic level. Their meeting each other was basically a game-changer, a life-changing experience. The ups and downs, the reluctant attraction turned inevitable feelings so deep they take root in your very soul, the questions and fear at times warring with the certainty of emotions.
6. Edward and Bella
Twilight series by Stephanie Meyer
I don’t care what other people may say about the Twilight series before or after the books were made into movies. I love this series and I truly enjoyed Stephanie Meyer’s writing. And their love story, spanning four books, is still one that remains close to my heart. I hope Stephanie will finish writing Midnight Sun *crosses fingers*.
