more couples to love

I wrapped up the countdown of my favorite couples in literature through Project Boy Meets Girl, but that doesn't mean it's over.

In the spirit of Project Boy Meets Girl, I asked some of my friends to name a few of their favorites. Most of them chose to pick new ones, which is great, because it really builds on our list.

Aja's picks:
1. Georgina Kincaid and Seth Mortensen in the Georgina Kincaid series by Richelle Mead
2. Sookie Stackhouse and Eric Northman in The Southern Vampire Mysteries series by Charlaine Harris
3. Karrin Murphy and Harry Dresden in the Dresden Files series by Jim Butcher
4. Julia MacGregor and Callum Murdock in the MacGregor Bride by Nora Roberts

Katie's picks:
1. Heathcliff and Catherine in Wuthering Heights
2. Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth Bennett in Pride and Prejudice
3. Jane Eyre and Mr. Rochester in Jane Eyre
4. Emma Morley and Dexter Mayhew in One Day
5. Romeo and Juliet in Romeo and Juliet

Sarah's picks:
1. Buttercup and Wesley in The Princess Bride by William Goldman
2. Allison Nelson and Noah Calhoun in The Notebook by Nicholas Sparks
3. Bridget Jones and Mark Darcy in the Bridget Jones series by Helen Fielding
4. Emma Woodhouse and Mr. Knightley in Emma by Jane Austen
5. Elizabeth Bennett and Mr. Darcy in Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen

Whitney's picks:
1. Betsy and Joe in Betsy series by Maud Hart Lovelace, but particularly Betsy's Wedding
2. Trixie and Jacob in God-Shaped Hole by Tiffanie deBartolo
3. Darcy, Rachel, Dex and Ethan in Something Borrowed and Something Blue by Emily Giffin (can't spoil anything by listing actual couples)
4. Michael and Mia in Princess Diaries series by Meg Cabot
5. Remy and Dexter in This Lullaby by Sarah Dessen.

Did any of your favorites make an appearance this time around?

Here are a few of my honorable mentions who didn't make my Top 10:
•  Emma Corrigan and Jack Harper in Can You Keep a Secret? by Sophie Kinsella
•  Lexi Smart and Jon in Remember Me? by Sophie Kinsella
•  Tory Bodeen and Cade Lavelle in Carolina Moon by Nora Roberts
•  Serena MacGregor and Justin Blade in the MacGregor series by Nora Roberts
•  Julie Summers and Paul Winthrop in Genuine Lies by Nora Roberts
•  Cilla McGowan and Ford Sawyer in Tribute by Nora Roberts
•  Marianne and Colonel Brandon in Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austen

Thanks to everyone for sharing their favorites. It helped remind me of some good reads or clued me in on books I should check out.

OK, that's it, folks. This time, I'm really done with the series. Hope you enjoyed it.
