This is top five Wednesday and the topic for this week is angsty romances. Gosh this is SUCH cliche sometimes, but I am a huge sucker for a good angsty romance. There is just something about them that I hate to love and just… can’t stay away from. Some of these are canon, some aren’t— yet, I am not giving spoilers. Some of these are just characters I ship together and think that they would have SO much angst.
001. Cal Calore and Mare Barrow from Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard
I am a huge advocate for this ship like… I am one of those who shipped them from book one. But they have so many differences and it’s not just because of their blood and their status, but their ideals are wildly different. I mean I think they could work, but there would be so much angst.
002. Magnus Damora and Cleo Bellos from Fallen Kingdoms by Morgan Rhodes
This ship is chalk full of angst. The lead up to the start of their relationship is was rocky enough and even though they are now together the angst is still there, still going strong. But sometimes I just wish they could be happy because they deserve it okay?
003. Elias Veturius and Helene Aquilla from An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir
I feel like I am the only one who ships these two. I just absolutely love the idea of them together Also don’t get me wrong, I do ship Elias and Laia. I just feel like these two would be great together but there would be so much angst because they are so different from one another.
This post is relatively short and these are honestly all of the angsty romances that I could think of off the top of my head!
