Top 10: YA Couples

We all have those couples that, when we read about them, we can help but smile a bit goofy. Below is my list of the top ten couples in YA.

10. Jessica and Lucius from Jessica's Guide to Dating on the Dark Side by Beth Fantaskey
Jessica is a logical, levelheaded girl, and Lucius is a suave European vampire prince. He's come over to America to woo Jessica, because guess what? She's a vampire princess too! So of course what follows is a romance story with rollercoaster ups and downs, and some complications. Reading the wedding short story that Beth posted on her website just made me love them together even more.
9. Hades and Persephone from Radiant Darkness by Emily Whitman
I'm a major Greek mythology buff, and the myth of Hades and Persephone is my absolute favorite of all time. So of course, I love the pairing of Hades and Persephone in general. They came together well in this book, and I liked their portrayals. 
8. Raven and Alexander from Vampire Kisses by Ellen Schreiber 
Vampire Kisses is my fluff series, I guess you could say. The books themselves aren't too serious, so I take them very lightly. Raven and Alexander's romance is cute and compatible, but they love each other a lot, so I thought they deserved to be on here. And they've already been through like 8 books together, so... They have history, y'know?
7. Grace and Sam from Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater
Grace and Sam were so cute together! If I remember correctly, there was a part in Shiver where either Grace or Sam goes (I can't remember which) "Surprise attack." and kisses the other, and then the other goes "surprise attack back." *squee*
6. Kelley and Sonny from Wondrous Strange by Lesley Livingston 
Ah, my dearest Kelley and Sonny. This is one of those couples that I love to freaking death. They have an obvious chemistry, and they belong together. There's not really much else I can say about these two, they rock. :)
5. Jace and Clary from City of Bones by Cassandra Clare 
From the very beginning, I knew Jace and Clary were for each other. I never one believed they were in any way related, so all through the book series I was just rooting them on, and occasionally yelling "HE'S NOT YOUR BROTHER! JUMP HIS BONES!" Heh.
4. Ellie and Will from Angelfire by Courtney Allison Moulton
These two have one thing that none of the others have: Time. They have known each other for centuries, fighting side by side, and Will protecting Ellie. They know each other like no one else knows them, and that's a really important thing for a relationship. Ellie and Will have a lot of obstacles still to overcome, and I can't wait to see how they handle it together.
3. Luc and Frannie from Personal Demons by Lisa Desrochers 
Forget Gabriel. I'm Team Luc all the way. Luc is sexy and seductive, and he sets Frannie on fire (figuratively of course). He sets me on too! 
2. Alec and Magnus from City of Bones by Cassandra Clare
I. Love. These. Two. Love them. I'm a major supporter of LGBT stories and characters in YA, and to have these two as a couple in a hugely popular series is awesome. They make a very cute couple, and are good foils for each other. Alec is more serious, whileI picture Magnus as an Asian version of Jareth the Goblin King. (Magnus is Asian, right? Because I'm having a massive brain block. Someone please clarify this. I've always pictured him Asian...)
1. Shane and Claire from Glass Houses by Rachel Caine
Shane and Claire are my favorite YA couple right now. They need to get married and have babies. That is all.
