Welcome to another week of Top Ten Tuesday, a bookish meme hosted by the lovely Broke and the Bookish! Each week bloggers are given a topic and forced against their will (not really) to create their own top ten list on that topic.
This weeks TTT is Book Boyfriends!! I know book bloggers are jumping on this hOt list. It makes me feel a little torn. I don’t want to leave anyone off the list! There are some guys who are “boys of the moment”. You know, the kind you wouldn’t mind having but they don’t really stick with you. This list is my personal list of book boyfriends I can’t help but keep returning to!
As always your comments are welcome, as are your additions to the list or links to your own TTT!
Valek and Janco- The Study Series by Maria V. Snyder
I love, love, loved this series! Valek is the very dashing assassin main character. Janco is a prankster who probably has a bad case of ADHD- not good if you’re a spy.
Shane (and maybe Myrnin?) – The Morganville Vampires by Rachel Caine
Shane is hotness, and sweetness, all over the place. He does have a bit of a temper problem, but it’s always directed at the right people; just not at the most opportune moment. Myrnin is a bit insane, but hey, any vampire who wears Monty Python fanged bunny slippers and is upset about his pet spider- yet still acts like a gentleman- is good in my books!
Tobias- Animorphs by K.A. Applegate
This is a THROWBACK, but Tobias one of my Jr. High book boyfriends that I never let go of. He was quiet and a loner, thrown into the mass chaos of a secret alien invasion. *sighhhh* I’m sure I was all about the dark, brooding boys those days.
Harvey- Kieli by Yukako Kabei
Kieli is a light novel released in the US by TokyoPop (also has its own manga). Harvey was created as an undying soldier during a war, and now that everything is at ‘peace’ his kind are being hunted and eliminated. He’s quiet and distant, but also fiercely protective.
Fred Weasley- Harry Potter series by J. K. Rowling
Fred was always a little more mischievous and a little more outgoing to me. Even while fighting deadly forces he still had a smart remark on hand. Always have a guy with with a good since of humor on hand! <3
D’Artanian- The Three Musketeers by Alexandre Dumas
D’Artanian is known as the ‘fourth’ musketeer. He’s young and hotheaded, but very skilled which gets him quickly promoted to lieutenant of the Musketeers. He’s also a romantic, and the first book boyfriend I can remember having! Hands off!
Tobias/Four- Divergent by Veronica Roth
*swoon!* Four. Tobias. You had me at hello. Even though he likes to throw knives at people he has crushes on, that’s alright.
