This weekend I got nominated by Naty at Naty’s Bookshelf to do the Soul Ripping Romance tag. Naty’s one of those bloggers with whom you can really have a conversation about something one of us posted, which is amazing! Do check out her blog!
This tag was created by Nel from Reactionary Tales.
The Guide of the Soul Ripping Romance Tag:
Share at least 5 (but more are welcome) romances that tugged your heart strings. They can be from books, movies, TV shows, manga; anything you can think of! They can be examples of sad tears, angry tears, happy tears or a combination of all three.
Nominate 5 (or more) people to share their emotional traumas.
[Note: Try not to spoil the story for your readers in case they would like to check out these romances on their own.]
Let’s do this!
First of, my boyfriend and I just finished the whole Sons of Anarchy-series. Jax and Tara are just that couple in my eyes. The way they have to fight for each other, their life together and everything they want without messing everything up for the Sons of Anarchy, is amazing to see. The sacrifices, the love, the hope, the passion. It just made watching this series amazing from the first episode to the last.
[Oh, and it has to be said, added, yelled: Jax is just yum to look at.]
I cannot do this tag without mentioning The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer. I just can’t. When reading those books, you can’t help but keep rooting for Cinder & Kai and Thorne & Cress. I completely fell in love with those books and characters. Do check out my review if you want to know more!
When you’re more a fan of settings in the wild, adventures and magic, you should check out Roar by Cora Carmack. I read this book last week and thoroughly enjoyed it. Again, here’s my review. The way the relationship between Roar and a certain storm hunter is building up, you know magical things are waiting for the sequel! I’m sure I’ll be reading this book again. And once more when the sequel is going to be published, haha.
Since I’m currently reading After you by Jojo Moyes, I feel it’s only right to mention Me before you. I remember being extremely invested in the story of Lou and Will, living through all their emotions with them as if they were my own. It was a romance that started at a low, and eventually reached a high that altered lives. There were definitely all kinds of tears involved while reading this. [I hope I’m not spoiling anything with this but it’s just the truth.. Oh well, it’s an ‘older’ book, so I’m going with the hope you already read it, haha.]
Last, but not least… Seriously, all books by Cassandra Clare. And don’t you make me choose. Clary and Jace might be the lesser couple, in my opinion. But… Simon and Isabelle? Magnus and Alec? Oh my. Yes, please! And then we have the Will – Tessa – Jem triangle – I seriously still can’t decide who I was rooting for most. Julian, Emma and Mark. Same problem!
Which is exactly why I love these books so much. I need to reread them. ASAP.
Who’s with me?
