Top 5 Wednesday: Favorite Side Relationships


Greetings Fellow Book Dragons!

Top 5 Wednesday is a weekly meme within the book community that was created by Lainey of GingerReadsLainey, but is now hosted by Sam of Thoughts on Tomes.  If you're interested in participating, find out more on the Goodreads group.

This week's topic is Side Ships!  Let's chat about our favorite relationships that don't involve the protagonist.  While I'm not the biggest "shipper" for any relationships (unless it involves Rhysand from ACOTAR), there have been a few that I have really enjoyed reading or watching since this topic lent itself highly towards including television shows!  

So in no particular order, here are my selections.


Miryam and Drakon from A Court of Thorns and Roses series

I won't spoil anything if you haven't read A Court of Wings and Ruin, but there is still a lot we don't know about these two, so I think that's why I find them so intriguing.  I want to know more and the promise was there given the events of A Court of Mist and Fury; however, this looks to be a case of we may never really know or we'll just have to wait even longer.


Sybil and Branson from Downton Abbey

I simply loved watching their relationship gradually grow towards a beautiful and touching love story that ended far too quickly and tragically.


Finnick and Annie from The Hunger Games

Another moving relationship to be admired that unfortunately ended tragically.  Hmmm...I'm sensing a theme.


Sean and Meghan from Felicity

I really enjoyed watching these two.  They were so completely opposite, yet they worked really well together.  But above all else, you got a true sense of how much they cared for each other and their relationship really brought those characters to life, which would not have happened had they not been together.


Sayid and Shannon from Lost

Again, opposites whose relationship was tragically cut short.

Well, that didn't end up being as hard as I initially thought!  But I guess now we all know how much of a thing I have for opposites and tragic love stories...cue Romeo and Juliet!  Who are some of your favorite side character pairings?  Let me know in the comments!

  1. I totally forgot about Finnick and Annie, but from the glimpses I read in Mockingjay, their love was so pure and beautiful! That part where they were reunited and the quote above really hit me the hardest.
