Top Ten Book Boyfriends

5:43 PM

In no particular order :)

1. Tobias from Divergent

strong, sweet

“I have something I need to tell you," he says. I run my fingers along the tendons in his hands and look back at him. "I might be in love with you." He smiles a little. "I'm waiting until I'm sure to tell you, though."

2. Etienne from Anna and the French Kiss

british, cute, listener

“I trail my fingers across his cheek. He stays perfectly still for me. “Please stop apologizing, Étienne.”
“Say my name again,” he whispers.
I close my eyes and lean forward. “Étienne.”
He takes my hands into his.Those perfect hands, that fit mine just so. “Anna?”
Our foreheads touch. “Yes?”
“Will you please tell me you love me? I’m dying here.”
And then we’re laughing. And then I’m in his arms, and we’re kissing.

3. Adrian from Vampire Academy 

willing to make sacrifices, hot

"My God, Sage. Your eyes. How have I never noticed them?"
That uncomfortable feeling was spreading over again. "What about them?"
"The color," he breathed. "When you stand in the light. They're molten gold. I could paint those..." He reached toward me but then pulled back. "They're beautiful. You're beautiful."

4. Jeremiah from The Summer I Turned Pretty

great friend, listener, loyal

“And then there was Jeremiah. When I looked at Jeremiah, I saw past, present, and future. He didn’t just know the girl I used to be. He knew the right-now me, and he loved me anyway.”

5. Ryan from Dare You To

patient, doesn't give up, believer

“I hold the bottle out into the rain and watch as the steady flow slowly fills it. When there is enough, enough that Beth can clearly see, I close the bottle and hand it to her.
She raises a skeptical eyebrow, but accepts the bottle.
"It's our rain Beth."
Her head barely shakes to show her confusion while I rub the back of my neck and search for my courage. "I told you I loved you in this rain and when you doubt my words, I want you to look at this bottle.” 

6. Oliver from Statistical

british, cute, funny, entertaining

“What are you really studying?"
He leans back to look at her. "The statistical probability of love at first sight."
"Very funny," she says. "What is it really?"
"I'm serious."
"I don't believe you."
He laughs, then lowers his mouth so that it's close to her ear. "People who meet in airports are seventy-two percent more likely too fall for each other than people who meet anywhere else.” 

7. Prince Maxon from The Selection

listener, caring, understanding

“If you don’t want me to be in love with you, you’re going to have to stop looking so lovely. First thing tomorrow I’m having your maids sew some potato sacks together for you.”

8. Peeta from The Hunger Games

loyal, lover, cute

So after, when he whispers, "You love me. Real or not real?" I tell him, "Real.”

9. Marcus from Sea Breeze

listener, great friend, loyal, amazing

“I don’t think I’m making myself very clear Low,” he’d lowered his voice and the effect made goose bumps break out over my body. “I was only interested in one person at that bar last night. I only came to see one person,” he tucked a strand of hair behind my ear and softly caressed my earlobe before tracing the line of my jaw. “I was there for you.”

10. Will from Slammed

willing to make sacrifices, selfless, listener, amazing

“This thing about you that you think is your flaw - it's the reason I'm falling in love with you.”

Just helping spread the word:)

  2. Oliver's totally adorable! Can't go wrong with a British accent, amirite?

  3. So many on your list made my original list. I had 25 originally, but had to cut it down. It was so hard! Love Oliver, Love St. Clair, love them all!

  4. Yep. I have Four and St. Clair on my list as well. Great list!

    Here's mine: Top Ten Tuesday

  5. I've only heard of Peeta since I don't read much YA. Looks good though!

    Tsuki @ Tsuki's Books

  6. I love your list! Adrian and Etienne both almost made my list, too! Also Will from Slammed? Totally swoon worthy!

    My TTT

    Eva @ All Books Considered

  7. Okay, OKAY! I will rad Anna and the French Kiss!! I CAN'T GET AWAY FROM THIS BOOK!! I keep thinking it isn't my "type" but I think I have been convinced by that quote!!

    Also I have to admit this....I liked the Hunger Games...I didn't love them...but when he said "real or not real" I BAWLED and hugged my book and it really was right then that I realized that I loved him too.

  8. onmygods ADRIAN! I almost cried when I saw his name on your list. (He's on mine, too.) The short teaser's a great idea! I love love love Tobias and Adrian!

    Julie @ Books and Insomnia

  9. And in one fell swoop, you have convinced me to read "Anna and the French Kiss" and "The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight".

    Well done. *applauds*

    Thanks for visiting my Top Ten ;)

  10. Great list! I love Adrian, Oliver, Four and Will. I can't wait to read Dare You To. Thanks for stopping by my list.

  11. *breathes in the essence of Peeta's awesomeness, quotability & bread before taking him away... cruelly*
    Oh... I have seen him as #8 in loads of lists & I haven't seen Gale at all... I'd wonder if something was wrong but hey, I don't have to fight for Peeta. Or Gale, if I wanted to settle for him. But I don't really... I love your picks & hope we can 'share' Peeta. By sharing I mean you can have him on this list but the boy is mine ;) Who wants Gale?

  12. The only one I know is Peeta! I've got to catch up.

  13. Sheesh, I haven't read a single one of these... and your use of quotes has given me some idea of what I'm missing. Seriously, now I have GOT to read The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight. And possibly The Selection and Slammed as well.

    By the way, I think I've mentioned this before, but I love your blog title!

  14. I really need to read Anna and the French Kiss and Vampire Academy. I've heard so many excellent things about them. Thanks for stopping by!

  15. Good list, except for Peeta. hahaha Sorry, I'm a Gale kinda girl. I NEEEED to read Anna and the French Kiss. OBVIOUSLY! :)

  16. I love that you put the quotes after each one and the qualities you like. Tobias and Entienne are amazing. *Sigh*


    I love this week's TTT lol.

  18. Oh Will made my list too! Four and Adrian almost made my list, but I had to cut it somewhere lol. Thanks for stopping by my TTT

    Teresa @ Readers Live A Thousand Lives

  20. EXCELLENT choices, particularly Tobias, Etienne, and Peeta :)

  21. I have some really bad news for you! I might steal you all these boys xP What can I do when they're so cool :)
    Thanks for stopping by :)

  22. I only read Hunger Games and Vampire Academy from your list, and e are on the same team there. :)
    The rest of the books are still on my tbr... I hope I will read them soon. You can never have enough book crushes...
    Thanks for stopping by my TTT.
    Dragana @ Bookworm Dreams

  23. Great list! I've only read three of your books, but I agree -- Etienne, Oliver, and Peeta are all a bunch of sweeties!


  24. OH MY GOD I FORGOT ABOUT OLIVER! How could I forget him?! But other than Oliver, yes to Peeta, St. Clair & Maxon! All amazing guys! :)

  25. This is a great list! I love the set-up of their defining characteristics being right under their names.

  26. Yay, Team Peeta! And yes to Etienne and Oliver too. Love them British dudes. :D

  27. Love that you included those quotes! I liked Ryan in Dare You To, but I still liked Noah a tad bit better.


Hi guys! Thanks for taking your time to read through my post and comment on this blog. I appreciate each and every one of your comments, though I might not respond immediately to them. Also, if you're commenting on a meme, I would prefer replying on your meme post rather than here on my blog. :)
