Hi everyone! I hope you’ve had a good week since I last did one of these, mine was relatively quiet, but I have a very busy week coming up! I’m going to see Hairspray in Glasgow with my friends tomorrow as a late birthday celebration, so I’m very excited for that. Anyway, it’s Tuesday again, so that means another Top Ten Tuesday from the lovely ladies over at The Broke and The Bookish. This week’s topic is Top Ten Book Boyfriends. I don’t know if it’s kind of weird for a 21 year old to still have crushes on 16/17 year old fictional boys, but that’s what you get when you read mostly YA I guess! And let’s face it, fictional guys are so much better than real ones. So here we go, my Top Ten Book Boyfriends:
- Percy Jackson-PJO, HOO & TOA-Rick Riordan
I would like to clarify that this is current 18 year old Percy rather than 12 year old Percy because that would be really weird (although when I was 14, it was 12 year old Percy, this has been a very long standing crush!). Percy’s sassy, goofy, loyal and lovable and I think he would be a great boyfriend. Of course we have the minor problem that I ship him and Annabeth……
2. Connor Lassiter-Unwind Dystology-Rick Riordan
Okay so he’s a bit reckless and has kind of a short temper, but he’s also really kind and sassy and sweet, and a bit self deprecating and I love that! Plus he’s so protective of Risa (his girlfriend in the novels), so you know he’d be a great boyfriend!
3. Peeta Mellark-The Hunger Games Trilogy-Suzanne Collins
HE BAKES. That is all. I could have bread and cake and other baked goods whenever I wanted and that’s a surefire way to my heart. Plus he’s cute and sweet and everything, but mostly the cake.
4. Dorian Havilliard-Throne of Glass series-Sarah J Maas
He’s actually around the same age as me, so this one wouldn’t be weird! I have a thing for tall, dark, handsome guys, so he definitely fits the bill, plus he likes to read and you barely ever find that in real life guys!
5. Kell Maresh-Shades of Magic Trilogy-VE Schwab
Kell is sassy and brooding, and a little lost and kind of flawed and you just want to give him a massive hug. Plus he has an awesome coat that hopefully if I was his girlfriend, he would let me share?
6. Rhy Maresh-Shades of Magic Trilogy-VE Schwab
Also sassy (I may have a problem with sassy guys) and incredibly charming and witty but also incredibly clever, he speaks loads of different languages and I find that so attractive in a guy. Plus I love the brotherly bond between him and Kell.
7. Will Greyton-The Glory-Lauren St John
If I could find a guy like this in my real life, I would be set. He’s kind, he loves horses, he wants to be a vet, he’s brave and generous and amazing and now I’m starting to realise why guys like this aren’t real.
8. Jin-Rebel of The Sands Trilogy-Alwyn Hamilton
Jin is cute, mysterious, charming and funny and really clever, definitely the sort of guy that I would love to date in real life.
9. Sam Cortland-The Assassin’s Blade-Sarah J Maas
WHY SARAH WHY? Sam is freaking boyfriend goals! He’s cute, sweet, snarky and just altogether perfect for Celaena, I would love to find a Sam Cortland in real life.
10. Newt-The Maze Runner Trilogy-James Dashner
Okay so this is slightly more based on the movie, because Newt in my head was nowhere near as hot as Thomas Brodie-Sangster, but still, Newt is British and I find his accent very sexy (and no I’m not biased just because I’m British. Irish accents are actually the sexiest).
So how about you? Who are your book boyfriends, or girlfriends, or both? Do we share any? Let me know in the comments!
Next week’s topic is about books that scream Autumn, so I’m going to be giving you Top Ten Books To Get You In The Mood For Autumn. I have recently finished Charlotte Says, so I’m hoping to get a review of that up soon, but I don’t know when as I have a lot of work to do this week!
