TTT- Book Boyfriends

TopTen Tuesday (1)

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!

  1. 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.

  2. 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. 🙂

  3. 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!) 😂😂

  4. 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.

  5. 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.
