Top Ten Tuesday is a fun meme that was created over at The Broke and the Bookish! I really struggled with this weeks topic because I am not someone who swoons over book characters very often! I did some thinking and came up with characters who I think would make great partners!
Mr. Darcy (Pride and Prejudice)
This is my one exception! If you have been reading my blog for awhile than you will know I am one of those people who adores Mr. Darcy! I recognize that he is flawed, and was definitely not always perfect, but that is what I appreciate about him. He is a realistic character, who at his core is a good human being. I mean I would love to have someone tell me that I bewitched them body and soul!
Neville Longbottom (Harry Potter)
I love quirky characters, and there is something so sweet and charming about Neville. Of all of the characters in Harry Potter, I think Neville would be the best boyfriend. It also doesn’t hurt that the actor who played Neville grew up to be quite attractive. If he appeals to you than I found this quiz to see if Neville would date you! My results- “Of course, Neville would date you! You’re kind, you’re intelligent and he knows you’re not in it for the fame. You’ve always got his best interests at heart!”
Darrow (Red Rising)
I have only read the first book in this series but I already really like Darrow! He is a brave leader, but also appears to be humble. I find that to be very attractive. He also appears to have strong morals. I can not wait to see how he develops as the series progresses!
Peter Kavinsky (All The Boys I’ve Loved Before)
There is something about Peter as a character that appeals to me! I think it is because I appreciate his sense of humour. He can also be very sweet and romantic. He is exactly the kind of guy I would have wanted to date when I was in high school.
Gale (The Hunger Games)
I am and always will be team Gale. He is obviously very loyal, and will sacrifice his own happiness if it means the person he loves is happy. I mean he volunteers to help rescue Peeta! I would also love if he gave me a cute nickname!
Thomas Cresswell (Stalking Jack the Ripper)
I am a sucker for a guy that is both charming yet mysterious! I love that Thomas is intelligent and sarcastic, but does not hide how he feels about Audrey Rose. Thomas is definitely my most recent “book boyfriend” and I can not wait to read Hunting Prince Dracula.
Well I could only come up with six, but that is more than I was expecting! Usually I can not see passed Mr. Darcy and book boyfriends are not something I think about. I am sure I have forgotten a few that I really enjoy but these six are definitely my current favourites! I can not wait to hear who your favourite book boyfriends/girlfriends are!

I was so in love with Gale when I was reading the Hunger Games!
Me too! 😊
I’m in love with Jem Carstairs from Infernal Devices 😀
I haven’t read this series but I know a lot of people love Wil! I wonder which side I would fall on!
I love them both but I feel Jem is so underrated and everyone loves Will more because of his sassiness. I highly recommend you give it a try!
I loved Mr. Darcy, Gale and Darrow! Great ones!
Thank you! They are great!
Aww Neville! He is so adorable ❤
I would love it if you could check out our list of fictional crushes over at our blog 😀
He really is!
I definitely will!
I’m struggling a bit with this week’s TTT topic too. Still haven’t written anything.
I have to admit I was always team Peeta when it came to the Hunger Games. He always seems so alone and had a horrible family but was somehow always kind.
Gale was a little too focused on the cause and too angry. Also partly responsible for Prim.
Yeah it was hard for me for some reason!
I like Peeta as well! I guess just more as a friend than a love interest?
I can totally get that. I did always feel when they got together at the end there was a bit of settling going on rather than big romance.
I am in love with Han from the Demon King. When I was younger I would have said Percy Jackson 100%, something about those rebel male characters that just works!
I haven’t read the Demon King! I totally should. I love rebel characters as well.
you should read it! It is an amazing series
Gale isn’t one of my fave characters and he’s not one of my “book boyfriends” but I was team Gale, too! 🙂
I love finding people who are also Team Gale!
I so loved Gale that I instantly saw Peeta as third person. Wasn’t Peeta little rude and selfish in third book? And I didn’t like all the blame about Prim went on Gale at the end. If I could change things in the whole series it will be that. 🙂
I totally agree with you. The ending was so unfair to Gale’s character!
Literally cannot resist Mr Darcy although I think in terms of compatibility I would fit better with Mr Bingley (who for the record, I definitely wouldn’t mind dating either!) 😂😂
Mr Bingley would be an amazing choice. I adore him as well. So sweet!
Great list, I also love Neville and Mr Darcy.
Thank you! My two favourites!
Your welcome ☺
Hmm, I’m mildly surprised by all the love for Gale. I’m not Team Either by any stretch, but I always found Peeta more relatable, in no small part because Gale doesn’t even appear for most of the first two books! I thought the movies did a better job of selling Gale, though for me, Josh Hutcherson > Liam Hemsworth.
I definitely like Josh more than Liam as well! I just connected more with Gale in the books. I still like Peeta but if I had to choose I would go for Gale.
Neville is such an adorable character! He definitely deserves more love than he gets! I think I’m more Team Peeta than Team Gale, but I do have a soft spot for both of them… I am yet to read All The Boys I’ve Loved before, but do want to get to it soon! great list, here’s my TTT: https://bookmuffin.wordpress.com/2017/10/03/dont-judge-me-im-love-with-fictional-characters/
Neville is the best! I am glad so many people are agreeing with me!
I totally understand why people are team Peeta! I see the appeal of both sides!
You have to read it! Such a cute series!
PETER KAVINSKY IS MY ULTIMATE BOOK BOYFRIEND. I may never fall in love with someone as much as I love him. Although I can’t quite say the same for Gale… I’m team Peeta all the way.
I do not blame you! Peter is such a sweet and charming character!
I love that there is such a divide between team Peeta and team Gale! I see the appeal of both sides!
Hahah everyone has such strong opinions. I see the appeal of both sides but.. I like mine better 😜
Neville <3 I've still not read the Potter books but I must admit I do have a soft spot for him. He's just such a sweetheart. Darrow is another one of my book boyfriends, I just love that guy.
Neville is so sweet!
I am glad you agree about Darrow! Can’t wait to finish that series.
Yes Darcy is and will forever be on my list of favorite guys as well!
Yes! I love hearing that 😝
Coming up with book boyfriends/girlfriends is so hard; there are so many potentials out there.
It is hard! I am seeing other people’s lists and thinking ugh why didn’t I think of him!!
It’s because we readers have so many book boyfriends. We can’t narrow down the list.
hell yeah darcy and neville!!! but i am ASTOUNDED at gale!
Yes they are my two favourites! So many mixed opinions on Gale!
Phew! Lucky for you you picked that Darcy, and not MY Darcy (aka Colin Firth). I’d have had to challenge you to a duel if you had… 😉
Hahaha! This is my favourite Darcy so that works out nicely 😝
funny enough, i was never team gale or team peeta! 😀 i was always team finnick hahaha.
darrow is a great choice!!! 🙂
Oh I don’t blame you for being team Finnick!!
<3 <3 <3
(thank you 😀 )
Neville’s Longbottom’s glow up was real. Great List. Darrow was interesting as well. Check my Top Ten Tuesday out at Amethyst Blue
I still can’t believe how handsome he is! Way to go Neville!
Ooh yes to Darcy! And I hope you enjoy the rest of the red rising series, it’s so good!!
Darcy is the bomb!
I will definitely be reading Golden Son either this month or next! Can’t wait!
Yes for sure!! Oh brilliant- hope you love it!
Holy Shit! I forgot to add Mr.Darcy to my list! I suck! He is wonderful, isn’t he? lol Great list!
Hahaha! He is the best!
