    Booking Through Thursday — Coupling

    Got this idea from Literary Feline during her recent contest: “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.

    I actually thought I would have more, but here are some literary couples I like:

    • Elizabeth Bennet & Mr. Darcy from Pride and Prejudice
    • Jane Eyre & Mr. Rochester from Jane Eyre
    • Lyra & Will from His Dark Materials
    • Lucy Honeychurch & George Emerson from A Room With A View
    • Griffin & Sabine from the Griffin & Sabine series
    • Cal & Abra from East of Eden (not really a couple in the book but still)
    • Bridget Jones & Mark Darcy from Bridget Jones’ Diary
    • Anne Eliot & Capt. Wentworth from Persuasion
    • Tereza & Tomas (&Sabina) from The Unbearable Lightness of Being
    • …and Sherlock Holmes & Dr. John Watson (oh come on, if not, they should be!)
