TTT - Favorite Couples/Sidekicks

The top 10 weekly meme used to be hosted by The Broke and the Bookish they  handed over the reins to ThatArtsyReaderGirl who can be found HERE.  Each week she will focus on lists which cover various topics related to books and reading.

This week we are looking at our favorite couples.  I've decided to go even a step further and include in my list some of my favorite sidekick pairings.  So think out of the box while you look at some of my faves.\


No real surprise here.  I absolutely adore Veronica Speedwell and Stoker.

Daphne Templeton and Detective Black  and for that fact, Daphne and Socrates the Basset and Detective Black and Archie the Chihuahua.  So many great pairings in this series.

Lizbeth "Gunnie" Rose and Eli - not really a pairing yet but the series is still early.

Kate and Buttons the beagle.  Buttons stays by Kate's side not matter what monsters, real and medical, are thrown at her.

Rachel and Jinx.  That little pixie will forever be one of my favorite sidekicks.

Olivia and Gabriel or Olivia and Ricky.  Don't want to spoil this for anyone still reading the series.  But Gabriel is my favorite!

Atl and Cualli.  Cualli is one of the most badass sidekick dogs ever.

Charlie Brown and Snoopy.  Do I really need to explain this?
Lindsey and Sully and if I have to explain why, you clearly aren't reading this series - and should be!

Prince and Mayte.  Was their marriage perfect - no.  Did it end in divorce - yes.  But were the soulmates - most definitely.

So there you have it and I hope it kept you entertained.

  1. I love beagles! I'd love to have two of them! I loved Rachel and Jinx but quit the series over the continued Ivy trying to bite Rachel recycled plot. Yes to Snoopy!

    1. Every time I read about a beagle in a book I always think of you. I know you adore them! Yes the whole Ivy Rachel thing did get a bit old.

    1. I went into it totally expecting to dislike it because I thought she was riding his popularity when he died. Boy did she fool me. It was a great read and I have so much respect for her now. It also made me realize how much they loved each other and how hard it must have been to be married to him. Which is hard to admit because I have loved Prince since I was 16. However, he was a very complicated man.

    2. I know basically zero about their relationship, so I haven't had any feelings about it.

    3. It is only $2.99, so I nabbed it. 👍✨

  14. I need to pick up a A Curious Beginning again! I remember borrowing it from the library, but I didn't wind up having time to get all of the way through it before returning it (due to poor planning on my part...)

  15. This is a great list. And Lizbeth "Gunnie" Rose and Eli - I'm kind of thinking they'll get together too.
    Lynn :D
