When I think of soul-ripping, I just hear emotionally traumatizing. So here are the romances that hurt my soul on a deep level.
Simon and Eliana from The Empirium trilogy – I still can’t talk about the end of Kingsbane. Talk about confusing me and my heart. I don’t know if i’m betrayed or in love or just crazy?
Karou and Akiva from The Daughter of Smoke and Bone trilogy – We went up and down and back and forth with these two. Different sides of the war, back together, and then forced apart. I love them because actually found some weird way to get past things and grow.
Nina and Matthias from The Six of Crows duology – Most of these had me screaming HOW DARE YOU, but none more than these two. They are badass Romeo and Juliet and I cannot talk about the pain I went through with these two.
Dara and Nahri from The Daevabad trilogy – I know people have opinions about Dara’s past. Yeah, he was pretty horrible and I don’t deny that. But for whatever reason, I cannot get over him. I need this ship to go so badly and I may be the only one still on it.
Mare and Maven from The Red Queen series – Yeah, yeah, everyone loves Cal. I DO NOT. I want Maven to get his redemption. That hurt and I have re-written it all in my head. If you disagree, that’s cool, but I will be in the corner plugging my ears and living in my alternate reality.
Okay, time to put the pain on someone else. You can pick happy romances guys… I just was in an emo mood lol.
