Connel and Marianne, from Normal People were so goddamn stupid, I love them both so much.

Daisy and Bill, from Daisy Jones and the Six had a not too healthy relationship, but there was something so very intoxicating about them. I kept feeling – I want this to work, no I don’t, yes I do – the entire book.

Arianna and Cvareh, from The Alchemists of Loom are another stupid couple I love.

A Quiet Kind of Thunder Sara Bernard an american marriage tayari jones

Steffi and Rhys, from A Quiet Kind of Thunder were so adorable I was squeaking while reading. Squeaking. Me, a grown-ass woman with a heart of ice.

Celestial and Roy, from An American Marriage, especially those letters in the beginning of the book had me FEELING THINGS.

  1. Thanks for the tag! I love your choices, especially with Normal People and Daisy Jones- such complicated relationships, but also they’re the best. 🙂

  2. Oh geez, I just felt SO BAD for Celestial and Roy! I wanted it to work for them, but just didn’t know if it would and was not shocked when it didn’t. Definitely feeling the feels. Daisy and Billy… not as much. I felt like what was so intoxicating about that book was less their sexual chemistry, and more the conflicting worldviews clashing against each other. But I know I was in the minority on that. THE ENDING THOUGH! *squee*

    • I didn’t know most of the time if I wanted it to work out or not between Celestial and Roy! It’s just, he was kind of an ass, and they were such different people… a lot of times I just wanted both of them to let it go but maybe stay friends? But it felt so heartbreaking for Roy to go through all of what he did PLUS doing it without one of the people he loved the most.

        • Yes, that too! Like, did she try to wait on him? It felt so sudden. But then again, we didn’t live her life, so we don’t really know how it feels. It’s difficult to put yourself in her position, or pass a judgment on her.

          • I don’t remember how many years, but yes, felt pretty sudden. I normally get rid of books I don’t think I’ll re-read, but I want to revisit this one in the future and then maybe, knowing about this, I’ll be able to empathize more and understand her a little more at some point? But it’s strange the change in plot speed between this first part of the book and the rest of it.

    • I love them so much! I am so curious to see what you think of the next books, I don’t know a lot of people who read this series, so I’d love to know if you decide to read on!! 😀
