7 of My Book Boyfriends.

Admit it. When you've been reading a book, you've fallen head over heels for a fictional character. Surely, I'm not the only one. It's amazing how authors tend to write these perfectly imperfect characters that are so easy to fall for. These are some characters that I fell in love with while reading. 

7. Clay Jensen
Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher
I know that Thirteen Reasons Why focuses on the story of Hannah, but I really adored Clay and the story that we got to hear from his perspective. I love that he just kind of developed this crush on a girl and watched (non-creepily) from afar until he finally had the courage to dive in. You can tell that he has a big heart, and what more could you want in a leading man? 

6. Xander 
Matched by Ally Condie
I'm so upset that Cassia (*spoiler alert*) didn't pick Xander. Seriously, he's perfect. They grew up together, and they knew everything about each other. He was willing to do anything for her, and she threw that away on a whim. Argh! But enough about Cassia's stupidity. I love that Xander was still loyal to Cassia even after she screwed him over. You can tell that he's willing to do anything for those that he loves and the things that he believes in. He joined the rebellion at a young age without a second thought because he stands by his beliefs and his choices. He's just overall a good guy in my opinion. 

5. Prince Maxon
The Selection by Kiera Cass
Aside from him being irrational and quick to jump to conclusions at times, Prince Maxon is as dreamy as you'd expect a prince to be. I wouldn't want to meet Maxon in the conditions of the books though. I don't think I could handle all that madness. If I wanted that, I would just hop on over to The Bachelor signups, but no thanks. Maxon is super intelligent and thoughtful, and he's willing to bend the rules a little bit to make people happy. Hello, Mr. Perfect.

4. Will Blakelee
The Last Song by Nicholas Sparks
We'll start with the obvious. He's obviously hott (two T's) with an athletic body, so that alone gets him an A++. Beyond that, he's pretty much perfection. He's clever and keeps people on their toes. He's sweet with a heart of gold. Everyone loves him. He's mysterious. Plus, he's secretly rich, and doesn't think he's better than people because of it. Bonus: He loves animals. I mean, come on! Of course this guy only exists in books.

3. Levi
Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell
What I love about Levi is that he is so imperfect. He's not the most attractive guy on campus, and he's not the most intelligent, but he likes what he likes, and he marches to the beat of his own drum. He's not afraid to express himself and his thoughts, and he doesn't worry about the opinions of others. Plus, he's funny. I think that's a must when it comes to fictional boyfriends. He just has a presence about him, and he can't walk into a room without you being aware of it. He's outgoing, and everyone loves him, including me.  

2. George Weasley
Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling
Some may go for Harry. Others may go for Ron. Some may even go for Neville, but not this girl. I always adored the twins. Fred and George were always hilarious and confident, and there was certainly never a dull moment with them. In addition to making everyone laugh, they also had big hearts. They were brave and willing to fight alongside Harry against the Dark Lord. They risked their lives for the greater good, and that's such a beautiful thing. Of course, I love both of the Weasley twins, but as morbid as it sounds, I did choose George over Fred because (*spoiler alert*) Fred doesn't survive in the end. Sad.

1. Augustus Waters
The Fault in Our Stars by John Green
It was impossible for me not to fall in love with Gus. He is seriously everything any girl would want in a guy. He's honest and says whatever is on his mind. He's passionate about living life, even though he knows that his days may be numbered. He is funny with a huge heart and is willing to go above and beyond for the people that he loves. Who wouldn't want that?

  1. Yes to alllll of this! I was always a sucker for the Weasley twins too (which makes me even more jealous that you met the actors!), and Gus.. oh Gus.

  2. One of my pals in grad school had a whole series of boyfriends, her sports boyfriend, her book boyfriends, her TV boyfriends... it's a good system! :)

  3. love it! Definitely LOVE Fred and George. I was never into Harry. I always felt like I was a mix up of Harry/Hermione in terms of personality so it would be weird to attracted to myself haha, but I always thought F&G were super funny, witty, and clever without needing academic recognition. I definitely admire that kind of confidence. As for the others, I haven't read them. I know I had a big crush on every guy in the Daughters of the Moon series, Will AND James from Infernal Devices.

