Favorite OTPs

1. Darrow and Mustang – Red Rising Trilogy by Pierce Brown

These two lovers are my fave. I loved the slow burn romance as they got to know one another, and how they managed to move apart and yet still come back together. They had so many differences but you just can’t stop destiny!

2. Feyre and Rhysand – Court of Thorns and Roses Series by Sarah J. Maas

I think everyone is basically in love with this power couple. I don’t know anyone could not like them. Rhys has empowered Feyre and helped turn her into a strong and independent woman. Basically, I’m just in love with Rhysand. Fine, I admit it…

3. Elizabeth and Darcy – Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen

Come on, y’all – this is the original OTP!

4. Simon and Baz – Carry On by Rainbow Rowell

These two just crack me up. I love their bickering and snarky comments towards each other. The sass is strong in this relationship!

5. Swan and Hook – Once Upon a Time tv show

I know these two aren’t from any novel but I just couldn’t not put them on this list. I haven’t watched the show since the Frozen season but I plan on catching up at some point, really just to watch more of these two.

6. Lysandra and Aedion – Throne of Glass Series by Sarah J. Maas

I don’t think this couple gets enough love from the Throne of Glass fandom. They tend to get pushed to the wayside in favor of Aelin/Rowan and other couples. But I have a real soft spot for Aedion and I just love his interactions with Lysandra.

7. Juliette and Warner – Shatter Me Trilogy by Tahereh Mafi

I’m like the biggest fan of the hate-to-love trope and these two are just the perfect example of it. I miss them so much… I’m sensing a reread in my future!

8. Kell and Lila – Shades of Magic Trilogy by V.E. Schwab

Oh, these two. You could just feel the sexual tension from day 1, even though they tried to act all nonchalant the whole time. Lila’s all like, I’m just going to be free and have fun. Kell is all, I’m so serious and focused… Ha! Y’all never fooled me!

9. Jamie and Claire – Outlander Series by Diana Gabaldon

Seriously, these two are goals AF.

10. Aelin and Rowan – Throne of Glass Series by Sarah J. Maas

I think at this point we can all just agree that Maas can write the shit out of some epic couples. She is queen at giving us some amazing relationships to root for, and Aelin and Rowan are a prime example of that.

  1. I agree with most of your choices but I have to say I loved Aedion and Lysandra !!!! I love Aedion so much on his own and his “relationship” with Lysandra gives his character a whole new dimension!!! ❤ ❤

  3. Rhys and Feyre, Elizabeth and Darcy, Juliette and Warner, and Jamie and Claire are some of my top favorite OTPs as well 😍. Especially Jamie and Claire. I haven’t read the books yet because I haven’t been able to buy them but I did watch the show a few months ago and so they’re probably my top favorite right now. Several of the other’s are for books I haven’t read yet but definitely need to get around to soon. Great list!! 😊

  4. Oh my word – if you haven’t watched Once Upon A Time since the Frozen arc, you are in for some MAJOR Captain Swan scenes!!!! 🙂 Enjoy 🙂 I just started re-watching the show on Netflix Instant View. Some of the episodes are just so good!

      1. Yeah, it definitely gets better after the Frozen arc. I’m also really enjoying this season – the show seems to have gone back to its roots. Sometimes the show goes a bit overboard in bringing in the different characters & plotlines.
