Top 10 Old School Ships

Well, you can tell I had a really slow June. I really only read 3 new books this month so I didn't have much to talk about. It was so hard to pick a top 10. Obviously, I'm not in the same mindset as I was back then so it was pretty hard finding book relationships that I wasn't biased with because of time. I think I have a good arrangement here though. Also, I have to point out that some of these I no longer ship, these were from when I was like eleven to fourteen.

10. Harry and Ginny

They were one of my first ships. When I was really Harry Potter I was never really interested in the romantic relationships of the characters. I mean, I was eleven when I read Harry Potter so romance was sort of the furthest thing from my mind. At the time I honestly didn't ship any of the characters. I only started shipping Harry and Ginny during the Half-Blood Prince because of Harry's blossoming feelings for Ginny. This one is very close to me.

9. Lolita and Humbert

I was actually debating whether or not I even wanted to include this on my list, but I felt it was kind of important that I do so. I was fourteen when I read Lolita, so I was so incredibly impressionable. Now, at nineteen I realize just how fucked up their relationship was. I actually really grosses me out thinking about how I did think their relationship was okay, back in the say.

8. Ella and Micha

The Secret of Ella and Micha still maintains its place as one of my favorite books of all time. I just love the dynamic between these two characters and I will always have this giddy feeling whenever I think back to when I first read their story.

7. Jude and Lucy

This was one fo the first legit new adult romances I was exposed to. I made all my friends read it, I legit loved this trilogy so much at the time and I loved Jude and Lucy so much. They aren't as much of a favorite now as they used to be, but I do still have warm feelings about them.

6. Daemon and Katy

I get such strong emotions when I think of these two. I first read Obsidian about 6-7 years ago. I had discovered it from a blog post where the blogger posted a few quotes from the book and I instantly fell in love with these two. They have definitely stood the test of time for me.

5. Zoey and Stark

Way back when I used to be obsessed with the House of Night Series. Don't hold it against me, I was 12 and didn't know any better. These two were my goals until I got older and realized how much I hated their relationship. The rest of the couples on this list I still love, but these two were knocked off their high horse.

4. Isabel and Cole

I'm still obsessed with these two. When I first read the original Shiver Trilogy I didn't even really care about Sam and Grace, I just wanted more moments with Isabel and Cole. I honestly hated how things ended up between them so much, but then Maggie Stiefvater blessed us all with Sinner and I haven't been the same since.

3. Rose and Dimitri

You guys know how much I love these two. And if you don't then Hi welcome to my blog, you must be new here. The author doesn't often do this, but whenever she releases a little short or something new I am on it. If she ever decided to rewrite the series from Dimitri's point of view I would read every word because I just want more of these two. They really shaped my little preteen mind.

2. Clary and Jace

The best parts of Queen of Air and Darkness was the moments when these two showed up. I just didn't appreciate their relationship enough when I was younger. I know some of you are gonna be like "What about Will and Tessa?" and I will respond with, I love them just as much, but there is a bit more nostalgia with Jace and Clary and I just didn't feel right about taking up another spot on this list for Will and Tessa. Know that I still absolutely adore those two.

1. Damon and Elena

Who else? I used to post all sorts of Damon and Elena stuff all over my social media. And no it wasn't just from the show, I loved them so much that I actually read the books. I read all of the books that were actually written by L. J. Smith. I was Delena's biggest supported and there is nothing more nostalgic for me than these two.
