This week’s prompt:
Top 5 Favorite Book Boy Friends
Bookish boyfriends. We all have them, right? We’ve seen the “Boys in books are better” merchandise and we wish our favorite characters were real…
I guess maybe I’m just not the same as other book nerds. I mean, I don’t particular like to smell books, as I’m allergic to dust and so I associate old books with dust and sneezing, so I already know that I am different.
The Inkheart books really had a good point… As much as we love our favorite stories, having characters come to life or living within our favorite fictional worlds have major consequences.
So I don’t really have book boyfriends because I think my husband is the best and, also, some of my favorite male characters are a little scary….
But in the interest of fun, I will choose some of my favorite male characters that I maybe wouldn’t mind running into if I lived in that world….
Warner from Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi. Ruthless, cunning, powerful… I went from hating his guts to admiring him and rooting for him to steal Juliette’s heart. I love his character.
The Darkling from The Grisha Trilogy by Leigh Bardugo. Why am I choosing a villain? What is wrong with me? I really loved his character and I felt like the story could have worked with Alina choosing the dark side. He just captivated me. I will forever be disappointed the story didn’t take the direction I wanted….
Liam from The Darkest Minds by Alex Bracken. I had to put a sweetheart on this list… He just melts your heart.
Eric Northman from the Sookie Stackhouse novels by Charlaine Harris. Another blonde? I actually hate blonde hair on guys, but you don’t read books for appearances, right? How can you not be a big attracted to and kind of scared of Eric’s massive personality and need for control? I’m a fan, even when I tried not to be.
Patch from Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick. As annoyingly YA as these books were, I loved the mystery and darkness of Patch. I love the dark and brooding heroes who might not be good, but are intriguing. He was definitely in that category.
I can’t be sure these are my top 5… I just picked 5 at random.
Who are your book boyfriends?
