Prom season is in full sway, and the ‘promposals’ have been pouring in for months. From the hopelessly romantic to the cringe-worthy, promposals are looking pretty darn similar to their wedding counterparts. And rightly so, some promposals have been pulling from literature as sources of inspiration.

And they are precious. Here are some of our favorites below.

 

1. Beauty and the Beast

We would be doing everyone a disservice if we didn’t mention Beauty and the Beast, especially on how much of a hit the movie was. We really like how realistic the rose is!

2. A Song of Ice and Fire by George R. R. Martin

For some of us, prom really is this much of an ordeal, but this sweet friend promises to be there with him.

3. Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling

I mean, seriously, what’s a dorky promposal without Harry Potter? This particular one includes a pun, which means it’s definitely after my own heart.

4. Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling

It’s not the letter to Hogwarts we all dream about, but it’s a close second. Score points for creativity!

5. Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling

Ironically, it’s the seeker that’s quite the catch. Look at that Golden Snitch!

6. Marvel Comics

You had to expect Captain America to make an entrance. He’s the hero of the day!

7. The Fault in Our Stars by John Green

I’m not crying. You’re crying.

8. The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins

I mean, the odds in the actual books were extremely small no matter how you looked at them, but it can be quite the compliment in that case! (In a Peeta-esque, self-deprecating way…)

9. The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins

Any way you look at The Hunger Games, bringing up Peeta’s devotion to Katniss is pretty stinking cute.

10. Divergent by Veronica Roth

Another clever play on words, and amazing body paint. Say yes, girl!

Bonus: Message in a Bottle

Not technically a book, but poets everywhere deserve the nod given by this one.
