The Monday Poll: The YA Lit Couple You’d Change
Last week, we wanted to know which YA lit couple you’re most hoping will make it work. Even though the end of Rainbow Rowell’s Eleanor & Park was pretty conclusive, it looks like a lot of us are still concerned about this couple’s future– we really want them to make it work! Eleanor & Park pulled in 63% of the vote. In second place was Magnus and Alec from Cassandra Clare’s Mortal Instruments series, with 12% of the vote. The final book comes out this year, so maybe we’ll get some resolution! We also received a few great suggestions in the comments last week– Shari suggested Perry and Aria from Veronica Rossi’s sci-fi/fantasy Ever Night series, and Jenni wrote in with Harry and Craig from Two Boys Kissing and Liza and Annie from Annie on My Mind. You can see detailed results for all of our previous polls in the Polls Archive. Thanks to all of you who voted and commented!
This week, we’re continuing the romance theme in honor of Valentine’s Day a little early and asking another question about YA lit couples. You may have seen the news that J.K. Rowling expressed that Harry and Hermione may have been a more compatible couple than Ron and Hermione. Whatever you think about this belated relevation, it opens up an interesting question to ponder: what romantic pairing in YA lit would you go back and change, if you could? In the interest of avoiding spoilers, we’re going to stick to book/series titles, rather than mentioning specific couples’ names. Vote in the poll below, and tell us in the comments if we missed something!
