Best, Most Romantic Book Couples Ever

The best book couples ever... Those loved up couples where your heart goes all gooey... Aww.

The Top Ten

1 Percy Jackson and Annabeth Chase

Percy and Annabeth are the best fiction couple. They been through so much together, they literally went to Hell/Tartarus and back for each other. When Percy lost all of his memories, his love for Annabeth was so strong that he still remembered her, when he felt like giving up, he didn't because he wanted to find and see Annabeth again. When Percy disappeared Annabeth didn't sleep until she found Percy, she did everything in her power to find him. They both have been through so much that nothing will ever break them apart. Percy even gave up immortality/being a God for Annabeth. Even though they are fictional characters, the couple has made all of us fell the love. Because of all this it is not enough to say that they are the best fictional couple, they are the best couple ever.

Besides the fact that they're demigods, they have probably the most realistic yet nearly impossible for their age love stories known to man. A story of love and hate. A painful intense worry for the other. Having a split second reaction to keeping them from any harm. But I really have no say in this poll since I have only read half of the other couples books.

OMGS THE BEST COUPLE EVER! They may be fictional, but that's not what matters here. It's the love between the two. At first, their relationship was absolutely hating each other, to being friends, and finally, they loved each other. Although they tried to deny it each time, they knew in their hearts that they were made for each other. It certainly proved that they loved each other when Tartarus came around, Percy willing to drop with her, and stay back when they had to leave it, and also the time the single thought of annabeth kept Percy living in Styx. They couldn't be better. And what's with Bella and Edward being at the top? Percy and Annabeth for the win!

Of course they are

2 Katniss Everdeen and Peeta Mellark

Katniss and Peeta definitely had a complex chemistry, and were drawn to eachother from the beginning- it was plainly supposed to be written as a love triangle. Of course by the time they were together, things were difficult for both of them, and I just want to say that if they both think they feel enough for eachother to remain together after such horrible things happened to them, then their love is strong, even if it goes through trials.

The so called "Star Crossed Lovers from District 12"

This is what the perfect couple should look like.

Best couple ever

3 Rose Hathaway and Dimitri Belikov

Rose and dimitri are simply wonderful.

They are soul mates!

It's been five years since I read the VA series and I'm still in love with how much I love their love.

I absolutely love these two. VA is so great and Rose continued to love him even after he *spoiler alert* became Strigoi. She wouldn't stop fighting for him and vice versa. They strengthen each other and I JUST LOVE THEM! Enough said!

4 Clary Fray and Jace Wayland

Jace and clary have a love so rare and so powerful. Their love withstood demon possession, evil Shadowhunters, and heavenly fire. They have loved each other through lies, betrayal, death, destruction and war. When Clary was allowed to wish for anything in the world, she wished for Jace to be alive again. Jace once said to Clary: I love you, and I will love you until I die, and if there's a life after that, I will love you then. Another time he said: You came into my life and suddenly I had one truth to hold onto: that I loved you and you loved me.

They have loved each other through lies, betrayal, burning cities, death and war. When Clary was allowed to wish for anything in the world, she wished for Jace to be alive again. Jace once said to Clary: I love you, and I will love you until I die, and if there's a life after that, I will love you then.

I haven't finished the whole series yet but they are a great couple

I just love them together when clary could ask anything she asks for jace to be alive they are such a cute couple

5 Beatrice 'Tris' Prior and Tobias 'Four' Eaton

Honestly, their relationship irks me in ways indescribable. He was just.. Not the best partner for her, their relationship wasn't as balanced as it should've been. He was someone else, and the books don't let you get to know him quite as well as I'd like (disclaimer: I didn't read Four), which makes it even harder to feel an emotional connection to these characters and their relationship. Now, I know this is an unpopular opinion, so please don't hate me. I just think maybe Tris should have been with someone else, or no one at all. Preferably the latter.

Allegiant broke my heart and now I just watch couple videos of these two and they are my favorite couple in literature because they just have good solid getting over fears appreciating each other no live triangles love and they are what I want to have someday

They are amazing and strong. It broke my heart when they first kissed and then he ignored her, it really did.

I only have 6 Words to say: “I Will never recover of Allegiant”

6 Bella Swan and Edward Cullen

I just puked a little in my mouth...

This one is honestly probably only on the top because it had so many people comment hate on it, and that brings me peace. You're welcome.

Are you serious? No.

Disgusting and slightly pedophilic

7 Hermione Granger and Ron Weasley

Hermione provides Ron the confidence and common sense he lacks. Ron provides Hermione with some humor and entertainment that Hermione needs to help her relieve some of her stress. Besides, Ron (and Harry, but he's a third wheel) saved her from a troll! Sure they hate each other sometimes, but love-hate relationships are definitely the cutest ones, and ones that show most character development.

I can't believe that Edward/Bella topped Ron/Hermione.

Come on people! Ron and Hermione are the best. I shipped them when I was 8 years old reading the 3rd book. They are legendary! And the proof they are meant for each other is in Cursed Child. I dare you to read it and tell me I'm wrong.

