Best Book/Movie/TV Couples

Tristan and Isolde from Merlin

I really like the way the tv show, Merlin, portrays these two. Although it doesn’t delve deep into their story, I feel like their characters are given a lot of “oomf” and personality. Need I mention their dedication to one another??? They are the gold standard for relationships.

Books I Have Read in School and Didn’t Like

One thing many books I read in high school had in common was that they were all depressing. (Okay, so maybe not all of them are, but I’d say a good chunk of them are downers). Why do highschoolers need to be subjected to such a low and depressed state? Why not broaden our horizons and expose us to books that are uplifting or interesting?
