Happy Valentines Day folks! :D
In honor of Valentines Day I have decided to do a fun little book boyfriends post! I did one of these types of posts last year so I figured it would be fun to do it again. I mean who doesn't love talking about their favorite fictional guys? This list has a lot of new fictional guys that I've discovered in the last year and ff course there are some old ones who I just can't kick to the curb like Gale Hawthorne will NEVER be removed from this post! EVER! Anyway here's a small selection of my top book boyfriends!
Gale Hawthorne - The Hunger Games Trilogy by Suzanne Collins
I know everyone else loves Peeta but while reading The Hunger Games Trilogy I just couldn't get enough of Gale. I loved him from the minute Katniss first mentions him. I'm not even kidding, in fact after I finished The Hunger Games I went online and was shocked, I repeat SHOCKED, to discover that everyone else loved Peeta. Peeta?! BUT WHAT ABOUT GALE?!?!?! What can I say, I like my guys more rugged and outdoorsy like Gale not soft and artsy like Peeta. :P However I will say that I'm a HUGE fan of movie Peeta, and by movie Peeta I mean Josh Hutcherson. He's just about the most adorable thing ever. But Liam Hemsworth who is playing Gale? Yeah, unfortunately I'm not a fan. *sob* :/
Hale - The Heist Society Series by Ally C
HALE!!!! Yet another oldie, but goodie. And yes, the first two guys on my book boyfriends list do have names that rhyme. A third and it will start become a pattern.... Another irony is that the girls Gale and Hale both like have names that can be shortened to Kat. Definitely a little strange.... Anyway Hale is the quintessential best guy friend who starts to become more. He knows Kat better than almost anyone and everyone knows that the best boyfriends are the ones who are your best friends in real life! Not that I would know about this since I seem to be eternally single but it's what I've heard...
Augustus Waters - The Fault in Our Stars by John Green
Here's a new addition to my book boyfriend list! I think it's impossible to read The Fault in Our Stars and not fall in love with Augustus Waters. He's a perfect combination of sarcasm and philosophical wit, plus he's described as being blindingly handsome (anyone whose read TFiOS should get this reference XD). What's not to love? I need to find my own Augustus. HIGHLIGHT FOR SPOILER: But preferably one that doesn't die before we can live happily ever after together.... *sob*
Ron Weasley - The Harry Potter Series by J.K. Rowling
This is probably one of my lesser known book crushes but I just adore Ron Weasley. There's just something about him that I love but I can't really put my finger on it. Maybe it's the way he underestimates himself in Quidditch or how he's always so adorably awkward when it comes to his relationship with Hermione. He's just so human and that's what makes him great! Oh and I also love the Weasley twins. And Neville Longbottom too! Dang it who doesn't love Neville Longbottom? He starts out all awkward and insecure and grows into this awesome badass wizard who also happens to be pretty good looking. ;) But yeah I guess my Harry Potter crushes aren't reserved for Ron alone. :)
Percy Jackson - The Percy Jackson Series by Rick Riordan
This may or may not be directly related to the fact that Logan Lerman plays him in the Percy Jackson movie but I still really like this character. His sarcasm is killer and who doesn't love a guy who can trace his lineage back to the Greek gods? Pretty sweet if you ask me. :)
Matt - Twenty Boy Summer by Sarah Ockler
Okay so I know that Matt is dead and all that *sob* but gosh darn it I love him anyways! Not only was he totally sweet but he also appreciated books and literature in a way that no guy in real life seems to. I'm sure there are guys somewhere out there who love literature as much as I do but they are few and far between. Sure, it bugs me that Matt was keeping his and Anna's relationship a secret (Seriously dude? WHAT'S UP WITH THAT?!) but overall I like him. A LOT.
Noah - The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin
Two words: British accent. If an author gives her fictional guy a British accent it's nearly impossible for him to go wrong. Top that off with the fact that Noah is a sort of artsy hipster with swagger and bedhead and yeah, he's definitely awesome.
Kenji - Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi
Awww yes my book boyfriends list always has to have the token Asian! When I read Shatter Me Kenji was hands down my favorite part of the book. He's sarcastic, hilarious, and just a bit douchey but that's what makes him so fun. I don't know if I would really want to date this guy in real life, but be friends with him? Heck yes!
So that's my nice new list of favorite book boyfriends! These guys are by no means replacing my old list (more like just getting added to it) but I figured you guys wouldn't want an entire rehash of last year. :P
If you want to check out last years post you can read it here.
What fictional guy would you choose to be your book boyfriend on Valentines Day? I would definitely pick Gale. If anyone knows of any ethnically ambiguous and swoonworthy guys who also happen to love the great outdoors AND be single send him my way will ya? :P
