Top 5 Wednesday | Favourite Non-Canon Ships

This was so difficult because there is a reason that I love authors: they give me exactly what I want in my Ship Life.

But I did find 5, some I feel more strongly about than others.

WARNING: This will contain spoilers and I apologise if you are spoiled by anything I say, but really, you’ve brought doom upon yourselves…

5. Alina and the Darkling from the Grisha Trilogy by Leigh Bardugo

I haven’t finished this trilogy because I had issues with the second book, but I did find out what happened between these two and the disappointment was a bit strong. I just love me a bad boy!

4. Victor and Eli from Vicious by VE Schwab

Romance was not the point of this book but I totally got sexy vibes from these two. Can’t be this much hate and anger without the love.

3. Robin and Cormoran from the Cormoran Strike series by Robert Galbraith (JK Rowling)

It physically hurt to read Robin getting married to a human that is not Cormoran. I adore these two to bits and they need each other more than I need oxygen. If I donate my oxygen can Queen Rowling please make it happen?

2. Theodore and Violet from All the Bright Places by Jennifer Niven

Hmm not sure if it counts but they don’t end up together. THEY DON’T END UP WITH ANYONE!

I can’t. I just can’t. There aren’t words to describe the pain this book caused. Please go read the thing if you haven’t yet.

1. Sam and Celaena from the Throne of Glass series  (The Assassin’s Blade) by Sarah J Maas

These two are my precious smoosh face babies and it broke something in me to not see them together. If you want to be emotionally crippled then defs go read this book.

Don’t get me wrong, Rowan is a babe and a half, but with Sam being a part of Aelin’s/Celaena’s past I can’t fully enjoy him. I just can’t ship them as hard. Samlaena 5lyf!
