Monday Discussion: Favorite Literary Couples

Can you believe it is almost Valentine's Day?  Well here on the Monday Discussion, we are going to get sappy for the next 2 weeks.  We will begin this week with favorite literary couples. Next week I will feature your favorite love stories, so keep those to yourself right now.

I'll go first.  As readers know, I am not a big Romance (the genre) fan, but that does not mean I don't like to see happy couples in my books every now and then.

I was looking back over the last 12 months of  my reading, and I have identified a few couples I grew to adore in some of my favorite books.  You can use the title links to see my reviews for the books.
These recent literary couples have remained with me long after finishing the novels in which they appeared.

What about you? Share recent or classic couples in literature with me in honor of the build up to Heart Day!

Jamie & Claire - Outlander Series. Don't we all want to meet a tall gorgeous red headed Scotsman!

This may not be very original, but I really have to say Romeo and Juliet. Not only are they the universal symbol of Romanticism, but it is one of the few Shakespeare play I really enjoy reading and seeing performed.

Will & Lyra from the His Dark Materials trilogy. Swoon!

Holly and Guido from Laurie Colwin's Happy All the Time.

Sue and Maud from Sarah Waters's Fingersmith, also a good suggestion for people who don't typically like romance but love historical fiction/twisting stories.
