Top Ten Characters I Would Crush On If I Were Also A Fictional Character

hosted by The Broke and Bookish

Otherwise known as me interpreting the word "ten" very loosely

This an impossibly challenge for me. When I read any romance, it's practically a requirement for me to fall in love with the love interest. To me that's the sign of a great bookish relationship. You feel all the swoony, fluttery feels the protagonist feels. Your heart quickens just like the protagonist's does whenever he or she returns to the page. You feel the need to jump in the ocean reach for the cold water when the characters start kissing.

So I plan to choose book boys basically at random, and I won't repeat myself by listing any of the guys I talked about here or here. Actually... psych. I'm repeating myself. DEAL WITH IT.

Mr. Darcy from Pride and Prejudice
Le duh.


Peeta Mellark and Finnick Odair from The Hunger Games

Etienne St. Clair from Anna and the French Kiss
Mais bien sur!

Thorne from Scarlet
 I know. You think I'd list Kai or Wolf, who are the actual love interests for Cinder and Scarlet respectively. I seriously considered it, because swoon. But I am completely obsessed with Thorne. He is so arrogant and confident and funny and annoying, and sure, non of that sounds appealing, but IT IS. He appeals to me greatly.

Wolf from Scarlet
Why the hell not.

Hector from The Crown of Embers

 Four from Divergent and Insurgent

Rhett Butler from Gone With the Wind

Warner and Kenji from Shatter Me/Destroy Me


Sydney Carton from A Tale of Two Cities

Mr. Knightly from Emma, Mr. Tilney from Northanger Abbey, and Captain Wentworth from Persuasion


Po from Graceling

Adam from If I Stay

Wesley from The Duff

Valek from Poison Study

Mal and the Darkling from Shadow and Bone
Must I choose? No. I must not choose. So I shan't.

Chaol from Throne of Glass
Well, I chose here. I'd be willing to go up against any number assassins for the wonderful Captain Westfall.

Sam from the Throne of Glass novellas
I can't even talk about Sam. Let's move on before I start weeping. Quickly.

Tuck from Valkyrie Rising

Jase from My Life Next Door

Atticus Finch from To Kill a Mockingbird

Harry, Ron, Neville, Fred, George, Bill, and Sirius, I am giving you all detention. Report to my office immediately. Do not bring clothes.

Aragorn from The Lord of the Rings
Numair, Jonathan, and George from Tamora Pierce's Tortall universe

Marcus Flutie from the Jessica Darling series

Jeb and Morpheus from Splintered

Sam Henry from Catching Jordan 

Char from Ella Enchanted

Theodore "Laurie" Lawrence from Little Women
I was so in love with him as a child and so heartbroken by how things turned out.

Dave the Laugh from the Georgia Nicolson series


Gilbert Blythe from Anne of Green Gables

Michael Moscovitz from The Princess Diaries

Magnus Bane from The Mortal Instruments and The Infernal Devices
He's a biracial immortal warlock with a fabulous sense of style and biting wit. He also throws tremendous parties. Of course he must be mine.

Simon Lewis from The Mortal Instruments
What can I say? I like them sarcastic, bespectacled, and adept with pop culture.

Peregrine from Under the Never Sky

George Emerson from A Room With A View
I would elope with you to Florence ANY DAY.

Jesse Tuck from Tuck Everlasting

Jon Snow from A Song of Fire and Ice series
If you do not agree, then you know nothing.

 Mr. John Thornton from North and South

  6. Oh you. Everyone knows Charlie was the dreamy Weasley.

    1. I ALMOST INCLUDED CHARLIE but then I was like, would that be MEAN to poor Percy if he were the only Weasley not on there except for Mr. Weasley and we all know Mr. Weasley is a stone cold fox so what the hell let's just pretend they're all up there.

    Randi @ Cardigans, Coffee & Bookmarks

    1. THANK YOU! And yay for the Theodore Lawrence love!

  10. Wow girl, this is quite the list! When you said you took ten loosely, I was thinking you did like...15. But I totally approve of swooning over hot boys, so I'm ok with it! I LOVE PERRY. I didn't put him on my list because I obsess over him all the time, but seriously, number one in my heart.

    1. See, I was GOING to do just ten, but then I didn't know who to NOT include, and I was just like, why not, why not just go for it, and well... I have a problem.

  11. You had to cheat. You really had no choice.

    1. I am glad that you understand. I really did not.

  12. I totally understand your need to have so many!=D Here's my list:

  13. Bahahaha, in pretty much every case, I'm either about to fight you to get the guy or I totally don't see it at all. :-p

    1. I can't tell if that's a good thing or a bad thing! Haha

  14. Your list is so incredible! I like that you chose at random because I ALWAYS talk about the same ten guys - seriously. But this week I tried to branch out. Anyways... I love your entire list and am now moving Under the Never Sky up a few places on my TBR because I've seen it on almost every list.

    My Top Ten

  15. I actually counted - we have 19 in common! I love that you picked out most of Tamora Pierce's boys - LOVE THEM ALL.

  16. Totally agree with almost all of these crushes! The other ones I need to read the books. They are on my always growing TBR pile.
