Welcome back to Top 5 Wednesday.
If you are new to this group, then you can look on Goodreads for the general information but basically it is a challenge whereby we pick five books/book related answers depending on a topic for that week.
This week, we have our favourite angsty romances and because I had a hard time choosing some, I am including tv romances as well.
As always, these are in no particular order:
1# Clary and Jace from The Mortal Instruments/Shadowhunters
Clary might get on my nerves in some of the earlier books but I do quite like Clary and Jace as a couple. These two go on a hell of a journey and I’m glad they get things sorted out because they make a strong team and one that is respected.
2# Ron and Hermione from Harry Potter
Need I say anything?
3# Dr Temperance Brennan and Seeley Booth from Bones
I can’t express how much I love these two. They compliment each other brilliantly and always manage to work things out despite the major difficulties and angst that is thrown at them.
4# Dr Julia Ogden and Detective William Murdoch from Murdoch Mysteries
What was a really angsty romance to begin with – full of back and forth banter, a forbidden romance, the former nearly being hanged for murder – has become something that I constantly want to watch. They’re a modern couple for their time (late 1890s/early 1900s) and give other crime-solving couples a run for their money.
5# Sue Thomas and Jack Hudson from Sue Thomas FBEye
I don’t think their relationship can be truly classed as angsty, but it drove me nuts that these two could never really be together despite having gone undercover as a couple for a few cases because they’re romantic chemistry was amazing! And they were really supportive of each other during the show’s run of three seasons – not to mention Jack learnt ASL for Sue! If that isn’t serious proof that this relationship was worth it, I don’t know what is.
And That’s it.
What are your five angsty romances? Book, TV or otherwise?
Thanks for reading and have a good day.
