This week's Top 5 Wednesday topic: Side Ships
Favorite relationships that don't involve the protagonists.

Finnick + Annie | The Hunger Games
*cue the tears* 

Marlee + Carter | The Selection series
Loved these two. They went through a lot to be together and I loved seeing them get a HEA.

Dee + Archer | Opposition
Dee deserved some happiness after a previous loss and she and Archer were so cute together.

Magnus + Alec | The Mortal Instruments
Is there anyone who doesn't ship MALEC? I mean, seriously... they are perfection.

Lucien + Elain | A Court of Wings and Ruin
I'd like to see it happen. I've always liked Lucien and I think he and Elain would make each other happy. BUT... (highlight the following text for *spoilers*. You've been warned!)... I know I wasn't the only one getting the Azriel and Elain vibes! And since he and Mor obviously are not going to happen, I'm kind of digging an Az/Elain pairing. Yeah, I'd feel for Lucien, but I'm strangely shipping this one.

What's your favorite side ship?


  1. Oh gosh, I love Finnick and Annie in The Hunger Games!!


  2. I don't know any of these!! I can't think of any off the top of my head but there were definitely side characters in books I hoped got together!

    1. Okay, I'm scratching my head that you don't know *any* of these, Grace. Did you never read The Hunger Games trilogy?

  3. Haven't read any of these yet, but I really can't think of any right now. I'm sure there are many that I've read and enjoyed too. LOL

    1. It took a while to actually remember some of my favorite side ships! :)

  4. Finnick + Annie OH YEAH!!! Those two were SO cute! and I was definitely shipping Magnus + Alec before I abandoned the series :)

    1. I adored MALEC in the books. I'm not sure how they're portrayed in the TV series. I watched the first two episodes and was so unimpressed with the casting/acting/special effects that I gave up on it. LOL
