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

They are THE best couple. Not only are they sarcastic and sassy towards each other, they both love each other and will do anything in order to keep the other person alive. Plus, they care about each other, and when their romance was blooming, they had that normal teenage jealousy. Eventually they got over it, and now they are seriously in love! Heck, I mean Percy jumped into Tartarus for her. Nothing beats that.

Love this couple

This is literally the best. I love the books and I am glad that they're at the top. I think everyone would want their relationship like them. Percy (aka seaweed brain) is such a dreamboat!

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.

2 Clary Fray and Jace Wayland

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

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.

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

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.

4 Katniss Everdeen and Peeta Mellark

Best couple ever

This is what the perfect couple should look like.

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"

5 Bella Swan and Edward Cullen

Such a great couple

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.

6 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.

Yes! LOL!

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.

They are made for each other

I still think Harry and Hermione are better

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

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 Thorne and Cress

These are like so cute

10 Nora Grey and Patch Cipriano

Hell yah

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

The Contenders

11 Luce Price and Daniel Grigori

THEY ARE THE BEST COUPLE EVER! They have a never ending true love that the other couples lack. I LOVE THEM

12 Aimee and Sutter
13 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.

14 Will and Tessa

The vest

They're literally best couple I've ever read about in my whole life.


These guys are just great

15 Anne Shirley and Gilbert Blythe
16 Kai and Cinder

Most adorable pair ever

17 Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey

They are the best. I loved Anastasia's character a lot

18 Hazel and Augustus

Though they didn't have a happy ending, they were a beautiful couple. Long live hazel and Gus.

19 Annie Cresta and Finnick Odair

I just love them! They are sweet and heart breaking... I love how he never wants to let go of her hand! So sweet, they have to be top.


Le best of them all

20 Wendy and Finn
21 Magnus Bane and Alec Lightwood



YES YES YES YES YES! This book and T.V. couple is so cute. They will do anything for each other, even if it means losing parent trust for you.



22 Gwendolyn Shepherd and Gideon de Villiers
23 Tatiana Metanova and Alexander Barrington
24 Sunshine Runningwolf and Talon of the Morrigantes
25 America Singer and Maxon Schreave

They are so amazing, my favorite ship, besides maybe Adrienette

They faced the challenges thrown at them, to get their happily ever after

26 Ben (Zombie) and Marika (Ringer)
27 Harry Potter and Ginny Weasley

I think they should be higher then Bella and Edward. Even if you think they are bad, compare them to Twilight! I mean anything should be higher then Twilight

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.

28 Amanda Devereaux and Kyrian Hunter
29 Zuzana Novkova and Mikolas Vavra
30 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

31 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

32 Adrian Ivashkov and Sydney Sage

One of the best developed couples and most healthy relationship I have ever read.
Adrian and Sydney both grow as the series progress and they are literally soulmates.


33 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

34 Bella Greenwood and Prince Richard

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

35 Bella Swan and Jacob Black

Why are the so far down?

Are they really 7th?

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 Lara Jean Song Covey and Peter Kavinsky
38 Jane Eyre and Mr. Rochester

Underrated - blackflower

39 Artemis Fowl and Holly Short
40 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

41 Emma Carstairs and Julian Blackthorn

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

42 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.

43 Karou and Akiva
44 Nihal and Sennar
45 Catherine Earnshaw and Heathcliff
46 Melanie Hamilton and Ashley Wilkes

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

47 Anakin Skywalker and Padmé Amidala


48 Max and Fang
49 Laila and Tariq
50 Thalia and Luke
