Teen Board Monthly Question

What Book Characters Do You Think Would Make a Great Couple?

It's February, so Teenreads has Valentine's Day on the mind! On that note, we asked our Teen Board, "What book characters do you think would make a great couple?" whether from the same book or across novels. See what they came up with, here!


Jace from The Mortal Instruments series and Anna from ANNA AND THE FRENCH KISS would make such a cute couple! I feel like Anna is headstrong and will keep Jace in line, while Jace's tender affection (when you get to know him) will soothe any snark of Anna's. They're both sarcastic and highly opinionated, so they would never have a dull conversation. Anna wouldn't be afraid of the Shadowhunter world; if anything, she'd be fascinated by it and look at it with a movie critic's eye. Jace would complain about having to go watch movies with Anna, but would deep down love it. They would be the type of couple to go on spontaneous adventures around New York and Paris. I can totally imagine Anna telling Jace that they're going on a scavenger hunt in Central Park that somehow lands them near ducks and Jace would narrow his eyes at Anna while she cackles in the background over his duck fear. They would be the type of couple to have a never ending prank war that results in a ton of laughter and fluff.  Overall, I think the two of them would compliment each other extremely well and would make readers swoon over their romance. I know I would! --- Katherina T.

I would say Luna and Neville from Harry Potter. Those two would have been so cute together. Luna's ability to not care what anyone thinks would have complemented Neville's insecurities and they would have understood each other. --- Sydney  L.

I think the two characters that would make a great literary couple are Cath from FANGIRL by Rainbow Rowell and Liam from The Darkest Minds Trilogy by Alexandra Bracken because they both have their nerdy sides, Liam with his music and Cath with her fanfiction! --- Kate F.

My two characters would have to be Tally Youngblood from the novel UGLIES and Peeta Mellark from THE HUNGER GAMES. They both are strong main characters in their independent novels and I think that if they were ever to meet, they would get along very well. --- Rachel D.

I think Lucy Pevensie from The Chronicles of Narnia series and Peter Pan would make a great couple, as they are both outgoing, brave, adventurous and the leaders of their respective lands. Because their personalities are so similar, I think they would complement and support each other. They would go on crazy adventures, discover new places and be a daring duo unlike any other. --- Sara J.

Luna Lovegood. Neville Longbottom. The perfect, perfect, absolutely perfect match and silly J. K. Rowling denies it. (Because, as the author, it's not like her decisions about characters matter or anything....) These two were my favorite supporting characters of the entire Harry Potter series, and there were some great supporting characters, people. They're hilarious. Awkward. Impossibly sweet. They've both been through significant losses and yet manage to go on and do good in the world despite their personal, hidden pain. Luna is totally spaced-out and unique in her style, Neville has a pet toad named Trevor, and they're both so nobly wonderful. And Luna has a mural on her ceiling! That Neville is in! Is this not a destiny written in the stars (you know, the ones that surround the mural)? --- Mary M.

Two characters that I think would make a great couple are Mary and Dickon from THE SECRET GARDEN; when they are older, of course. Dickon helps Mary be more of a kind person, and I think they can continue to help each other and make the sweetest pair. --- Maggie L.

I think Miss Maudie Atkinson and Atticus Finch from TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD would have made a great couple. Miss Maudie's love for Scout and Jem would make her a great step-mother for them. They also hold very similar values and make great role models. Plus, you can tell they really care about each other. --- Cheyenne C.

Peter Pan and Alice from ALICE'S ADVENTURES IN WONDERLAND by Lewis Carroll are the perfect match for each other because they are both from similar lands --- places bursting with imagination and the sense that anything can happen. Alice deals with the same issues of adulthood as Peter does. I can just picture them flying back and forth between their two worlds, hand in hand. --- Cassandra H.

I think Nehemia from THRONE OF GLASS by Sarah J Maas and Prince Kai from CINDER by Marissa Meyer would make a good couple because they are both royalty. They also want what is best for their people. They're very level-headed and Nehemia is wise, so she'd be able to help Prince Kai with all of his doubts. --- Christa O.

Not so much of a traditional "couple," but Sydney (Bloodlines series by Richelle Mead) would be great friends with Eevee (NOW THAT YOU’RE HERE by Amy Nicholas). They're both insanely smart and logical thinkers, even when it comes to aspects of the supernatural world. I can easily imagine them staying up half the night bouncing ideas off each other about how to solve major global issues. On top of that, they both got a thing for bad boys. They would be inseparable. --- Lexibex V.
