Habibi. Hayati. Roohi.
My love, my life, my soul, the words meant, but their meanings went deeper than that.
Habibi was for friends and love that was real enough.
Hayati was when love became an all-encompassing thing. Deeper and deeper, until one became the others life.
Roohi was when a soul twined with its match and loved with the force of a thousand suns. When it slipped beneath the heart and tangled in the very fibres of an existence. – We Free the Stars

“Do you not listen to me when I speak?” he answered shakily, his lip quirking up. “I love you. I have always loved you.” – These Violent Delights

I would have come for you. And if I couldn’t walk, I’d crawl to you, and no matter how broken we were, we’d fight our way out together-knives drawn, pistols blazing. Because that’s what we do. We never stop fighting. – Crooked Kingdom

So here are my favourite quotes that make my heart burst and leave me a wreck. Do share yours!

Top 10 Tuesday – My Favourite Ships

So as this week’s topic is a love freebie I thought I would share my favourite bookish couples! You can find all the prompts for top ten Tuesday here

So here are my favourite bookish couples!

Ali & Nahri from The City of Brass – Look it’s no secret how much I absolutely adore these two. The way they slowly became friends and found solace in each other. The way they accepted each other completely. I just love them!

Adam & Zayneb from Love From A to Z – They are such an adorable couple and I just love how much they care for each other and want the best for each other and how they made sure to keep their relationship halal and put Allah first. Just…I love them.

Khalid and Shahrzad from The Wrath and the Dawn – The enemies to lovers trope was used so effectively that despite Shazi wanting to kill him I was rooting for them the whole way. Also Khalid has some swoon worthy lines in this duology which made me melt.

Kaz and Inej from Six of Crows – I love them so much. But I love how they know that the timing isn’t right for them together so they also don’t hold each other back.

Nasir and Zafira from We Hunt the Flame – I died reading We Free the Stars because of these two and I just needed them to be okay end up together. The deep love they have for each other where they see the parts of each other no one else sees. Amazing.

Haidee & Arjun from The Never Tilting World – They went from reluctant allies to friends to lovers and I was so here for it! I also loved seeing their relationship from others perspectives because you could see how smitten they were.

Percy and Annabeth from the Percy Jackson series – The fact that they took 5 years to even realise they liked each other was amazing. Everyone else could see it except them and then we end with the underwater kiss. Perfection.

Laia & Elias from An Ember in the Ashes – The deep and tender way they care for each other and how they are a strength for each other. I just loved seeing their relationship develop even when it was painful.

Roma & Juliette from These Violent Delights – The tension and the angst killed me and then that ending. I am terrified because I don’t know how they can have a happy ending despite all they been through and I just want them to be happy together.

Ayesha & Khalid from Ayesha at Last – The way these two have the worst first impressions of each other and yet they slowly realise there is more than the first impression and yet they let others get in between them but then there is a happy ending where they start over and clear the air.

So these are my favourite couples. Let me know who your favourite couples are!
