Couples of Christmas Countdown!

Alexa from Not Enough Bookshelves has a countdown of her favourite couples from books she's read this year. she is also running a great contest, click here to find out more.
so i get to post about my favourite book couple this year, which is quite fun, but very hard. i thought I'd split it into 3 categories, siblings, friends and romantic relationships. there's 4 books in each category .

Romance
1 Jarvis and Electra in Jarvis 24 by David Metzenthen.
there connection was just so strong and powerful, i was honestly in awe of it.
2 Elly and Will in I Left my Mobile at the Mall by Wendy Harmer
they were so sweet with each other and it was very realistic and Australian teenagery. i was honestly jealous of Elly at points.
these 2 aren't new realises. but i only read them this year.
3 Rosie and Asher in Guitar Highway Rose by Brigid Lowry.
they just had so much fun together, and Asher was so cool.
4 Juice and Val in Juice by Katy Watson.
they both helped each other and needed each other in that moment, yet it was very believable. i liked that.

friendships
1 Alice and Valery in Yankee Girl by Mary Ann Rodman.
they weren't very close friends, but Alice learnt so much from just from the fact that they weren't friends, that it was favourite friendships this year.
2 Bruno and Shamuel in The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas by John Boyne.
so sad, but incredible
3 Todd and Viola in the Chaos Walking Trilogy by Patrick Ness

Siblings
1 Lia and Emma in Wintergirls by Laurie Halse Anderson.
Emma saved her without even knowing it.
2 Annabel, Whitney and Kristen in Just Listen by Sarah Dessen.
the way they connect sometimes, yet sometimes barley know their sisters was quite like me and my brothers.

there is my very long post, but i can never make desisions. ask me what my favourite book is an expect me to talk for half an hour. anyway, 10 great books, read them.

Oh, and how do you get the word verification on your comments? I've been trying to work it out, but can't so far...
