Top Ten Tuesday: Ten Books With Characters Who Are My Imaginary Book Boyfriends




Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.


This week's Top Ten topic is "Top Ten Books that Feature Characters Who ______ ". My initial thought about this was...OH CRAP! I have trouble thinking of topics when I'm left to do it on my own. Case in point, when we were prompted with "Top Ten Books for Readers Who Like ______ ", I chose to fill that blank with... "Blue Covers". I panicked. It turned out ok, SEE. Anyway, I've been worried about this all week and at 11:00 pm on Monday night I still had no idea what my topic would be. Then I suddenly had an epiphany! I've never done a "Book Boyfriend" post! Huzzah!! So, I figured I should let you all know who belongs to me. Some are from recent reads, others are long-time book crushes. 

(Oh, and just in case he sees this, a note to my real boyfriend: Sean, you're still #1 in MY book!)



BACK OFF! These guys are MINE!!



Jace Herondale
from The Mortal Instruments series 
by Cassandra Clare


Sorry, but I guarantee that I saw Jace first.



Jem Carstairs
from The Infernal Devices (& The Mortal Instruments)
by Cassandra Clare




Roar 
from the Under the Never Sky series 
by Veronica Rossi 



Prince Maxon Schreave
from The Selection series
by Kiera Cass



Tarver Merendsen
from These Broken Stars (Starbound series)
by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner



Turk
from the Mystic City series 
by Theo Lawrence


Turk doesn't show his complete awesomeness until Toxic Heart (book #2). That's when I fell in love.


Bishop Lattimer
from The Book of Ivy
by Amy Engel



Nikolai Lantsov/Sturmhond
from The Grisha trilogy
by Leigh Bardugo


He only appears in books 2 & 3.


"Black Knife"
from The Orphan Queen
by Jodi Meadows



Po
from Graceling
by Kristin Cashore



I could easily keep going, but I only get ten this time.

Do you have any book boyfriends/girlfriends?

What was your Top Ten Topic?

  1. Nice choice for a list. I'm about to start the mortal instruments series too.
    I chose vampires for mine but it took me a while to think of something that I could make a list out of.
    Happy Tuesday!

  3. Sadly, Jace and Jem are the only two hotties from your list that I have met. I might need to change that.

  8. Oh wow! You've taken some of the best of the bunch. That's a bit unfair to the rest of us, huh? ;)

    My Top Ten Tuesday was nearly identical to the Broke and the Bookish's list but I made it my own, yeah?

  10. I don't think I've ever really thought about book boyfriends though I see it on blogs everywhere. I like a lot of guys in my books-maybe a list is long overdue...

  11. I loooooove so many of these! Tarver! Black Knife! Roar! Great list! I love swooning over book boyfriends. My book boyfriends are Chaol from Throne of Glass and Hector from The Girl of Fire and Thorn series.

  12. What a great topic. I haven't really read any of these, although I have heard enough about Jace to understand why he made the list. I do own several of these books, just haven't gotten around to reading them. I picked up The Book of Ivy when it was released and it still sits in my Kindle untouched. Thank for "sharing" your boyfriends.

    1. You have to read The Book of Ivy, it's fantastic!

  13. Awesome list! So glad that you included Roar and Bishop! Not nearly enough people have read The Book Of Ivy, and Bishop is literally the best guy ever. Also, Roar is amazing and I LOVE him! (kind of ironic, since my name is Olivia)

    1. Oh, you may have more of a claim om Roar than me ;) I am a Book of Ivy PUSHER! It deserved so much more attention!

  14. Book Boyfriends!!! I could have a list a mile long! I see what you mean when you said you could have Kent from Before I Fall on here. I could definitely see him making my list too. I want to read Under the Never Sky one of these days. I finally read The Hunger Games, so maybe I'll get there soon.

    Thanks for stopping by my list!

  15. Nice topic! It's nice to see some of the same books/series but for a totally different reasoning! :) I should probably get on those Cassie Clare books, huh?

    Thanks for stopping by my list!

  16. You can have Jem, I always wanted Will but there's no way you can take Maxon AND Tarver. I mean, that's just plainly mean and terribly of you. :DD Awesome list BTW. :)

    1. This list does make me feel a bit selfish ;)

  17. I LOVE this topic^^ GREAT choice! But man, except for Jace (agree btw) I have yet to meet any of these awesome boys! I still need to read TMI, UtNS, These Broken Stars, The Grisha Series, Orphan Queen and Graceling. *sobs* BUT I do own the first book in all of these series so I have no excuse. I WILL read them though and seeing how there are boys to swoon over, I'll have to get to them soon XD

    Thanks for stopping by earlier ♥

  23. You picked an awesome topic for this week. Jace is the bad boy type that every girl secretly longs for and Jem is the ultimate catch! Thanks for stopping by my blog earlier!

  25. Thank you for letting me keep my book boyfriend for myself ;) Peeta is always my book boyfriend, and he always will be. That said... I love a lot of the ones on your list! Roar! Definitely Roar. And Nikolai for sure! And BISHOP! I adore him! This list is fabulous, I LOVE your choice in topic this week! Next time we get a freebie like this, I am stealing your idea (and giving credit to you, of course ;) )
