Today’s topic post was supposed to be about literary characters that we have crushes on but that’s not really my style. Also, it’s October and I’m all about the horror and various other weird shit. So today I’m discussing the top ten creepy pairings in literature.

You (You #1) by Caroline Kepnes
Girl visits bookshop. Cashier takes down her credit card info and stalks her online (thank you, social media). He sets up a chance run-in with said girl and while the two end up together, well, Joe was one creepy son of a bitch.

The Collector by John Fowles
Frederick becomes obsessed with a stranger and decides to keep her in his basement until she starts to love him. Right. Completely normal.

Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov
Honestly, do I have to say anything?

Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn
Nick and Amy were happily married until she disappeared without a trace. View Spoiler »

Warm Bodies by Isaac Marion
Sure, it wasn’t icky to read about but when it really comes down to it, girl got with a dead guy. Gross.

Fifty Shades of Grey (Fifty Shades #1) by E.L. James
Suuurreee you can talk about how hot Christian is but dude was straight up nothing but a nicely dressed psycho stalker.

The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood
One of the most stomach-turning and unsettling reads of the bunch (especially after having it brought to visual life on Hulu).

Fairest (The Lunar Chronicles #3.5) by Marissa Meyer
Queen Levana was always the evil villain but using your physic powers to force someone into marrying you is a crazy low.

Game of Thrones (A Song of Ice and Fire #1) by George R.R. Martin
Plenty of creepy pairings to choose from but Jamie and Cersei take the top prize for sure.

Origins (Alphas 0.5) by Ilona Andrews
When some creepy vampire man kidnaps you and your child and forces you to let him feed on you but it’s okay, you love him by the end of the 157 pages.

    You have some very creepy pairings hereot t. Jamie and Cersei – YUK! Also, I never got the whole 50 Shades Christian is so hot movement. I read the first book because was curious but it reminded me of Edward and Bella (and it should since it started out as fan fiction) that it soured my stomach. You make a very valid point about Warm Bodies!

    Ugh Jamie and Cersei make me want to gag. And I will never be supportive of Christian Grey-abusive relationships are not okay, ever. And yes, Gone Girl’s Nick and Amy are a very dysfunctional couple.

    Ehh… THIS TOPIC WAS SO MUCH BETTER! Totally love what you did this week! And you’re right, love interests and ships are not the Halloween thing.
    You by Caroline Kepnes sounds SO creepy and right up my alley! I really want to read it, especially since I’ve never experienced a book written in the second person. It sounds very original.
    God, Lolita gives me the chills. I need to read that book too. I tried once and it was HARD, but I still want to keep trying. What a crazy son of a b**
    Fifty Shades of Grey is #EW, and Levana is damaged. I’m looking forward to The Handmaid’s Tale as well!
    REALLY amazing post. It was highly enjoyable!
