Loverly Love Books

Inspired by Sarah's Valentine's Day post, a list of my Top 10 Favorite* romantic reads/couples:

Valancy & Barney -- The Blue Castle, by L.M. Montgomery
Peter & Harriet -- Gaudy Night, by Dorothy Sayers
Deb & Mark -- Celia's House, by D.E. Stevenson
Vicky & Adam -- A Ring of Endless Light, by Madeleine L'Engle
Cassie & Seb -- The Year of Secret Assignments, by Jaclyn Moriarty
Taylor & Jonah -- Jellicoe Road, by Melina Marchetta
Viola & Orseno -- Twelfth Night, William Shakespeare
Jane & Rochester -- Jane Eyre, by Charlotte Bronte
Bella & John -- Our Mutual Friend, by Charles Dickens (edited 11/15/10)
Elizabeth & Darcy -- Pride and Prejudice, by Jane Austen

(Subject to change, of course... and really, when you come to think of it, most of these books are more about life that includes romance, than romantic novels. Well done, Noel.)

I do love Elizabeth and Darcy, but even more so, I adore Colonel Brandon and Marianne Dashwood of Sense & Sensibility.

Considering I read the whole thing (Anne of the Island) yesterday, Anne and Gilbert are my favorite right now. sigh :)
