TTT REWIND: Top ten extra special love stories


Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl, featuring a different top 10 theme each week. This week’s topic, just in time for Valentine’s Day, is a love freebie — so we all can come up with our own spin on a love-related post. Well…

I was wracking my brain for an idea, and happened to stumble upon my TTT list from February 2016… and realized that I still like it! Without further ado, here’s what I wrote during Valentines week, two years ago:


I’m keeping it simple, and going with a list of love stories that have really stayed with me:

Love Across Time

Jamie and Claire, Outlander by Diana Gabaldon

OL quote

Henry and Clare, The Time Traveler’s Wife by Audrey Niffenegger


Richard and Elise, Somewhere in Time by Richard Matheson


Married Love

Rosetta and Jeremiah, I Shall Be Near To You by Erin Lindsay McCabe


Don and Rosie, The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion


Unrequited Love

Severus Snape and Lily Evans, the Harry Potter series

TTC quote

Love Between Friends

Maddie and Julie, Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein


Supernatural Love

  1. This is a fun take on this week’s topic. I love Richard and Elise! Somewhere in Time, the movie, is one of my favorites. Is it based on a book? If so, I need to read it stat. I wanted to name my daughter MacKenna Elyse because My middle name is Elyse and I love the name MacKenna and I got it after Elise Makenna. I know it’s weird, but it’s true, lol.

    • Oh yes, the movie Somewhere in Time is based on the book by Richard Matheson. I’ve always loved the movie, and finally read the book just a few years ago. There are some differences, but it’s definitely worth reading. How cool about the names!
