Top Ten Tuesday: Book Boyfriends


Happy Tuesday and welcome back to Top Ten Tuesday, a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish!  This week's topic is Book Boyfriends/ Girlfriends (Which characters do you have crushes on?)  I've always been terrible at this, but below are some of my favorite fictional guys!  Here we go, in order by character name.


Aragorn - The Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien


Atticus Finch - To Kill A Mockingbird by Lee Harper


Atticus O'Sullivan - The Iron Druid Chronicles by Kevin Hearne




Jem Carstairs - The Infernal Devices by Cassandra Clare




Peeta Mellark - The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins


Reid - The Upside of Unrequited by Becky Albertalli



Richard Campbell Gansey III - The Raven Cycle by Maggie Stiefvater


Ron Weasley - Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling


Westley - The Princess Bride by William Goldman

Are these some of you favorites, too?  Thanks as always for visiting my blog and perhaps even commenting down below!

  1. I know 8/10 of these, and can understand why you picked them. Gansey is one of my faves. He had so many good qualities, but he was a little obsessive. So, you would have to be willing to put up with that. Atticus Finch is an amazing, southern gentleman with such a spirit for justice. He was not perfect, but he saw his mistakes and faced them head on, which is a great quality in a man. Jem, gentle, lovable Jem. He did have many fine qualities, but I wonder if my heart felt more for him out of sympathy or if it was real. Reid was the nerdy, sweet, cute guy I couldn't help but love. Lots of quality picks here.

  2. I love that pic of Aragorn. What great choices (as always!) I do like the look of Hounded, which is totally new to me.

    Hope you are having a great week, Lauren.

  5. YES! I don't feel like Ron gets enough credit (especially after the movies did him so wrong), but he's always been my favorite.

    Oooh... and Westley! Best hero ever. :D

  7. Yes, I`m so happy to see Jem on your list, as most people prefer Will/Jace. And Peeta is such an amazing character, probably my number one pick.
