Happy Wednesday Storytellers and welcome back to another Bookending Autumn post! We are smack dab in the middle of week two of the event and I am head over heels in love with everyone’s posts! If you don’t know what Bookending Autumn is, its a month long even in October that was created by myself and Clo @ Cuppa Clo where we aspire to bring the bookish community closer together through the platform we love the most–blogging! Each day we have different prompts from different hosts that participants can replicate! I am wickedly excited to check out everyone’s posts and prompts as we get more into the month as our hosts this year are dishing out quality content! You can catch me smiling from ear to ear as I get to meet all of you on your blogs and on our Twitter (@bookend_events if you haven’t followed, you totally should!) page!
Today, the lovely Jamsu @ Jamsudreams wraps up her reign with a swoon worthy prompt that will be sure to light the flames of your hearts this wicked season. If you haven’t already checked her content out and her original prompt–please do so! She is an absolute gem that I love to pieces!
Also don’t forget that we have a blog hopping masterlist! The list features all of our participants and those who are participating in Bookending Autumn can put their post links next to their name for easy blog hopping! Can’t wait to see all your amazing posts! And with that, let’s get into today’s prompt!
Love Potion Gone Wrong
What are some of your favorite star-crossed lovers?
Two people who care immensely for each other but due to their tragic circumstances cannot be together?
Okay, so I am going to try really hard and make sure that this list isn’t entirely made up of Jennifer L. Armentrout books. In my eyes she is the ultimate queen of forbidden/star-crossed romance and you will probably note that in this list. The Covenant series is probably my favorite forbidden romance series from her. Greek Mythology meets vampire academy (kinda) this series made me swoon till thine kingdom come.
I had to put the OG starcrossed lovers in this list. What thespian would I be if I didn’t?
OKAY IT IS HARDER THAN IT LOOKS TO ONLY PUT ONE JLA SERIES IN HERE FAM! In this case, we’ve got the spin-off series of the Dark Elements trilogy (which can also be seen as a love triangle/star-crossed romance) that involves gargoyles, angles, and very sexy demons. Interested in more of my thoughts? You can check out my full review for this gem here: Storm and Fury by Jennifer L. Armentrout Review
I had to go deep into my goodreads shelves to pull this one out. I haven’t read this series since I was in high school, so whose to say if this is still any good, but damn did I swoon like my life was on a tilt-a-whirl when I read Helen and Lucas’ story.
Maybe this is a stretch but Peeta and Katniss are low key star-crossed lovers, I mean only one is suppose to survive so 💁🏽♀️. The stanning of their relationship was everything in my youth–burnt bread in the rain never made my heart stutter like it did in that moment.
What are you favorite forbidden romances?
