I don't always write romances, but I always have a romantic element in my books. Probably why it's never appealed to me to write Middle Grade.
Couples I hate:
Andrew "Ender" Wiggins and Novinha
This is the one I hate the most. I absolutely loath this toxic relationship. Ender deserved so much better (from Speaker for the Dead, Xenocide, and Children of the Mind)Catherine and Heathcliff from Wuthering Heights
Perrin and Faile in The Wheel of Time series.
What can I say? This woman was so not good enough for him. I will concede that in the last book, she finally started improving but, seriously, I would not have grieved if she'd died (as so many beloved characters did).Couples I like:
Anne and Gilbert in Anne of Green Gables
Lucy and Nicholas in Moonrakers Bride
These are a few of mine. What are yours?
