I just realized I haven’t done one of these in forever! Top 5 Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Sam @ Thoughts on Tomes. Topics are set for every week so to join in on the fun just check out our goodreads group. This week’s topic is Favorite Non-Canon Ships. These are the couples you love, but they never got together in canon (canon meaning: what actually happened in the text). So basically ships you wished sailed but didn’t.
Number one is the mother of all unsailed ships and that is:
1. The Shadow and Bone Trilogy by Leigh Bardugo: Nikolai and Alina
Anyone who has read this series will totally get this!
Coming in close second is this pair:
2. A Game of Thrones by Gorge R. R. Martin: Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen
I admit this isn’t a bookish ship (
because I’m yet to read the books) but I don’t care. I also don’t care that these two may be long lost siblings or whatever, I mean no one bats an eye at Cercei and Jaime!
This next one is a bit of a spoiler for those that haven’t read A Court of Mist and Fury!
3. A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas: Feyre and Tamlin
I know I’ve stated (countless times) that Sarah J. Maas can do no wrong, but what I’ve learned to accept is she can do – not wrong – but slight injustices. I mean poor TamTam, I’ll always have a special place in my heart for him. When I had learned that book boyfriends were actually a thing and it was not considered psychotic to have one, Tamlin was it for me and then ACOMAF happened – sigh.
4. The Host by Stephanie Meyer: Wanda and Jared
Screw Melanie and Ian, it should have been Wanda and Jared!
5. Percy Jackson Series: Percy and Rachel
Don’t get me wrong I’m fully team Percabeth but I always find myself wondering what could have been you know? Percy and Rachel would have been great though I think it would be a stretch to say I ship them, I would probably say boat them, that seems more fitting…
