Top Ten Tuesday, as always, is hosted at my other blog — The Broke & the Bookish
This week’s topic: Top Ten Fictional Crushes In Books
No shame here! I crush on and swoon over fictional men while I read! I’ve got BROS…in different area codes. (Please get that reference or I’ll just look dumb).
Travis from Something Like Normal by Trish Doller: Oh my goodness. I love him so much. One of my newest fictional crushes. I can’t even tell you how much I love him. SO MANY REASONS WHYYYY!
Tucker from Unearthly series by Cynthia Hand: AHHH I love him. He’s sweet and interesting and a HOT COWBOY.
Rowan from Wanderlove by Kirsten Hubbard: I fell in love with him and could imagine my fictional self traveling and exploring and talking about all the beauty in the world and experiencing it with him. At the heart of his philosophy of travel was something that I share in.
Jay from The Body Finder series by Kimberly Derting: He’s one of those nice guys that I know I would have gone for in high school. Super supportive and sweet but he also shares his opinions and I like that. He’s not a doormat.
Cricket from Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins: I so would have gone for him in high school. He’s interesting and sweet and EFF YAH for truly nice guys in YA lit. He’s just adorable and I ship my fictional self and him.
Adam from If I Stay/Where She Went by Gayle Forman: These two books gave me the most complete picture of Adam and I really forgot he was fictional. He’s perfectly imperfect and I would go crazy for him to write me a song. One of the most longstanding book boyfriends I’ve ever had. MY HEART. OH MY HEART.
Mr. Darcy from Pride and Prejudice: Is this really a surprise? ALL OF THE SWOONS.
Perry AND Roar from Under the Never Sky by Veronica Rossi: Yes I want them both. SO WHAT!
Conrad and Jeremiah from The Summer I Turned Pretty series by Jenny Han: Ok, here’s the thing. I try to stay away from brothers. That gets sticky. Trust me. But these two brothers appeal to two different sides of me and if I could just combine them that would be AWESOME. I really need to finish this series!
Willem by Just One Day by Gayle Forman: I know a lot of people aren’t sold on Willem yet but I am (and this is not just because Gayle Forman told me that she would pick Willem over Adam!). I got this sense of something in him despite the sometimes cocky exterior and mystery. I love his sense of wonder and how carefree he is. I just know in Just One Year I am going to fall more in love with him and this crush will be full on LUUUURVE.
Marcus from the Jessica Darling series by Megan McCafferty: Oh Marcus. I still need to read book 4 & 5 but I have fallen in love with Marcus and his growth. Sometimes I want to punch him because of his boy shenanigans but others times he is the sweetest ever. YOU YES YOU.
So tell me…do you love any of my crushes or do you not understand any of mine?? Who are some of yours??
