I don’t know about you but there are a few relationships in books that never worked out the way I wanted them to. Maybe I just imagined the connections I saw or maybe they really existed but the author never followed them through – who knows?
Anyways here’s my top four. I’m gonna focus on super popular books so as to hopefully avoid ruining it for the masses. But there are spoilers (or anti-spoilers as the case may be!) I’ve highlighted the books I’m discussing in bold so you can skip some if you don’t wanna spoil anything!
From the Harry Potter series:
Neville Longbottom and Luna Lovegood – did anyone else get this vibe?! I felt these two were so well matched with Neville’s shy but quirky personality and Luna being….well…loony. I thought they had it made – But alas good ol’ JK paired them off with rando’s in her ten year later sum up at the end of Deathly Hallows. Oh well, perhaps she’ll write about Harry P again one day and they’ll get it on after failed marriages – a girl can dream!
From the Hunger Games (Warning – controversial opinion imminent)
Katniss and Gale – I know I know! Blasphemy! But I really thought he was the one for her. I know she spent the Hunger Games with Peeta but I liked the set up of her pretending to be in love with Peeta whilst Gale sat at home watching them on the tv and going off for a man cry! By the end I accepted her choice because of…ahem…circumstances that may have put her off Gale but up til then I was routing for Gatniss!
From Twilight (Don’t worry it’s not what you think!)
Jacob and Renesme – it was soooo set up for this like sequel-worthy set up (*cough cough* Stephanie Meyer) but if she assuming there won’t be a sequel I would have liked a little (maybe even cheesy) sum-up end chapter of her getting older and them getting married – ’cause, let’s face it, Jacob deserved a happy ending after all the “Oh no, Edward left me I’m gonna make you teach myself how to ride a motorbike so I can drive one into a tree 😭” he put up with!
From A Game of Thrones:
Jon Snow and Danaerys – although these characters never ever met – like ever. I wanted it for these two! They could rule the world together. They’re both so beautiful – think of the children! But due to…ahem….circumstances… it looks like this one isn’t on the cards……….or is it 😏…..?