  6. I loved Harry in the sense that I wanted to be his best friends, but romantically? His tastes were questionable, I mean Ginny over Hermione? Come on. Fred and George were so easy to love. I haven't read any of the books you mentioned! I'll have to check them out so I can fall in love too.

  7. That's so awesome! I need to come up with a system like that too! I suppose this list is a start.

  8. Gus. Anyone who didn't fall in love with Gus just isn't human. And yes, the Weasleys. I think meeting them made me fall more in love.

  9. I can't believe I've never thought about this before!

  10. Haha I always just thought he was a bit too self-absorbed. F&G are def easy to love. Definitely check out some of the books, esp if you like fantasy! Let me know how you like them if you do :)

    ReplyDelete
  11. Oh gosh, I think about it every time I read a book it seems like!

    ReplyDelete
  12. I can definitely see the self-absorbed in some aspects, particularly when he was younger, but he definitely grew into his own.

  14. I won't lie to you: Ron Weasley is my man, forever and always. However, one of my first book boyfriend's was Kartik from the Gemma Doyle series by Libba Bray. He was brave and mysterious and his love was in.tense.

    ReplyDelete
  15. I'm sure that's true for a lot of girls!

    ReplyDelete
  16. I do love Ron in a different way than I love his twin brothers. I didn't fall in love with Kartik in the first book of the Gemma Doyle series, but I do want to finish it, and maybe I'll fall for him too.

  17. OH MY GOD YOU HAVEN'T FINISHED THEM????


    Just.you.wait. And then call me. No. We'll meet in the middle and talk about all the emotions you're feeling.

  18. I haven't read the Fault In Your Stars but I did watch the movie and cried like a baby but i do love him. OMG!! Thirteen Reasons Why is one of my favorite books. I never thought I'd have a crush on Clay though. I think I would say I have a major crush on Peeta from the Hunger Games. Just he's a sweetheart, like accepting that the girl you love might love someone else beside you but the fact that you'd still be there for her says a lot. :) This is such a cute series Tiffany. I love it.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Oooh! I definitely had a crush on Peeta! I couldn't help but love him. There was some frustration during Mockingjay, but he pulled through.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Haha yes!! I definitely need to get on that ASAP!

  21. I loveeee Four from Divergent!

    ReplyDelete
  22. Omg yes to all of these, especially Augustus! So so soooo good.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Uhhhh!!! I love love love this!! I was literally thinking and talking about this very thing with a friend two days ago!! I want Augustus Waters!!!

  24. This post is amazeballs. I am a secret George fan myself! I like the quiet off the beaten path types!

  25. Awwww book boyfriends are REAL!! found you from the linkup. I've read/know some of these characters and others are on my to read list!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Some of my past book crushes: Sam from LOTR, Ron Weasley (and also Charlie, I think? The dragon one), Gilbert Blythe (dating myself on this one, I know), and more recently, the husband in Landline (I forget his name). I tend to like the boys that spend a long time pining after their chosen paramour. :-) Thanks for linking up to Quote Me Thursday!

  27. Yessss! As well as Theo James did as Four, I pictured him different in my head, but I just have to separate the movie and the book. I have a hard time with that sometimes. But Four in both the book and the movie were pretty dreamy.

  28. Augustus. I could go on for days about my love for him.

    ReplyDelete
  29. That's so funny! Augustus Waters is the perfect fictional character. If only he wasn't fictional!

    ReplyDelete
  30. The quiet, off the beaten path boys are the mysterious ones, which makes them more attractive. There's always so much more to their story.

    ReplyDelete
  31. They really are! Happy you found me through the linkup! I'll have to go checkout your link too!

    ReplyDelete
  32. I wish Charlie was in the books more! I loved him too. I like the characters that spend time pining too. I love seeing the growth of their relationships.

    ReplyDelete
  33. This is such a good idea! I know I always had a bunch of book boyfriends growing up! And a lot more from the mangas that I read!

  34. I'm glad you understand where I'm coming from!
