Welcome to day 3 of Fictional Fever Week at Fiery Reads! If you’re just joining in, I posted the schedule for the event in the introduction post, which you can check out here.
For day 3, Jessica is here to share her favorite literary OTPs!
Meet the Author
Happy Valentines! I’m Jessica and I’ve been blogging at NovelCravings for just over a year. I am a mother, a reader, Hufflepuff, dog owner and caretaker of orchids. In my cup, you will find coffee and on my shelves, you will find mostly YA.
I find that people tend to think of Valentine’s as a couples-only holiday. I prefer to see it as a holiday to celebrate all the loves in my life and share the joy to those around me. So today I would like to share with you, my favorite OTPs and I’m betting we have a few in common. These are mostly messy, complicated, slow burn romances. I didn’t realize those were my preference until I made this list and saw the common trend. No insta-love here! I also kept it to book related OTPs only or this list would never end.
Cress and Thorne – Winter by Marissa Meyer
I adore these two and they remind me so much of Rapunzel and Flynn from Tangled!

Elide and Lorcan – Empire of Storms by Sarah J Maas
These two! I really like relationships that begin when the two people involved realize they’ve underestimate each other.

Inej and Kaz – Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo
These two have so many scars and so much baggage but they find a way to fit their jagged edges together and it’s so beautiful!!

Nina and Mattias – Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo
This Romeo and Juliet couple has stolen my heart with their big hearts and smart mouths!

Iseult and Aeduan – Windwitch by Susan Dennard
They may be my favorite OTP of all time, I love the way they challenge one another.

And here are some OTPs I love that I couldn’t find fanart for. (hint hint)
Someone artistic please make my dreams come true and make some fanart of these perfect couples.
Dram and Orion – Flashfall by Jenny Moyer
The loyalty and fierceness of their love for one another is intense! Plus friends & survivors, to lovers is just the greatest love story.
Arianna and Cvareh from The Alchemists of Loom by Elise Kova
Another hate-to-love, I just can’t get enough, this is an epic slow burning ship!
Kady and Ezra from Illuminae by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff
Nothing kept these two apart, not intergalactic war, delusional AI or even space zombies. #relationshipgoals
