It's time for Top Ten Tuesday and this week is FREEBIE week, which means you can choose to talk about whatever you want. I really want to discuss the non-book romances I love, the ones I really wish I could read about in book form. I couldn't come up with ten, so I have stuck to five.
Jim & Pam: The Office
These two are quite honestly my ultimate OTP, other than Hermione and Ron. Plus they are real life relationship goals. Their romance on The Office was my favourite thing about the show, they were just too fucking adorable. I'd want their story right from the very beginning, the first time that they meet and all the way up to marriage and babies! We could have the dual POV, see them fall slowly in love with each other. Then we have Pam dealing with her feelings for Jim, whilst being engaged to Roy. Not to mention that Casino Night kiss. And then we would have all the absolutely hilarious characters in The Office. I mean, come on, Dwight in book form! I NEED THIS!
John Krasinski & Emily Blunt
Yup, I would love this real life couple to have a romance novel wrote about them. It would be bloody adorable as hell, those two are too cute together! And, okay, I will admit that my urge for this book to exist might be based off the fact that I am in love with John Krasinski. Sorry, not sorry. I can't help it, the guy plays my dream TV husband and is also a total sweetheart in real life. Plus these two are so sweet together, you could totally write a cutesy romance based around them. You've got the super cute meeting, where he feels like he has no chance in hell and is super nervous. Then a hilarious first date at a shooting range. I want this book, it would be cute as hell.
Satine & Christian: Moulin Rouge
You guys probably don't know this about me, although I have mentioned it a few times, but I am a huge Baz Luhrman fan. I love his films, especially Moulin Rouge and Romeo + Juliet, they are especially visually stunning. Moulin Rouge felt so unique the first time I watched it, it offered something really special. I would love to have a book version of this, although it would lose some great aspects of the film like the musical numbers. I just would love to see that story play out in a book. The penniless writer who ends up falling in love with a prostitute, when he is mistaken for the rich and powerful Duke, who could decide her whole future. They then get to have a forbidden, secret romance.... SUCH POTENTIAL! Now if only they could change that ending.
Aragorn & Arwen: LotR
I know this is kind of cheating as they are a couple from the book, but we really only got the little story about them in the appendix of Lord of the Rings. I am talking about a full length novel that just focuses on these two and their romance. I LOVE THEM!!! The immortal elf who falls in love with the human... I want. I want. I WANT!
Anastasia & Dimitri
Anastasia is one of my all time favourite animated movies, and just a favourite movie of mine in general. I loved this film and I loved these two. And I was all for the story of Anastasia, the Grand Duchess, living because that is just so much nicer and happier than the truth. These characters would be fantastic and hilarious in book form. They have back and forth barbs that are just perfection and would have me in stitches whilst reading. Plus they go from hating each other to falling in love with each other. Then we get the beautiful setting of Russia, with the snow and the beautiful building, stunning clothes and adorable dog sidekick, Pooka. I would just love for this to be a book!
Can you think of any non-book romances that you would love to be able to read as a book?
