Jamie and Landon from A Walk to Remember


Jamie is a bit quirky, different, but a very giving soul. Landon is reckless, does what others expect him to do, and most times thinks about himself. When the two meet, a spark flies and Landon now only sees the great things about the inspiring Jamie. However, Jamie has a secret that she hasn’t shared with anyone.

Rose and Jack from Titantic


We all the story of the first-class beautiful Rose who becomes entranced by the third-class light-hearted Jack. Their love story blossoms on the ship, Titanic. Where Rose felt tied to a life she wasn’t happy with, Jack opened her eyes to a different type of living. Unfortunately, sometimes the right thing isn’t meant to be.

Allie and Noah from The Notebook


Young summer love brought these two together. What felt like a love that would never make it through has turned into a love that is beautiful, pure, and everlasting.

Louisa and Will from Me Before You


Quirky and lovable Louisa does her best to help support her family by working from job to job. She lands a job as the caregiver of Will, who is left paralyzed after an accident. Her cheeriness is tested. However, the happy Louisa and depressed Will begin to form a bond and the young man is left wondering if perhaps life is worth living.

Hazel and Gus from The Fault in Our Stars


Okay, I left the one that I hysterically cried when watching the movie for the end. Sometimes I get teary-eyed for certain movies or books, but nothing too major. This one, though, left me in pieces. So much so that my hubby (fiance at the time) and I had to wait for me to calm down before leaving the theaters.

Sixteen-year-old Hazel has cancer and meets Gus in a cancer support group. The two embark on a journey of young love. When Gus has the opportunity to travel and meet an author in Amsterdam, Hazel is determined to go as well. They share this adventure, but sometimes cancer is not a kind friend.

I Tag:

Well, that’s all! It was a very soul-ripping experience to relive these relationships, but one I fully enjoyed. Thank you for taking the time to read and I hope you enjoyed, too!

    1. No worries! I had fun with this one. Really? Is it because of the outcome of their situations or because of their personalities? Allie and Noah are a great couple! Hope you enjoy doing this one! 🙂

      1. Well, first of all, stories where one of them dies at the end really bug me because I love happy endings! So 90% of this list is already a no for me XD Then, the chemistry has to be really good and believable. The characters don’t have to necessarily be likeable (I do enjoy unlikable personalities quite a lot) but they need to work well together.
        There’s not a single, foolproof way to get me to like a pairing. It varies a lot. It’s either there or it’s not 😉
        Thank you! ❤

      2. Yeah, someone dying does tend to make me upset as well. I guess the “positive” that comes from watching these movies and/or reading these books is that it helps me appreciate what I do have and is a little reminder to live life fully because you never know what could happen.

        I hear you about the chemistry needs to real/believable. I don’t remember not liking the chemistry in this list, but it’s been a while since I’ve seen/read any of these.

        Thank you for sharing your thoughts! 🙂

  1. Thank you for participating! i need the jumbo size pack of toilet paper for Sam’s Club for your choices. I can’t bring myself to read or watch The Fault in Our Stars. I’m need to beef up my emotional skin in order to endure it, lol.

    1. It was so much fun! Yes, these definitely broke my heart and were very soul ripping. The Fault in Our Stars got to me sooo bad. I don’t know how my hubby wasn’t embarrassed of my crying fit, lol.

      1. My husband is the same way! I’m such an easier crier. I sobbed in the theater at the end of Wonder Woman and he looked at me like “what is wrong with you??” hahaha

      2. Too funny! I didn’t realize that Wonder Woman was emotional. I tend to stay away from superhero movies, but this one looks promising (especially if you can get emotional because of it 🙂 ).

      3. It’s very promising! I’ve seen it twice already and the second time I was prepared and didn’t sob. Just shed a few tears, haha. It’s a good kind of emotional depending on how you decide to look at it.
