I had a bit more trouble with this top 5, than I have others, but I tried to reason my answers well enough!

Julian x Scarlett

With these two it wasn’t necessarily a hate to love romance, or really too much of a great romance at all but there was certainly a lot of distrust between the two at the beginning of the novel.

I found that these two were a lot of fun together and I can’t wait to see how their dynamic changes in book 2.

Ron x Hermione

Don’t glare at me like that (I can feel it, guys, there’s a whole bunch of you silently planning my demise right now). We all know that it took more than a few chapters for Ron and Hermione to actually become friends, and even longer for them to actually trust each other.

If we’re all honest here then we can also woman (or man) up and admit that these tw had a pretty rocky relationship for the first four books. Yeah, they’re tight by the end of the series but for the most part these two have a pretty unbalanced friendship.

Katy x Daemon

These two definitely had a hate to love relationship. Keep in mind that I’ve only read books 1 and 2 and so I don’t know how the series ends.

From what I’ve read these two have great banter and a lot of pent up emotions, most negative. They start out pretty much despising each other and now, they’re pretty much glued at the hip.



G x Jane

Okay, so these two are completely adorable and their (second) wedding was brilliant. I mean, all the guests had books in case they got bored!

Anywayyy, they started out in an arranged marriage and hated each other from the get go. They had terrible communication and by the time they actually talked to each other (communication is key guys) I was already in love with their love. Also, Jane has some fantastic one liners and  could kill someone with all the puns up her sleeves.

Adam x Ronan

Adam and Ronan didn’t exactly start out hating each other but they weren’t particularly close either. It was really fun to see their relationship develop throughout the series as they are both such fundamentally different characters.

If you know anything about the bookish side of Tumblr then I’m sure you also know about these two and their journey. And, for the most part Tumblr is right, these two dure do make a good couple.

      1. No, I’ve always thought she was better with Ron! I think people forget that she genuinely liked Ron, and that Ron is a jerk, but he was a teenage boy throughout the entire series! You can tell that Ron in The Deathly Hallows is different than who he was in the other six books! I’ve really never understood people saying that she “needs an equal,” as if Harry wasn’t a jerk (he was), and Draco is smart, so they should be together (which is never shown in the books and he’s racist lol).

        1. I loved your answer, I feel like so many people’s reasoning is just “they would be better together”, I appreciate that you actually gave a thought out answer. Also yes, I feel like so many people think that relationships have to be completely 50/50 balanced, which is completely unrealistic.
