Top Ten Tuesday: I Ship It

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. Each week she assigns a topic and I make a list that fits the topic. This week’s topic is favorite couples in books. A few days ago I mentioned that my cold black heart isn’t qualified to recommend romance novels. However, I love shipping. Shipping book characters is kind of a recent thing because I’m more of a TV ship kind of girl, but these are the top 5 ships I ran to Tumblr for after I finished reading their respective books.

Elias Veturius + Laia of Serra = Elaia

An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir

Art by Tiphsartist

These two aren’t officially an item (at least I don’t think. There’s a lot of teasing), but I love them with my whole heart. These are my babies and I will literally go down with this ship. They deserve the world. And each other.

Julian Blackthorn + Emma Carstairs = Blackstairs

The Dark Artifices series by Cassandra Clare

These two gave me friends-to-lovers, forbidden love, and more. I adore them and I miss them so freaking much. I want a novella from Cassandra with them as the main.

Kaz Brekker + Inej Ghafa = Kanej

Six of Crows duology by Leigh Bardugo

LISTEN. This ⇢ “I would have come for you. And if I couldn’t walk, I’d crawl to you, and no matter how broken we were, we’d fight our way out together-knives drawn, pistols blazing. Because that’s what we do. We never stop fighting.” STILL ONE OF MY FAVORITE QUOTES.

Patroclus + Achilles = Patrochilles

The Song of Achilles by Madeline Miller

“In the darkness, two shadows, reaching through the hopeless, heavy dusk. Their hands meet, and light spills in a flood like a hundred golden urns pouring out of the sun.”  CAN YOU HEAR ME CRYING? 😭😭😭

Kestrel + Arin = Kestrin

The Winner’s Trilogy by Marie Rutokski

These two delivered slow-burn romance. Your faves could never deliver the kind of angst I experienced. Those first two books were every. thing.

So there you have it. My top 5 favorite book couples. Do you have any favorites? Let me know in the comments!
