Top Ten Book Boyfriends (17)

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by The Broke and the Bookish
I've already done a discussion post on Book Boyfriends back just after Valentine's Day. But, y'know, I love my book boyfriends, so I'll give it another go with some help from my old list and Chris Evans.

Me too, attractive man who plays all the superheroes. Me too.
1. Remus Lupin from Harry Potter  by J.K. Rowling
Remus is actually my Book Husband, as previously mentioned. He's clever, loyal, composed AND mischievous - among other things. And he's all of the adorable. I just want to huggles him forever. Please excuse me while my brain makes that a reality. *sigh*

2. Mal from Shadow & Bone by Leigh Bardugo
He's the wonderful best friend. Who doesn't want the wonderful best friend (who's actually good looking) to actually return his best friends feelings? I mean, there are so many YA books with that premise and it's not because it's a BAD premise (although it might not actually happen so much in real life).

3. Jesse from The Mediator Series by Meg Cabot
*swoons* Jesse. Oh Jesse. Sweep me off my feet as a ghost or a human, I don't even care. *swoons again* He's just so wonderful. And caring. And sweet. And idiotic the best of boyish ways.

4. Owen from Just Listen by Sarah Dessen
He's the strong stoic time I just want to curl up next to. And he's got some great tunes, which I like.

5. Peeta from The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
GUYS. HE BAKES. I WANT A MAN WHO CAN BAKE. Please. And who loves me as much as Peeta loves Katniss. Sometimes I just want to punch that girl in the face for not understanding how awesome Peeta is until it's TOO LATE.

6. Duncan from Welcome, Caller, This is Chloe by Shelley Coriell
*sigh* Duncan. I just want to scoop him up and snuggle him forever. He's just so sweet and who doesn't love a Mr. Fix-It (even if he is a little broken himself).

7. Graham Larkin from This is What Happy Looks Like by Jennifer E. Smith
HE HAS A PIG NAMED WILBUR. I don't understand why I would need any other reason to love him. I mean, he's also really thoughtful and  knows how to make a girl happy, but mostly it's the pig. Named WILBUR. Please. Let's all just re-read Charlotte's Web and call this adorable.

8. Kenji from Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi
Adam, Warner - WHO CARES. I mean, no, I like them, but I would never date either of them. But I would snuggle up to Kenji. I would also be cool with just being friends. What's I'm SAYING is: I LOVE KENJI. I just want him in my life, y'know? I think I'd be a better person for t.

9. Jase from My Life Next Door by Huntley Fitzpatrick
DEAR GOD IS THAT BOY SOMETHING. Please I would like to have one of him for myself. He's just so sweet and caring and loving. And you can see that in the way he behaves with Samantha but also in the way he behaves with his family, which I REALLY LIKE.

10. Len from When You Were Mine by Rebecca Serle
He's that kid who was always kind of strange and then grew up to be kind of strange and maybe a little bit mean but really there's a lot more there, y'know? You just have to get out of your head for three seconds and see it. Because it's there. And he is QUITE lovely.

I don't know if you guys can tell, but MOSTLY I'm into the slightly more quiet type who's just wonderful once you really get to know them. It's one of those yin-yang things. I'm loud and boisterous and excitable and I could use someone a little more level-headed to keep me from shenanigans. Not that I get myself into trouble, per-say, but, well, I can. Sometimes.

Oh. And before you go:

*Sigh* Channing. Some people think your face is weird. I do not.
ANYWAY. I love a good book boyfriend, so be sure to tell me who YOU'RE making googly eyes at this week. And if you like some of the same ones as me... well... tough luck they're MIIIIINE. At least in my head they are. So shhhh.

  4. I had Peeta too - for much the same reason. I love how much he loves Katniss, how he's always working to keep her safe, and the way that he's... just... genuinely good. But not in a lame, limp sort of way. Selfless. *sighs* I'm afraid we're going to have to share. :-P
    And OMG - how on EARTH did I forget about Jase? Sexy boy who is great with little kids and who loves his family and who respects women and... *Loud thunk as I hit the floor in a dead swoon*
    *picks self back up to carry on talking*
    Aww, Kenji - he's an awesome character, and makes me laugh, and is pretty adorable with James, but I'd rather have Warner. Even though he IS kind of crazy-intense. And, you know, just plain crazy. But there's just something so fascinating about him.
    My favourite Dessen-boy will always be Wes. Artistic tattooed reformed bad-boy for the win. But I do love watching Owen draw out Annabel's brutally honest, opinionated side across the book. :-) Also, how many guys do you know who would see a girl throw up TWICE at school and still think she's beautiful? Owen should get about a million stars for that.

