My Take on Soul-Ripping Romances:
Neal and Georgie from Landline
Let me say this out loud – I LOVE Neal in Landline. He’s quiet, reticent yet once he speaks, whatever word comes from him just rocks my soul to the core. I don’t know exactly what it is, I just can’t put my finger on it, but something about Neal enthralled me. What broke my heart while reading Landline was Georgie’s angst and desperate want to get a hold of Neal. Her desperate craving for his voice and reassurance that they’ll be OK tugged at my heartstrings and I couldn’t help but root for Georgie. I love them.
Marie-Laure and Werner from All the Light We Cannot See
I know I keep bringing up this book over and over again, and Marie-Laure and Werner might not fall into the category of ‘romance,’ yet I swore I felt something beautiful and special sprang between them and I simply adored it. This is the reason why THE FOUNTAIN OF THE EARTH thing shattered my heart to bits and rendered me momentarily dysfunctional. I cannot gush enough about how shocked and broken I was. Oh, man. Anthony Doerr… 😦
Ben and Felicity from Felicity (TV show)
I love this couple. This might date me (who cares, anyway?), but when I first watched this show long time a go, I fell in love with the budding romance between them and literally gritted my teeth with frustration every time a third character gets in the way and splits them apart.
I haven’t watched the final episode yet, but I bought the complete DVD box series last summer so I could always indulge myself whenever I’m in the mood for a healthy dose of heart-tingling romance 🙂
Cinder and Kai from the Lunar Chronicle Series
I know all too well (yes, ‘WELL,’ thank you) I’m a bit too old for having my heart flutter over a YA series, but this couple had me in their clutches and filled me with happiness when they finally get reunited in Cress. Their mutual attraction is nothing but the obvious right from the beginning, so it was almost agonizing that I had to read how emotionally conflicted they are in Cinder and Scarlet. Kai is still a teenager but his demeanor and maturity embody what I look for in a man and I absolutely adore Cinder for being mentally strong and a kick-butt heroine, not being reduced down to be a saccharine cutey-girly type I personally don’t like.
Elinor Dashwood and Edward Ferrars from Sense and Sensibility (Film)
I haven’t read the book yet I’ve watched this adaptation so many times, and the last scene (shown in the Gif) never fails to get me all welled up. Emma Thompson’s performance is simply stunning; she beautifully expresses the moment when Elinor’s bottled up feelings and emotions toward Edward finally gush out. It’s simply breathtaking and rewarding. I love this film. I cannot get enough of it.
I’m sorry if you’ve already done this tag. If you haven’t been tagged, feel free to participate and keep this chain going. Let’s be real; we could always use a little romance in our lives 🙂
Thank you so much for reading and your support! It’s been fun!
I’ll talk to you again soon 😀