You know what they say ‘opposites attract! ’ Ron and Hermione are perfect for each other! Yes, they argue every fifteen minutes, but that’s like the teenage way of flirting! They always got jealous (Krum? Lavender? Remember? ) and the fact that they managed to stay friends through so many arguments shows how strong their love is! They also compliment each other. Ron helps Hermione relax a bit and have fun, and Hermione helps Ron be more confident and focused.

8 Scarlett O'Hara and Rhett Butler

I love Gone With The Wind, but seriously, where's Romeo and Juliet?

Never disappeare

Because dayum

9 Elizabeth Bennet and Darcy Fitzwilliam

Okay so this isn't the classic love at first sight type of bit. Jane Austen always seems to portray different types of love in her books that are still relatable today. I love Pride and Prejudice because it involves unrequited love, going from hate to love, and how people aren't always who you think to be. Also, Darcy and Elizabeth's story is quite amusing if you truly read it and understand it. Also, their story is the classic rom com! Love it!

Pride and Prejudice was the first to establish the hate-at-first-sight love story. And I just want to share the fact that Mr. Darcy is the archetype of the brooding alpha male we(I mean me) are so crazy about. Whatever stories we have right now that are close to Pride and Prejudice are basically offsprings of this beautiful and successful love story.

10 Nora Grey and Patch Cipriano

Who wouldn't want to have a fallen angel as your boyfriend?

20 Wendy and Finn
21 Gwendolyn Shepherd and Gideon de Villiers

29 Katniss Everdeen and Gale Hawthorne

Gotta be before katniss and peeta

Gale was better for Katniss

Katniss and Peeta were a better couple but this couple made mroe sense and felt more realistic! - HeavyDonkeyKong

30 Harry Potter and Ginny Weasley

Harry and Ginny are the epitome of what a healthy relationship should be. There is no angst, no drama, they have fun together. They balance each other so well, and they're so adorable together, they are the best. It's a shame they are so low on this list. They are such a good representation of what a real relationship should be like. They are great role models. Better than Edward/Bella, or Clary/Jace, which are such unhealthy relationships, and not really inspiring.

Sometimes I feel like I'm the only one who likes this ship. Harry and Ginny were very obviously made for each other - Ginny loved Harry before she even met him, they were both victims of Voldemort's tricks and possessions, and Harry saved Ginny many times from horrible situations. They were bound to get together! Just because JK Rowling writes her romance a little differently, doesn't mean it's bad. Besides, it's who they choose, and it doesn't matter what you think. They love each other, they're happy together, and that's all that matters.

31 Nico Di Angelo and Will Solace

As of TOA solangelo is cannon and getting more development, it should be higher up

Solangelo, although I ship it vehemently, didn't get a whole lot of development, which makes me a bit upset that it's on this list when other worthy couples aren't. Also vvv technically Solangelo isn't canon either, sorry for bursting your bubble :P

32 Bella Greenwood and Prince Richard

I read it ages ago... Wow, didn't expect them to be here.

33 Bella Swan and Jacob Black

Are they really 7th?

Why are the so far down?

34 Adrian Ivashkov and Sydney Sage


35 Piper McLean and Jason Grace

So cute picture perfect couple, they're ready to fight the world ( literally)

They are 100% made for each other!

A great couple

36 Romeo and Juliet

Lol, I can't believe this is WAY before 2 Twilight ships. I guess people thought that mythology(I think it's greek mythology) Didn't count

37 Jane Eyre and Mr. Rochester
38 Leo Valdez and Calypso

This ship was awesome until Calypso started calling Leo babe

Who doesn't love Ca-Leo? I mean, seriously. They're so so so so adorable. I feel like they just really balance each other out and care a lot for each other.

Caleo is adorable and cannon, it should he higher up

Yesss I love this so much

39 Artemis Fowl and Holly Short
40 Emma Carstairs and Julian Blackthorn

HOW ARE THESE TWO NOT ON HERE?! Well... the book did just come out less than a month ago...

41 Gregor and Luxa (Underland Chronicles)

This is quite an unpopular couple, as you can see, but it is only for the underrating of the books.

Luxa and Gregor had been through sooo much together it's ridiculous! The best thing about these two, is that their relationship was slowly developed and not even canon until the last book, only showing a few hints before their big moment. Without spoiling anything, they really care for each other, and I suggest this book series if you're a sucker for Action and Romance.

42 Karou and Akiva
43 Nihal and Sennar
44 Catherine Earnshaw and Heathcliff
45 Anakin Skywalker and Padmé Amidala


46 Max and Fang
47 Laila and Tariq
48 Thalia and Luke
49 Lara Jean Song Covey and Peter Kavinsky
50 Melanie Hamilton and Ashley Wilkes

Forget Scarlette & Rhette. Melanie & Ashley were the real romantic couple of 'Gone With The Wind. '