    1. Owen gets A TRILLION stars. I love him. So much.

      As for Warner, I adore him, but he's so crazypants I can't even handle it. I would not want to date him. I'll take someone just a little bit less angry, y'know?

    1. And I love that you love Len!! I feel like a lot of people didn't like that book/that it's not as well known. But Len is great. Definitely read the others, though!

  8. Haha yes! I want a man who bakes too! And who cooks. And cleans. And gives me foot massages. I think Peeta can handle all that, right?! lol Great list ;)

    1. We can share... uhm... maybe? Probably not. So I think I'll keep Peeta. >.<

  10. Huggles - best new word EVER! This list is just wonderful. I definitely want to add a few of these to my own list! While I do love the obvious boys that we all swoon over, sometimes it's the quiet, not so in your face ones that do it more for me!

    Oh, and Peeta!!!!! We all know my intense love of him! :)

    1. It's pretty much always the quiet, not to in your face ones that do it for me. Now if only I could find one of those in real life... they're elusive. Because they're quiet. And not so in your face...

  13. Awwwww, JASE. He was so so sweet and good and SWOON-Y. VERY SWOON-Y. I loved that he was just a good guy. YA needs more of those.

    And Mal. Gah, Mal. Gale Hawthorne would be my book husband, but Mal is like my ultimate book boyfriend. <3

    1. Ah Jase. He's made of swoons, I tell you. I love a good guy. Especially when he's HOT.

  14. Ohmigosh! Jesse is always forgotten- I even forget him myself! I really loved The Mediator series and loved Jesse and so I love that you included him. Apart from The Hunger Games, I haven't read any of the other books so am not sure if I agree but they're all books that I really want to read. Great choices! :)

    1. JESSE SHOULD NEVER BE FORGOTTEN. EVER. But also read the rest and love them also. NOT so much that you steal them from me, but you know.

  15. I love Jase. He's definitely the kind of boy that I could see myself dating/falling in love with/marrying, as he's just got that wonderful boy-next-door vibe. Plus, his family is all kinds of awesome!

    And then there's Kenji. Kenji is just kick-ass in Unravel Me, seriously. I LOVE HIM. I want him to take over the series and just show everyone that HE is AWESOME. Because he truly is.

    1. Jase is *sigh* wonderful. And well we both know how much the other love Kenji, so there's that ;)

  16. Yessss finally a list that doesn't make me feel all alone in my love! I Love Jase and Owen and Kenji and Mal. Kenji is just made of so much awesome and totally runs the show in Unravel Me.

    1. KENJI DOES RUN THE SHOW. But I'm glad I can make you feel less alone in your love <3

  17. Great choices! I couldn't agree more about stupid Katniss not realizing about Peeta. Who was she waiting for? Gale? Bleh.

    1. Boooo Gale. Seriously. SERIOUSLY. More Peeta. *starts protest*

  18. First off, I personally think that Channing Tatum is one of the most amazing men in Hollywood. Mostly because it's not all perfected. The freckles on the shoulders? Mmm. Anyways, I love your list. And I love visiting your blog cause you always make me laugh!

  20. DUDE. You could have totally picked one more guy, since Remus is already your HUSBAND. Totally random comment but oh wellll. However, I love Mal a whole lot. And Kenji, who is more awesome than everyone in Shatter Me and Unravel me combined. And I like Peeta. He's more than welcome to bake for me ;) And most of all: Jase. CAN I HAS HIM PLEASE? I'll take his entire family too! (Oh, Channing Tatum, how I love you <3)

    1. Okay. I hear your logic. But I could never not list the loveliest of the lovelies. Just like I couldn't not list Mal and Kenji and Peeta and Jase. AND CHANNING TATUM. Oh wait. I didn't list him. But his pretty face is there. <3

  21. It's good you put Peeta and Jesse on this list or I may have had to yell at you! You know I love Jesse and just finished all three of the Hunger Games and saw the movie and am now madly in love with Peeta. Sorry to my husband :D)))

    1. OF COURSE they are on this list. What else would I do with my time if they weren't? And SORRY TO YONI indeed, missy!!
