TGIF (12): Love Stories

TGIF is a weekly meme created and hosted by Ginger of GReads! that recaps the week's posts and has a different question each week.

This week on Denim-Jacket Librarian Dishes:


Love Stories: What are some of your favorite fictional love stories?

Sam and Grace from Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater

This will always be one of my favorite love stories just because of the lengths this couple goes to in order to be together. Plus, how can you not find Sam's reading of German poetry romantic and sigh-worthy?

Kyle and Lindy from Beastly by Alex Flinn

I am definitely a fan of fairytale re-tellings, and when that fairytale happens to be Beauty and the Beast, I'm usually all for it. This was definitely no different, and I'm happy to have read it.

Sayuri and Chairman Iwamura from Memoirs of a Geisha by Arthur Golden

While this isn't a traditional love story, it is still one of my favorite romantic stories. Sayuri taking all of the steps to get to the Chairman, Iwamura taking the steps to help her along her path as a geisha. An almost sad romance, but still a romance nonetheless.

Yelena and Valek from Poison Study by Maria V. Snyder

These two are just amazing together in so many ways. And considering how their relationship was started, I'd say that Yelena can really depend on Valek and vice versa.
