As we say goodbye to Paul and Veblen in Elizabeth McKenzie’s “The Portable Veblen,” we have decided to discuss our favorite literary couples in this week’s Wine, Women & Words. Whether it’s star-crossed lovers or couples fueled by sarcasm, we’ve all come across a couple (or 10) in books that we can’t help but fall in love with and cheer for throughout the story.

Here are our lists, but we always love to hear from you and learn about other couples that we’ve either forgotten about or haven’t come across yet. Our “To Be Read” lists are always growing and we love adding new titles to them!

You can comment here or reach out to us on Twitter using our handles (@MJLeivas/@Strahbary) or the hashtag #winewomenwords. Also, if you’re a lover of women in historical fiction, take a moment to check out Diana’s blog, Creating HerStory.

Michele’s List:

  1. Jenny and Ian, “Outlander” by Diana Gabaldon. Note: In the podcast, I mistakenly said his name is Neil. After double-checking for this post, I realized my mistake.
  2. Tris and Four, the “Divergent” series by Veronica Roth.
  3. Dreadnought Stanton and Emily Edwards, “Native Star” by M.K. Hobson.
  4. Darcy and Ethan, “Something Blue” by Emily Giffin.
  5. Henry DeTamble and Clare Abshire, “The Time Traveler’s Wife” by Audrey Niffenegger.
  6. Peter Lake and Beverly Penn, “Winter’s Tale” by Mark Helprin.

 Diana’s List:

  1. Claire and Jaime, “Outlander” by Diana Gabaldon.
  2. Marlena and Jacob, “Water for Elephants” by Sara Gruen.
  3. Alexia and Lord McConnell, the “Parasol Protectorate” series by Gail Carriger.
  4. Mercy and Adam, the “Mercy Thompson” series by Patricia Briggs.
  5. Charles and Anna, the “Alpha and Omega” series by Patricia Briggs.
  6. Simon and Rachel, “The Dressmaker’s Daughter” by Nancy Carson.
  7. Christian and Edmund, “The Lemoncholy Life of Annie Aster” by Scott Wilbanks.

Also, we have moved on to our new Book of the Month! July’s selection is “All the Light We Cannot See” by Anthony Doerr. This book is broken down into parts and since the chapters aren’t numbered, we’ll be reading Parts Zero, One and Two.

 

See you next week!
