And... welcome back to the Literary Love extravaganza finale! Whew! What a couple of romantical weeks we've had here at See Michelle Read - so many of you truly excellent folks nominated and voted for a positively awe-inspiring array of unforgettable bookish duos. Seriously, I am astounded. Although many of your votes were expected, there were quite a number of highly unexpected, yet totally perfect, nominations. Like Miss Scarlet O'Hara & Rhett Butler! And (my personal favorite) Junie B. & Hugh! I seriously want to give an award for the person that chose those two. And lots of love also goes to our marvy guest bloggers: Angie, Aimee, Brenda, and Rhiannon. I told you they would be terrific, didn't I?
So now onto the good stuff. You told me who you loved best* and believe you me, I listened. The Literary Love Winners from each of the following categories are...
Classic fiction: Elizabeth Bennett & Mr. Darcy from Pride & Prejudice
General fiction: Jamie & Claire from Outlander
Urban Fantasy: Kate & Curran from the Kate Daniels series
Young Adult: Gen & Attolia from the Thief seriesAnd your favorite couple of ALL TIME? The honors goes to Elizabeth Bennett & Mr. Darcy from Pride & Prejudice
Thank you, thank you (thank you!) to everyone who stopped by to make Literary Love just so astonishingly frickin' awesome - I know I had a blast and I hope you were able to sigh over some old favorites and discover some possible new ones too. I wish you all a supremely Happy Valentines Day full of chocolate, the best books, and excellent friends.
Happy Valentines Day!
