What do you guys think? Who are your favorite slow building couples? Let me know!

PS Happy Valentine's Day! Hope you all have a day full of love and happiness!


  1. I loved Making Faces and Law of Moses and those couples. Amy Harmon is great. I have to get to Faking Normal. Great list!

  2. Making Faces is on my TBR. Ever since I finished The Bird and the Sword, I knew I'd have to pick up more of her books. Blue and Gansey is one of my favorite fictional couples. I love them so much. Happy Valentine's Day!

  3. I added some of these on my Top Ten which was for favorite romances! And I was so close to including Nova and Quinton but they didn't make the top ten. And Making Faces is definitely one of my favorites! Recently re-read it and fell in love all over again!

  4. Those Stiefvater's characters are some of my favorites!

  5. I love Peeta and Katniss (though they weren't on my list this week).

  6. I can't wait to read more Amy Harmon. I'm sold! I really enjoyed Faking Normal too. I hope you get to read it soon. Thanks for stopping by Grace!

  7. Yes. I've read these two on my list, but I know I've got to read more Amy Harmon. I'm close to finishing The Raven King now and I still love Blue and Gansey. Thanks for stopping by Alicia. I hope you had a happy Valentine's Day as well!

  8. Yeah I enjoyed Nova and Quinton, but I can definitely see them not being a top ten for romances. Shoot, just reading my review for Making Faces while I was prepping my blog post this week made me want to re-read it, and I JUST read it for the first time last month. Thanks for stopping by Elena!

  9. Yes I love Blue and Gansey. I have to say that I'm not loving The Raven King (which I'm currently reading) as much as I hoped. Thanks for stopping by Lauren!

  10. I totally understand. Thanks for stopping by and commenting Jo!
