Top Ten Tuesday- Freebie

This week's Top Ten Tuesday theme is a freebie so I'm going with my Top Ten Literary Couples! :)
When I'm reading a book or watching a movie a lot of what I look for in a couple is respect and a great sense of humor. :) I think that is reflected in this list. :)
Obviously I couldn't just stop at ten! So here you go in on particular order!
  1. Elizabeth Bennet and Mr. Darcy from Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice
  2. Jane Bennet and Mr. Bingley from Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice

And for the fun of it.... movie and TV show favorites as well!

  1. Love all of the couples you mentioned in the literary portion of your list! Great topic of choice for this week's TTT :)

    My TTT

  2. Great couples of course but I was most pleased to see Martha and Mickey. I was so happy when that happened as I always liked both characters and thought they deserved better. Great list!

    1. They did deserve better! It totally surprised me when they got together but I loved it!

  3. So glad to see there are great unions still being made...at least in literature. : )

  4. Cute topic!! Who doesn't like romance and literary couples?

    Here's the link to my Top Ten Tuesday post for this week: http://captivatedreader.blogspot.com/2015/05/top-ten-tuesday-sexy-male-characters-in.html

  5. Loved your choice for Beatrice and Benedict, they made me laugh a great deal! My favourite from Pride and Prejudice is Mr & Mrs Bennet actually, for sheer comedy value again. I would have to add Tonks and Lupin too :)

    1. I thought about including Mr. and Mrs. Bennet just for laughs!
      Tonks and Lupin are sweet too. :)

  6. What a great topic! So many excellent couples. I'd have to agree that #1 is the best. xxx

    I would add Jo March & her man, whom I shall not name lest you haven't read it. :)

    1. I have read it and good choice! I do love them together. :)

  7. This is a great list. There are some books here that I still need to read though.
    Thanks for sharing!

  8. Great topic - I love how you included tv shows - Yay for Doctor Who!
    Check out my TTT.

  9. You've got some good choices there! It's interesting that you put Mr. and Mrs. Gardiner in. Next time I read P&P I will have to pay closer attention to them. :)

    1. I LOVE Mr. and Mrs. Gardiner so much! Especially in the movie! :)

  10. This list is perfection. I just got sad thinking of Amy and Rory. It was bound to happen.
    Loving all the Jane Austen mentions! :)

    1. It was bound to happen. :( But there ending was so perfect!
      Thanks! :)

  11. Great choice for TTT :) Love those literally couples - agree with all!

  12. Yeah, that's a few more than 10. ;) But how could you possibly narrow it down when there are so many great couples in Jane Austen's books?
